I have been working at WellPoint full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Work from home options are amazing- with software today they know if you are working or not, having someone over your shoulder in a cube isn't going to stop someone from being a slacker if that's who they are. They hire professionals and treat them accordingly.

Cons

Growth opportunities are very limited- promotions are rare. It could be the economy since no one leaves there is very limited movement.

Advice to Management

Take a look at your promotion process. If the economy turns around you could be in a world of hurt with knowledge walking out the door.

    I have been working at WellPoint full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It was steady work but the pay was sub par for the industry. There were opportunities fo work from home only it did not interest me There were periods of mandatory overtime that could sometimes be excessive but it would look good on the paycheck.

    Cons

    There was always risk of being downsized. I worked there for over six years and one day they virtually downsized my entire department with the exception of a few people.

    Advice to Management

    Management does not lead by example. Take do not the time to get to know the employees and humanize the team concept.
