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 Management

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

    Largest Health plan so there is so much to do and learn. I'll encourgae young people to choose this company if they would like to setup their career in high pace and rewarding company.

    Cons

    I found not many issues. However, bringing many department to work togather is a challenge here. In all it can be overcome if you have good people skills.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing the good work. Hire more new garduate to allow them to learn with Wellpoint experienced team.
