I have been working at WellPoint full-time

Pros

Higher end of the salary spectrum
Above average benefits package
Lots of career opportunities for motivated people
Smart people work here

Cons

Frequent reorgs and subsequent shifts in direction
Cost of health insurance is outrageous (?!)
Very complicated organization to navigate

Advice to Management

You never get anywhere if you change directions every few months! Make the tough decisions (i.e. quit trying to please everyone) and simplify the organization and the IT environment, as it's a mess. Overall a decent place for a career, but you need to have patience for the roller coaster ride.

    I have been working at WellPoint full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great culture and People. Management has an open door policy where you can get the support that you need when you need it.

    Cons

    Impossible to advance and you do not have too much liberty with the projects that you are working on. There needs to be greater opportunity for innovation. Further, there is a silo effect within each department despite the fact that someone else in another department could be working on the exact same project which is an inefficient use of resources.

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees more autonomy when working on projects and provide them with greater and more clarified opportunities for career advancement.
