    Pros

    Strong 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.

    Cons

    Tampa 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 ManagementAdvice

    Fix 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.

    Great place for professional development. I was a novice of the healthcare industry but have learned a lot and have grown personally since working with WellCare. I have been with the company for 18months.

    Cons

    Communication can be off at time, "too many chiefs not enough indians." We aren't percieved as industry competitors.

    I have been working at WellCare full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    A typical day at work was riding or walking around talking to parents informing them on medical plans and benefits while assisting them on selecting they're plans. I learned how to consistently work to achieve and maintain a goal on daily basis not just long periods of time. I truly enjoyed my coworkers that I interacted with and my manager. The hardest part of the job was bad weather because the majority of marketing was done outside. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting different people, freedom and compensation.

    Cons

    This job has tough job security. They lay a lot of people off randomly with no notice.

    I have been working at WellCare full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Since most employees are dissatisfied this may be a N/A answere.

    Cons

    Incompetent managment; frequent layoffs; unprofessional leadership; low raises even with excessive work load; inadequate/ no training; work life noy balance; inconsistant leadership; management does not hold basic management skills. Many managers do not hold basic people skills. They will give you a decent salary to get you on board. After that, they will only give you a 2% raise even though they say they will give you more. This is an extreemly disorganized company. Managment meetings are fluff with empty promises to employees. We calll it working for hellcare.
