    WellPoint is a great place to work.

    Implementation Coordinator (Current Employee) Charlotte, NC

    ProsThe benefits are awesome, lots of PTO, and it is the most diverse company I have ever worked for.

    ConsSince it is an insurance company, changes to company policy are happening all the time to keep up with legislative changes. This can be a bit overwhelming at times.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate with subordinates regulary to let them know "what's in it for me".

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I am WellPoint

    Pharmacist (Current Employee)

    ProsWork-life balance. Benefits, work from home, use clinical and functional skills about how Rx get processed to help real people troubleshoot issues. Use everything I know and encouraged to keep learning. Always looking to improve.

    ConsHuge company, people's experience relies a lot on their direct manager and that management branch. It also relies on their understanding of how what they do helps people, many people do not understand this. This is not unusual. Always looking to improve, upper management changes can really swing direction at times.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep in mind it is great customer service that inspires loyalty and great inter team work and understanding of healthcare as a whole that fuels great customer service. Our members are our families... Immediate and extended.

    Great place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe salary was very good for my geographic area. We had flexible work schedules and were able to work from home. The benefits were good. This was a great place to work and the people were wonderful.

    ConsThe company was bought by another , causing the closure of this office. Outsourcing of certain services was done several years before we merged and this caused layoffs.
