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

Pros

Many good people to work with and flexible work schedule for some departments

Cons

Total compensation was not impressive, budget is always an issue, and constant organization changes. Executives have old school mentality with many things. Executive team needs to change, learn from Google or other tech companies especially for HR.

Advice to Management

Be generous with total compensation for associates, not only for the executive or VPs. Increase merit increase, bonus, 401K matching, pension plan, free benefits premium, and tuition reimbursement. Free up some of the budget! Have some generous parties for celebrations to boost the morale.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at WellPoint as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fun environment, GREAT benefits if hired full time and GREAT company environment with many fun days and activities.

    Cons

    Operates like a sinking ship. Went through 3 CEOs in my short time there. TOO MANY shakeups at the upper level, will axe and rehire large amounts of workers seemingly random, now offshoring large parts of the lower levels of the company overseas (Antigua, Argentina, Manila, Panama, India, Uruguay and more) and its now depressing to walk in the once bustling buildings that are now ghost halls.

    Advice to Management

    No communication. Not even to other management teams. Axed the whole IT dept stateside, moved it to Uruguay and noone was sure what was going on aside HR.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at WellPoint as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Great place that allows learning
    - Willingness to give interns a lot of responsibilities
    - Good Pay for interns

    Cons

    - The current work force is older, so if you are expecting to find someone under the age of 30 you are better off looking else where.
    - The technology used is old

    Advice to Management

    Encourage better training for interns and a mentor program would be helpful.
