    I worked at WellCare

    Pros

    good benefits for health and dental

    Cons

    very non-consistant information. Management is never available and does not even know what they are doing to help if you do need it. management gets away with whatever they want such as treating each employee differently and their favorites get what ever they want.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    put someone in management that knows what they are doing and ensure they treat each employee the same.

    I worked at WellCare

    Pros

    The people I was able to work with were second to none. Compensation was very fair and my particular management vertical was outstanding.

    Cons

    Lack of promotions (good ole boy network), poor communication between teams, constant changing values and moving targets in IT.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'm not sure management in general has an IT how bad things in IT are. The IT management team has not done anything but tear down a process that while not perfect was working.

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

    Pros

    Money and benefits are very good. Lots of extras for discounts on various products via the purchasing power plans they have which can really save you money.

    Cons

    Absolutely zero communication between departments. Not one person understands the business as a whole. The companies overall approach to getting anything done is to go through multiple layers of "corporate red tape". Pertinant information is not distributed to all that need to know, but is freely given to many who don't.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire a team which can create a full corporate communication strategy and who will also be given the authority to implement the plan.

    We are also losing very qualified, highly intelligent associates and managers who should not be waking out the doors due to the lack of currently open positions. The historical knowledge within these individuals should be highly sought after, but yet we simply watch them walk out the door.

    Pros

    the people, the flexibility and the networking, a small company allows you to gain the training and education to grow in the field

    a lot of work politics and constant micro managing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would prefer a team engagement program since the turn around time is constant within employees

    I have been working at WellCare

    Pros

    Salary is good, benefits are better than most.

    Cons

    Some very nasty managers. Hiring a lot of foreigners who get the best jobs, promotions, and growth opportunities. Outsourcing a lot of IT jobs as well as having to train foreign IT workers to do an employees job. Little opportunity for growth, not true to promise of hiring within, unwilling to cross train and hire from within, very unstable, constant change, little appreciation for workers, no career development. I lost almost 4 years doing menial tasks while Indians get the good jobs, yet I am more than qualified with education and experience.
