    I have been working at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great leadership, mentors that want to see you succeed and grow within company, challenging projects, flexible hours, phenomenal benefits, employee groups that make it easy to network internally, fitness classes on site (and fitness reimbursement for gym memberships), strong brand name, pride in the work we do - both to support local communities and to improve health care in Michigan

    Cons

    As with any big corporation, you'll have to deal with some red tape and office politics. I also think the salaries are often lower than market value for the work being done.

    Advice to Management

    Consider creating rotational programs for some of the departments that are looking to attract young talent. Also might want to give a "total compensation" overview to employees, so we see the total package. I'm guessing we make up for lower salaries through our strong benefit package. If you helped us see that, we'd appreciate it more.

    Pros

    Great people, engaged in interesting, noble work and they too have the resources, knowledge and skills to contribute to the success of the business. Compensation and total rewards are very competitive, career mobility within the organization is unmatched anywhere in Michigan.

    Cons

    There are a lot of layers, and a few 500 lb Gorillas. Some of the Gorillas are ineffective employees, and none of the layers are willing to confront them.

    Advice to Management

    See gorillas, above.
