Overall a good company to work for but has some major cons

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

Pros

Flexible work arrangements (work remotely, etc.)
Talented work force
Good compensation

Cons

*Processes / procedures are extremely inefficient (and have been for quite some time).
*Too many reorgs (at least once or twice a year). Just when things start to stabilize, everything is uprooted again for another reorg (and RIFs).
*Development of talent used to be a priority but no longer is.
*Health benefits aren't as good as you would expect from a company whose business is health insurance.
*Too many useless meetings.
*Relatively simple things are made complicated (may be side effect of being a very large company)
*Limited advancement opportunities for remote employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Correct above cons, but especially the first one. Associates have been saying for YEARS on the associate survey that processes are inefficient, but nothing has been done to improve them.

    Pros

    I'm finding it interesting there are so many good reviews here.
    I work from home but did this at the previous place I work, so its not a big deal for me.

    Cons

    Incompetent managers. Mine doesn't act like a grown up. I've had 5 managers in less than a yr.
    No raise for several yrs.
    Outdated computer systems that fail frequently

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In a better economy I would've been long ago. This company treats people with disdain and they don't want your advice. There is no way to review your manager which is wrong. Yet they can say whatever they want about you. Not good.....
