    I worked at Simplyhealth full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Colleagues were knowledgeable Good add on benefits of pension contributions and health plan

    Cons

    Lack of strategy and direction Ancient systems make change virtually impossible Inability to keep skills up to date Poor management who are largely invisible to the company Always paying consultants vast amounts of money to tell them things they already know ..then never acting on the findings

    Advice to Management

    There is another restructure, this time putting everything back to how it was three years ago. Perhaps this will help clarify direction and purpose. The company has fantastic intentions to help people access the healthcare they need...they just can't quite deliver!

    Pros

    The salary is fine but benefits are very good. The products are good.

    Cons

    Very haphazzard approach to what they are doing and where they are going. Sometimes it is all very bizarre. They pretend to be sincere but it's all part of a show.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff more, stop having favourites, be genuine.

    Cons

    Not trusted No empowerment Not listened too Not valued

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your expert staff. They are the ones that could help you turn the business around. There are so many clever talented people in the business however their talents and knowledge are overlooked by political arguments at senior levels. There is too much pitting one manager against another instead of working together as a team.
