    I worked at Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    great benefits. generous time off and training opportunities. Tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    Very political envioronment. Many employees are resistant to change. Years of service seem to mean more than skillset when it comes to promotion and pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Conduct more HR functions in-house. Hire additional HR staff to recruit younger workers. Promote based on work ethic and performance, not on time served.

    I worked at Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company has great opportunities for those who are willing to work very hard to move forward in their careers.

    Cons

    No matter how long, hard or dedicated you were for the company you will always be considered a number never forget that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are only as good as the people that work for you. Truly invest in listening to your employees and not putting on the act of pretending to care. You will be amazed at how much change you will see in the work you get back.

    I worked at Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits. A liberal amount of PTO and paid vacations. You simply have to plan ahead. A wise person won't use all of their PTO as soon as they get it.

    Cons

    You stay busy but that is what you are supposed to do in a professional environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sr. Management does have the knack of micro-managing and it trickles down from the top.

    I have been working at Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The pros of this job are definitely the benefits and experience you gain within the Blues system. Working for BCBSA if like working at "corporate" for any other nationwide company. The benefits for tenure employees is wonderful. After 5 years, the rewards of service become very (mutually) beneficial.

    Cons

    Some (not all) of the management in place are there because of their subject knowledge versus their actual ability to "manage". Unfortunately, I am in a position with a manager who has no leadership or people management skills, which is why I (even after many years of service) am looking for other opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Place management on their ability to manage and develop staff. Investing in your staff from a leadership perspective is just as important as investing in them from a knowledge perspective. Development can only happen if managers are able to develop employees.
