Pros

Fantastic work/life balance, nice people to work with, wonderful wellness programs, lots of onsite opportunities to better onself (onsite fitness center, Weight Watchers, courses).

Cons

2009 and 2010 was a disasater. So many people were laid off that it was difficult to know who did what. Senior management became distant and decided to close their doors rather than interacting with their employees. They took a very lively, wonderful and talented group of employees and turned their lives upside down despite reinsuring everupme for months that layoffs weren't on the table. Making employee reapply for their jobs was degrading and sad. So many talented people are now gone.

Advice to Management

Communicate honestly with your employees and stop hiding behind closed doors.

    Pros

    Since Pat took over, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota has made a lot of positive changes. The company is very dedicated to finding opportunities in the midst of health care reform and finding new, innovative ways to help consumers manage their health.

    Cons

    The company is having a few growing pains as change happens. There's a bit of a struggle between the old guard and the new as everyone adjusts to the new focus.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Change is good. It just takes time for the changes to trickle all the way down.

    Pros

    Flexible work hrs when I worked and friendly employees.

    Cons

    Had to train my counterpart in India and then forced out.

    Advice to Management

    Outsourcing IT is a bad model in the long run. Employees left behind during last re-org is not happy because of increased work load and under prepared work force in India.
