I have been working at Blue Cross

Pros

Great benefits. Small IT for a large brand name company

Cons

Highly political as you move up the ladder

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You are too political and there is way too much red tape that interferes with creativity.

    I worked at Blue Cross

    Pros

    1. Very professional staff working since wanted to live in Hawaii.
    2. given considerable independence to develop systems and manage projects. My title didn't match my work which was between Senior Business Analyst and IT Systems Analyst and often project manager.

    Cons

    1. Very bureaucratic as large company.
    2. Too much of major systems outsourced which reduced control possibilities by the company.
    3. Too much use of inexpensive, although competent, technical staff from India.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Listen more to staff. Too much panic decisions.

    Pros

    The benefits are great if you're an employee. The people are great to work with. Standard processes have already been created.

    Cons

    Contractors are treated like second class citizens. It's like you're always walking on glass around them. You always have to becareful of what you say and do. One wrong move and you will be fired!The management talent level is sub-standard. They make sure your talent is not exposed to other management. They want followers not leaders. Thinking outside the box and going above and beyond is not allowed. They will work you to the ground. Micro managment is rapant throughout the company

    In essence, terrible place to work if you're a contractor. Management is heartless. If you are let go, your last day will be on the same day. Blue Cross does not care about you!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow people to have a voice. BCBS should be more receptive to innovation and ideas. Ideas are often disregarded by the management filters. You should allow constructive criticism.
