    I worked at Amerigroup full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good for entry level people wanting to get into managed care. Employees are dedicated to the Medicaid population at all levels.

    Cons

    Employees aren't valued for their experience, initiative or hard work by senior management. Little, if any, flexibility in schedules and no work at home opportunities. Senior management is excessively controlling and stifles creative thinking. In spite of this many employees continue to focus on the member and receive personal rewards for a job well done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to acknowledge the abundance of talent within the organization and foster this. Loosen the reigns and allow decision isn't making throughout middle management. Treat your employees with the respect they deserve- not just your favored departments

    I have been working at Amerigroup full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They pay dbl time and a half on holidays

    Cons

    No chance for advancement. You are better off going elsewhere.. To much favoritism and due to this, I find it a hostile environment. LPNs supervising RNs. LPNs making more money than some RNs. High turn over rate. High firing rate. It's sad because I see a lot of good people leaving everyday.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No comment... management only looking out for themselves and you are just a number. Can never change that with this company.

    I have been working at Amerigroup full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Brand new office, up-to-date technology, in the business of helping people while saving the State money on it's Medicaid program.

    Cons

    Little to no control over processes as most everything is handled by a "team" at the Corporate office. President is a micro-manager who has poor business etiquette and only trusts a few within the local leadership team. VERY POOR raises, even if you are considered a "top performer."

    There 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.
