I worked at Premera Blue Cross full-time (less than a year)

Pros

Good company and professional envirornment. Decent benefits, and culture is good but very stiff, not a lot of flexibility but that can be good. People in other departments really enjoy their jobs at Premera, however, there are issues within the department that I work in.

Cons

Leadership on my team (not all teams) is very poor. The coordinator is running the department, not the manager. No direction and no support to do my job properly. A lack of understanding and experience in management to control the team.

    Current Employee - Marketing in Mountlake Terrace, WA

    I have been working at Premera Blue Cross full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    * Peers in marketing are smart, supportive
    * Industry leader with stability
    * No hassle accommodation for disabilities
    * Health insurance coverage is good, as you might expect

    Cons

    * Middle and upper management frequently at war with each other, casualties mount quickly; which makes it difficult to understand direction or maintain motivation.
    * Like many other places, stated goal is to innovate and be creative, but truth is that anything new or creative is quickly squelched.
    * Silos are thick and impermeable.
    * If you live anywhere but northern suburbs, commute is going to get tiresome. Metro buses stop 2 miles south, Sounder stops 2 miles west, no shuttles.
