    I have been working at Anthem full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The benefits structure is great. Medical insurance is awesome, great stock purchasing and 401k. As others have said, our CEO is not big on telecommuting and the we have been informed that evaluations to make Many of the WAH staff come into the office is underway. Most managers at Anthem are very forward looking, valued feedback and is very encouraging. My current boss, is not. She is very traditional, a micromanager and...

    Cons

    Anthem has never really treated their WAH associates with the respect they deserve. You pay for your own internet access, most managers are ok, but Anthem really needs to demand conformity and collaboration from all its managers. While the health insurance is pretty go (HMO is available to almost half of its plans) it’s dental and its vision coverage leaves Much to be desired.. I often pay at least $110 every two years...

    Advice to Management

    Train managers to be more collaborative and have a standard of conducts for all managers and stick by it.. also ditch the plan to make people come in to the office.. you will lose talent this way

    I have been working at Anthem full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The paycheck is deposited on time and in full. That's the only pro of working at Anthem.

    Cons

    Where to begin? The company hired many staff in the last few years under the assumption, job description, and HR interview confirmation that it was a telecommute role (and why many accepted the job in the first place), and then performed a pretty nasty bait and switch as many have indicated here in their reviews where the policy is now to rescind the work from home option and force employees into offices at "core locations"...

    Advice to Management

    None. The clique of passive aggressive leaders who think they know better than everyone else about everything would never listen to constructive criticism. The epitome of malignant narcissism. Your opinions or feedback or suggestions are absolutely worthless. They bulldoze right over them.

    Pros

    Anthem pays well, has a solid benefit package and treats people well day to day

    Cons

    RIFs are frequent and unpredictable. The are now frequent enough that there is no acknowledgement of them - you simply get an email bounce back and that tells you someone is gone. .

    Advice to Management

    There is a fear of making mistakes which leads to taking no chances. People have a lot of anxiety which reduces productivity.

    I have been working at Anthem full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The people I work with are highly engaged and want to make a difference

    Cons

    The largest issue is after 15 years being a Work at Home associate and almost 18 years with the company in total I am now being told I have to drive into an office everyday that is 55 mins from my house one way and I would be among no one I actually work with or support on a daily basis.

    Advice to Management

    You really need to reconsider your thinking around WAH especially those who have been doing this for a very long time. It is not as easy as it seems to just change and start driving into an office every day let along the small town mentality of our leadership who have not considered the extra cost to most in doing this such as parking, or public transportation, gas, car maintenance, tolls and new clothing. YOU WILL...
