In most ways this was an average to above-average job; the pay was enough for me, the PTO was flexible in application, and management was mostly pleasant to interact with. However, they've recently shed a good third of their workforce to outsourcing recently including myself, so I'm unsure of whether a prospective hire today can expect the same experience I had. They had a lot of benefits such as gym memberships, incredibly fancy water filters, and collaboration rooms. Sort of like they had seen what the workplace looks like at Google or Meta and tried to replicate it. But insurance isn't software (which is anything but rote). Personally I'd have forgone all of it for a little extra in salary compensation.
The company changes CEOs too frequently! They all have a different vision of the company and the newest rather travel and see Broadway musicals than be in the office. The company outsourced positions to "help with cost of premuims" but won't help with the cost of living for current employees. There are MANY current employees that make extremely less than new employees coming aboard. This job had NO work life balance at all. You are forced to figure out how to manage your household, take care of children and your own medical issues all with 5 excused absences a year! We even have to pay our own medical at an outrageous cost! Work from home showed increased production during Civid but then pulled the option in late 2021 and told us that it would no longer be allowed because it doesnt work. The company says it's trying to make Hawaiis health better but doesn't care about the health of their employees. Since this job, I've started mental health meds and seeing a professional weekly! They have stopped any raises and incentives since the begining of Covid. Currently saying they won't bring them back because not enough money. But our department alone has had over 10 people leave this job since January 2022 and most jobs have been cut or outsourced. They have become more about production, numbers and call volume versus actually helping members.
I worked here for 5 years. I enjoyed it at first but it got tougher once you work with management more. They hire managers and supervisors that are not fitting. Management is really bad here.
It's a great place to work however you need to be able to take on stress be adaptable on changes. Doing more than one task at a time and be able to.meet deadlines. Do more than one task at a time whole meeting your deadlines If you not dependable please don't apply because your co-workers depend on you as well as the customers
Its an ok job to work for but can be challenging. Choose your battles. Not every job is perfect. There's pros and cons to every job and it's all about choosing what kind of stress you want to deal with. This job can be mentally & emotionally challenging. But floor RN jobs are mentally, emotionally, and physically draining.
