Pros

great coworkers in general, decent hours flexible schedule with arrival anywhere between 6-9 am We now have our own social network

Cons

Silos continue in 4 years I've been here despite many different experiments to change culture Revolving doors of senior management No advancement opportunities Every lead I've seen either steps down due to stress, or is driven out Supervisor plays favorites Daily process changes frequently, depending on whim of supervisor Changes in process shared with select employees only

Advice to Management

I don't believe this company is capable of changing. Accept it or move on

    All the great partnerships and relationships that other companies that provide discounts and specials for employees of Blue Shield of California

    Cons

    Sometimes there is a break in communication between the employees and the upper management. But its more of a delay so to speak.

    Pros

    8-5pm work days and nice co-workers.

    Cons

    Many departments operate firedrill by firedrill Upper management micromanages and VPs end up being managers Many upper managers lack trust in employees Upper management is full of poorly performing leaders 80's management style where everyone should be in the office Sick employees come into the office because sick time is combined with vacation time and working from home is not available to many IT organization is immature and in some ways disfunctional Failure to prioritize projects and set realistic goals High employee turnover Employee morale is extremely low

    Advice to Management

    Bring in expert outside leadership and especially for IT. Drive culture change from the top down rather than expect your managers to do it. Stop the bleeding with so many firedrills, scope projects realistically, drastically cut the number of projects to increase their changes of success, find a strong CIO to report to the CEO instead of the CFO, stop relying so much on temporary consultants, etc.
