What kind of career opportunities exist at Centene?

Pros

Can negotiate rates upon hiring , great health Insurance plans, lots of opportunity to move around, all benefits/deductions, are exempt status are handled electronically. If your supervisor likes you, chances are you will succeed

Cons

Low balled upon hiring, micro-management in some departments, 30 min lunches in some departments, supervisors can block department transfers at free will, supervisors can fire and harass employees and HR does not help, hiring process from job fairs can be disorganized. Hours can change including weekends with no notice or objection (even if those aren’t the hours agreed upon per hiring), Sr Leadership/Mgmt walk around like everyone else is beneath them. Not fans of work from home prior to covid.

Advice to Management

Place and direct new hires in positions that actually align with their experience + passions that meets business needs instead of only considering business needs. As a new hire I was placed in a entry level position that did not require a degree although I had a BS and lots of experience, and was not allowed to transfer out for a year+
