I have been working at WellPoint (more than 3 years)

Pros

The people in my department are wonderful and willing to go the extra mile because they are appreciated by middle management

Cons

Upper management does not listen to concerns regarding understaffing. Just like any other big corporation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to the people that actually perform the work necessary to the success of the company.

    I have been working at WellPoint

    Pros

    Great people, generally good management, salary OK, decent benefits and good opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    Culture changes, industry is in flux, very stressful work environment, unstable organizational changes. The healthcare industry is experiencing challenging times, so it will take grit and perseverance to successfully navigate through the coming changes over the next several years. WellPoint is positioning itself for those challenges and it is a stressful environment for its employees. Administrative efficiency and cost reductions have taken a toll on its employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I work with with some excellent, talented individuals; unfortunately, some have or are thinking about leaving the Company due to burn-out. I truly hope that senior management is monitoring employee retention.

    I worked at WellPoint full-time (more than 3 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
