    I have been working at Centene full-time

    Pros

    Salary & Benefits; Paid well only to keep employees from quitting

    Cons

    HealthNet Merger has ruined company morale; constant chaos; no clear direction; unrealistic deadlines for merger of applications & teams. If offered a job at Centene DO NOT ACCEPT IT. If you need a job, plan on staying for a year or less.

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

    Pros

    Flexible working schedule
    GREAT local team Supervisor
    Team works very well together
    "OK" benefits

    Cons

    Disorganized company overall
    Takes a long time for upper management to get order and workflows
    A lot of unnecessary meetings
    Hiring is unorganized, and recruiters not knowledgeable in position they are hiring for. Hard to explain experience when they have no idea what you are talking about, or what your skill set even means

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to streamline the way things are done, and have set workflows. Similar managed care health plans have the set workflows down to a science. It is not hard, and makes your employees job easier and therefore more productive

    I worked at Centene full-time

    Pros

    The base pay is good.

    Cons

    Leadership is clueless and pushes for growth even when they have no idea what they are doing. They are quick to hand out punishment for things you were not trained on and don't encourage a work/life balance at all.

    Advice to Management

    Take accountability for your employees and stop throwing them under the bus. Communicate more effectively.

    I worked at Centene full-time

    Pros

    Perfect location downtown Tacoma. Senior Management in the Tacoma location is great, CEO walks around and says hello to everyone.

    Cons

    Mid-Management is ridiculous. There is not a team-centric culture and every department is out for themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Either re-train mid level managers or bring in others who will build up the team, rather than put them against eachother.

    Pros

    The benefits are not bad, so far all the Sup I've worked with are really good and shows empathy. Being able to use your pto as needed comes in very handy. Some dept have unlimited over time.

    Cons

    Pay and NYC location... the first month I worked at this location I wanted to find a new job. The company is ok but its stressful working for such low wages.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting your friends
