Pros

1) Employee benefits, compensation -- a company that tries hard to do the right thing by its employees
2) High growth company, lot's of opportunities for advancement (if you are willing to re-locate)
3) Innovative company in the health care space
4) Every employee shares in the rewards that come from solid financial performance

Cons

1) If your personal life is significantly more important than your work life or career, think carefully before you apply to work here.
2) If you can't deal with the chaos that unprecedented growth brings, think carefully before you apply to work here.

    Pros

    Opportunities to participate in many activities that would normally be out of scope in my role.

    Cons

    Ineffective recruiting and filling of needed roles, poor preparation and training for new staff, chaotic environment and exhausted employees. Negative reinforcement and threats from leaders rather than support and preparation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Considerable opportunities to support the growth over the long run are lost as creativity and effectiveness suffer under fear and exhaustion.

    Pros

    Centene is a growing company with a mission that you can believe in "Better health outcomes at a lower cost". They care about their members and the communities in which those members reside.

    Cons

    There is so much growth in the business, but they are not growing the teams to support this new business. We try to put processes in place to manage this chaos, but there is just too much work and not enough people or hours. As a result, there ends up being a lot of escalations and constantly changing priorities causing an environment of constant chaos and people being spread way too thin. It would be different if you could see an end in sight, but that light at the end of the tunnel is really a train heading straight towards us.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manage your human resource capacity appropriately and staff appropriately to support growth.
