    Realize you don't have all the answers and sometimes your staff might know more than you. Don't jump to conclusions about individuals without asking them about their thoughts.

    I have been working at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota

    Pros

    The workforce in engaged in what they do. Management is more involved in all levels of the company. The leadership team is the best that I have worked for. The corporate culture is more focused with clearly defined goals. We have seen an increase in communication on all levels.

    Cons

    The past years have seen outsourcing and layoffs. Staffing adjustments have meant that everyone works a little harder and there are concerns about job security… but no more than at any other job. The staffing levels seem to be getting where they should have been all along. Departments do not always work well together at times and there is a lack of collaberation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be added focus on the departments working together and sharing information. Each department seems to be on their own island at times and there is little collaberation. Other than that, keep doing what you are doing. The last two years have been scary, but fun at the same time.
