    Pros

    Good Pay, Benefits, Campus Perks

    Cons

    You can either end up working with a really good department, or its antithesis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you hire someone new, keep in mind that this person is coming in as someone tangential to a pre-established work circle. Instead of griping about an employee's perceived inability to integrate, try inviting them to lunch.

    Pros

    In my current dept...the flexibility

    Cons

    No promotions within team and department. Management only looks out for themselves, yet the little people do alllll the work!!! No appreciations, raises are low....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within and appreciate your employees if you don't like the turnover percentage being 12%

    I loved working for this company and felt it invested in their hard working Associates. New leadership changed that.

    I have been working at WellCare full-time

    Pros

    Nice campus, onsite cafeteria, decent compensation when bonus is paid out

    Cons

    No longer invests in their employees, HR sweeps Associate complaints under the rug without proper investigation, and issues an Associate Survey, but does not address the findings which are the same or getting worse year over year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your Associates. Complaints have been raised and are not being taken seriously and knowledge capital is walking out the door and being replaced with the Telco industry.

    Pros

    A lot of change is happening so it is very interesting and exciting to see. If you can get into the right position, there is a ton of potential to shine and grow.

    Cons

    A lot of change is happening, so job security is not the best at the moment.

    I have been working at WellCare full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I've been with WellCare several years and have seen MANY changes - some good and some not-so-good. In the last 12 months, we've had a complete turnover in exec leadership - for the better, in my opinion. We now have clear, measurable and manageable expectations, plus a first-time-ever leadership development program which holds all people-managers to a high degree of accountability for themselves and their teams. PTO, compensation and benefits are all satisfactory, plus the current leadership really means it when they say that it's important to have a healthy work-life balance (used to be just lip service).

    But most of all - the people who receive their healthcare coverage from WellCare are the best reason of all to work here. Whether you're a claims analyst or a case manager or a customer service rep, you know you are doing something to help someone who needs you to do your job and do it well.

    Cons

    Tight budget = very little wiggle room; historical inconsistency of expectations depending on which department you're in; still fighting some of the "but that's the way we've always done it" mentality. Working our way into the 21st century from the tech perspective, and employee training still has a long way to go but it's improving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work on culture change, transparency and top-down accountability.

    I worked at WellCare full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    nice campus, salary OK (but not worth it)

    Cons

    Just about everything. This is the shadiest company I have ever worked for, and I've been around. They spend countless manhours doing lip service to compliance, when the leadership of the company are some of the worst offenders in the industry. They consistently say, "We're changing, it's different now, new leadership." And it never makes one bit of difference. Rotten to the core. And though they go on about how important their members are to them, that is another big lie--it's the almighty dollar. And not for you, me or your colleagues, but for their shareholders and top executives. If you want to hate yourself every day, by all means go ahead and work here. If you want to wake up and look at yourself in the mirror and be OK with your job, run, run, run far away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice, they don't listen, they do exactly what's best for them and have no interest in the people who actually do the work in the company.
