I have been working at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas

Pros

Very financially stable, non-investor owned, family-oriented, a leader in health care insurance innovations, generous benefits. The pay depends on the area.

Cons

One is the massive bureaucracy which really gets in the way of the speed of business. The other is it is painfully obvious that people who work in the Chicago HQ receive preferential treatment regarding promotions. Can be hard on morale in the 3 other Blues. Nobody dares to bring it up out of fear of sounding "negative."

    I worked at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas

    Pros

    Great Benefits and pension plan, competetive salary, good team atmosphere.
    Employee bonuses given yearly.

    Cons

    Work is very redundant, excessive time spent on phone with customers, environment is in production mode which is somewhat restrictive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers are ok, some probably required more training, as sometimes staff had to problem solve among themselves. Managers also appeared to be overworked and overwhelmed most of the time.

    Great people and facilities. Need better planning, moving too fast to be truly effective.

    I worked at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas full-time

    Pros

    Great place to work. Richardson location has cafeteria and credit union on sight making it covenant for the employees. There is also an on sight work out facility as well as a running track near the building.

    Cons

    The healthcare industry is constantly changing with new rules and regulations and the companies need to make their changes to remain in compliance. Definitely a company of who you know to get anything done. If they don't like you, I have seen them ignore you/your request.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better planning of time and resources needs to happen to make these annual transitions smoother. Stop procrastinating and waiting to the last minute causing everything to be a fire drill. Leave the politics out of the office and do the right thing.
