No opinion of CEO

I worked at Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Very friendly atmosphere, you can speak to Executive Directors since they are accessible, unless they are very busy with meetings. Great place for people with experience, not good if you are an intern and working in a department that necessitate high level education

Cons

Meeting-heavy, everything must be done in consensus. In my internship, I didn't get to learn the nitty-gritty of business performance. Other interns had far more work to do than me and got to learn more.

Advice to Management

Make your internship more comprehensive

    A healthcare company far more interested in profits and market share than in healthcare and wellness.

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    An industry leader with a caring and diverse workforce.

    Cons

    Poorly trained, entrenched management more interested in riding out their careers than developing their business.

    Advice to Management

    High brand recognition does not equal high brand admiration. BCBSA would like to think it is Apple or Google. Actually, it's Comcast or ExxonMobil. Or, worse, it's PanAm or TWA.

    Pros

    Work with various vendors. Learning how healthcare works.

    Cons

    Too many people with inflated job titles who are not experts in their field. Too conservative. IT is a decade behind.

    Advice to Management

    Promote on merit not on exposure.
