    Pros

    There are no pros for this company.

    Cons

    Black women are worth 3 points, white women are worth 2 points, white men are worth 1 point and black men are worth 0 points in the eyes of management.

    The older white men do most all of the work. Then they toss an inexperienced black woman or a white woman on top to take all of the credit. Black men have no value.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep collecting those paychecks from the people of the state of Michigan.

    Pros

    Very good health benefits, free parking, not prone to boom & bust cycles, close to expressway location, tight building security

    Cons

    Leaders are nervous and clueless. They constantly hire contractors to tell them what they should do. When things go wrong, they find underling scapegoats and frame them. If you are minding your business and not kissing up the ladder, no matter how well you do the job, your job is at risk.

    Pros

    Benefits,esp. employer paid healthcare related

    Cons

    In last two years, BCBSM has adopted forced ranking system,which they would not admit, because admitting would expose them to lawsuits. Leadership lacks vision and knowledge. Consultants like Accenture and big-4 accounting make tons of money by doing the leaders' job. As a result, constant shift in the execution of priorities, culture of blaming and finding scapegoats when things go wrong, and constant shifts in direction. If you get a new manager who does not like you, watch out. HR will help them document falsehoods to get rid of you without severance.

    Advice to Management

    Be smart, steady and confident, rather than constantly relying on the crutch of outside consultants,

    Pros

    Benefits are rich , esp. health ins.

    Cons

    Very political. Audit management is gutless and political. They would not back up the staff. Finance function is a mess. Finance management constantly blame lower level staff for all their errors and fiascos. Constant management churn and they keep on layering management from outside hires who have little knowledge of people and processes.

    Advice to Management

    Grow your people instead of bringing hired guns who do not have a clue and just bully lower staff.

    Pros

    Benefits, esp. health coverage is superb. Paid Time off is competitive. 401K and pension contributions are very good. Very competitive.

    Cons

    Becoming top heavy, autocratic and cliquish. Middle management is tactical, not strategic. Top management's solution is to hire more middle managers externally.

    Advice to Management

    Cut down layers of management, and keep close watch on the externally hired new directors. Hire more people to do work, cross train and develop them.
