    Pros

    What they’re really saying here is: “You should be grateful that you’re employed during this bad job market and therefore shouldn’t complain about any conditions of your employment.” Bosses who think and say this don’t know how to deal with problems or feedback constructively.

    Cons

    Managers do need to address problems told to them in confidence, but a skilled boss won’t focus on the anonymous report. Rather, he or she will concentrate on the problematic behavior

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My manager did not care my hours working. I was working 50- 60 hours a week. Some people working less but they are know how to talk to manager.
    Senior manager does not control low manger.

    Pros

    Good pay for IT and Finance. Lots of opportunity for advancement due to high turnover at management levels. Flexible schedule, decent benefits.

    Cons

    New senior management cares little about people. Work you to death and then lay you off. If your not Caucasian you don't stand a chance in IT, sadly this is supported by HR. You're not judged on performance or results, rather your charm, politicking and skin color. Very hostile cut throat work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the company already, what are you waiting for?

    Pros

    Decent pay and it's a job. However, that's all I can say. You have a pretty good opportunity for paid time off. Trust me, you'll want to use it as you will eventually hate the company.

    Cons

    This is an incredibly negative work environment. Many workers will talk the company up TO GET THE REFERRAL BONUS. They are constantly cutting costs and staff to make life miserable for employees. The company grows but they don't hire. They have nearly no employee incentives for good work. I have never heard anyone, besides management, say they enjoyed working for the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support your employees. The company is always built from the bottom up, and without that support there is no company. I've worked here for years and I don't feel appreciated at all. The HR department needs work. Employees feel as if nothing they do is good or appreciated.

    Pros

    There were diverse cultures represented there, and all age groups. That's what I liked the most. The office staff were professional and respectful of one another. Noise was kept at a minimum. There were always potlucks, birthday celebrations, baby shower celebrations, bake sales going on.

    Cons

    Getting security access to certain programs took a very long time which would hinder temporary postions where help was sent for only a short duration of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to Management would be this: Speeding up the process to getting security access would help your company get more of the "back-logs" of work caught up much quicker.

    Pros

    WellCare has embarked down a completely different leadership path, starting with the termination of most of the C levels. The company culture has shifted to one of extreme micro-management to more of a collaborative environment. There is still work to be done, but I feel like we are FINALLY going the right direction.

    Cons

    IT is still a mess, but the new CIO has a good long-term strategy to get us to where we need to be. Growing pains will remain for some time in this area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep cutting out the mediocrity in management and promote from within.

    Pros

    Great location. Great salary. Non-management peers are awesome.

    Cons

    "July 25, 2014 WELLCARE SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Shareholder Rights Law Firm Johnson & Weaver, LLP Announces Investigation of WellCare Health Plans, Inc." This is a poorly run company. But can a company be sued for incompetent management? High salaried no-nothings, friends hiring friends? It had to catch up at some point. But stupidity and poor management conducted under ignorance is not negligence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you lower your net income per share by half after the second quarter there really is nothing to say.
