    Horizon

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Newark, NJ

    Prosflexible with work and family life in my current department

    Conssalary low and not much opportunity to advance professionally

    Advice to Senior ManagementInstead of forcing job title changes that people are not satisfied with (without a choice unless it's to leave the company), should review the actual work that is being performed and recognize/reward high contributors. Terrible HR.

    – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Excellent Company!!

    Accountant (Current Employee) Columbia, SC

    ProsUpper management works hard to ensure employee's are trained well. Ensuring that each employee takes advantage of every opportunity to learn, train, and move up within the company.

    ConsThe pay for non-supervisor positions is low. Increases in pay are minimal, and position changes (upward) are often based on the experience within the company, not a person's total experience.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCompensate employee's for the specific work done, not just for the title of a position. A competitive salary makes for competitive employee's.

    Overall Good Company to Work For

    Training Director (Former Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsNote all Blue Cross Associations work independently. This comment is for Blue Cross Blue Shield of MA only. Blue Cross and Blue Shield of MA is a major carrier of health insurance within the state. Being a major carrier, they have had a big influence in how health insurance is being managed within the state including paying providers on health outcomes rather than health services. This is an innovative company and a leader in the field.

    ConsManagement relies on the same small core people to lead and participate in project teams. If you are new it is impossible to break into a project team. I found mobility within the organization impossible as well.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEngage all your employees in the good work that is going on in the organization. New employees can disengage quickly if they see they are an outsider.
