Pros

Benefits are better than most Insurance Companies I have worked for recently

Cons

Everyone from VP's on down try to protect their positions by proving their abilities and importance. It makes everyone watch their backs and step on everyone else. Sad. But it is a job!

Advice to Management

Constant change does not strengthen a company. A year is not long enough to learn an individuals potential when their achievements are credited to others in positions of management trying to protect themselves.

    Pros

    Technology, Some really great and smart people at positions below manager. I really loved working with my peers. Great group of guys and gals. There are some good managers and some who want to be good, I had a good one but he left and we were stuck with a big company reject.

    Cons

    Some management(not all) strives to get promoted on the backs of others. A recient manager didn't manage our group...he spent all there time trying to impress leadership so they could get promoted. FYI Wellcare is looking to outsource a significant majority of IT to India. Look at technologies that are being implemented to make the workforce mobile. Trust me on this!!!!! It makes financial sense for them because its good for the bottom line. They will deny this....Look at their actions. Look at what they are doing.

    Advice to Management

    My Exit Interview. restore the HR ideal of "Work Life Balance". It does not exist in Wellcare IT perhaps it does for the rest of the company.
    *****Really investigate IT management*****. You can spot the problems areas, just look for recient departures and you will find the poor management. Look at the performance ratings of the departing employees. Look for a manager and a director who have previously been repremanded for conduct or accused of bad conduct.
    Where there is smoke there is fire or you can wait for someone else to leave and tell you the same information I am.
    - Stop listening too those who talk the loudest, spend time listening to those who do their jobs.
    - Look at the performance of the teams and attribute it to the team.
    - Stop making decisions based on the majority rule. Empower your team members to make decisions and carry them out.

    Pros

    Pay is good, location good

    Cons

    Habitual liars do well
    "Perception management" above all else
    If a manager does not like a subordinate, even one with many years of great service, I have seen several cases of people being "managed out"
    Finding a "reason" to fire people seems to have replaced layoffs as a practice.
    HR serves as a management support system with a mission to cover for abusive managers

    Advice to Management

    Try instilling the golden rule "do unto others" in the management culture.
