I have been working at Centene full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Good health benefits if you participate in Healthy Pathway program Cafe is nice plus as an employee you get a discounted price as an employee.

Cons

I have been here less than 5 months and I am ready to leave. Many of my issues are the same ones others have already posted. Senior management acts as if you should be happy you have a job.

    I worked at Centene full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good Health benefits. On site cafe. Worked with some great people.

    Cons

    Leadership will praise your hard work and long hours but less than a minute later will tell you that you should be happy you have a job in this economy. Too many managers and not enough staff to actually do the work which leads to a very stressful work environment trying to turn a deliverable around in a short period of time.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to begin thinking of your IT staff as an valuable asset and not as a expendible resource. Comments from IT leadership describing why IT professionals chose IT as a career like "this is the life we chose" only highlights your distain for your employees. I think you would be hard pressed to find anybody in IT who chose it as a career so they could work long hours including weekends and major holidays.

    I worked at Centene full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Corporate building had nice cafe. Competitive pay.

    Cons

    The job will affect your family life with the excessive hours and stress. Very high turnover which always translates into more work for the employees who are still there.

    Advice to Management

    None. It doesn't matter to me anymore.
