I have been working at Centene full-time for more than 3 yearsPros
Beautiful HQ in Clayton. Tons of Perks offered such as car wash on site, dry cleaning, clinic, etc.
Decent benefits - besides the fact you work in Managing Medicaid HMO's and are in insurance industry - premiums could def. be better for such a large corporation.Cons
If you are in any production position expect mandatory over time. As in Years of it.
Upper Management does NOT have time for training; being available; etc. Expect managers to multi task, such as email, IM, Phone and constant co-workers walking in at all times.
If you aren't one to agree and be willing to do all asked of you (regardless how you feel) - do not expect promotions.
Can work all the overtime you want from home remotely but no options (often) to work from home otherwise. As example, there are many, MANY Jefferson County and Illinois workers for Centene that are hired on at HQ in Clayton - at any moment you maybe moved to Chesterfield which is much more of a hassle, and further commute for many coming in these two directions. 80% at one time of a department worked in Jefferson County as example. 80%!
Lack of training in general. Much of the training (department wise) is insufficient.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Most of you are "over worked" and "overwhelmed." I am surprised how well many managers and directors "balance' and "maintain" their work load. Understating this is a fact pace quickly growing corporation the work is never done, but do not "bark" orders to your employees. Many employees are working countless overtime hours, most being salary yes, but unfair amounts of time away from family life. That does not seem to matter. There needs to be some major compromise in many places. As a Manager and Director you position is also to protect and guide your employees under you...take the time to listen to them..and stand up for them and compromise.Negative OutlookNo opinion of CEO
