    I worked at Blue Cross full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    It is a very good company for women to advance, the majority of the wrokforce there is female. The company as a whole does strive to provide a good work-life balance, though it isn't always possible.

    Cons

    In an industry that is heavily involved with politics, some of it does bleed over into the day to day workplace.

    I worked at Blue Cross as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    You are right in the heart of health policy and business. The people are incredibly friendly, and can teach you so much. Incredibly fast paced, you will have a great time.

    Cons

    The only con I could possibly think of is that often times everyone gets SO busy that as an intern, you find yourself a little lost.
