    I worked at Evolent Health full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    -the possibility of remote work

    Cons

    -a true sense that employees are disposable.

    Advice to Management

    I worked for Evolent for just about 5 years and was let go when one of their contracts fell through. I had excellent reviews and was of the longest standing employees in my position. There was a similar position with another one of their clients when I left and I interviewed for it but it was given to someone who was with the company for under a year. So years of service and top reviews meant NOTHING to Evolent and...

    I worked at Evolent Health full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The company does some innovative work in value-based care, so there is opportunity to gain experience in those models (if the company stays afloat...).

    Cons

    The company mission ("change the health of the nation by changing the way health care is delivered") has always been vague, but they were still able to bring in good clients due to UPMC/Advisory Board connections and brand recognition. Now the downsides of having no articulable mission have come full circle and resulted in a disorganized and directionless company that appears to be sinking. Don't join unless you have...

    I have been working at Evolent Health full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I love most of my colleagues, the ones who remain, that is.

    Cons

    Financial distress, lack of communication - the good 'ol boys club runs the show. Yesterday, 6/19, was our 2nd round of layoffs for the calendar year - so we're at about 500 let go to date. Rumor has it there's another round coming in Q3 - so layoffs may be the new norm. Seriously, do not come here unless you want to be in absolute chaos for likely a short amount of time. Any positive reviews lately must be from folks...

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

    Pros

    - 5 weeks of vacation - paid holidays

    Cons

    - management very unorganized - job descriptions and responsibilities constantly change

    Advice to Management

    - the communication between management and supervisor needs to be more transparent and honest. - Example: after Passport-Evolent merger, Manager told everyone in a meeting that all of the dept jobs were safe. Less than 2 weeks later, they laid off several employees.

    Pros

    The people that work on the ground floor are amazing people

      Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I have been working at Evolent Health full-time

      Pros

      - Built a great network of helpful, smart, and friendly people in healthcare

      Cons

      - Unclear lines of accountability and rapid pivots in company strategy make it challenging to institutionalize knowledge

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

      Pros

      The benefits are mediocre at best, until they dump you for all the hard work you put in.

      Cons

      They’ll tell you how much of a valuable asset you are and shower you with fake praise until they blindside you with no bonus, a pay cut, then a lay-off because they can’t keep control of their finances. Horrible management on all levels. What’s interesting to me is they’re laying off hundreds of people, but senior leadership members take home almost half a million dollars each year in salary.

      Advice to Management

      Get it together, please. A lot of us are single parents trying to scrape by. Maybe if you truly valued your employees and quit buying out other companies while you’re already in the red, you’ll stop sinking and our kids won’t end up homeless.

      Pros

      People Rooftop patio WFH options PTO Food options in the area Insurance benefits even though some plans were overpriced

      Cons

      Blatant favoritism when it came to promotions or raises in certain departments Lay offs are becoming more frequent the older the company gets Rx plan was mediocre,

      Advice to Management

      I know there was an initiative to stop favoritism raises and promotions but also look into people who haven't been promoted as frequently as others as well. While lay offs are unfortunate, some type of notice or assistance with job placement for those about to be laid off would be helpful. Ex. when Blizzard laid off employees they helped employees get interviews with similar companies in the area.
