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

    Pros

    Positive atmosphere with friendly supportive peers and approachable leaders. Compensation and benefit package are one of the best I've seen. Paid holidays, 401k, Stock options, full health, dental, vision, company paid life on all family with option for supplemental.

    Cons

    Salaried employees have to use PTO for doctor's appointments and beginning next year (2017) our PTO must accumulate, without the option for any carry over at the years end.

    Advice to Management

    There is a difference between Salaried employees and hourly employees, many salaried employees look for flexibility with their schedules that allow the liberty of leaving 15 minutes early or attending a doctors appointments, making up the time elsewhere, to ensure quality and quantity of work. Placing all employees on the same PTO accrual and or policy disregards exempt staff.

    Pros

    Salary is comparable for education, experience and position.
    Benefits begin on the 1st of the month following your hire date. PTO is accrued while sick days are granted immediately as well as paid holidays are generous. The staff truly believe in serving the underserved (Medicaid). People are generally nice and believe in serving the community.

    Cons

    There is little room for advancement in subsidiary companies if you are not close to the corporate locations as this company does not promote a remote/work from home culture.
    Due to expansions, the company is hiring remote workers for some positions, but do not believe in giving remote staff the office equipment to do their jobs.
    Some management could benefit from taking a course in professionalism and avoid bullying their employees.

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to hire remote employees for areas where there are no offices, associates should be given the same secure equipment associates have access to while working in the office (PC, Doc, Keyboard, Mouse Monitor, Scanner, Printer). This company should not expect associates to commute to a Print Shop (FedEx) to print, scan and email documents when it should be done securely from the home office inside the corporate network, not to mention it is costly, wasteful and unnecessary to do business this way.

    Pros

    Wonderful Co workers. The work is very rewarding. I feel like I get to make a difference in the lives of our customers. Great pay and benefit package. I love the 10 paid holidays each year. They reward you for hard work. There is room for advancement. Nice bonuses for referring staff. The management is very approachable including the VP. Coworkers care about each other and are a real team.

    Cons

    We work in Healthcare so the name of the game is change. I feel like the amount and frequency of changes could be decreased at least a little.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes the message feels a little punitive. You could adjust the presentation to make it feel more educational.
