    Pros

    Due to the ACA, the company is going through a massive overhaul and if you like change, this is a nice place to be.
    The company takes pride in being active in the community and focuses on the well-being of Floridians.

    Cons

    Very little focus on employee development.

    Advice to Management

    Need to focus more on employee development.

  3. Not for everyone, but there are probably worse places to work.

    Pros

    Pay is decent. Benefits are decent, PTO for salaried employees gets very good over time. For IT professionals, FLB uses a lot of technologies so it's highly educational.

    Cons

    Culture isn't very good at this time. A company that used to value its employees as its "most valuable resource," in recent years FLB has been "driving for the middle." Perhaps due to industry change, leadership seems a bit muddled about their goals for the company.

    Advice to Management

    Start fixing the culture and developing employees for the long haul. Get some clarity about company direction. Figure out what kind of company you want to be.

    Pros

    They offer great monetary and insurance packages. Great campus. There's no need to leave campus for breakfast or lunch because there are cafeterias steps away from your building.

    Cons

    Annual lay-offs in information technology

    Advice to Management

    Create more entry level IT positions for future advancement into that department.

    Pros

    Good health benefits, tuition reimbursement, and flexibility with hours.

    Cons

    There are many positions on the Florida Blue campus, but the customer service positions pay the least although our job is very tasking. It's extremly difficult to leave customer service and go to a higher paying position.

    Advice to Management

    Most of management has been with the company for years and are set in their way of doing things. It's best to learn to communicate with your supervisor effectively as possible even if you don't agree with their management style.

    Pros

    A strong company trying to respond to fundamental changes in the health care and health insurance industry. Be ready for constant change. Strong vision of where it wants to go.

    Cons

    Lots of internal change and reorganization, with downsizing in some areas and new opportunities in others. Constant change could be a negative if it's something you dislike.
