    I worked at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    benefits, salary, industry leader, ability to contribute.

    Cons

    silos-needs to continue improving on communication within divisions & overall. System changes need to be more of a priority--members benefits and providers ability to comply with billing etc requires BCBSM to adjudicate benefits and process claims & payments correctly the 1st time in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Directors & above need to meet & connect more with below manager staff to see what really goes on.

    Pros

    Its a great environment to work, once you get in and do your job right you will remain there for ever, unless the job is outsourced. If your manager is good, can work from home at times.

    Cons

    You need to clean your own table space

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not look at other managers team on how they chit chat or how they got work from home approval.
