    Former Employee - Case Manager, RN in Virginia Beach, VA
    Former Employee - Case Manager, RN in Virginia Beach, VA

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

    Pros

    Great learning opportunities through Amerigroup University; short commute time; great diversity as seen in the large number of minorities and women who are in leadership positions; staggered scheduling.

    Cons

    Too many to list, but here are the major ones: No formal training for the department; Manager was vastly inexperienced and micromanaged everyone; VP was not approachable; Very clique oriented, if you aren't in the cool kids group you are out; managers pick and choose who they speak to; managers listening to phone calls and policing emails; employees are discouraged from interacting with others outside their team and at times within the team; no work from home opportunity unless the department is way behind; HR staff not available for conflict resolution between employees and managers; lack of leadership and ingenuity from managers; unprofessional dress attire by managers; IT systems do not complement one another; poorly written job aids and protocols.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Before embarking on a new venture, please make sure you hire managers who have the education and experience to properly lead the department. When the employees have more experience than the manager and have consistently offered help and advice to the manager only to be blacklisted, you will dissuade qualified applicants from coming on board. Also, senior leadership should incorporate round table discussions with employees at the lower levels because it is obvious that the more qualified staff are at the bottom and great ideas to help solve the company's numerous issues.

    Current Employee - Project Manager I in Tampa, FL
    Current Employee - Project Manager I in Tampa, FL

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

    Pros

    If you work hard at this company, the opportunities are endless. Benefits are relatively awesome, and is a great career switch for nurses who are tired of spending nights weekends and holidays away from their families.

    Cons

    Pay is not as high as other local health insurance companies, but the culture and values, plus the opportunity for advancement make it a great place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, and provide reassurance as often as possible to the folks who are nervous about the WellPoint transition.
