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.

    I have been working at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota

    Pros

    They used to really focus on customer service and on providing great training. There was some room for advancement.

    Cons

    Bottom line, they are willing to sacrifice employees and customer satisfaction to keep in the black. It'll work for a while, but the economy is going to rebound eventually, and then they'll be short employees and customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Customer service has long term payoff. Don't cut corners here.
