    Pros

    The benefits are awesome, lots of PTO, and it is the most diverse company I have ever worked for.

    Cons

    Since it is an insurance company, changes to company policy are happening all the time to keep up with legislative changes. This can be a bit overwhelming at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with subordinates regulary to let them know "what's in it for me".

    I have been working at WellPoint full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Work-life balance. Benefits, work from home, use clinical and functional skills about how Rx get processed to help real people troubleshoot issues. Use everything I know and encouraged to keep learning. Always looking to improve.

    Cons

    Huge company, people's experience relies a lot on their direct manager and that management branch. It also relies on their understanding of how what they do helps people, many people do not understand this. This is not unusual. Always looking to improve, upper management changes can really swing direction at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep in mind it is great customer service that inspires loyalty and great inter team work and understanding of healthcare as a whole that fuels great customer service. Our members are our families... Immediate and extended.

    I worked at WellPoint full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The salary was very good for my geographic area. We had flexible work schedules and were able to work from home. The benefits were good. This was a great place to work and the people were wonderful.

    Cons

    The company was bought by another , causing the closure of this office. Outsourcing of certain services was done several years before we merged and this caused layoffs.
