I have been working at Wellmark

Pros

The employees are friendly and good work life balance exists. There is an awesome free fitness center. Benefits are OK and the company strives to help employees live healthy.

Cons

Many employees are unwilling to take any chances and look beyond the mundane. This might be because there is seldom any significant reward for doing so. Laying low and standing under the radar is the norm.

Salaries are low and Human Resources allows little leeway for managers to reward exceptional performance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Delegate authority. You really do get what you pay for in an employee.

    I worked at Wellmark

    Pros

    There is very little expected of the marketing staff regarding growth on a new business basis. If you are looking for a place to hide, Wellmark is a solid option.

    Cons

    The compensation formula for new business in a marketing capacity is very low within the industry. Senior management hides behind doors and has no concept of the clients needs and/or concerns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You all need to get out of Des Moines more often and get a real feel for your clients.
