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 ManagementAdvice

None. It doesn't matter to me anymore.

    I worked at Centene full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
