    I have been working at Centene full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Management really cares about their employees. The benefits are fantastic and the pay is good. Very generous vacation, sick, and holiday pay. They actually listen to their employees I couldn't ask for a better company to work for.

    Cons

    No cons at this time

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.

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

    Pros

    I loved the work and for 6 years was happy with what I did. I knew I made a difference and did my job well. Not many has the same skill set I did and there was always work to do.

    Cons

    1. It's an old white boys club. I say that as a white individual. It sucks that's how MFN rolls. They say they value diversity but they don't. They will have a token diverse person in an exec role but they're there to be a face, not make any changes or impact.
    2. They pay really well but that hurts when you leave.
    3. They layoff the good people and keep the undereducated white males. Why? See #1 above.
    4. They don't want you if you are female and over 40. Think I'm lying? See the number of females 40+ who got hit in the January "reorganization."
    5. HR is a joke. Talent acquisition couldn't find their rear ends with both hands and a map. So many excuses on why they didn't do their jobs.
    6. MFN said the HealthNet employees needed to learn the Centene way and the Centene way would prevail. He lied.
    7. They never entertained the idea of working from home. At all. Even a 25% WFH option would cut costs and improve morale.

    Advice to Management

    Read the list of cons and actually take action to make this more than a joke of a company. And think twice before you get rid of the good people.
