Wow. Heartless. The 401k plan is not going to make up for the difference. Thanks Careless!
They take, take and take from their employees. They don’t care!
Was anyone else confused by the positive tone from the CEO call on Friday? I feel like the last few months, all I have been hearing is 1) how bad things are financially, 2) how bad we are doing in government programs, and 3) how we aren't on target... — read more

I don't know about you but this seems a bit suspicious
Keep the $30 gift card and give me my annual bonus instead. What the heck can you do with $30 given inflation and the cost of living. Do the math. Assume 260 working days in 2022. That's a whopping $0.12 bonus for each day you worked. What a... — read more
Listening to the meeting. Does it sound like he is teeing up layoffs?
I don't think I exaggerate much if I say that this company is in a downward spiral and that there is almost no hope that things will improve here. Do you remember what CF used to be like? I enjoyed working here. Now I'm ashamed to say that I still... — read more

My family member is a medical professional (can't say what their title is) who has been on hold with CareFirst for 1 hour and 25 minutes and were just disconnected. When they called they were "caller number 1 in line". At the 32 minute mark... — read more
Time for a new CEO. Groups will start leaving next without Hopkins in the network.
Have you thought about quiet quitting?
At what point do we stop letting executive ‘leadership’ push us around? They have taken away benefits that effect tenured employees, first the PTO cap and now the pension freeze. They have favored young employees with new and expanded benefit... — read more
BDP back peddling. What happened to WFH? If we have to go back, why did I have to give up my cube. Another reason top talent will exit Carefirst.
Anyone else feel like there has been a sharp decline in the last 3-6 months? Must be the staffing shortages compounding. I can’t get an email back from most areas of the company without 2-3 reminders or a call. Many things are just completely... — read more
I would rather leave with a decent package after 15 years here than stay in a company that is completely different than the one I joined. That would actually be ideal for me. I haven't left yet because I'm wary of starting anew somewhere else, but... — read more
Does this narcissistic sociopath of a CEO own you too? If you want to know what our members think about CareFirst, take a gander at the company FB page. Just complaint after complaint after complaint. It's downright embarrassing. You are failing... — read more

I really hope senior leadership reads and addresses this - it is a real problem impacting the talent retention the company stresses they want to improve. A lot of people have resigned due to geographic restrictions on remote work. This “policy”... — read more
Need I say more? Blah Blah, CareFirst is striving to do XYZ. CareFirst is doing this and that. Filler generic talk that isn't direct or applies to any of us in our day-to-day work. While workers are miserable and struggling, and that never gets... — read more
What grade would you have them?
The success of any company is primarily based on trust. It is very difficult to work where there is no more trust. In our company, the employees don't trust the leadership and the leadership doesn't trust us. Something must be done about it.
Prudential, the largest U.S. insurer, has ended their Cvd-19 vax requirement. It's not like they have data on how effective it is and has been (hint: it hasn't... — read more
Networking? Good communication? Working hard? What do you think?
Every two weeks thousands of employees join the CEO calls. Every two weeks we listen to hours of blather about how wonderful CareFirst is and how everything is so great here. Does ELT understand what is happening in this company? Do they realize they... — read more
Has anyone noticed the disconnect between the 2022 AIP check you received and the 2022 AIP guidelines? The messaging has been that 2022 AIP is based (1) 50% on 2021 Individual Performance and (2) 50% on 2021 Corporate Performance. Let’s walk... — read more
