    Pros

    The people at Independence Blue Cross are wonderful to work with and to interact with. I never had a bad encounter with anyone I came a cross.

    Cons

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

    Pros

    It's an exciting time to be in Health Care due to Health Care Reform

    Cons

    Health Insurance will be a commidized business. And with that there's the move to automate and create efficiencies (which is code for cutting jobs).

    Pros

    The hours were good at IBC.

    Cons

    The salary was really low.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are treated like they are expendable, so there was a lot of turnover. Decent employees will not stay with the company longterm.
