The Worst Leadership
Manager (Former Employee) –  RemoteJuly 15, 2018
Unhealthy leadership style permeating what was once a fine organization. A deliberate pattern of bullying and ridding company of legacy employees. Ageism is rampant. Leadership is only interested in the bottom line with a fake mission of becoming a destination culture. Stay far away from this organization.
Pros
Still some fine people working there
Cons
Too many layoffs to count; with people almost always replaced by much younger, less qualified employees

Once a leader, now a has been led by incompetent management
Business Analyst (Current Employee) –  Eagan, MNNovember 24, 2017
StayWell was once a leader in the health management business. It was led by people well respected in the industry with credentials health management. It produced solutions that no one else has.

Today it’s led by corporate climbers with absolutely no credentials in this industry whose only goal is to create more meaningless bullet points for their linked in profiles before they move on their their next job.

Upper management is lost as to where it needs to go so it spends its time chasing its far more nimble competition. StayWell is desperate for new clients and will put out half baked solutions in the hopes of securing any new revenue. Meanwhile, it continues to hemorrhage existing clients and is fast falling being passed by its competitors.
Pros
Flexible work environment
Cons
Upper managment

Low salaries and long hours
Communications Manager, Campaigns and ToolKit (Former Employee) –  Saint Paul, MNOctober 11, 2017
After the company was sold the company really struggled with management and retaining talented employees. Layoffs took its toll on already maxed staff. Salaries were lower than industry standard.

Its a job
Enrollment Specialist (Current Employee) –  Eagan, MNApril 8, 2016
The Enrollment department is a revolving door for new hires, and most employees leave within a few months. The department is very flexible and understanding however management could be better and there is little to no room for advancement.

Interesting but very isolating working from home.
Clinical Nurse Counsultant (Current Employee) –  Saint Paul, MNOctober 11, 2015
A typical day at work is calling scheduled participants to teach them about their diabetes, COPD, asthma, heart failure, etc. There are a few hours per day on a predictive dialer system where we receive calls of people who have answered when dialed by the PDS system. We communicate with colleagues through instant messaging. Meetings are conducted by phone sometimes utilizing Ready Talk system. Classes are also conducted in this manner. We use Motivational Interviewing techniques when speaking with participants in the program. We deal with emergent situations via instant messaging and phone. The most difficult part of the job is when we speak with participants who don't really want to be in the program but feel they are forced to participate by employers who offer incentives to lower insurance premiums for participation. The most enjoyable part of the job is when people are motivated to learn and when we are able to make a real difference for them.
Pros
Working from home, participants who want to learn.
Cons
Working from home because it can also be isolating.
