Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Opportunity to learn about health coaching & working with professionals in your field of expertise.

Cons

Long hours with minimal breaks. Micromanaged with by unqualified managers & management. No opportunity for growth & development of profession. Poor communication resulting in Important pieces of information not being shared with the team to tightly control the actions of the team by its leader and result in a situation that is the polar opposite of teamwork. Within that time I was employed a new person came in as my counter part with less education than I and got promoted 3 times based on favoritism, young, friends with management.

Advice to Management

Hire real managers, train mangers to manage & build a team rather than to micro manage & destroy a team & individual's self worth.

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

    Pros

    The facilities. Think about that. Not the work environment... Not the people... Not management... The building, the cafeteria and the location are all quite nice. The rest blows chunks.

    Cons

    Sweat shop work environment. Normal work weeks are frowned upon and exisiting crony-style relationships are valued well above talent.

    Advice to Management

    None. They have clearly heard all of this and many of the other reviews here at Glassdoor over time show they are not changing things for the better.
