    I worked at WellPoint full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working at this company I was able to grow a lot as a professional. I originally worked for Amerigroup, who was acquired by WellPoint. Throughout the entire transition I felt secure and well-informed. Excellent benefits, flexibility, and great work/life balance.

    Cons

    Hard to move within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. Employees feel safe and can trust you.

    Pros

    Constantly working. Room for growth.

    Pros

    Vast opportunity however the responsibility falls on the associate to drive their career path-tools such as training, education reimbursement, co-sharing are just a few named opportunities for associates to take advantage of , flexible work environment, such as virtual work@home, flexible schedules, leadership, benefits, autonomy of position, work-life balance

    Cons

    With large corporations comes the challenges of consistent communication. However, it is great to see organization such as WellPoint recognizes that and continues to improve the process.

    Pros

    First day was today 11/10 pretty awesome company applied to the company early October received email for testing two days later received invitation for interview interviewed on the 27th of October and received offer and offer letter on 10/30. Went through background check with hire right which is a very unorganized company have check stubs or w2s on hand just in case and high school transcript or diploma. Other than that I'm enjoying the company already pretty good starting salary for Houston CSR I rep great benefits friendly environment and atmosphere and structured environment. management seems ok so far.

    Cons

    Good starting salary great benefits friendly environment nice people easy hiring and interview process.great training and trainer I really have a good feeling about my future with wellpoint
