    I worked at WellPoint full-time (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 worked at WellPoint full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Mon-Fri, stable income, good money

    Cons

    That is so far the worst non organization I have ever worked for. Not only managers do not care about their employees but they also discriminate and mistreat people. All these people think that they can treat new comers like dirt. I have worked there for a few years and I have seen hundreds of people being hired and asked to leave due to lack of work. What work??? Not only current employees are being nasty to customers, inappropriate to each other but also they hire new people and fire them right after. I have seen cases of all kinds of discrimination. One thing I have never seen it is for a new person to work there more than 3 months. When being hired by wellPoint, please do yourself a favor and look for another job. They hire and get rid of people right after they don't need help. They won't even memorize your name because soon enough they will hire somebody else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire professionals, train professionals, be professionals. You teach your managers to mistreat and discriminate. Because of rotten companies like yours customer service in our country is failing.
