The best and brightest have hightailed it out (for good reason!)

Program Manager (Former Employee) Mason, OH

Pros* Support of work-at-home arrangements
* Access to online tools and information needed for job

Cons* Mediocre leadership with lackluster vision (middle to upper managment)-- complete lack of critical thinking or analysis skills
* Many jobs (medical management, IT, QI, etc) outsourced to multiple overseas vendors--many employees with constant fear of losing jobs
* Frequent (3-4 times/year) reorganizations
* Constant focus on efficiency over effectiveness (doing things "right" instead of doing the right things)
* Top-down culture with little to no collaborative input from front-line or middle management employees

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a close look at the gap between executive leadership and front-line associates--senior directors and VPs are very much out of touch with the actual experiences and needs of most associates. The "human element" of management has died a slow and quiet death over past few years, and has been replaced by management automatons who blindly operate at full bureaucratic efficiency--the WellPoint Borg at its best!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
