    Former Employee - Program Manager in Mason, OH

    I worked at WellPoint full-time (more than 10 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Take 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 The "human element" of management has died a slow and quiet death over past few years, and has been replaced by management automatons who blindly operate at full bureaucratic efficiency--the WellPoint Borg at its best!
