    I have been working at Evolent Health full-time

    Pros

    Work life balance, PTO, great people, pay

    Cons

    So many recent changes that it's difficult to know where to focus as it feels like we are just waiting for priorities to shift again. It's not "fun" to work here any more. No events or team building activities.

    Advice to Management

    It sounds so silly, but having no events or team-bonding activities to look forward to throughout the year adds more to the burnout. I wouldn't have thought that those things were that important prior to them being discontinued. Senior Leadership and certain teams within BD or GTM seem to still have funds to do activities -- but the rest of the business, not so much. Senior leaders go on "retreats". That kind of thing...

    We completely understand what you mean. We miss having team bonding events and activities as well. There are loads of alternatives to company sponsored events and we’d be happy to help brain storm (team pizza lunches, utilizing quarterly volunteer days as a team, etc.) Please let ...

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

    Pros

    Work life balance, compensation, opportunity to advance (if you know the right people), great people to work with. Opportunity to learn through different projects.

    Cons

    HR doesn't respond to internal job applicants and when you follow up they still don't (very rude, leaves you feeling disregarded) The company is focusing too hard on obtaining new clients in different lines of business, instead of focusing within to see if the...

    Advice to Management

    Take a pause from taking on new clients for at least 6 months because the employees who you leave to deal with the new clients are having a hard time based on minimal resources and not enough experts or experienced people with the different lines of business. Place people in leadership roles that actually know the clients line of business.

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

    Pros

    The front line people who did the grunt work. The pay was on the low end compared to market, but not completely out of range. Benefits (PTO, 401K, Bonus, Health Insurance+) were in the top range until the changed came in Feb 2019. Work/Life balance was on par.

    Cons

    Where do I begin: Lack of focus; leadership at every level DOES NOT support the people who sacrifice nights, weekends, and time off to make sure projects succeed only to be laid off; very siloed environment, worse if you are remote; consultant heavy nature; no room for growth or advancement or pay increase; favoritism; rapid growth without clear vision or stability; clear bias in promotions; lack of transparency; lack...

    Advice to Management

    You've had plenty of time to make change. The problems with the culture and company have been reflected in financial performance, contract negotiations, engagement surveys, exit interviews, feedback from the Under Represented Minorities group, and many other sources, but your choice to play favorites and cover your eyes to the problems at hand will continue to result in your failures.
