Approves of CEO


The people, the resources, and the culture. The people in my org are awesome, and we all work to push the company's security in the right direction. Most everyone is incredibly technical, even


Centene isn't a _super_ well-known company, and so there isn't exactly a ton of talent flocking to join up. While we have financial resources for the tools we need, we don't have the people to man

Advice to Management

Not much to say here, I honestly think management is really good in general here. Depending on the manager, can tend to be a bit micro-manage-y, but overall isn't a huge issue.

    Average Interview

    I applied online. I interviewed at Centene (United States)


    Completed a total of 7 interviews for a non-managerial position. Their hiring process seems very fragmented, from both an HR and hiring manager perspective. The interview process was not made clear from the onset and throughout the interviews. The interviewers were not even able to give clear answers to who the role would report to. Received an offer but declined, for several reasons: low salary offer despite HR knowing my salary requirements from the get-go, un-inspiring role that was against my morals (basically review data to help the company justify raising Medicare rates for their members), and bad impression of corporate culture based on interview process.

    Describe a time you were met with resistance and how you handled it.
