There is plenty of back stabbing so don't trust anyone - including HR.

    The environment is extremely toxic. There needs to be big changes in the leadership.

Negotiate hard for your initial salary because raises are few and far between.

I think it all depends on the department you work in. Some are more flexible than others, some have terrible work/life balance.

    Maybe. It's just a very male-dominated organization. It's not a bad culture, and they treat women well, but not equally.

It all depends on what department you work in and who your supervisor is. There is no policy set across the board, so it's inconsistent if you have flexibility or not.

    Traditionally, we have not been as flexible as we should be to attract and retain talent. This "old school" mentality may be changing, albeit slowly.

The culture at Centene is unfriendly and unhelpful. There is a push to have everything self service via a website, but then there is no one to offer help.

The turnover rate is extremely high. Take another job offer if you have one. If not, think of working at CRR as a one or two year thing. No one, not even the best employees, has a long-term future there.

Very political!! Do not cross HR people - very vindictive, aside from lazy and slow.

The pay isn't great, and not all the decision-makers are highly competent, but most of the coworkers are very nice, supportive, and passionate about what they do.
