AMISYS Programmer (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – October 31, 2018
It was great---until the company went into receivership and we all got laid-off for 6 months.
I suppose it happens. Learning you're losing your job listening to NPR while driving into work is a tad rough. Being locked out of the building until they get word from the receiver that we were allowed in the building was even worse.
Fast paced fun environment with a lot of great people

Harvard pilgrim was a great place to work. My job was very interesting and fast paced and the people I worked with were great and very diverse. My manager had an open door policy and was always willing to help and support me.
Enterprise Security Architect (Former Employee) – Wellesley, MA – October 18, 2018
Harvard Pilgrim went into receivership under the state of MA in 1999 - much of the mgmt present during that period were allowed to remain managing the company, and Ross Perot was brought in to manage the IT services of the company. This poor level of mgmt. were maintained until Perot systems were purchased by Dell, upon which IT languished again. While there are many good people there - they are inexperienced in their roles, and follow closely the examples set out in the model of the Peter Principle.
Senior Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Wellesley, MA – October 1, 2018
Good workers but management is totally lost. Hiring senior management people who quit in one year or are fired in less than 2 years. Management is shuffled and re-shuffled. Decisions are always reactionary, confused, sneaky.Benefits have been severely cut with no honest, forthright communication at all. Company is treading water and has lost its identity.
Senior Member Services Representative (Former Employee) – Quincy, MA – June 7, 2018
Great place to work. Advancement is possible within member services and the company. It might get a little clicky but that won't stop you from doing your job. Orientation period is thorough and a lot of information is learned.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Quincy, MA – May 6, 2018
As a member service representative you are starting at an entry level. That can be a good and a bad thing, it's good because you learn a little bit about every department. The bad is turn over is high because it's competitive to move up in the company. This company has amazing benefits with all the time off and health care but it's a huge department and it can actually be difficult to take the days you want/need off. Even though you're hourly you're basically on salary because there is no unpaid time off which is a good and bad thing. The other thing that's tough is 40 hours of unpaid time off, it seems like a lot but it's hard if you have children and medical issues. Overall the job is good, it's pretty easy you answer the phone and if you need to open service requests for members. The only thing that can be difficult is the escalated members which I think in this position the start rate should be higher because you do deal with a lot of angry people.
Enrollment Associate, (Former Employee) – Quincy, MA – April 26, 2018
Working for Harvard Pilgrim ten years ago was very rewarding my work day consisted of researching applicants information in the Medicare data base. this was the First Seniority Insurance, where the applicants had to have Medicare part A & B to be insured .
The most difficult part of this job was when Medicare part D was first implemented and it was very difficult to explained it to the senior members because we were not given a clear explanation from Mass health our selves.This was a very stressful time for the company.
Management really worked hard to get us the information and training we needed to helped the members through this period.

Senior RFP Proposal Coordinator/Process Leader (Former Employee) – Wellesley, MA – April 19, 2018
Right now, working in the field of healthcare is very stressful. In Massachusetts the healthcare market is very competitive and with the constant changes occurring in this market, the stress on employees is palpable. That being said, Harvard Pilgrim has a very progressive HR policy and from a culture point of view this is a very nice place to work,
Project Management Intern (Former Employee) – Wellesley, MA – April 9, 2018
I enjoyed my time there, the people were supportive and caring. I would highly recommend them as an employer. This position was for an internship, however they allowed me to learn and grow and gain new skills in a professional setting.
