    Pros

    Company offers growth opportunities to who it wants. Was great when it was a private company and fairly new. Great people worked there who wanted to teach associates and help them expand their knowledge.

    Cons

    Became publicly traded and went from sugar to .... Now it is a company owned by WellPoint and full of politicians and pretenders who sit behind desks screaming about things like Customer Centricity and Work Life balance because it sounds good and wins elections, not because it's what they actually practice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop playing politics with people's lives. Learn that you are in a business that has a profound effect on lives. Changes in public policy and your desire to keep padding your pockets shouldn't undercut the very thing that you claim to be in business for. Hire managers who can get into the trenches and do the work of the people they terrorize (us lowly line staff members). No one knows better about what goes on and how things ought to get done than the ones actually doing the work. A degree, an Amex, and a friend in a high position shouldn't equal job opportunity.

    Very bureaucratic. It's all about who you know, not what you know.

    Pros

    One of the best employers in the area for salary and benefits. Although, that is not saying much.

    Cons

    Management is not very diverse. Talent and intelligence not valued. Opportunities are few once you reach a certain level, but plentiful for those that enter at the entry level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for those with talent, not only the ones that you're willing to go out to lunch with.
