Approves of CEO

I have been working at WellPoint full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Highly competitive compensation while working for a national company and numerous opportunities for advancement. Many positions qualify for partial or full-time work work at home.

Cons

Company reorganizes frequently. Staff VP and higher titles have trouble staying with the organization for more than 3 years on average. Frequent re-orgs make it difficult to hold people accountable to goals because failures are then passed on to the next leader.

Advice to Management

Focus on continuity of management. This would allow you to engage the best talent, leverage the broad knowledge in the company and would cause contributors to see their work as something they will have to stand behind vs. something that can hand off to their successor in the next re-org.

    I worked at WellPoint full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Generous Pay and good benefit.

    Cons

    Frequent change of management and re-organization. Frequent lay-offs. Has to be located in major offices such as Indianapolis, Cincinati, St Louis, and Los Angeles to have a good chance for career growth. This is a place where you really need to try hard to know someone or the management for career growth. There are a lot of example of mediocre folks in high positions...

    Advice to Management

    Focus on people who can do the job, pull the boat forward, get the revenue as well as keeping the cost reasonable. Get rid of folks who just do the show and tell a few lies.

    Pros

    Allows you to work from home and flex your work schedule

    Cons

    They don't have the most competitive benefits or salary. Requires you to get your FSA, so the result is the company has to many FSA's which ends up restricting ability to move up.
