    I worked at WellPoint

    Pros

    Good balance between work and life. The benefits provided by the company are competitive.. Options to work from home.

    Cons

    There are not very many cons - if any that I can think of - other that the typical large company reorganization.

    I have been working at WellPoint full-time

    Pros

    They offer wonderful benefits, and opportunities to expand one's educational horizons, a decent employee referral plan, and 401-k. Opportunities for cross country employment, nationally recognized firm. Strong position on Wall Street, not a "Johnny Come Lately" Firm.

    Cons

    1.They are not a top payer in the industry as compared to their competitors,
    2.Specifically for my region, the gate keepers maintain a certain demographic for Management positions,overall crony-ism.
    3 Departmental administration out of touch with the realities of the program, and display a general lack of concern for employee concerns.
    4. Poor communication between Mgmt and staff.
    5.Dishonest "open-door" policy,

    Former Employee - Customer Care Representative I in Cape Girardeau, MO

    I worked at WellPoint full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Job advancement and a variety of opportunities are available to those who are willing to work diligently. The salaries are competitive and the benefits are amazing.

    Cons

    It can be difficult to find a good work/life balance. Salaries are based on location, so this can be a con for those who live in lower socio-economic areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the lines of communication open, support those below you, and be very clear about the goals and objectives for EACH person.
