I worked at Premera Blue Cross full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Premera has a nice physical workspace, cafeteria. There are some very good people there. Good integrity with regard to their products (despite what people think of insurance companies).

Cons

There is a culture of not sharing knowledge so that one can feel like they are "needed". Salaries are low, and as is typical with health insurance companies, they are slow to embrace technology. Remote working is discouraged, and a general sense of distrust with employees is felt. (I am not talking about employees at an entry level position.) The CEO and executive level salary discrepancy is outrageous and disheartening when bonus time rolls around and you see how wide the gap is between the haves and have nots.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Recognize the work of the people who are making your company tick. Stop promoting uneducated, smokers above their level of competency; this is not the type of person you want to lead your company. Remember, just because someone was good at one job does not make them a good leader.
