    I worked at Evolent Health full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Amazing direct manager and enjoyed the people I directly worked with on a day to day basis. Good PTO plan, especially since i started before they reduced the PTO for any new hires.

    Cons

    Terrible communication between departments from different locations, approval process takes forever that it's almost impossible to hit deadlines on projects, upper management ask the same questions to answers that have been given multiple times by multiple people already (they seem lost), quarterly layoffs that put extra work on the people who are still here without compensation, CEO promises growth in company wide meetings...

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the advice of people around you (as it is one of your core values - Start by Listening) and realize that new plans take time to grow and won't be profitable in their first year. If you can't plan to take a hit from new business ventures without having to layoff people constantly, then you do not have a good business model.

    I have been working at Evolent Health full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Awesome benefits, ability to work from home , and amazing coworkers. Evolent has a knack for hiring very intelligent people.

    Cons

    Cross-company terminations. Not layoffs, but termination. Evolent lost a huge amount of their talent, only to later post positions that could have been filled by experienced personell.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees a heads up if there are upcoming budget constrictions. Many were terminated that had extensive knowledge of Evolent and essential work that is sorely missed. They were lost, not realizing this was a possibility and had to find jobs elsewhere. It was very sad to see so much talent that Evolent lost. I feel that this could have been avoided by allowing current employees an opportunity to apply for related...

    Pros

    25 days Paid Time Off

    Cons

    I have read many of the reviews and I'm going to give my opinion. I gave this company 3 stars because of uncertain times. One thing that I have to agree with, from reading other reviews is that the company has lost business and I feel it's a combination of config issues and adjudicators that don't have the proper knowledge to process claims correctly. I feel that clients are leaving because their claims are wrong. Many...

    Advice to Management

    Fix the config issues and try to rehire the good people that were let go.

    Pros

    Close to transportation downtown Chicago.

    Cons

    Like to be micromanaged? Look no further. This is the job for you. Expected to be flexible but not given flexibility. Some of the expectations make no sense at all based on current technology and telecommunications availability. Work itself is not rocket science but every call and every document is looked at and criticized without having any positive effects. Employees treated like school children. Multiple management...

    Advice to Management

    Reward and recognize those who are actually doing the work vs. Creating positions for favorites. People are being harrassed and bullied here. Time to look into it.

    Pros

    Some people are good, unlimited PTO, WFH, decent comp

    Cons

    This company is a grouping of 3 dysfunctional silos that still haven’t integrated since acquisitions in 2016. There is no stability with org changes / layoffs multiple times a year. There is no strategy aside to get more clients while the existing ones drop. Entire departments are leaving, tons of politics / rumors.

    Advice to Management

    Understand your organization, find a strategy, and communicate it to your disgruntled employees.

    Recent organisational restructuring has dampened the morale. Few benefit cuts and some apparent signs of favoritism - but i guess this happens everywhere

    Pros

    Clearer focus. As stated in other reviews, it is true that the company switched its focus too often previously, which made many employees lost in direction and much investment wasted. However, since mid-year 2019, the company has set forth five priorities, providing a very clear picture going forward. The management is transparent (finally!) about the consequence of not meeting those priorities. The organization structure...
