    I have been working at Centene full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good health benefits if you participate in Healthy Pathway program
    Cafe is nice plus as an employee you get a discounted price as an employee.

    Cons

    I have been here less than 5 months and I am ready to leave. Many of my issues are the same ones others have already posted.

    Senior management acts as if you should be happy you have a job.

    Former Employee - Applications Software Engineer in Clayton, MO (US)

    I worked at Centene full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good Health benefits.
    On site cafe.
    Worked with some great people.

    Cons

    Leadership will praise your hard work and long hours but less than a minute later will tell you that you should be happy you have a job in this economy.

    Too many managers and not enough staff to actually do the work which leads to a very stressful work environment trying to turn a deliverable around in a short period of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice would be to begin thinking of your IT staff as an valuable asset and not as a expendible resource.

    Comments from IT leadership describing why IT professionals chose IT as a career like "this is the life we chose" only highlights your distain for your employees. I think you would be hard pressed to find anybody in IT who chose it as a career so they could work long hours including weekends and major holidays.
