    Pros

    This is probably the most laid back and easy going place I have worked for. The people are helpful when you have questions. My manager is friendly and is very willing to work with you to keep your work/life balance in order. The pay is great and the benefits are reasonable. Time off is excellent.

    Cons

    A lot of the needed programs seem to fluctuate in functionality. I think they need more onsite IT people.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    If you work hard and you are smart, you will be recognized. New positions within the many Centene companies are always open, and if you run into a ceiling somewhere, you can look elsewhere.

    Cons

    Growing company, chronically understaffed. You must manage your own time and projects.

    Advice to Management

    Keep recognizing hard work

    Pros

    Recognition for excellence, good pay and benefits, excellent learning experience, opportunities for growth, worked with a variety of fortune 500 companies.

    Cons

    Rigid productivity measures which prevent thorough health interventions for high risk participants, high call volumes limit time for critical thinking, call evaluations allow zero error, and tasks were delegated to licensed professionals that can be completed by DTR's or assistants instead.

    Advice to Management

    Change productivity measures to reflect participants risk level thus allowing lengthier assessments for high risk and shorten times for low risk. Give health care professional ability to make judgement calls on participants needs and delegate other tasks such as scheduling to non-health coaches.

    Pros

    Centene is a great company to work for. Growth opportunities due to several division under the Centene umbrella. Ability to transfer. Great a pay. Benefits and leadership. Awesome people to work for and with.

    Cons

    SOPs and Process Changes. However, this is the case with any large corporation. Appears that the HR process for applying for positions could be streamlined and a bit more convenient.

    Pros

    *Free Parking *Good Benefits *On-site Walgreens pharmacy *On-site Dr. that requires no co-pay *Training *Flexible Schedule

    Cons

    *Gym -- You pay $20 / month for a billion dollar HEALTH company to use their gym *HR doesn't know which end is up. Employee Referral program is a joke. I stopped referring highly qualified individuals because they won't get a call - only a rejection letter. *It's not about what you know, it's about WHO you know. Want to be in management? Start leaching onto a manager as soon as you step foot in the door. *Work Life Balance (They don't know what it is.) *Work From Home is not allowed per CEO. *Favortism is bad. *Do not hire correct management and then never get rid of bad management. *Professional Dress *Employee Engagement (Mgmt say they're working on this, but it's been two years and no results yet..) After reading thru all of the reviews, I am convinced (as one reviewer said) that HR writes reviews regularly on this site. FUTURE / POSSIBLE EMPLOYEES BEWARE!!

    Pros

    None that I could find in the 3 years I was there. Out of the 5 manage care companies for WA state this one has the highest volume of complaints from members and providers and they really do not care to change.

    Cons

    Hostile work environment, no training, management does not have a clue nor do they care and corporate is the same. They only care about the bottom line and not the health of the member or staff. This company changes stats and numbers to look good for the state in order to keep their contract.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to MO.
