Current Employee - Senior Applications Developer in Clayton, MO

I have been working at Centene full-time for less than a year

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.

    One year after my start date and I would have chosen to come to Centene all over again.

    I have been working at Centene

    Pros

    The pay is decent and comparable to area hospitals

    Cons

    horrible training. Constantly being pulled off of regular work to put out fires. Managers are all buddies that have left Health Net and brought a top-down cliqueish culture with them. I have a masters degree and they asked me to answer phones....no thanks
