Don't work for these creeps!

I used to work for Anthem until I got laid off as a New Years gift in 2016. I thank God every day that I am no longer there, they are a miserable company to work for and incompetently run. Most of their managers are incompetent, although well paid... read more

Anthem - Reduction In Force

Occurring today. Company wide. No corporate communication emails. So difficult to tell how deep the cuts are. Every area was apparently asked to cut.

Question about anthem benefits and waiting periods

It looks like anthem has some benefits that they did not have in the past. I see that they now have parental leave. Do you have to work for the company for a certain amount of time to be eligible for parental leave?

Anthem found a loophole

Not to mention Anthem also created their own outsource company in India. I wouldn’t be surprised if even clients that require their claims to be processed on shore will be processed in India in the near future. If Anthem owns their own off shore... read more

I worked at Anthem for a total of 28 years. When I received an offer for early retirement I had mixed feelings about taking it. I decided to take the offer and run. It was the best decision I've made for my career. The environment is TOXIC. The... read more

If you're not already looking for a new job, start NOW

Don't sit around until these creeps decide to boot you out like some drunk in a bar at 2am. Find something else and walk out of this landfill on your own two feet and on your own terms so you can hang on to your dignity and self respect.

We need proper leadership

Management at Anthem is a joke. Half of them have no idea what they are doing, and the other half will do whatever it takes to make themselves look good at your expanse. Instead of supporting talented workers, they will promote those they know will... read more

Anthem denies reasonable accomodations

Whomever said Anthem is getting uglier is right. I am disabled and I am being denied a reasonable accommodation which is a violation of IDEA. They discriminate and are leaving me out to dry.

Anthem is not what it used to be

If you can, stay away from Anthem. People get laid off on yearly bases, and you are expected to pick up the slack, with no compensation. My caseload keeps increasing, my pay stays the same, and I don't even get paid for overtime, which is necessary... read more

Anthem, never stable and becoming uglier

My #1 complaint about Anthem is layoffs, they happen all the time and at least one time every year. Some groups have mulitiple layoffs, so it's hard to have any stability when you know you may be laid off. Also, I do not know why we do constant... read more

Mason OH being added as a new core location but there is not any word on what the competency will be. Guess Tom had to realize that most of the talent at Anthem would rather leave than be forced to relocate. The glories of Transformation that the... read more

Denying Unemployment Benefits

Anthem has not only let good, long term employees go, they are also denying unemployment benefits in mulitiple states, even though they said they wouldn't deny those benefits. It's dishonest and completely insane.
