I have been working at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

The company is focused on helping its customers in NC improve their health, and pay for care when it is needed - neighbor helping neighbor. There are many opportunities to work on a variety of things. The benefits are great. There is a lot of change happening, which offers some ground-floor type options. Hard work with good results is rewarded.

Cons

Large companies have issues related to size. Health Care Reform is causing lots of changes, and there is a lot going on at this point.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat job applicants with as much respect and courtesy as our customers.

    Former Employee - Senior Project Portfolio Analyst in Chapel Hill, NC

    I worked at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    - BIG company benefits
    - Blue University (THE #1 benefit of the company - promotes continuous education and training)
    - Worked with some amazingly talented people and made lifelong friends
    - Strong PM maturity model
    - Toastmasters club

    Cons

    - I worked for the company 9 years and went through 7 different reorgs
    - EXTREMELY political environment (like swimming in shark infested waters)
    - Middle managers look out for themselves instead of their teams
    - IT (a circus)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Learn to LISTEN
    - Be HONEST (people know when you're lying)
    - Staff high priority projects early so you don't expect people to perform miracles in the 11th hour
    - Help team members reach their career goals
