    I have been working at Wellmark full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Culture and inclusion is something that is talked about a lot, but it's something you can truly feel as well!

    Coming from a company that didn't have such a robust leader-oriented structure, it was a little weird at first but I've found it to help add a lot of structure, stability and focus to my role. I now like having a leader to be a sounding board for my work, stand up for me or escalate things when I need help to get something done.

    Cons

    With such a large company, sometimes decisions take a long time to be made - however, the checks and balances that are in place are there for a reason and really are there in the long run to ensure quality and prevent any mistakes from being made.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Wellmark (Des Moines, IA) in August 2013.

    Interview

    I went through a recruiting firm for a contract role. Once the firm submitted be I was set up for an in person interview with the hiring manager of my department. Once that interview was completed it was a really long time before I knew I had the job and I actually started - I would say close to a month.
