I have been working at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Company rewards for a well done job in tangible ways including generous incentive and bonus
Benefits are top notch, including PTO, health insurance, cafeteria, and other perks
Company is driven to serve the member
Beautiful landscape
Great salary

Cons

You always have more work than you could even hope to complete
Processes are often cumbersome and exalted above true service
Innovation is a current "value" but in reality it is stifled by management
Highly sedentary job - I have never sat so much in a cubicle in any job. They tout a healthy lifestyle, but few us at work are even close.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Understand that a demanding job is satisfying if it allows you to be creative and contribute to change instead of just being permitted to offer suggestions. Empower us to actually make decisions and support us when we try something and it isn't perfect.

I realize the company is getting bigger but its also much more complex. It is difficult to get anything meaningful done without layers of paperwork and committee's
