    Pros

    This is probably the most laid back and easy going place I have worked for. The people are helpful when you have questions. My manager is friendly and is very willing to work with you to keep your work/life balance in order. The pay is great and the benefits are reasonable. Time off is excellent.

    Cons

    A lot of the needed programs seem to fluctuate in functionality. I think they need more onsite IT people.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Centene is a great company to work for. Growth opportunities due to several division under the Centene umbrella. Ability to transfer. Great a pay. Benefits and leadership. Awesome people to work for and with.

    Cons

    SOPs and Process Changes. However, this is the case with any large corporation. Appears that the HR process for applying for positions could be streamlined and a bit more convenient.

    Pros

    Outstanding pay - significantly higher than competitors
    Wonderful benefits (insurance, 401k, bonuses)
    Flexible schedule
    Advancement opportunity (promote within)

    Cons

    Not the best training. Instead of a typical training consisting of traditional methods, it's basically shadowing a more experienced employee until you catch on or minimal time spent shadowing and then "sink or swim" kind of thing.

    Advice to Management

    More one-on-one! Check-in with your employees...work related and on a personal level. Get to know them and build a relationship.
