    I worked at WellPoint full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    work at home is available for some employees. Some nice and professional nurses

    Cons

    Management very poor. Managers very demeaning to nurses, do not listen. Workflow changes and job descriptions not at all what nurses were hired to do. Computer answers calls and sends to nurses without nurse having ANY knowledge of member or their needs- VERY unprofessional.

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN TO THE NURSES. Allow the nurses to act as professionals that they are. Revamp your CM/DM programs- they are NOT working.

    Pros

    Great team members, virtual office.

    I communicated that I had the bandwidth to take on more work but was not given any. I eventually left because I didn't have enough to keep me busy and engaged.

    Pros

    a great working environment. onsite gym and opportunity to work at home.They can not tell you a head of time if they now of a down size but a boss might say if someone comes and sits in your cub it is bad or if some says and then they say an expression they a re trying to let you know they plan to get rid of you months a head of time. they pick some lame reason tot ell you

    Cons

    They let a lot of people go for no reason. People can bump you out of your jump from any place in the country due to telecommuting. Alot of people are related some have the same last name. Rumors some people gave favors or cash to keep jobs. When they want you gone they say anything to get you gone. Co workers will gang up on people if they think there is a reduction in a team coming.

    Advice to Management

    stop playing favorites stop hiring people as they are related to people, supervisors should have done the job they are above. They should answer questions

    Pros

    The pros of working for WellPoint are the benefits of course. Employees pay very little in benefits. This makes it very attractive for employees to stay with the company.

    Cons

    The major challenge of working for WellPoint is being worried if you were going to be the next employee they lay off due to reorganization.

    Advice to Management

    My only advice to build a employee coaching structure.
