    Pros

    My salary is excellent and Anthem does offer many great benefits such as work from home, ability to make up time, free higher education through College of America, and amount of vacation days.

    Cons

    The maternity policy at Anthem is not good. 6 weeks for regular birth or C-section. The first week must use vacation days. It's not full pay and I didn't get a paycheck until I came back to work because HR wouldn't work with my doctors office. It by far was the worst experience I've ever had working for a company, the struggle to get HR to acknowledge receipt of paperwork that my doctors office sent repeatedly every day for weeks to them. Many companies are now updating their maternity benefits and I feel Anthem needs to update theirs to be competitive in the corporate world.

    Advice to Management

    Please, please consider a new maternity policy. This by far is the worst "benefit" offered to employees. Mothers should be allowed more time to bond with their new children. It has been shown to increase the retention of female employees and make companies have higher quality employees.

    Pros

    Very good company benefits. 401k match is 4%, Vacation days are accrued but start 3 weeks which includes all time off. 8 holidays a years. Bonus pool of 15% is great. Most times the company exceeds therefore more than 15% is earned. Virtual work environment is great also. Health Insurance benefits are very competitive to other situations.

    Cons

    Restructuring of the organization is a constant shuffle. Consistency on company goals and direction could be a challenge. IT work is very consistent but not well process oriented. Therefore, work intake can be crazy at times.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage innovation to the IT teams not only technically but business wise as well. The business side should be on managing the IT work, coordinating with vendor resources, and improving processes, documentation, and communication.

    Pros

    The building is awesome. Open airy environment. The office culture is professional yet laid back as long as you are hard working. The company offers amazing benefits after 90 days. Ongoing training and incredible instructors. There is room for growth at this company nationwide. Management really cares about their associates.

    Cons

    Slight favoritism in certain departments.

    Pros

    Good benefits stable company hours are very flexible

    Cons

    Management always trying to screw you out of your bonus and raises

    Advice to Management

    Make your management responsible for doing his or her work. Taking off during lunch and leaving for the rest of the day isn't responsible
