    Pros

    I joined a team of roughly 10 and learned from each of them throughout my summer internship. The intern program was extremely helpful in getting aquatinted with the company and meeting other interns along the way. I was thoroughly impressed with the level of involvement upper management played in seeing the internship program through and making it a great learning experience.

    Cons

    The campus was so large I only got to know those working on the same level of me in the one building out of five.

    Personal growth opportunitites are amazing - you are in charge of your career and BCBSMN supports life-long learning. The Blue U (University) offers many free trainings.

    There are five buildings in Eagan and it bites to go to meetings in those other buildings (especially in the winter) and lose your parking space.

    Love the transparency of the Strategic Plan and how visible everyone's goals are and how they fit into the plan. Makes us feel like our job has an impact in the organization
