    I have been working at Evolent Health full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Casual dress, unlimited PTO, plenty of WFH flexibility. Good people. If you came in now, you’d have a fine experience, you just wouldn’t know what you were missing.

    Cons

    It’s just not as exciting as it used to be. It’s no longer physician led and it’s de-emphasized sophisticated care management programs. More TPA focused now. It’s a company with a bold mission that’s lost its energy. Separating into distinct business units stifles energy for the company as a whole.

    Advice to Management

    Reinvigorate the passion for changing the health of the nation.

    I have been working at Evolent Health full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Healthy snacks; flexible telework policies; great location

    Cons

    Poorly managed organization; focus is entirely on financial bottom line. Activities and decisions do not reflect verbiage of leadership. No transparency. Still a start up and boys club in many ways.

    Advice to Management

    Decisions should reflect that you actually care about the health of health plan partner members; words are empty without action. Stop investing money in crappy IT systems that don’t serve the needs of staff or clients.

    I have been working at Evolent Health full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good benefits and sabbatical after 5 years

    Cons

    The Evolent mission is to change the way health care is delivered. I realized after spending 4 years here they do not care about the client patient or employee. They care about Frank Williams only cares about being the big dog. They talk about diversity and inclusion they are run by middle aged white men. They give themselves leadship awards while they work their staff 14 hour days and cheat them out of 100% of... their bonus. The do not handle the finances properly or the 6% loss of staff would not happen. They spend money on parties instead of employees.

    Advice to Management

    Remember what you said the mission was and get back to that. Do not send pics of taking your family to Europe which cost more then most of the employees paid for their car

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

    Pros

    Progressive company with lofty goal driving transformative change in the value based health care space. While there is impressive innovation taking place across their Identify platform, most other company offerings are flat.

    Cons

    For a company that touts itself an innovation and change leader, much of the time they play the role of opportunist instead of innovator. Finding margin by operating government programs doesn't help differentiate the company from the 100's of other players that are vying for the same market share. Leaders assigned to oversee lines of business they have no prior experience in. This has stifled production, decreased... morale and fractured teams. Policies were put into place that limit career growth. This has lead to loss of talent.

    Huge drop off in talent, experience and responsiveness and from ELT to Sr. Leadership.

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

    Pros

    Great co-workers and an environment that encourages innovation and meaningful change to health care and its delivery. Culture and values here are not just lip service!

    Cons

    No organization is perfect. Having employee stock benefits as part of variable compensation would significantly improve the alignment of employees with Evolent's long term growth and success.

    Advice to Management

    Include stock as part of variable compensation. One senior executive seems to practice an "Emperor's New Clothes" management style and purge dissenting opinions which is inconsistent with the rest of the organization. Otherwise, keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Great team and talented individuals Outstanding overall mission vision and key principles Dynamic and goal oriented Huge outstanding market opportunity Wide network and variety of partners

    Cons

    Crunch times often Market is diversifying so company chases many directions at once A lot of partners who are technologically or ideologically not on the same page

    Advice to Management

    New initiatives need clearer alignment with the existing solutions. Depth and quality (vs. breadth/quantity) needs more attention, IMO.

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

    Pros

    There are lots of smart and friendly staff who genuinely believe in the organization's vision. The benefit package is one of the best I've ever had.

    Cons

    The company has grown too fast and the organization hasn't been able to develop a consistent culture. Some teams are better than others, but the below characterize some of the themes I experienced across the company. 1) There are many people in management positions that have little or no leadership experience, which results in micro-management and poor use of talent. 2) Lack of collaboration across the... company due to politics at the upper levels of management. Often middle management and staff are put into no-win situations because these politics. 3) Many clients have been over-sold and under-delivered on services and products. This creates a lot of chaos within the company because there is often a scramble to address client concerns. 4) There are few employees with actual experience within a health system. Most have consulting or health plan experience. As a result, most products and services are very conceptual in nature and difficult to implement because the operational details have not been considered.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate how you hire/promote people into leadership roles. Make sure that people in those roles have the skills and experience needed to be successful and develop their direct reports.

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

    Pros

    Dynamic - lots of projects happening simultaneously Great opportunity to grow and learn Extremely high caliber of overall talent at all levels throughout the organization

    Cons

    Startup environment - scope and structure of projects is constantly in flux Evolving set of expectations Bit of a trial by fire the first few weeks until you can get up to speed
