Worst job I've had in my IT career

I have been working at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota

Pros

Work/Life balance can be pretty good if you're in the right areas. Lots of extra activities for employees to get involved in.

Cons

Unfortunately my experience with them was one of the most demoralizing throughout my fifteen year career in IT. On-boarding of new employees is horrid. Management seems to hide from their group a lot and promote dishonesty.

Big corporate environment with TONS of busy, but needless tasks asked of you. i.e. run specific reports or corrections to reports that are never used for anything. Every area likes to point fingers and hide behind the "process" rather than try to get things done. Very cloudy processes that rely more on creating more work than actually creating solutions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Nothing, because they won't listen. They are in they're own world.

    I have been working at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota

    Pros

    Long time provider in the field of health care insurance, responsive to the expectations and requirements of accrediting bodies, active and supportive of employees engaged in community service outside the office, provides means and resources for maintaining good health and exercise during the work day, maintains high standards for clinical expertise within the areas of case management and utilization review, competitive salary ranges.

    Cons

    Slow to implement changes in business processes and to provide resources needed to compete with other national health care companies. Inadequate technology/systems and tends to upgrade in stages rather than implementing when able to provide the complete product. Upper managment out of touch with daily operations and declining morale & doesn't seem to care. Departmental and divisional silos that negatively impacts effective communication about commonly shared information and tasks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come out among the people and be willing to learn about the real company and its needs .
