    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.

    Pros

    Wellpoint is a good company to work for with excellent benefits. There is room for advancement, and they are education focused. They offer $5000 a yr for tuition. They offer quarterly bonuses and the amount can vary, but it's free money.

    Cons

    Not family oriented, hard to get time off, and there is lots of favortism.

    Advice to Management

    Know the value of the employees. Learn your job and stop making employees do the work you are paid for. It would not hurt to show some apprecitation and recognition.
