Disturbingly Incompetent

Application Development Intern (Former Employee) Detroit, MI

ProsFlex-time, a few good people, the high-rise vantage point

ConsThis is one of the most dysfunctional organizations I've ever encountered. Its dismal claim metrics consistently place it in the 20th percentile of all plans in the Blue Cross Blue Shield network, and the reason for its horrible performance is reflected in the general incompetency of its employees. Leadership is absolutely clueless -- a great contingency of managers have zero training in project management and do not understand the principles of successful team building. The employees under them are hardly any better; if you are even modestly intelligent, your days will be filled with hand-holding and nurturing of the dumb and slow. If you are in fact good at what you do, expect to be a constant anchor for the flailing and drowning (buoy them long enough, and watch the bad swimmers get seamlessly promoted for their good golf swing and/or ability to spread gossip). Also, the entire employee base is sickly-looking and overweight -- departments are constantly engaged in weight-watcher small-talk and unofficial weight-loss tournaments. This company is very disturbing.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf this was a public company, you all would have been fired a long time ago.
