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

    Pros

    There are some very smart people that work here, however for the most part they are not in management. If the top listened more to the ranks there would not be so many issues.

    Cons

    HUGE disconnect between management and employees. I worked in the Baton Rouge branch and the corruption that took place at that office was something out of a movie. It was a work environment that if you presented good ideas or identified problems, you became the enemy and ended up with write ups or threatened. The work volume was unmanagable, however if you could not manage it and expressed concern you were railroaded. There is no place for an employee to go to with a problem. Going to your supervisor, VP, HR will get you targeted/fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being dishonest. An honorable person would see their mistakes and make it right.

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

    Pros

    There were some very smart, kind individuals who worked there.

    Cons

    It was the most unorganized, chaotic corporate environment I have ever worked in. Management was awful, almost abusive at times. Leadership by fear was common.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put some basic framework in place. Spend some money on technology to bring the internal systems together to become more of a technically dynamic environment. Offer management training on how to communicate to employees effectively and not by bullying.
