    I have been working at Blue Shield Of California full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    In the department I work in, having a peen will get you far, the career advancement knows no limits. Infact, the more incompetent you are, if you like the sound of your own voice talking, the better you can pass the buck, the more swiftly you can descope your work; the higher up the position you can hope to achieve. It's ok if you don't know details, what matters is that you can spin. Spin it and soar among the stars--don't worry some worthless minion will carry out the work.

    Cons

    Working overtime is expected, not appreciated.
    Worst experience of office politics & good ole boys club (the only company worst them them in my experience, was sued for countless sexual harassment charges).
    Innovation is more of an idea, not a goal to really strive towards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Highly recommend getting some...mgmt :) I constantly hear from people who have been @ BSC 10,15,20,25,30yrs justifying it is as dysfunctional as other companies. I'd disagree having worked in the real world, sure everyone is a little dysfunctional. But BSC's so called "senior mgmt" are former lower level workers that grew up from the trenches. They don't know anything but their dysfunctional ways, lack of ideas, lack of change.

    Sure making your way up from the bottom provides an illusion of career advancement, but if you look closely at the "type" of person who survived that climb-- I assure you they are no one you would want to model yourself after. If the entire Director level was wiped out-- the company might have a chance. There are lots of people in management here, but zero leaders.
