    The internship was a great stepping stone, but BCBS was a large, slow moving insurance dinosaur

    I worked at Blue Cross as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Intense job security. I saw a bunch of poorly performing employees who were allowed to retain their positions for years. They seem to sincerely care about the health and happiness of their employees. Some leadership seemed bright and company is definitely trying to adapt to the new market. The company is dominant and without any real competitors.

    Cons

    As a result of BCBS's dominance they have not had to adapt in years and it is a therefore very large dinosaur of the company with outdated technology and has a moderate level of slow thinking low level employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adapt the new market and find a better way to get everyone on board than quarterly propaganda like meetings in which you say functionally nothing about the company. Listen to middle managers and find a way to eliminate the bureaucratic nature of the company. You will lose good ideas across all levels due to the old, hierarchical structure that the company works on.

    Life changing and not in a good way.

    I worked at Blue Cross

    Pros

    The hours was flexible. They offered tuition reimbursement and encourage promoting from within.

    Cons

    They expected more and more from employees as time went on. The environment was infectious in a bad way. There was a lot of negative energy and pressure to always be at work; sometimes working six or more days straight. The amount of work you put out took precedence over the quality of work even if it was done incorrectly. It was all about numbers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to those below you. They are the backbone of the company and appreciate them.
