    Great company filled with exceptional people

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsNo 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.

    ConsThere 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.

    Great experience

    Credentialing Specialist II (Former Employee)
    Norfolk, VA

    ProsGreat management team, adjustable hours, competitive pay, gym available for employees, great cafe that serves breakfast and lunch.

    ConsParking was never good for employees who came in late.

    The best company I've ever worked for.

    Field Service Technician (Current Employee)
    Virginia Beach, VA

    ProsPositive 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.

    ConsContractors 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.

    Couldn't ask for a better place to work!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsI 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.

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

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

    Amerigroup is an amazing company that really lives their mission and vision

    Nurse Case Manager (Current Employee)
    Nashville, TN

    ProsThis 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. :)

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue 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.

    Awesome

    Marketing Account Manager (Current Employee)
    Savannah, GA

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work.

    Great mission, great people, great outcomes

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Virginia Beach, VA

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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep 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.

    Why work at AGP?

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Virginia Beach, VA

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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe 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.

    Excellent salary, benefits and true to their mission to help the most vulnerable population in healthcare.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe ability to be a telecommuter and be compensated well if you work hard and meet your deadlines. Your manager and direct co-workers have a hugh impact re: your job satisfaction. If you love what you do at Amerigroup, then you have a perfect job.

    ConsIf you are a Care Coordinator, you work at the least a 50 hour week, but most likely to meet your deadlines, you end out working 60-70 hours per week. Stress Management skills are key to surviving in this position.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the people working on the front lines and respect what they have to say.

    A very positive experience based on the individual's strong work values and cultural diversity.

    Field Sales & Marketing (Former Employee)

    ProsPeople focused organization( also depends on specific state location for mix of line/staff mgmt) from a mgr/supv perspective with snr mgmt regularly requesting constructive employee feedback based on concrete issues. Very respectful of employee family needs and requirements for best workplace success.

    ConsJob advancement not always based on best qualified candidate, but on popularity with mgmt.
    Internal advancement is somewhat biased by the perception(s)that mgmt.has made on where they
    see you positioned.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere is a need for various leadership to be refreshed with formal, ongoing training in areas such as interpersonal skills, employee development, true mentoring, etc.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
