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

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsFlexible 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 Senior ManagementCorrect 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
