    I have been working at Centene full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Benefits, a lot of opportunities, and dedicated people who truly care about making a difference..

    Cons

    No work life balance, executive leadership is too set in not adapting to change, displays distrust of employees by refusing to allow work from home and flexible schedules. We’re bleeding out talent and losing quality employees to other companies who practice WFH and flexible schedules and makes hiring and retention stressful and challenging.

    I worked at Centene for more than a year

    Pros

    Good leadership and opportunities to grow within the company. However the Employee need to have that self-determination to take the leap. Centene recently developed good benefits like the paid parental leave, though very late in the corporate world among other pro-employee companies in Healthcare.

    Cons

    There is more room to grow for HR in employee retention. The Company is more focused for having appetite on big acquisitions, whereas contributing to Employee 401(k) savings to vesting 100% only when reached 5 year tenure, which is absurd. No Work/Life balance.
