    I have been working at Palmetto GBA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Awesome management Very comfortable Nice facility Work with great people Lunch break time is adequate Landscaping is nice too look at

    Cons

    Chance for growth and promotion feels limited. Taxes in South Carolina take out a huge chunk of my check so I don't feel like I'm actually making that much money not to mention the huge tax you have to pay SC just for existing...

    Advice to Management

    I'd like to know how close I am to a promotion every time I improve myself. Maybe like a point system.

    Pros

    Nothing that I feel is beneficial to regular employees..

    Cons

    Misinformation regularly given at interviews regarding position requirements; mismanaged deadlines, long hours, low pay, lack of professional training, and the regular use of outdated inaccurate training materials. Staff employees are added and decreased as necessary to maintain the bottom line. The regular full time employees are overworked regularly to make up for lack of management planning and to ensure the profit margin is maintained at an acceptable level. It is expected and required. No consideration is given to the employees or their responsibilities or other obligations outside of the work place. In general an unethical, unprofessional place to work. I would not recommend this company to anyone.

    Advice to Management

    Follow the many rules and procedures that you expect your employees to follow. Treat all employees fairly. Adhere to the many signs and posters posted all over the building regarding using proper ethics, doing the right thing, giving your best and treating others fairly. It appears these posters are only for the regular employees not management. Make your profits using ethical and professional practices that not only apply to your external business associates but to your employees as well.

    I have been working at Palmetto GBA full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have enjoyed working for Blue Cross for the last 9 years, I have learned a lot and I would recommend this job to everyone. The pay is good and the bonuses are great. There is a great work schedule and numerous days off.

    Cons

    The phones stay busy and there is always changes to the regulations trying to make sure things work comfortably. Certain areas more training time is needed and then other things training is not long enough.

    Advice to Management

    The leadership is great to work with and for.

    I worked at Palmetto GBA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They are part of blue cross blue shield of South Carolina, so the benefits are decent and they offer tuition assistance. They also offer flexible work schedules/hours.

    Cons

    Too much focus on how long you have been with the company instead of what you contribute and your education. Salaries are not competitive compared to market. Seems like they are just interested in putting a warm body in a chair, rather than finding the right person for the job. Everyone gets the same meager increase no matter if you work your butt off or if you are lazy as heck.

    Advice to Management

    Implement pay for performance. It's the only way you will retain highly qualified employees who will actually do quality work. I've been told that the company tries to recruit on college campuses, but has little success because they treat their professional employees like blue collar workers. Respect your employees, recognize their accomplishments, and pay them a competitive salary.

    Pros

    Business development and continuous improvement are on the front burner. If you're willing to roll up your sleeves and work there are plenty of opportunities for implementing innovations.

    Cons

    Year-to-year salary management is fairly rigid so your best bet is to negotiate upfront during the initial hiring process. Get your money up front.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to push the envelope on business processes and improvements. Front-line employees have the next "best ideas". Please continue to ask us!

    Pros

    The pay is fairly decent and the benefits.

    Cons

    Contract based jobs so you risk the possibility of being out of a job every few years, micromanaging is rampant through out company

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the peons. Our opinion should matter. Stop with the cronyism.
