    Great company to work for...

    Mar 28, 2022 - Senior Investigator in Chesterfield, MO

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Mgmt listens to feedback from employees and makes visible changes to operations and policies based on employee engagement surveys and break out groups in town hall meetings, etc. Wages market increases and working from home have made them VERY competitive within the industry. LOTS of growth potential in a Fortune 50 company that is less than 40 years old. The sky is the limit for "go-getter" types.

    Cons

    Was a bit slow to meet demand for work from home permanence when market competitors made the move sooner, but eventually caught up. Multiple acquisitions recently and a CEO change for first time in 25 years can always mean some growing pains. Systems and processes are still catching up to the more established companies; lots of opportunities to remove redundancies, etc.

    Pros

    I love my time with Centene so far, I work fro. home mostly and also visit clients in the community to complete assessments. I love how we are in control of our daily schedules and have flex time.

    Cons

    There isn't a sense of "team" when working from home. Yes I have people who are there to answer my questions during the day but it isn't the same as an office environment where you get to chit chat over coffee on breaks.
