    The people in my department are wonderful and willing to go the extra mile because they are appreciated by middle management

    Upper management does not listen to concerns regarding understaffing. Just like any other big corporation.

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

    Pros

    Many interesting projects due to the size of the organization
    Good compensation

    Cons

    A lot of paper pushing
    Slow integration of newly acquired businesses
    A lot of mediocre and substandard talent stays on for years dragging everyone's productivity down

    Advice to Management

    After my employer was acquired by WellPoint, the acquired company has been in a strategic limbo for three years. As everyone focused on a technical integration, customers were neglected, market research was abandoned, and innovation was forsaken. As a result, at the end of the three year integration, WellPoint received not a cutting edge technology but a three year old product as the rest of the market players continued innovating. The opportunity to make customers' experience engaging and personalized using newly acquired assets was completely squandered as most employees of the newly acquired company who had any ambition decided to move on to more interesting projects instead of suffering from neglect for another year.
