    Pros

    Many training courses are available online in Independence University. Many volunteering opportunities. Impressive medical, dental, vision benefits. Free gym at main building.

    Company is cutting employees in many departments with duties moving to Highmark. IBC migrated to Highmark's systems. A few departments have exceptions for cutting employees.

    Some of the work was mundane I do not think this was any IBC's fault it was just the nature of the job.
