My 6 and 1/2 years at Humana were some of the best of my career.
Pros: Great work environment, offices, equipment, PTO arrangements, excellent benefits & 401-K Plans
Cons: Health Care Reform legislation, the Affordable Care Act, changed the way carriers like Humana and United Health Care had to conduct business, put stress and strain on the staff, particularly we sales folks.
I was based in the Denver office, where my days often started with staff meeting, where sales, contracting, ethics & compliance issues, along with training, best practices, weekly & quarterly reporting on projections. Discussed wins & losses. I always learned much when these meetings were transparent. I loved my co-workers, they became family to me. I was challenged by the effects of health care reform and the Affordable Care Act had on Humana as a company. The massive regulatory changes due to ACA directly influenced Humana's bottom line so that "trickle-down-effect" lowered morale & brought a sense of fear into the ranks. I was happiest when I landed a BIG case, where I was able to save my client significant money & helped him to better provide more modern, age-appropriate health care for his aging employees and retirees.
