    Pros

    The work environment and culture is amazing. Very professional. Work equipment and app & systems are also easy to work with. Best job ever. Feel Appreciated and Valued at work.

    Cons

    It has no direct HR office. I left for surgery and it was handled through Cigna. Very scary experience, chasing paperwork, worrisome if still have a job.. etc however, Noel with Cigna is the case worker assigned to me, she stayed in touch either by mail or phone calls. I just wished paperwork would be less. It was asked for twice the in less than 6 weeks.

    Advice to Management

    Managements is awesome, they have lots on their plates, do potlucks, meetings, stay in touch.. BUT if I can advise something would be.. get me on board to help the little guys or those under performing to be a top performer! I’ve been thinking of them and can come up with a developmental plan. :)

    Pros

    Centene cares about it's members. They put a lot of emphasis on Employee Engagement. They provide a lot of training classes for personal growth and development. There is also a good system in place for annual reviews and bonuses. There are a lot of great employees here who have a lot of knowledge and passion that you can learn from. Great benefits!

    Cons

    Although there is emphasis on obtaining Employee Engagement, I don't think the follow through is that great. The work is demanding and you have to be willing to put in the extra hours, but if you don't find this rewarding or don't like an intense work environment this is NOT the place for you. There is also a lot of office politics and at times drama that I really could do without.

    Advice to Management

    I think that there should be a way for employees to rate and provide feedback their managers to be included in the managers review. The company as a whole needs to be better about promoting within their dept instead of being so willing to bring someone in from the outside.

    I have been working at Centene full-time

    Pros

    They pay well! Starting: 18 days of PTO + 10-11 paid holidays + 4 sick days per year, 401k, medical and dental benefits, bonuses, etc.

    Cons

    The only con really is the professional dress code in Clayton office, but the other locations are business casual with jeans on fridays! No big deal at all.

    Accrued vacation time system. It's not necessarily a con but just an adjustment from the previous annual time.

    I have been working at Centene full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Dynamic, growing company that operates in lines of business that result in lots of interesting multistate tax issues. The culture is high-performance but the work-life balance is good. There are many smart and experienced professionals so it's a good place to learn and develop. Ideas are welcomed and considered. The company is growing so job security seems good. The company also does excellent work in the community; for example, listen to the story on NPR about the facility the company opened in Ferguson after the unrest there.

    Cons

    If you want a job that never changes, and you do the same thing every day, and doesn't present challenges, this may not be the place for you. Also, sometimes the hiring outpaces the office space.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that there's enough office/cubicle space available in advance of hiring so that sharing of cubicles is limited to a few weeks, or eliminated altogether.
