Pros

The salary and benefits were okay.

Cons

Too much polictics and not enough care for their employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You should offer growth for all employees with or without college degrees. Promotion should be based on years of experiences and good fit within. Look to should interest in their employees and less favoritisms.

    I have been working at Blue Shield Of California

    Pros

    They have lots of money in the bank, it would take years to shut this company down, things are more stable as a result than other companies. If you can tolerate the BS, it pays the bills.

    Cons

    SVP's are not aligned - there is chaos at the top, many SVP's openly dislike their peers, makes life miserable for those beneath, not a good time to sign up with this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Analysis paralysis is killing this company - stop asking for multiple iterations of power point presentations, and make some decisions.

    I have been working at Blue Shield Of California

    Pros

    I enjoy working with my coworkers and the company does have pretty decent medical benefits even if it is expensive for the employees.

    Cons

    antiquated philosphies and handling of employees work/family life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    join the 21st century. More an more medical insurance companies are going towards smaller real estate and working from home for employees as a big incentive to get good people to stick around and yes, they are just as effective if not better than working in a busy, noisy distracting atmosphere.
