I have been working at Amerigroup full-time for more than a year

Pros

A desk behind the glass door if you're willing to participate in bullying and micromanaging the staff.
Occasional working from home as a manager.
A chance to get some relief from the hostile work environment by participating in community outreach events in which the plan members are greatly appreciative.
Extra bonus $$$ if you're in the "clique"

Cons

Work at home employees and first line managers you are being watched closely by big brother/big sister. Their paying your cellphone bill for a reason.
Senior leadership has historically prevented employees from transferring to other departments in addition to outside organizations. It's called blacklisting.
Do not take any extended time off, even if you're pregnant

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop spending time and resources on stalking employees. Instead help them to become more effective by providing the necessary resources so that they contribute to the success of the organization.

    I have been working at Amerigroup full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Mission to help Medicaid patients; dedicated, committed hard working co-workers

    Cons

    Unbelievably bad upper leadership - Provider Relations, Operations, Quality, COO . I'm amazed that the TN health plan manages to make a profit. The provider community detests this company, the customer service is horrible, there is no accountability and staff are looking for jobs to get out of this hostile work environment created by several overpaid, usually absent vice presidents. It isn't how much you know, how hard you work; it is how good you are at playing the game and tattling. Worst company I've worked for in regard to HR won't do anything about the continuing hostile work environment. Several VPs manage by intimidation. It could be a great company but unless Wellpoint takes a hard look and cleans house, it will continue to decline.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a COO who actually understands business principles instead of an affirmative action LPN who is cronies with TennCare employees. Hold your double standard, back stabbing VPs accountable for the bottom line and stop allowing them to blame the good managers they drive out for all the mistakes and messes that continue. Recognize the hard work your worker bees do and stop listening the bitchy little mean girls you call your Vice Presidents because they are all out of touch and too busy creating silos with their infighting.

    I worked at Amerigroup as a contractor

    Pros

    Hired contract nurses with common sense.

    Cons

    Extremely unorganized and very stressful. Managers micro-manage and are very wishy-washy. No "teamwork".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Discontinue micro-managing employees. Brush up on your leadership and management skills.
