In my experience at Wellmark the people were the best part. The software was beyond end of life, and unpatchable, so that was difficult, the project work included a lot of bureaucracy which slowed things down quite a bit but still ensured that when they would be redone, they would be done correctly. Management would be difficult to describe because it changed so often. The hardest part about my job was the constant accusations being thrown at our team, made for quite the defensive culture, when in reality we were stuck with a outdated software solution that we didn't design and was not documented, but still needed to support. That is what I believe brought us all together on one common ground. That is why I say the most enjoyable part of the job was being surrounded by a team that tried to work together despite the odds.
