    Pros

    The largest health insurer in SC. You will have plenty of support. If you plan on staying in healthcare it's a great place to put on your resume. As stated in the title you won't be asked for the stars!!! They have a pension plan that vests after five years. 50% matching on 401k up to 6% of gross. Generous (3.5 weeks) of combined sick and vacation time.

    Cons

    Below average pay and you live in the armpit of SC. Good ole boy environment. If you stay you will work in a cube for a decade or longer. Good chance of being pigeon-holed into same tasks without variation. Stay thirsty my friends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Amazing the lack of technical expertise in departments outside of mine. My department rocks!!!

    Pros

    Very good benefits, strong belief on promoting from within, solid training programs, big on community involvement, on-site amenities include fitness centers, cafeterias, and Starbucks, very stable company.

    Cons

    Some areas use front-line management as senior-level staff rather than letting them manage, most areas pay below market rates, too many paper-driven processes considering the company's technological expertise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your front-line managers be managers, and devote resources to automating the paper processes.
