      Good Company, Terrible Leadership

      Pros

      I enjoyed my experience at Anthem, and my manager, for the entirety of my tenure there (which was 5 years). My manager made sure that I had a robust work/life balance, everything I needed to work from home full time, and that we were well taken care of during our in-person biannual PI planning sessions. Pay was average, but bonuses and benefits were good.

      Cons

      Beginning in early 2019, IT has been moved overseas. Stakeholders are not honestly informed at what changes are happening, and the work culture has become a toxic waterfall of "do all this programming to make everything more 'streamlined'" and "teach all these 'new employees' who are totally not stealing your job, how to do your job". Layoffs are done monthly (and have not paused even throughout the pandemic, even though Anthem is making bank from COVID), and only a handful of American workers remain present at the company. To keep the bad press away, Anthem donates huge amounts to charities and supports human rights campaigns, all while slashing their American workforce under the guise of "having a new vision" and positive change. Every Thursday is now a typical layoff day, and word is that Anthem plans to move their development, claims, and design to their overseas, privately owned contracting company in India, by March 2021. Before this nonsense, I planned on being at Anthem for life.

      No one is safe

      Pros

      Diversity and inclusion and cultural values.

      Cons

      There was a time when I felt safe and valued as an associate at Anthem, but lately no one has been safe. The attitude is to pull in the purse strings at all times, but why? Anthem is making money, their stocks are in a good place and at this point it seems like greed. People who have been loyal and given their all, hours upon hours of work without question can get the hatchet just like anyone else. Work life balance is really non-existent, benefits are way to high and a company that prided themselves on associates working remotely has all but eliminated that opportunity, and for what? Collaboration, but in some cases where the remote offices are small you may not even be working with people who you would collaborate with anyway.

      Pros

      Pay is good, lot of good people, work from him environment for many years

      Cons

      Too many to mention, really inexperienced “leaders”leaders who do nothing but play politics well, current CEO gives a lot of lip service to work life balance but has done absolutely NOTHING to actually address any problem areas or do anything in the areas of payment innovation for physicians or improving the quality of care delivered to members. Bunch of United Health has-beens. How about some real innovation and not just talk of what you think everyone wants to hear. Hold these highly paid leeches accountable for change , just like they say needs to be done to health care providers.

      Management encourage work/life balance. Awesome benefits. Autonomy You know the expectations. There is room to grow in your career and personally.

      Cons

      Healthcare is ever changing, so our workflow processes do as well. It’s not actually a con; change is an essential part of healthcare.
