    I have been working at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    BCBSMN has some of the most dedicated, hardworking individuals that I have ever experience working with. It is a pleasure to be amongst professionals with such strong work ethic.

    Cons

    Sometimes a person can get lost in a sea of people. This holds true for BCBSMN. One has to learn to make herself stand out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your busy. Don't let that get in the way of learning as much as you can about the people that work under you.

    I worked at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The benefits are very good compared to most large corporations, they offer exended learning classes (xcel, interview skills, etc), as well as PTO, education stipend, great health insurance (obviously), and wellness packages. The culture is very engaging and relaxed.

    Cons

    Can be stuck in the older generation and not easy to adapt to a lot of change quickly. Its hard to move up in a division because people tend to stay.

    I have been working at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Very pragmatic and results oriented teams, and ethical respectful leadership.
    Office politicians aren't tolerated and don't last long.
    Working here imparts a strong sense of doing meaningful and valuable work for your community.

    Cons

    Money for projects is very tight, and most IT projects are on hold because nearly all IT staff are working on healthcare exchange related projects.
    Very few perks - no free coffee.
    No stock options, because there is no stock. Company is a non-profit owned by the state of Minnesota.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your focus on positive culture and work/life balance are very much appreciated by your employees. Keep up the good work.
