Generally great company with competitive pay & benefits; however, varies significantly by department.

I worked at WellPoint full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Stable company overall; competitive benefits; executive management has programs to identify "High Potential" associates and presents those identified with challenges and opportunities to succeed. Compared to other companies, there seems to be less politicking by management. Less friction between departments than at some competitors.

Cons

Certain decisions are made at Executive level do not seem to consider the impact to lower levels. I was never personally impacted by this but know of others who were. This probably comes with any big corporation, though. All my managers were fair-good except one; who was ultimately removed from a management role.

    Pros

    Okay benefits, well organized, great corporate vision, engaged employees, flexible schedule, overall a descent company to work for.

    Cons

    Executives and their politics can ruin moral. Sides get drawn and everything goes a little lord of the flies. Too melodramatic to be professional.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember that the company is a whole, fragments are weak.
