    Pros

    Although this company is now WellPoint, it is still a great company. Pay is great, bonuses, flexibility, some telecommuting opportunities, and lots of growth potential.

    Cons

    Personal con is that my healthcare provider was not on the in-network list. Not sure if the health coverage has gotten better since I was there a few years ago. Main con is very long hours in some depts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to everyone. I went to HR about my manager several times as he was doing personal business 85% of the time he was to be working, yet claiming he did all the work he had pawned off on the lower staff. They never investigated him until after I quit (and reminded them during my exit interview).

    Pros

    No shortage of work so you will never be bored; Great work environment, filled with highly intelligent and hard-working people. Benefits are also very good.

    Cons

    There are some growing pains following the merger with WLP. At least on the Government Business side, the departments can seem under-staffed... many people work very long hours.

    I have been working at Amerigroup full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Positive and friendly atmosphere up until mid-level, don't interact with the top tiers so can't comment.
    Inhouse breakfast and lunch facilities at most corporate sites, which while pricy, are pretty high quality.
    Company gym at corporate location.
    Payscale is competitive with government positions for the same fields.
    Overtime always available, in excess of the mandatory overtime.

    Cons

    Contractors rarely make the jump to employees, and will be baited along with the promise of a permanent position for years.
    Interdepartmental promotion within IT subsections is actively denied, to retain talent in low-tier positions.
    Mandatory overtime.

    I have been working at Amerigroup full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I work at one of the Amerigroup Texas plans, and thus far, at our plan, we are very supportive of each other. The overall morale in our plan is positive, we feel good knowing that we make a difference in our member's lives. The majority of us value our positions with Amerigroup, and know that we are fortunate to be in our current roles. I've had jobs that I truly dreaded reporting to work to each day, however, the atmosphere is positive, very family oriented. For the most part, we are allowed flexibility in our work schedule, with many of our associates working from home as teleworkers, and others working from home one day a week.

    Cons

    If I had to list a 'con', perhaps that we need more office space.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to support your associates and listen to their suggestions or concerns, as they are the ones who make you shine in your position!

    Pros

    This company feels like a huge family.
    Employees are listened to when change is needed and are included in the change process.
    Leadership is involved on all levels, has open door policies, and it's not uncommon to see the CEO walking around and stopping by your desk during the day to see how you are doing.
    A good work ethic is rewarded with awards, acknowledgements, surprise parties and monetary bonuses.
    I can't say enough about this MCO because they truly have a heart and want to ensure that their members get the care that they need. Plan on retiring here as long as they will keep me. :)

    Cons

    Some departments could really use additional staff and as the company continues to grow I'm sure this will happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue doing what you are doing. Continue making employees at all levels a part of the decision making and letting them (us) know that we are appreciated. Definitely never change your Vision and Mission.

    Pros

    Management and associates embody the mission of caring for those who need a little help. Dynamic company with lots of growth.

    Cons

    A lot is expected of everyone in growth projections. Political environment, the election, budget shortfalls and the supreme court adds uncertainty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the focus on the mission. The attention given to quality over the past few years is making a difference and makes associates even prouder to work here.

    Pros

    Great company. They value your opinion and do not discriminate. They are very diverse. Management is diverse also with minorities.

    Cons

    Once you are hired, you will only get the minimum increase when being promoted. So get your money up front!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company is very large and I believe they should offer additional benefits. The healthcare benefits are standard, but maybe an increase in tuition reimbursement for graduate students would be a plus.
