I have been working at BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee

Pros

Localized management- AKA your direct supervisor- is pretty good. Great benefits. The gym on campus is really great- as is the rest of the actual physical workplace.

Cons

Upper management isn't really seen often, if at all. It's hard to advance- lower-end workers that do a good job are thought of as indispensable for their specific job and they don't move up much.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Upper-level guys: go out and talk to your workers. Seriously. It helps a lot when managers and VPs stroll the floor

    Pros

    Benefits, pay, covered parking, very compassionate lower level employees

    Cons

    Too many managers and above being allowed to stretch the idea of "at managers discretion".. the company has become all about the bottom line and not enough about the customer and employees.. they are not realizing they need both to make the money come in.. and they need to treat sick people like human beings not as something to push out of the way as quickly as possible.. I used to be a proud employee of what I thought was a great company but not any more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to your employees.. take some interest in them... don't treat them as though they are expendable and unnecessary.. do not put "numbers" above your people all the time.. realized that most people under supervisor level are there for the job, not a career, they want to do a good job, take care of their families, and not have to deal with the politics of a corporation.. also, stop making the employees feel as though they are always "under suspicion" and are taking advantage of the company at all times...

    Pros

    CEO and Plan President are highly skilled, personable and ethical. Benefits are the best I've seen anywhere.

    Cons

    Departments can be compartmentalized with limited interaction. First and second level managers are typically great at their job, however managers with "issues" are not routinely addressed unless risk management issues arise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management and HR should address issues and trends with these managers despite the perceived uniqueness of their skill set.
