Current Employee - Customer Care Representative I in Fond du Lac, WI

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

Pros

- Very Clean Office Environment
- No Sales (in my position)
- People are very positive and encouraging and will help you succeed
- Lots of room for advancement more than any other company I've seen

Cons

- Starting pay is a bit low even for someone with more experience
- The job is not for everyone
- Must work for company for 1 year before considered for advancement

Advice to ManagementAdvice

None at this time. I did give the CEO a thumbs down because I think all CEOs get paid way too much money and do less work than those on the front line. I feel this way about all CEOs. It's nothing personal.

    Do NOT Contract for them, and don't agree to work for them unless you're in management (and not even then!)

    Former Employee - Analyst in Richmond, VA

    I worked at WellPoint as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Fun environment, GREAT benefits if hired full time and GREAT company environment with many fun days and activities.

    Cons

    Operates like a sinking ship. Went through 3 CEOs in my short time there. TOO MANY shakeups at the upper level, will axe and rehire large amounts of workers seemingly random, now offshoring large parts of the lower levels of the company overseas (Antigua, Argentina, Manila, Panama, India, Uruguay and more) and its now depressing to walk in the once bustling buildings that are now ghost halls.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No communication. Not even to other management teams. Axed the whole IT dept stateside, moved it to Uruguay and noone was sure what was going on aside HR.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
