I worked at Blue Cross (MI)

Pros

Exposure to complex health insurance industry. Good learning opportunity. Opportunity to learn about various parts of the company from operations to underwriting. Good opportunities for career advancement since a large number of employees will be retiring in the near future. People are enjoyable to work with.

Cons

It's very political. A lot of people have been there their whole careers (worked their way up the ranks). Knowledge transfer from old to young is needs improvement. Can be difficult to work across divisions since the company was structured in silos for so long. Can be frustrating to implement ideas due to the political nature of the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Respond more quickly (and proactively) to increased presence of competitors.

    The company's committment to our subscribers/customers. BCBSM does provide worldclass customer service. Additional the company is committed to the communityh.

    Cons

    While senior management is trying to change this; there favoritism and "who" you know to get a job and keep are still very high in this company. Sometime it is still a "good ole boy' club".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While reducing the number of staff and making cuts - leader should be looking at the number of ineffective leaders that are in place within the company.
