Pros

Many interesting projects due to the size of the organization
Good compensation

Cons

A lot of paper pushing
Slow integration of newly acquired businesses
A lot of mediocre and substandard talent stays on for years dragging everyone's productivity down

Advice to Management

After my employer was acquired by WellPoint, the acquired company has been in a strategic limbo for three years. As everyone focused on a technical integration, customers were neglected, market research was abandoned, and innovation was forsaken. As a result, at the end of the three year integration, WellPoint received not a cutting edge technology but a three year old product as the rest of the market players continued innovating. The opportunity to make customers' experience engaging and personalized using newly acquired assets was completely squandered as most employees of the newly acquired company who had any ambition decided to move on to more interesting projects instead of suffering from neglect for another year.

    Pros

    The company offers great pay, benefits, and has a great diversity program. They helped pay for my MBA and I have progressed in the company as a result.

    Cons

    It has become very large and the politics have grown with it. Strategy planning seems to start in June but is not solidified until near the end of Q1 of the following year. It would be helpful to hit the ground running at the beginning of the year and better yet to have a rolling plan.

    Advice to Management

    Decrease process as it impedes progress

    Pros

    Consistent employment. Never any news of "downsizing".

    Cons

    Felt Underpaid for the amount of work. Worked an average of 5-10 hrs of overtime a week without compensation. Got more respect from the clients and general population than from company managment. Was told consisitently "It is what it is". High turnaround times (dictated by contract) increases stress level of the job. Lost 6 nurses in a month. There were only 12 on staff.

    Advice to Management

    Should be better compensation for the "professional" role desired by the corporation. Nurses continually have the highest "trustworthy" ratings on a consistent basis according to Press-Gainey. Profit before people was uttered many times in the office. You should review how much time and money are required for new hire re-training; it is more cost effective to keep you employees content. My opinion of overworked and underpaid was shared by many coworkers. Management was treated well.
