    I worked at WellPoint full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Generous Pay and good benefit.

    Cons

    Frequent change of management and re-organization. Frequent lay-offs. Has to be located in major offices such as Indianapolis, Cincinati, St Louis, and Los Angeles to have a good chance for career growth. This is a place where you really need to try hard to know someone or the management for career growth. There are a lot of example of mediocre folks in high positions...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on people who can do the job, pull the boat forward, get the revenue as well as keeping the cost reasonable. Get rid of folks who just do the show and tell a few lies.
