Now I see that I have long idealized this company. I’m still here, I haven’t been laid off, but it’s enough to see what the company has done to my colleagues and for me it’s a big warning sign not to put in any more effort and to get out of here as... — read more

I simply do not understand it. No matter how much experience you have, how much loyalty you have shown over the years working here, how great your work is... Anthem enjoys micromanagement. If for any reason I leave this company as soon as... — read more
