    I have been working at Anthem full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Anthem allows internal and external volunteer opportunities, very competitive wages and additional benefits, many Work at home positions. They care about the health of their associates, but most of all, they care about our Patients and their families.

    Cons

    Nothing I can think of as a Con after over 3 years of employment

    I have been working at Anthem full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Work at home allows for excellent flexibility, productivity, and work/life balance.

    Cons

    Constant rumors/threats of ending work at home hang like dark cloud over employees.

    Advice to Management

    Ending work at home, especially for associates who do not have direct co-workers in their local office to talk to/work with, would greatly reduce flexibility, productivity, and upset thousands of employees. Would be a giant step backwards for the culture and the company where more and more companies are leaning towards work at home opportunities.

    I have been working at Anthem full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    the option of working from home

    Cons

    it can get awkward if they ask you to come in when you are a work at home employee, and don't like the outdated 9-5 model of working.

    Advice to Management

    Allow workers to work any hours as long as the job is done correctly and on time.

        No opinion of CEO

        I have been working at Anthem full-time for more than 6 years

        Pros

        -Historically a great culture with warm, genuine people who operated with high integrity and values -Size and scale enables real potential impact of programs and policies on healthcare -clear company strategy and vision for where we are going -bias towards action

        Cons

        -if you were hired before new leadership arrived, you are automatically considered “old guard” and less capable than newcomers - superficial judgments of talent based on short snippets of interactions, not real assessments of people based on longitudinal interaction—this is a huge problem -top leadership confuses “reporting” with “operating.” New leadership believes it has created more “operating discipline.” Not...

        Advice to Management

        1. Take a management course or two 2. Recognize what motivates people and what doesn’t 3. Quit acting like “know it alls”—it shows and it is not a good look 4. consistently speak in “we,” not “you” 5. Apply the same scrutiny to top leadership at Anthem that is being applied to lower levels. You will see the enablers. 6. Can’t argue that a shakeup was needed but continue to shuffle the deck and attract real cream...

        I have been working at Anthem full-time for more than 20 years

        Pros

        In my experience ability to advance career has been remarkable. Benefits are plentiful including time off policy. Work at home provides countless associates the opportunity to lead fuller lives, especially where teammates are spread around the country & internationally. Associates have ample ability to convene through remote resource groups, local office activities, etc.

        Cons

        A year ago I’d have said there were too few to mention, but in the past year there are endless rumors spreading from comments made by Exec Leadership Team that Work from Home program will be discontinued. In this day & age I believe most would be dissatisfied & many would in fact find other employment. It has even been said that ELT has made comments that there is always someone waiting in line for the jobs associates...

        Advice to Management

        Continue utilizing tools which increase production. Encourage fewer silos amongst departments & regions. Never discredit how valuable work from home is for many today to maintain any type of balance. That is not to say work-life balance exists, but most associates value this & removing it devalues the associates you have. Be transparent with changing policies so that rumors do not continue to decrease moral & trust in...
