    Pros

    Big, yet not too big

    Cons

    Too many chiefs who are clueless and too many overpriced contractors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get mental help now although the poor benefits probably prevent getting the help really required. If you have never worked at WellPoint, then you do not matter.

    Florida Blue as a whole is not a bad place to work. Their QA part of IT is a little misdirected.

    Former Employee - Senior QA in Jacksonville, FL

    Pros

    The total cash compensation in IT is competive. The campus is beautiful.

    Cons

    The new leadership over QA has determined that once a resource (FTE or contract) has left (regardless of reason), that resouce is not longer eligible to return (for any reason). They also dont promote alternative work arrangements although Pat Geraty promotes it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont let good QA resources leave because they are moving out of the general area. Working remotely should be allowed for the QA / IT people.
