    I have been working at WellCare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Many many many avenues for advancement for LPNS doors and salary are endless for RN's... Work from home option... Cafeteria on site... Parking garage.... Awesome staff to work with

    Cons

    Management is disorganized but what cooperate office isn't... Especially in UM nurses aren't taught business so to have a bunch of nurses running it makes it a little difficult but totally worth it

    Advice to Management

    None

    I worked at WellCare full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You are paid what you are worth. The sky is the limit if you are a producer. Salary increases every month. Full time benefits are awesome. Matching 401-k plan.

    Cons

    The company basically gets all its revenue from state and federal government. Compliance is big issue. The company operates like it is "running scared". It investigates marketing reps for everything.Whole sales teams are terminated on the whim of outside business consultant. Not a lot of job security.

    Advice to Management

    You derive all your revenue from the state or federal government...Do not hire CEO and Legal Counsel who play the stock market. It smells.

    I have been working at WellCare full-time

    Pros

    I have been given the ability to grow rather quickly in my career at Wellcare

    Cons

    There is a huge gap in the support supervisors get from upper management and it is painfully obvious to all employees. Instead of seeming to agree with other departments decisions it would be nice if management supported their own supervisors and not let other departments bulldoze over your own associates.

    Advice to Management

    Give support to supervisors. It is hard and overwhelming to constantly needing to be going against other departments and not getting any support from management. Answer your emails quicker than once a week.

    I worked at WellCare full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Diverse workforce, decent pay, nice campus (Ren Campus), and good benefits. These are some of the better aspects to WellCare. Many of the associates are good, hard-working individuals who try their best to make the company better.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, there are a LOT of politics involved (though, I suppose this is common for any good-sized corporation). The HR department needs an overhaul in order to get around some of that. There are some good people there, but most won't give you the time of day if you don't meet their idea of an ideal employee (looks or otherwise). I've known people very well-suited for a job be told they got the job, only to have higher-up individuals in the HR department find some reason why they have to deny them the position they've been previously told they received.

    Advice to Management

    Start thinking about the company in terms of what it once was -- a small, start-up health plan -- with regard to the people who work there. Take care of the people worth taking care of. Manage the good ones up, and manage the bad ones out. This goes for all areas (as there are quite a few departments). Some people are happy to coast along. Reward the individuals who want to make the company bigger and better.

    Pros

    Great Co-workers. C level management cares.

    Cons

    IT dept has 0 direction and leadership. They cant keep good managers and you will only be promoted if you're a yes man.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your people and the feedback they give you. If all of your direct report are saying your doing it wrong maybe you are.
