    Pros

    Supportive management and coworkers. Very understanding with situations in your personal life, and flexible with work schedule.

    Cons

    Disorganization with policies and procedures. Same question different answer depending upon whom you ask.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice to have a policy and procedure booklet to review. This would give everyone the same answer, and same area of reference.

    I worked at Amerigroup full-time

    Pros

    Overall compensation plan was better than average. Company is at the forefront of work-at-home for many positions. Committed and caring front-line managers

    Cons

    A political cauldron. The minions in the Virginia Beach headquarters control everything. A great deal of secrecy even within the same team. Leaders undermine directors by encouraging and manipulating "back-channel" comments in "skip-level" meetings. Accomplished liars. The ballyhooed integration of WellPoint into Amerigroup is crashing and burning because senior leaders have no ability to control the Incompetent WellPoint site leaders. Reduction in force and reorganization resulted in promotion of cronies.

    Advice to Management

    If you can manage to pull off the Cigna merger, take your golden parachutes and let them run the business because you have clearly failed. Just another example of the excess profits in healthcare masking a multitude of incompetence.

    Pros

    Great CEO. The CEO is approachable and relatable. Great Benefits.

    Overall management. Friends hired with very little skill in managing staff. Division between some departments. Sorority sisters and best friends are hired for opportunities they are not skilled for. Lots of conflict of interest practices.

    Be good listeners and hold yourself accountable.

    Pros

    Work from home was good.

    Cons

    Could have been a great job. Leadership poor... too much bullying, and politics. Only way to advance is to leave. No value for hard working employees. Salaries lower than similar positions at other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Replace leadership and listen to employees

    Pros

    Generally don't have to work after 11pm most nights.

    Cons

    Management, leadership, pay, workload, too many to name. This place is HORRIBLE. Stay away as much as you can. Management throws people under the bus and no decent employee will stay here by choice. Ridiculous hours, and there is NO hesitation to fire you no matter how good your work is if your manager doesn't like you. They will not hesitate to verbally abuse you. Expect to be treated like crap and micromanaged to hell. AVOID like the plague.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to listen to your employees, get off your high horse and don't be so quick to toss someone out. Verbally abusing someone is NOT ok.
