    I worked at Anthem Ventures full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Casual environment
    -Networking opportunities through KC Magazine

    Cons

    -A culture of dishonesty and corner cutting.
    -A generally unpleasant work environment on many levels. Employees are motivated by fear more than anything else - they walk around on eggshells to avoid the CEO's frequent angry tantrums.
    -Extremely shady underpinnings: The business is tied to controversial payday lenders and there's a sea of sub-entities incorporated in Nevada, all with the purpose of avoiding scrutiny.
    -The business is in poor financial shape. They have abysmal credit, a filthy D&B report and consistently pay vendors and contractors late.
    -Poor pay, leading to unqualified hires, leading to very high turnover.

    Advice to Management

    The hiring of a COO with the necessary skill set was a good step, now go a step further and replace the rest of the C level staff. Appoint a board and hire someone with the skill set and emotional intelligence necessary to lead the organization. Build a culture of integrity, not one of fear.

    I worked at Anthem Ventures full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice-ish office. Location wasn't bad, only a block off of the interstate.

    Cons

    Anthem has a special super-secret division dedicated to obfuscating anything bad on the internet, so I'm fairly sure they'll use some shady spam tactics to hide this review, but it needs to be written nonetheless.

    A complete lack of real leadership or vision meaning a frustrating work day for anyone that wants to perform well. Instead of projects there are regular "schemes" devised to try and make money without any real investment of time or resources, resulting in a lot of busy work with no definition of what success means. Abysmal administrative functions with high turnover, meaning late paychecks, a mix and match of IT infrastructure (my desktop was old, slow and often unusable) and a general atmosphere of penny pinching. Add a volatile CEO and you've got a culture of finger pointing and CYA, which is a pretty miserable way to spend one's day.

    Advice to Management

    Have more integrity? Invest more in your employees and product? I'm not sure advice will fix Anthem's problems - their failings are entirely rooted in the personal ethics of upper management.
