Jr. Business Analyst (Former Employee), Toronto, ONApril 19, 2014
eHealth was also one of my co-op placements. It gave me a lot of knowledge in IT related risk management which I found to be very relevant to my economics major in school. The people were great to work with and allowed me to contribute to key team projects.

Toxic Environment
IT Managemnt (Former Employee), TorontoOctober 28, 2013
Pros: great experience on how not to manage an it orgainization
Cons: too many to mention
I worked at eHealth for 5 years in the Operations department. It was a culture based on mismanagement, lack of trust, fear and cronyism.

Their technology was woefully out of date and barely capable of maintaining what little service they provided. They had long ago decided to design everything themselves rather than implement tried and true off the – more... shelf applications.They expected their staff to make up for this with burn out inducing long hours and apology based client interaction.

Entire departments ceased to function and spent their scant work hours web surfing. Their workload was duplicated by contractors. The waste of money was mind boggling. It was rare to find the essential staff to assist in the process over results bureaucracy required to deliver essential services still in the office after 3:00 PM.

Process and service improvement suggestions were frowned upon. Any good people quickly moved on. – less

Long hours, stressful and mismanaged environment, no work life balance.
Tier 3 Support (Former Employee), TorontoJuly 9, 2013
Pros: new technologies, bleeding edge
Cons: long hours, no work life balance, stress and politics. no recognition.
I worked at eHealth for 2 years in their data center operations department. I was hired as a senior member / Tier 3, which essentially means you are expected to do everything on your own with no prior training or support from your team. Management was never supportive and focused on pleasing highly paid contractors who bullied and controlled the full – more... time team. Knowledgeable coworkers are few and far in between and too overworked and stressed to help. Lots of unqualified team members who surf the web while I was sweating on implementing highly complex solutions for eHealth under the gun. No recognition for my efforts, just micromanagement and lack of direction from management. Only positive side is the variety of technologies to learn but not worth it for all the stress and being treated unfairly and used for your technical skills and then tossed aside. Politics is everything, results mean nothing. – less

Do not work here
Security Analyst (Former Employee), Toronto, ONFebruary 26, 2013
Cons: sink or swim
Management does not practice what it preaches. Staff are comfortable and complacent and resistant to changes that would require any effort or self-improvement. Politics take priority over actual job performance.

Toxic work enviornment
All departments (Former Employee), Toronto, ONNovember 4, 2012
Pros: benefits are good
Cons: departments can be restructured easily for no reason.
A very political toxic environment. Some people are hard working, yet others give the agency a hard name. Sr management waste time on pet projects. Little or nothing learned from the scandal a few years ago.

Operations Analyst (Former Employee), Toronto, ONMay 20, 2012
eHealth Ontario was a great place to work. I enjoyed the efforts that they made during my tenure to have a smooth and informative on-boarding period. The team at eHealth is also committed to creating a fun and interesting environment as they continue to add programs and developmental opportunities, like a Toastmasters Club, Yoga, Kickboxing, and Volunteering – more... efforts. It's an awesome place to work and I would go back in a heartbeat! – less
