Former Employee - Health Coach in Dallas, TX
Former Employee - Health Coach in Dallas, TX

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

Pros

Opportunity to learn about health coaching & working with professionals in your field of expertise.

Cons

Long hours with minimal breaks. Micromanaged with by unqualified managers & management. No opportunity for growth & development of profession. Poor communication resulting in Important pieces of information not being shared with the team to tightly control the actions of the team by its leader and result in a situation that is the polar opposite of teamwork. Within that time I was employed a new person came in as my counter part with less education than I and got promoted 3 times based on favoritism, young, friends with management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire real managers, train mangers to manage & build a team rather than to micro manage & destroy a team & individual's self worth.

    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.
