    I have been working at Premera Blue Cross full-time

    Pros

    Does the right thing for their members, associates and providers
    Wants to improve their project management processes
    Promotes Lean methodologies

    Cons

    PMO processes are very young, needs a lot of maturation
    Not a lot of understanding what a PM does
    Very Management heavy, could stand to have better understanding of what is happening on the floor

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a better understanding of what is happening on the floor, get out and talk to associates more, connect more - don't just encourage Lean at the manager level, get directors, VPs, SVPs and everyone else involved, daily

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Premera Blue Cross.

    Interview Details

    - Old fashioned
    - Incompetent managers (be careful who you are interviewing with), if you realize that they don't know what they talk about or their answers to your questions are vague, then stay away from that position
    - Job description didn't match the real day-to-day tasks
    - Most of their positions are way higher set than the usual real world out there (e.g. a Premera manager wouldn't get far with their knowledge and experience if they would apply to a top 100 company)
    - Add a higher seniority level to your last position and that's what you should apply for at Premera
