No opinion of CEO

Pros

* Great people to work with * If you do a job well & apply yourself there are growth opportunities * Depending on the department there is good work/life balance * Cafeteria/food service on site * Good benefits * Easy commute * Free parking * Depending on the department, emplolyee & management some flexible schedules granted

Cons

* Senior managment mismanages projects (e.g. the quanity & volume that can be achieved with resoures & time alloted) causing chaos which spans multi departments * Company set's their values & vision and then goes against it when the next bright idea comes along * Some workers go above & beyond while others slack big time and get away with it * Wasteful team, department & organizational mandatory meetings * Not up with the times by enforcing Business Casual attire

Advice to Management

Create the vision & stick with it for longer than a few months. Hire the volume of staff needed to support the volume of work to be done Learn to say no if you can't stick to the two items above

    Company that's doing the right thing for health care, but very hierarchical & challenging to get things done

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Premera should be commended for the leadership role it is taking in trying to transform the challenges we have in this country with its health care system. Senior management believes and acts on doing the right thing. If you want to be a part of the solution to change health care, this is the place to be.

    Cons

    Really tough work environment and it's very hierarchical. While they have a strong management team, they are their own worse enemy. there's lots of bureaucracy involved in getting decisions made and while they think they're moving at a fast pace, they're not. As an employee, you need to have a lot of patience and thick skin to work at PRemera. Be prepared to receive little if any praise or recognition and many times, the reward for good work is more work. If you're a person who thrives on taking on more work with little recognition or pay then Premera is the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    You spend a lot of money hiring smart people. Get out of the way and let them do their work. Senior management wants too much control in how decisions are made and how the work gets done.

    Pros

    Helpful supervisors, great benefits (a wide range of options to choose from for medical/dental/vision insurance), great company morale, lots of freebies. They have an awesome lunch area with all types of food serviced by Sodexho.

    Cons

    I don't have anything really bad to say about them. Sometimes the call center could get hectic, but that is normal. I would work their again in a heartbeat if they were hiring!

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management at Premera Blue Cross is to keep up the good work! Continue to treat each employee as an important member of the team and this company will go even farther than it already has!
