    I have been working at WellPoint full-time

    Pros

    They offer wonderful benefits, and opportunities to expand one's educational horizons, a decent employee referral plan, and 401-k. Opportunities for cross country employment, nationally recognized firm. Strong position on Wall Street, not a "Johnny Come Lately" Firm.

    Cons

    1.They are not a top payer in the industry as compared to their competitors,
    2.Specifically for my region, the gate keepers maintain a certain demographic for Management positions,overall crony-ism.
    3 Departmental administration out of touch with the realities of the program, and display a general lack of concern for employee concerns.
    4. Poor communication between Mgmt and staff.
    5.Dishonest "open-door" policy,

    Actuarial Analyst II Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at WellPoint.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, was contacted by the hiring manager to set up a phone interview. The phone interview was a quick 10 minute screening to make sure I'm interested in the job and that my general qualifications were legitimate, and it quickly translated into an on-site interview about a week later.

    The on-site was nearly a full-day interview - 6 credentialed actuaries, 45 minutes each. I don't think there was anything unexpected, and felt most of the interviews were very casual and nice; in the spare time, I was able to talk about some personal things which made me feel more comfortable overall. Be prepared to talk about your previous experience as they will want to know how much of it is relevant to the current position. I was asked a couple of riddles, but it was more of a way to see how you think, rather than being pressed for getting it right.

    Two weeks after the interview, I was extended an offer. I was also given a very accurate timeline when I followed up a week after the interview, which I appreciated and respected very much.
