Negative Outlook
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.


  2. "Good besides the fact that they restructure the company every 2 years and cannot seem to stay on one path"

    I worked at WellPoint full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They have a lot of work at home jobs... Working at home is great and saves you a lot of money on commuting

    Cons

    Company restructuring and constant worry of being laid off (position outsourced)

    Advice to Management

    Pick a plan that works and stick to it and don't have so much constant turnover with upper management
