Supportive culture where you don't need to check your experience at the front door...
Manager-IT Operations-Enterprise Tools Support (Current Employee) – 1561 SW 1st Ave, Portland, OR 97201 – August 29, 2015
Cambia embraces new ideas and experiences that employees bring from previous job or schooling. The culture values hard work, however, there is flexibility around hours as needed or working remotely. There is an open atmosphere for sharing information, good or bad news, because of the continuous improvement direction. Since I'm in Operations, first thing I do every day is to check for system performance and how my team(s) need to engage in issues. We have a morning Management Stand-up that give a great overview of the previous day's performance so we can organize to address those issues that are slowing customer service reps, claims processors, sales representatives so impacts to productivity are minimal. Then, we work on the improvement projects that are clearly set in the Quarterly Goals. Upper Management is readily available to remove barriers to making improvement. Cambia is in a formative state do to changes and plans brought about due to the Affordable Care Act, and seem a little behind the curve on this. Recently they have be adding a relatively high number of C-Level employees that puzzles the rank and file as we continue focus on cost reductions. Overall, the Cambia Cause to create more transparency and sustainability to the health care market is highly motivating, and we feel aligned and energized by it.

Cost reductions and being asked to do more with less, Two reductions in force in 2014 to get the right skills, and hiring what seems to be a high number of C-level position.
