    Pros

    An exciting fast growing company that is great to its employees. They hire top notch individuals and encourage promotion within the organization. Very pleasant environment.

    Cons

    Corporate policy on consultants. They eliminated some consultants that were very much needed at the time. While this was a business decision, they should have backfilled these positions with full time employees.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support your employees.

    Location of office is good.
    On site cafeteria.

    Cons

    Department managers cover their butts. They say one thing and do another.
    Too many meetings.
    Management demonstrates favoritism. Gives award and positive reinforcement to favorite employees even those who do not follow the policies
    Disorganized company. Keeps expanding. Should address current issues before expanding.

    Pros

    Although this company is now WellPoint, it is still a great company. Pay is great, bonuses, flexibility, some telecommuting opportunities, and lots of growth potential.

    Cons

    Personal con is that my healthcare provider was not on the in-network list. Not sure if the health coverage has gotten better since I was there a few years ago. Main con is very long hours in some depts.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to everyone. I went to HR about my manager several times as he was doing personal business 85% of the time he was to be working, yet claiming he did all the work he had pawned off on the lower staff. They never investigated him until after I quit (and reminded them during my exit interview).

    Pros

    The pay is excellent and the co-workers and peers are exceptionally well educated.. Get along with all employed...

    Cons

    Don't care about the well being and health of their employee and very unreasonable expectations dictated by leadership with lttle or no actual experience.. Let the provider talk to associates any kind of way ...

    Advice to Management

    No advice have their picks..
