I have been working at WellCare (More than a year)

Pros

Job security - well, this is still a false notion. Once CMS audits the company or the company loses star scores that means company will lose contracts and that would mean layoffs! everything is hanging by a thread. Since the medicare/medicaid space is monopolized by few firms they will continue to survive.

Cons

* below average market pay
* monthly healthcare premiums rose 40% for 2013. this was difficult to digest considering you are working for a healthcare firm.
* only 2 weeks PTO whereas the industry trend is towards 3 or 4 weeks of PTO.
* No sharing of wealth - Senior management get stock options, bonuses, short term and long term incentives and a separate retirement plan.
* Business process - most of it is broken and its running on patch work.
* Communication - all internal communication from upper management is via emails. so far, I haven't seen any VP and above attend any town halls meeting or take questions!

Advice to Management

* Put Employees first and I repeat, employees first.
* Fix business process
* Improve our star scores( star scores went down across the board and yet senior management gets 300% bonus for 2012 - what is the explanation?) Tie star scores to bonuses!!
* Provide generous PTO and Sick days and re-instate federal holidays like MLK day, Presidents day etc.

    Cons

    Not the best 401K match and health insurance.
