I saw this news last week and I am still LMAO!!!
Best place to work, Haha what a joke. find a job with a company that values you and you have an opportunity to move up. At Anthem it is all who you know and who's a do you kiss.
Are we supposed to believe Axlerod or Mccarthy. I think history has proven this one out. Probably felt threatened by a free thinker.
GloriAntheM is the new company focusing on making Offshoring Great Again.
According to that list I would be better off working at Target or Accenture. That's pretty messed up!
Early in my career, at another company, I saw a woman have her first baby and negotiate a part time work schedule. The company changed their minds and abruptly let her go without even being able to go back to her desk for her purse.and coat. That company won the award for best workplace for women that year from Working Woman magazine. So I laugh every time I hear of awards like that and assume the winner is actually the worst at whatever the award is.
Wow - Talk about BAD DATA (even at #71)! LOL
It’s like an internal audit. Pick the best samples for review. Simple.
Anthem's ranking was 71st, so it wasn't like they are anywhere near the top of the list of the 100 companies listed. Plus, employees know their network ids are linked to those company employee surveys even if the responses are summarized in the report back to Anthem, and many are afraid to respond with anything other than high ranking responses. That skews the stats of real employee satisfaction at the company. And those still working at Anthem know what the real employee satisfaction level is in the US these days, and it is not high....
You cannot trust media and you cannot trust what you see or read on the internet anymore. Just have to weed through and use common sense. I personally do not believe liberal and conservative outlets anymore. I seldom trust institutions to do the right thing. Corruption is everywhere. And at Anthem you know they are just polishing the surface to check boxes. Employees are not their greatest asset. Money is. And it shows.
Anthem places resources into capturing and reporting for recognition.
Thinking of employers throughout US not just healthcare, not everyone has benefits. And even though covered under a medical release, at some places if you miss too much work you will be laid off the next time company is downsizing any staff. And by too much work, I mean more than two weeks but less than eight. That is the environment within many manufacturing companies.
That's a really good question. For several years this has bugged me. Is it just my department that is horrible and the rest of the company is pretty good? Or is it that there some sort of bias/influence on those numbers? Without any hesitation, I can say most every one of my colleagues are stressed over the persistent potential of off-shoring our jobs. The morale is very low. I see these emails about "Best place to work", and all I can think of is that it is fake news and propaganda.
