great environment if you can be flexible and enjoy health insurance industry

Program Manager (Current Employee)
Woodland Hills, CA

I have been working at Blue Shield Of California full-time for more than 5 years

Pros- great people who are smart, friendly and (mostly) collaborative, most are up front so don't really see back-stabbing
- good benefits including a pension on top of 401K
- dynamic new leaders coming in
- some teams allow working from home and this flexibility can be a big help with work/life balance

Cons- not a lot of mentoring, requires your personal initiative
- culture varies greatly across the state, make sure you get on a good team
- huge amount of change going on with transition to new CEO, will take some time to settle down
- slow to adopt technology (hardware, software and social media)

Advice to Senior Management- think more thoroughly about career paths, it seems like there needs to be more options of job families etc
- one of the value is being agile but it will take training people to be more courageous risk takers
- upgrade the technology faster, now and ongoing!! why wait to bring in Office 2007 in 2013??

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
