    Great company for laid back work load and opportunity to learn and grow.

    Applications Developer Analyst (Current Employee) Richardson, TX

    ProsGood management support. Relaxed work environment. Very professional and diverse employees with amazing training and learning opportunities and resources. Good benefits for higher education pursuing employees as they provide education assistance and excellent reference online materials.

    ConsVery slow promotion and low pay rate. Its better to get experience somewhere else, then apply and bargain for a good starting salary rather than waiting for raise and annual salary increase. So apparently new fresh graduates getting in will end up working in extreme low salary than comparable market companies possibly causing tendency to find jobs elsewhere.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay for IT professionals better or at least competitive as compared to other companies in market. Presumably targeting a low pay rate doesn't ultimately morally boost the employees to stay within the company for a long time.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Strict but fair

    Customer Advocate (Former Employee)

    ProsDecent pay and lots of opportunities for overtime. Very good at training you and preparing you as much as possible.

    ConsUpper management makes a lot of changes for the "good of the company" without much regard to the employees.

    One of the best jobs for Abilene

    Quality Auditor (Current Employee) Abilene, TX

    ProsGreat flexiblity with your work schedule, and good performance can lead to the oppurtunity to work from home. The benefits are excellent, medical, dental, vision, 401(k), pension, 18+ days of paid time off plus holidays, and tutiton assistance of up to $5400 a year. The company puts a lot of money into training so they give you as many resources as they can to help you suceed. I haven't heard of any non-salaried employees being laid off.

    ConsI'm not going to lie, the work is boring and very tedious, but you are well compensated for it. Salary and management positions do not come open often in the Abilene location, so the competetion is high for a promotion in that area. If you put in the time and effort you can easily move into some higher paying hourly positions though. Also, there is a lot of promotion oppurtunity if you are willing to move to another location. There can be quite a bit of required overtime in peak months.

    BCBS of TX Job experience

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat Benefits and pension plan, competetive salary, good team atmosphere.
    Employee bonuses given yearly.

    ConsWork is very redundant, excessive time spent on phone with customers, environment is in production mode which is somewhat restrictive.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagers are ok, some probably required more training, as sometimes staff had to problem solve among themselves. Managers also appeared to be overworked and overwhelmed most of the time.

    Working for BCBSTX

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Richardson, TX

    ProsGood benefits; respectful treatment by management. Family atmosphere, many people from same families work for company. Low turnover.

    ConsInstability of healthcare industry, nowadays! Sluggish, behind the times on their computer systems, slow to change, lots of inertia and bureaucracy.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmbrace the new healthcare laws and get out in front! Spin off some of your components instead of centralizing...too much overlap and territory fighting going on.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
