I have been working at Centene full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Great campus and amenities; always new business; never a dull moment!

Cons

Hard to advance past Manager level - I wish there were more opportunities to climb the ladder. Some departments, not all, have a real log jam at the top; you basically have to wait for someone to flame out or hang tough until the inevitable reorganization.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give job & industry experience more weight rather than ironclad insistence on higher education.

    Pros

    They have an awesome cafeteria.

    Cons

    Nothing is built to last. None of the other developers are writing unit tests, and the architecture is pretty brittle.

    As a developer you will be tasked with gathering specifications as the business analysts don't do their jobs.

    As a developer you will be tasked with going through a five layer process to certify that a feature is ready to deploy - the testing team does not really test, only the business will test, and they are impossible to work with.

    As a developer you will be tasked with supporting code you did not write (you will be on-call), and no one else on the team serves on-call (business analysts, testers, managers).

    As a developer you will work nights and weekends in addition to regular hours, and you will not be the one promoted - Centene only promotes business analysts and managers.
