I have been working at Blue Shield Of California

Pros

- full of people across departments who have worked and invested in the company.
- they are incredibly helpful and resourceful

Cons

- my department used to be full of people who loved their jobs, their contribution and their teams. Has been replaced by a smaller subset of the original department from 4 years ago who survived and are incredibly stressed.
- lacks strong leadership in regards to making decisions. busy bees are expected to do all the work regardless of resources or time.
- no clear direction or path to fulfilling our mission to provide affordable healthcare. Not for profit status is a joke.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

-There are "lifers" within the organization who should be recognized and rewarded. I am not one of them. I'm relatively new, but I have been discouraged with how a lot of the employees say "BSC used to be a great place to work".
- Set priorities and show leadership by taking responsibility of decisions and look out for your employees.

    Pros

    They offer a decent amount of paid days of and holidays, and have competitive pay.

    There is a complete lack of communication between business units and they are horrible at documenting business processes. They also have no problem working you to the bone without much recognition.
