Does Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois, Montana, New Mexico, Oklahoma & Texas | HCSC have any sort of mentoring program?

Pros

There were a lot of professional development activities, including skills workshops and talks by executives in the company. I learned a lot about the company and industry this way. There were also many resources for learning more about various topics and keeping up on the current news in the healthcare industry. The team I worked on was prepared by having my projects ready for me to start on right away and was very welcoming and pleasant to work with. I also really enjoyed the mentorship program, as my mentor became a friend who I am still in contact with.

Cons

Although I had a great experience at HCSC, internship experiences varied greatly based on the team. It also varied in terms of which teams extended full-time offers at the end of the summer. Another thing to keep in mind is most of the interns are undergrads, so as a graduate student it can feel a little bit isolating socially. Compensation was average to perhaps a little bit below average and didn't include any perks beyond an hourly rate.

What is the feeling of job security at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois, Montana, New Mexico, Oklahoma & Texas | HCSC?

Pros

Well-positioned in the market; a large company with a lot of financial resources.

Cons

There was a power struggle on the Board a couple years ago and the greedy, shortsighted Board members won. They adopted policies of mass layoffs, hiring/promotion freezes and even made the dress code more strict. This company used to have a strong ethical mission but that has been replaced by a rapacious desire to maximize profits at all costs. Maurice Smith is a BCBSIL lifer, but he’s a sellout and a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
