Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

The dry cleaning benefit.
The availability of decent pens.
There is never a dull moment.
That is about it.

Initially, I felt as if my work was fulfilling a higher purpose with the impact the company appears to make on the lives of individuals in "vulnerable populations." This was what appealed to me.

Cons

Then the impact on the lives of people who work for the company became evident. Horribly understaffed. How they expect to handle any sort of expansion is beyond me.

Advice to Management

Nah. Why bother? The company is unsustainable as is and they don't listen anyway.

    I have been working at Centene full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The pay is competitive, and the benefits are above average. I consider the corporation to be stable. There are opportunities to grow. The senior management team is strong with no recent turnover.

    Cons

    I can list no cons for the business unit. At the corporate level, it is often heard that bandwidth is limited to support the needs of the business units and priority is given to new business.

    Advice to Management

    At the local health plan level in Indiana, no advice to offer, as I am very satisfied as an employee. At the corporate level, improve the level of IT and infrastructure support given to the health plans. Corporate resources seem very "lean" and overwhelmed with multiple priorities at any given time. The company is growing and could use more staff, especially to better develop the platforms the health plans use daily to operate their business units.

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

    Pros

    Plenty of room for growth

    Cons

    Building at physical capacity and most groups severly understaffed.

    Advice to Management

    Senior leadership completely out of touch with employees. Hire more resources and shuffle them around less.
