    Pros

    Good place to learn, member interaction is daily with opportunity to improve teaching and interviewing skills. Good place to upgrade your computer skills, increase your ease with diverse medical issues and doing diosease management.

    Cons

    Chaotic environment, disconnected bosses, no advocacy for direct line staff. Manager dtreats people as objects. Intimidation rules the way with this company management though most of the direct line staff are caring, hard working people- they get no respect and have little say. Senior Management does not even show respect of managment/ The VPs change every 6 months.

    Advice to Management

    focus on quality of member care and not your profits all the time, metrics are all that matter to management

    Pros

    WellPoint makes money, tons of it. And they will make tons more money when Healthcare reform hits. They are here to stay.

    Cons

    They will make tons of money with or without you. Their processes are horrible but that doesn't matter. It doesn't matter whether you do a crap job, okay job, or excellent job. You will not be compensated for what you do for them and when they do layoffs, they will lay you off without a thought. Management likes to try new obviously stupid things and then throw it away. That means many wasted months of effort. At the end Management knows they make tons of money so they don't really care about their people or the processes...why worry about anything when the cash keeps flowing into the bank. You will not be appreciated there! By the way, you do not receive free or cmpetitive healthcare here even though it is a healthcare company (so what are the perks for working at a healthcare company?)

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employees. Instead of saying thank you thank you thank you, try throwing your workers a bone every once in awhile.
