    Pros

    Wonderful place to work. Team members are like family and organization really wants the very best for its employee.

    Cons

    None that I can think of right now. Maybe it does exist but I do not have any downside to write about now.

    Pros

    Work/life balance. Nothing else could be a pro here.

    Cons

    Everything Else. Needed to get out of here to keep some level of sanity. Do not work here if you ever get the chance. Management is discriminatory and will only grind you down rather than let you grow.

    Advice to Management

    Create an objective goal rather than being discriminatory. There is a big need for an overhaul of management in the Analytics department

    Pros

    Great Benefits, Workout Facility , Awesome Credit union and Nice building

    Cons

    Poor Management, Overtime during week and Saturdays , While on maturity leave my job was filed one week before I was to return after 15 years of service. When I reported concerns I was told I was being malicious. In a department meeting management told everyone " if you don't like your job then find a new one" horrible experience

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees concerns . Be more loyal to those who put in hard work everyday.

    Great people and facilities. Need better planning, moving too fast to be truly effective.

    Pros

    Great place to work. Richardson location has cafeteria and credit union on sight making it covenant for the employees. There is also an on sight work out facility as well as a running track near the building.

    Cons

    The healthcare industry is constantly changing with new rules and regulations and the companies need to make their changes to remain in compliance. Definitely a company of who you know to get anything done. If they don't like you, I have seen them ignore you/your request.

    Advice to Management

    Better planning of time and resources needs to happen to make these annual transitions smoother. Stop procrastinating and waiting to the last minute causing everything to be a fire drill. Leave the politics out of the office and do the right thing.

    Pros

    - Great work - life balance
    - My boss is amazing, we really have a relationship
    - I get to touch different projects instead of being just stuck on one project

    Cons

    BCBS doesn't pay at a top tier level when considering how much work you can be responsible for. This is the only flaw that is very noticeable. The other flaw is the culture ... it's pretty thick, however, changes have been underway since the new Affordable Care Act has come into play.

    Advice to Management

    - accept and try some new ideas, it's time to change the culture
    - pay employees their market value

    Pros

    Opportunity for those who "know someone", a lot of experienced people to have as mentors, comfortable working campus, very diverse cultures. Still a place where an entire career can be spent.

    Cons

    Very competitive employees, a lot of nepotism, too many relatives working at the company. There is some uncomfortable racial element within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Open the doors to new people, not so much nepotism.
