    I worked at WellPoint full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Job advancement and a variety of opportunities are available to those who are willing to work diligently. The salaries are competitive and the benefits are amazing.

    Cons

    It can be difficult to find a good work/life balance. Salaries are based on location, so this can be a con for those who live in lower socio-economic areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the lines of communication open, support those below you, and be very clear about the goals and objectives for EACH person.

    Pros

    Salary and Bonus, potential to work from home.

    Cons

    Management is dysfunctional. Environment is what's known in the IT industry as a "sweat shop"..churn'em and burn' em. You're a"resource" to be" loaded up" with work(whether you've been trained or not) not a human.
    Our department constantly operates in crisis mode. No on-boarding process to properly train new employees. No documented processes. Old timers who would rather do it themselves than train someone.(job security...but I don't want your job). Not sure how the managers got their positions with no experience in the field or technology that's being used, plus they can't even manage people properly?
    One of the worst places I've ever worked.
    You know a job is bad when you first start and they ask you every day.."so you decided to come back" .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of ineffective managers.

    Former Employee - Customer Care Representative in Houston, TX

    I worked at WellPoint full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The company's benefits are the only justifiable incentive for seeking employment there. Sadly, the cons are more evident than the pros.

    Cons

    This company's call center is the most unprofessional establishment I have ever set foot in. The managers are loud, obnoxious and exceedingly uneducated. Upper level management supports lower level management in this type of behavior because as long as they are behaving like fools, they are not at risk of taking their jobs. The culture of the company is similar to that of an inner city project apartment. If you have any desire to interact with intelligent and cultured individuals while at work, look elsewhere. However, if you would like a job where you are treated like a minimal intelligence, lower-level subordinate in an adult day care setting, this company is for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should encourage your subordinates to behave in a way that is not detrimental to the overall image of the company. Additionally, you should refrain from treating your employees is such a disrespectful and dismissive manner.
