Generally great company with competitive pay & benefits; however, varies significantly by department.

I worked at WellPoint full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Stable company overall; competitive benefits; executive management has programs to identify "High Potential" associates and presents those identified with challenges and opportunities to succeed. Compared to other companies, there seems to be less politicking by management. Less friction between departments than at some competitors.

Cons

Certain decisions are made at Executive level do not seem to consider the impact to lower levels. I was never personally impacted by this but know of others who were. This probably comes with any big corporation, though. All my managers were fair-good except one; who was ultimately removed from a management role.

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

    Pros

    Consistent employment. Never any news of "downsizing".

    Cons

    Felt Underpaid for the amount of work. Worked an average of 5-10 hrs of overtime a week without compensation. Got more respect from the clients and general population than from company managment. Was told consisitently "It is what it is". High turnaround times (dictated by contract) increases stress level of the job. Lost 6 nurses in a month. There were only 12 on staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should be better compensation for the "professional" role desired by the corporation. Nurses continually have the highest "trustworthy" ratings on a consistent basis according to Press-Gainey. Profit before people was uttered many times in the office. You should review how much time and money are required for new hire re-training; it is more cost effective to keep you employees content. My opinion of overworked and underpaid was shared by many coworkers. Management was treated well.

    The company is getting bigger and better everyday and there is a good chance to learn new things at work.

    Cons

    only work - no personal life, Pantry doesn't even have a coffee machine.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please treat employees as human beings and do not put their life at stake for company's prosperity.
