    I worked at WellPoint full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I am sorry but I cannot think of any Pros.

    Cons

    You will be micromanaged, raises and promotions are not based on your performance but on whom you are friends with. If you are a "favorite" you can get away with anything.
    This is a health insurance company, but with the insurance choices they give you for yourself, you will not be able to afford to use your insurance....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    sending out surveys on if your managers are acting ethically makes absolutely no difference if you never act on the results

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at WellPoint full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Telecommuting options provide good work/life balance, positive initiatives for process improvement, professional development opportunitites via virtual learning modules, tuition reimbursement up to $5000 per year (no restrictions on area of study)

    Cons

    Risk of lay off due to major outsourcing and restructing. Some operations areas (from Director level - down) are overly competitive which causes backbiting and a negative/unproductive work environment- workplace bullying. Very active rumor mill that allows certain employees to manipulate and impact important business decisions based on subjective opinions. Although this is not the case in every area, it is prevalent enough to be mindful of its existence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide some stability for onshore staff, allow time for change to yield results before making additional changes.
