    Pros

    pay and benefits are good

    Cons

    No work-life balance, the environment is extremely political, diversity is talked about but not practiced (complaints to outside organizations are common), senior leadership leaves a lot to be desired (they manage by intimidation and fear)

    Pros

    Great benefits, including pension plan (which is portable), matching 401k, generous short-term and long-term disability, generous life-insurance, dental, vision, medical benefits and time off. Market share is still good and financial performance is great considering the economic climate in Michigan.

    Cons

    Changes take a long time. Innovative projects take a back seat due to state and federal mandates and Blue Cross Association mandates. Moving projects forward involves navigating through a political climate. Union employees can make life miserable by filing unwarranted grievances which take an inordinate amount of management time and then is dismissed due to lack of merit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Although BCBSM has made great strides in removing ineffective employees, there is still a long way to go.
