Customer Advocate Team

Audio Visual Intern (Current Employee)
Detroit, MI

I have been working at Blue Cross (MI) full-time for less than a year

ProsThey are very good at making everyone feel like they are a part of the team regardless of your position. Great hours, nice facilities, professional environment, good pay.

ConsBecause they are such a big organization they are a bit behind times and they are slow to make any real changes that would benefit the working environment.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep being all inclusive with your staff. It really makes people feel like they are worth something.

Hands down, the best company that I have ever worked for!

Health Care Analyst (Current Employee)

I have been working at Blue Cross (MI) full-time for less than a year

ProsBenefits are amazing, especially if you are willing to live a healthy lifestyle. The only thing that can even rival the healthcare benefits would be military Tricare. Training has been more than adequate for everything that I have encountered thus far. I have been provided everything that I needed to complete my job. I am able to work 40% from home and this flexibility in my schedule is AMAZING and what made me initially choose this job over another healthcare company offer. My manager is fantastic. My team provides a great mix of personalities and constant resource for help if I ever need it. I seriously love my job. I love going to work each day. I am passionate about what I am doing and I get paid well to do it. Never plan on leaving BCBSM!

ConsThe only negative that I have witnessed thus far relates to employees that whine about how tough work is. Please, don't take for granted how great you have it. I have worked in multiple professional positions and nothing has rivaled this company.

Advice to Senior ManagementI have heard many complaints about things being too top heavy. I have not experienced anything that made me feel that this is impacting me.

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