Does Centene offer parental leave?

Pros

Good leadership and opportunities to grow within the company. However the Employee need to have that self-determination to take the leap. Centene recently developed good benefits like the paid parental leave, though very late in the corporate world among other pro-employee companies in Healthcare.

Cons

There is more room to grow for HR in employee retention. The Company is more focused for having appetite on big acquisitions, whereas contributing to Employee 401(k) savings to vesting 100% only when reached 5 year tenure, which is absurd. No Work/Life balance.

Advice to Management

Employees can only stay or come back when you benchmark good governance.

Does Centene offer employee discounts?

Pros

The benefits at Centene are great - discount on company stock, on-site daycare, fitness center and health clinic, among other benefits. Tons of room for advancement for those that work hard. Just added 3 weeks paternity/maternity leave for 2020.

Cons

The only con is the company maternity leave - 6 weeks STD (60% of pay) then an additional paid 3 weeks, but this cuts into your bonus and vacation time. They are slowly getting better.

Does Centene offer a wellness program?

Pros

Excellent pay and benefits, growing organization and many opportunities for growth and professional development. Great onboarding/training program. Availability to transfer, to work just about anywhere in the US.

Cons

Depending on the plan you work for (location), you may not get the best plan specific training. Being such a large company, things are done differently in different places which may conflict with initial training.

Advice to Management

Specifically for the IL YouthCare team: a specialty training department for YouthCare that know what YouthCare is about would be helpful. Too many questions, that don't have answers. Need protocols streamlined. Documentation is excessive.

Great onboarding/training program.
