    I have been working at WellCare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Here at WellCare under the current Executive Leadership Team, I feel that they are taking WellCare to the next level. They care about the members they serve and the associates that do the day to day work. I've been in Healthcare over 25 years - I've worked in Hospitals, Hospices and small companies - WellCare is the best by far. The I.T. team I work with is the best group of people I have worked with in a long time. They care about each other and the success of the team. Our manager is such a good leader and wants to see us all succeed and become great leaders.

    Cons

    I honestly can't think of any

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Fast growing company so lots of opportunities and they really value people who work hard.

    Cons

    Growth has challenges and some areas have better leadership than others. New state implementations are problematic with more than expected tension between cooperate (Tampa) leadership and those actually running health plans across the country. Some departments value work-life balance but if you really want to advance working lots of hours gets noticed here.

    Advice to Management

    More IT service support needed across the country. Really access what can be centralized and what functions need more local control and buy-in. More oversight of subcontractors needed.

    Pros

    This is an amazing company to work for. I have worked in large companies and small in a variety of industries in the IT field, and I have never worked for a company that strives so hard to do the Igor thing by their employees. Work/life balance is great, time off is great, the flexibility that the company and my boss demonstrates is great. WellCare in my opinion does a fantastic job vetting out leaders (and Even though I am now an individual contributor I have several years experience leading teams). I absolutely love my boss. My coworkers are top notch, and I truly enjoy work my work atmosphere, my coworkers, and my actual job responsibilities are interesting. Been here two years, and will stay the rest of my career if they'll keep me. Compensation is very good. 401K is excellent. CEO and CIO are down to Earth people.

    Cons

    The only thing that comes to mind is medical benefits are kind of pricey. But that just seems to be the trend now wherever you go.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for treating us right. A lot of organizations could learn a lot from your example.

    I have been working at WellCare full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of perks for employees. Beautiful campus with lots of amenities. Competitive pay. Option for 100% telecommuting. Good training and support.

    Cons

    It's a very large company, so with the instability of government sponsored health care, lay-offs are a concern.

    I have been working at WellCare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Mission. Local Community Support. Member facing Associates are phenomenal, good pay.

    Cons

    Lack of Career Development, preferential treatment, no work-life balance, burn/churn management mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Middle/Upper Management needs evaluation on skills. Manage/Train up or out. A Servent based management style would be advantageous and would go a long way to stem rampant turnover.

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

    Pros

    I have enjoyed a great experience at Wellcare for a few years. My department and management is great.

    Cons

    It's concerning not to feel valued for promotion when reaching out. I have seen a few employees in my department get promoted into a department I also wanted to work in. They had zero experience in what was listed as a "requirement".
    It a appears to be a pick and chose system.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the pick and chose system for promoting. It looks like favoritism. Be honest. If a person is not "qualitifed" for a position, give suggestions on how to get there.

    Pros

    Great company. The CEO cares about the employees as well as the members and the direction of the company.

    Cons

    It really depends on who your area leader is and/or if they have they knowledge and skill to lead and understand what needs to be done.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes you need experienced leadership when implementing new areas in the company.
