    Pros

    The company is going through measured growth. This means there are many chances to advance within the company. The campus is a very nice place to work.

    Cons

    Some areas in the company are poorly managed and work people to death due to large workloads. This results in high turnover and loss of knowledge.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more development to employees. Provide the budget to areas that are overworked like Enrollment. Spend a little more to retain good people. The costs of constantly retraining and of lost knowledge are too great.

    Pros

    We serve some of the most vulnerable populations. Providing health-care coverage to the aged, children, the poor. Volunteering your time is highly encouraged. I love the fact that we help communities across the country.

    Cons

    The growing pains have been hard, but with the new focus from leadership to improve infrastructure there is light at the end of the tunnel.

    Advice to Management

    Senior leadership needs to keep the focus. We are seeing improvement.

    Pros

    I've been with WellCare several years and have seen MANY changes - some good and some not-so-good. In the last 12 months, we've had a complete turnover in exec leadership - for the better, in my opinion. We now have clear, measurable and manageable expectations, plus a first-time-ever leadership development program which holds all people-managers to a high degree of accountability for themselves and their teams. PTO, compensation and benefits are all satisfactory, plus the current leadership really means it when they say that it's important to have a healthy work-life balance (used to be just lip service).

    But most of all - the people who receive their healthcare coverage from WellCare are the best reason of all to work here. Whether you're a claims analyst or a case manager or a customer service rep, you know you are doing something to help someone who needs you to do your job and do it well.

    Cons

    Tight budget = very little wiggle room; historical inconsistency of expectations depending on which department you're in; still fighting some of the "but that's the way we've always done it" mentality. Working our way into the 21st century from the tech perspective, and employee training still has a long way to go but it's improving.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work on culture change, transparency and top-down accountability.
