    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.
