    I have been working at WellCare full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Opportunity to learn how not to run a public sector managed care company

    Cons

    Individual departments work as separate silos and are only concerned about their individual performance. This results in redundancy and the left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing. No work/life balance, the culture is to get things done without concern for quality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire a CEO and senior management with a diverse public sector health care background

    I have been working at WellCare full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Competitive Salary. That is it.

    Cons

    No real direction with management.
    Top heavy.
     Lay offs happen every year.
    Fraud in reporting

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership in local market is not effective. Looks for outsiders with new ideas for Sr. Director and COO positions. Listen to the all associate surveys, they are the truth.

  3.  

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

    Pros

    Great paying job with opportunities to work from home.

    Cons

    Difficult 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.

    I have been working at WellCare

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Disconnect 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 ManagementAdvice

    take 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.
