Pros: Cheap gym membership, solid benefits
Cons: Poor attitude from management, poor pay, inflexible hours
To be clear, as far as Healthcare companies go Emblem Health is not awful, but as far as companies functioning in modern culture Emblem is far behind. Their workplace environment is rigid; they promote employees putting forth ideas for change, but will rarely if ever take them into account. They don't allow working from home as a company policy even if you have a company laptop, unless you are a designated telecommuter. A simple example: during a severe snowstorm this past winter, I could have been able to easily log in and complete my daily functions from home (and I'm a lead!) but they wouldn't allow it and my choices were either take a PTO day, or walk in and risk injury or getting stuck in transit (mind you, my daily commute involves a 25 minute walk to the office from World Trade Center, so if it's snowing, that's a miserably long and downhill walk that is rarely shoveled).
Management is a double edged sword. Where some managers 'get it' and work with you and realize that their employees are people who also exist outside of the workplace, many consider them strict 9-5'ers (and that time card is strict, too) and will not even allow them a quick break to get coffee or just rest you eyes from staring at a PC.
I want to clarify that I am rarely one to complain about work, it's something we all have to do and we should be considered lucky to even have a job given the market, but when your managers are even repeatedly telling you that they don't want to work there, it is hard to be prideful in your company or put forward what could be considered a reasonable daily – more... effort.
In addition, your job function is rarely if ever defined. I actually appreciate an evolving role in a company, but when you're dropped into a new role and sometimes not even told (!!!) let alone trained, it causes discomfort and confusion. The company has been shaken up a lot recently and because of this, every role seems nebulous and lacking clear definition. I am an analyst and I am working on things that are completely outside of my scope (medical rates management and product care). It's hard to stay focused on your job when you don't even have a solid handle on how to perform it.
One positive, the gym membership in the building is reasonably priced and their staff are excellent, so should you have time before or after work they are a great alternative to outside fitness centers. – less
