    Consider your contract employees as great assets to the running of the company and should be treated as such after 6 monts or less they should become permanent if they have proved themselves.

    I have been working at Florida Blue full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Great Top level leaders

    Cons

    What is said rarely equates to what is actually done. Be prepared to be elevated with a lie, then torn down with the truth....unless of course, you are privy to already know or share kinship with an exec. The company TRULY has great values on paper but most of the leaders do not exemplify or execute those values. Lastly, most jobs are posted with an intended candidate. I'm saying that as a longtime witness and recipient of this practice.

    Pros

    FB is a progressive company that has diversified itself to be in the best position for 21st century economical challenges.

    Cons

    FB partners with a few of the industries bad apples.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Accelerated leadership change is for you... Not for the employees to accomplish. It's time for the same old players making the same old decisions to lead, follow or get out of the way
