    Good and Bad

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGrowing company with potential opportunity for growth, depending on your location can work with some really great people.

    ConsDisconnect between corporate leadership and local health plan management. Compensation is not equitable. Company reported banner year and then shortchanged employees on raises. Unacceptable.

    Advice to Senior Managementtake care of your employees. Don't claim a banner year and then offer 1% raises. That is unacceptable. Make your employees your first priority, as they are the one's who deliver the product. If you short change your employees, you will have high turnover, unhappy employees and that will impact your product.

    All levels of Staff are rediculously overpaid for the work that is done.

    Manager (Former Employee) Louisville, KY

    ProsGreat paying job with opportunities to work from home.

    ConsDifficult to move up, poor management training, Senior leaders live in a glass house and provide great lip service. This company continually will reduce workforce to meet end of year budgets also allowing them to eliminate positions of people that don't fit into a yes sir mold.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Director

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsStrong leadership, pay for performance, resources. At WellCare your efforts are noticed when you deliver good results. You will be managed out for poor results. Good data and analytics.

    ConsTampa can ignore the markets more times than the markets see as reasonable. It could take weeks to get the simplest answers from home office.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFix the customer service issues. Those have existed for years and they contribute to STAR ratings. Be more responsive to the markets. You are there to help them.
