What is the company culture like at Centene?

Pros

Fairly easy to move up; Most jobs are available for remote work; There is some flexibility in work schedule and there is plenty of work so job security typically isn't a problem; there are some great benefits including paid tuition;

Cons

Terrible work life balance for any leadership (Supervisor, Manager etc.) position but other positions are fine; Depending on the location you work in there are serious issues with favoritism; Gradual growth was preached but not followed so now the company is playing catch up and tiring employees as a result;

How was the interview at Centene?

Pros

Interview process was a great experience. I was kept informed of the next steps and/or of any upcoming changes. I am currently on week 2 and the onboarding process has been one of the best and most thorough I have experiences, especially in a fully remote environment. My equipment arrived well before my start date, however one of my monitors was broken. I was promptly sent another 2 days later. Everyone I worked with from the interview process to getting set up were all very pleasant and helpful. Being in a remote environment, it can be hard to navigate your first week, but due to the process CNC has in place, it was rather simple. I believe I made the right choice joining Centene!

Cons

None as of week 2! :)

Interview process was a great experience.

What is the hiring process like at Centene?

Pros

Starting pay, remote work (which they were adamantly against until a chunk of the company pushed back), paid holidays

Cons

low raises, terrible bonuses, hiring process takes forever, bad leadership (directors and above fail to communicate with anyone below them or mislead them, leaving everyone out of the loop, executives push for constant increase in productivity even when profit goals are exceeded and then dodge questions about why raises are low).

Advice to Management

Pay your workers what they're actually worth, not what shareholders and executives think they're worth. Treat your workers like people and not machines. Try being transparent about policies instead of gaslighting and lying. Speed up the hiring process

What have employees experienced with background checks at Centene?

Pros

Pay is good, training, room for growth

Cons

The background check is insane. I have a former colleague who “failed” a background check due to a clerical error regarding her education. She was initially hired and job offer rescinded. My background was also an issue but I was able to get it taken care of. There is a lot of micro management and not enough inclusion in certain departments. Management has its favorites.

Advice to Management

Get a new background check process. You miss out on good employees due to it.
