I worked at Florida Blue as a contractor (less than an year)

Pros

The co workers and some of the managers were very pleasant to work with and for.

Cons

Some managers were not pleasant to work for. They treat their contractors like garbage! I was told on Friday 2/1/2013 that I had a contract extension until July, 6 2013. I came to work that following Monday worked my shift and was not told anything was changing. I received a call from my recruiter that night saying my contract had been terminated immediately! My original contract was not supposed to be up until 02/15/2013. I could have been transferred to a different department because my old position was available, however because I was terminated I can no longer go back to that company for a year.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They need to actually give people notice that the contract is ending even if we are just contractors. It also would be nice if they check to see if there are other job opportunities for us before they just terminate us for no reason!

    I worked at Florida Blue full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Flexibility - my management was very understanding and allowed flexibility in scheduling. However, other managers in the area did not work with their employees and their personal lives
    The current CEO seems committed to change - the previous ones were not
    On site gym, two cafeterias, free parking

    Cons

    More political than other companies where I've worked
    There is no time for career development, stretch assignments or training
    Promotions happen rarely, no opportunity for growth
    Too many meetings where nothing gets done
    Some areas very much work in a silo
    You have to fight for work/life balance and if you put your life first, that can be the kiss of death for your career
    For a health insurance company, the benefits aren't that great
