    I worked at Centene full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    No micromanagement allowing mostly full autonomy and opportunities to be creative. Great pay, great benefits, great vacation allowances. Good company overall.

    Cons

    New boss took away my autonomy. Processes are not lean, but they are getting there. People steal credit for your work.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure the bosses continue to allow creativity from their creative employees and don’t claim credit for their ideas and their work.

    I worked at Centene full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Centene as a whole is a great company, the health plans are the issue. Namely Georgia

    Cons

    Peach State has a management problem especially upper management

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to effectively communicate with your staff and not brow beat them. No work life balance and constant verbal attacks from upper management. Too many friends of the lady in charge that have no know how yet continue to remain in undeserving titles. You will continue to lose good people until you learn the art of communication and how to effectively manage and develop some real process improvement techniques.

    I have been working at Centene full-time

    Pros

    Centrally located in the city

    Cons

    No room for advancement, very segregated by race (blacks hang out with blacks, whites hang out with whites, etc), very poor communication from the top down, middle management gets blamed for everything bad and executives take credit for everything good, high turn-over
