I worked at Blue Cross

Pros

BlueCross was a great place to work, as well as a wonderful place to advance and grow. The managers were understanding and nurturing.

Cons

One of the managers was overbearing and discriminatory; however, he never seemed to get into trouble or get written up. That is the reason I quit.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your employees as they are your bread and butter. Managers are not always right. Take seriously your employees complaints.

    I worked at Blue Cross

    Pros

    Good benefits, salary, and work-life balance; Start out with 20 days of PTO per year and a great insurance package, plus ten annual company holidays

    Cons

    Incompetent senior management, resistant to change, full of soon-to-be-retirees, even when research and recommendations point one way, senior management will do whatever they want and will try to retroactively change research results to confirm their desired direction

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's 2010, not 1993, get with the program! Leadership would be well-served to listen to younger employees and embrace technology.

    I have been working at Blue Cross

    Pros

    Salary very good. Not one complaint since I got here.
    Health insurance good (don't pick the company choice though; go PPO)
    PTO comparable to other places
    Flex time fine
    Telecommuting fine
    I like what I do and for the most part, my coworkers

    Cons

    Majority of sr. management has been here over 20 years and they are deaf to change. The company needs an overhaul of anyone who is a VP and been here over 10 years.
    We are so far behind in technology, thinking, output.
    Huge waste of money always happening. Most national programs fail.
    Too much red tape to get things approved.
    More politics than Washington. If you're a favorite, then you're in. If you're good but unrecognized, forget it. You'll never move up. We have mid level people here for over 13 years and they've never been promoted to sr. level.
    High turnover in our division. Gee, I wonder why.
    They promote the wrong people as managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For those who've been there over 15 years, especially sr. management, please leave. You're ruining the company.

    Disapproves of CEO
