    Better than average pay. Great co-workers (who, unfortunately are fleeing fast).

    Good pay, poor leadership

    Aug 19, 2021 - Director 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Good pay and there are pockets of really great people, some of which have been there a very long time. Although, the reason they have stayed in less to do with loyalty but inability to make a late stage career shift.

    Cons

    The company believes it is innovative, but they are really just trying to follow the UHC and Optum playbook. The culture declined significantly over the years after people were clearly hired by who they knew instead of what they could do. It is culture of fiefdoms and blindness.

    Pros

    Purpose driven organization that knows what they want to achieve and the reasons for their goals. Great benefits, PTO policy, tools for growth and development, easy to use employee portal.

    Cons

    Change comes at a cost. Multi year reorganizations which changes leadership and the direction of any given department. This creates confusion and conflict. Adjustments by way of automation can impact the need for staff in certain positions. Multiple RIF's per year.

    Unrealistic strategy that isn’t tied to executable planning

    Dec 13, 2020 - Director in Virginia Beach, VA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Remote work policies, very thorough ethics and compliance investigations teams when needed, starting to stand up better leadership development programs, some very dedicated associates.

    Cons

    Some of the biggest failures at the executive level you can imagine. Such as: Committing to completely unrealistic deadlines without even consulting the team doing the work on the level of effort required, then the VPs who made the commitment strongarming people into 80+ hour weeks when the deadlines are inevitably at risk. Because it’s not their poor planning, it’s poor workers... A total failure to implement SAFe agile correctly for a massive project, resulting in late delivery and massive cost overrun. There are a few types at the Director/Staff VP level. You have the ones that love to talk about strategy and make promises but can’t seem to execute anything. Then the ones who are scrambling around trying to do whatever the “strategy” people decide is a priority this week. Finally, you have the people who have either burned out or given up and are just trying to stay under the radar or hang on until the next reorg. I know there are pockets of good areas at Anthem, but there’s so much toxicity at the executive level, and it either never gets addressed or it takes months to deal with through HR. Everyone brings their baggage to work at this place.
