I left this company before the pandemic but I am still in contact with some of my former colleagues who tell me that the situation at Anthem is getting worse. Honestly, at one point I even regretted moving to a new company, since I did not leave it because of a bad situation, but for private reasons, because I changed my place of residence so it was no longer convenient for me to work at Anthem. I wonder if people exaggerate when they say that the atmosphere in the company has become worse than ever?

If anything, the posts here understate the degree to which Anthem has disintegrated and failed its workers. It's disheartening and pathetic.
Sad to say, the majority of the posts on this site are not exaggerations. Morale is extremely low. Middle management is instructed not to share any information. Work environment is very stressful and toxic. And they are stupid enough to think their Culture topics are going to be a band aid for all of it .
Well it is a paycheck week, so no layoffs on Thursday. The fish died a long time ago and the cheese is beyond rotten. Scales stolen on work/life balance.
IMO the toxic culture at Anthem is at an all time high. Anthem is very top heavy, and it seems like they want to offshore the laborers at every opportunity they get. Meanwhile the morale is horrible because of job uncertainty. It seems like G & G are chasing ever fad mentioned in their trade journals with hopes of being showcased in an article. They have completely lost the trust of their hard workers. But they don't care, because they believe that their workforce can easily be replaced by cheaper offshore labor. I truly hate this toxic environment, but I just hang in for the paycheck, knowing the eventuality that they will offshore my job at any time.
Everything here is spot on. Some out of anger but all true. Constant re–orgs. Culture talk is b.s. more VPs are getting hired and more directors are being let go. People who don’t know the business are hired.
They need to get over themselves. They’re not helping the health of humanity. It’s freaking health insurance e. They’re not curing cancer. If they want to really help people – cut all the fat at the top. Stop the leaders from making millions year after year and lower the rates for members. Imagine the savings to members of all the nonsense was gone. All the wasted millions to useless digital programs, pointless marketing initiatives and research from agencies that have no ROI.
Left before pandemic you say. Theres not much difference. Anyone at Anthem the last few years knows there is no exaggeration here. Layoffs, constant organizational changes, Former IT CIO mess. I have a hard time believing someone posted this seriously or if you are a current higher up.
