    Pros

    WellPoint was once offered a great work environment and offered a fairly competitive salary for my position prior to being bought by Anthem. Also, as a work at home employee for 11 of my 14 years offered me a good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Organizational structure is top heavy in refrence to compensating CEO, VPs, upper management, etc. Focus on the investors' bottom line (e.g. ROI). Goals and metrics are barely attainable.

    Advice to Management

    Investment in internal talent, morale and listening to front line employees would greatly benefit overall strength of the organization.

    Pros

    Overall good corporate benefit package.

    Cons

    Favoritism, biased management, inconsistent workload, constant shift in assignments. No OT despite workload. Mean spirited leadership, upper management appears to allow & sanction bullying, condescending attitude toward Case Managers. No real whistleblowing opportunity D/T buddy system with HR.

    Advice to Management

    Treat Your Partners ( case mgrs) the way you want to be treated. Upper Mgmt should hire an independent firm to survey employees about job satisfaction. Managers should have leadership trainings that incorporates interpersonal skills development.

    Pros

    Good pay, great benefits. Work is challenging enough that you wont get board. Great level of diversity, women in management, etc. Its a REALLY big company so even if you don't like the conditions where you are, you can apply for a job on a different department. Each department is different, because there is a different mix of people and the managers have different styles.

    Cons

    Re-organization happens a lot, not as stable as it used to be. Long hours, overtime may be mandatory but it is always with overtime pay.

    Advice to Management

    Don't overwork your employees.
