I worked at Blue Cross (MI) as a contractor for less than a year

Pros

I can't think of any for BCBSMI, although BCN seemed cool.

Cons

At last in the IT organization, BCBSM I is a very divisive organization and a fairly toxic place to work. It is a very politically charged atmosphere where people seem far more interested in building and protecting fiefdoms that in working to improve the organization. I was thoroughly unimpressed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Clean house.

    I have been working at Blue Cross (MI) full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The benefits are very good: health care, tuition reimbursement, 401K.

    Cons

    This is the most top heavy company I've ever seen. There are so many layers of VPs and Directors and they just attend meetings all day long. Turnover among the ground level workers is very high. They create positions to promote people and some managers/supervisors/team leads have two employees beneath them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut some layers, add some workers. You'll get a lot more work done for your money.

    I have been working at Blue Cross (MI)

    Pros

    Decent salary, good benefits, the people are very friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    You tend to get pigeonholed, advancement is a mystery, too many leaders in a project, not enough people to do the actual work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people for quality, not quantity.
