    I have been working at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (More than a year)

    Pros

    HCSC the parent company is pretty well respected and the blue cross and blue shield logo also carry a lot of weight in the industry

    Cons

    Massive need of hierarchy restructuring. The managers from what I have seen are often times working their own book of business so they don't really manage. I come from an operations background so maybe I am biased but this company is in need of people managers in a bad way.

    Advice to Management

    Manage your people to manage your business.

    I have been working at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good 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.

    Cons

    Very 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 Management

    Pay 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.

    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

    I'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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Embrace 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.
