    I have been working at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Love my job. I am fortunate enough to be in the mix with a great team of many professionals who are passionate about their work. A lot of flexibility in work hours and management takes work/life balance seriously. Benefits are awesome and there are a lot of opportunities to learn, serve the local community and get fit.

    Cons

    The only downside for me is the commute.

    I have been working at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I enjoy working with people, helping and educating them. Many of us don't know how to get in contact with the services that services that are available to them. We all need help at one point in our lives and we want someone to take our hand and guide us to the right direction. When our health is not at par at that moment we need someone that we can trust to help us.

    Cons

    Actually there is not down falls, we just need to improve on things that don't seem to work. There is always room to adjust and grow for better way of doing things

    Advice to Management

    Keep everything human level. We are helping others when they are down, fragile and vulnerable.

    Pros

    A successful company that knows how to take care of its employees. BCBSM promotes the continued education and career development of their employees, great diversity in the workforce, employee health, and employing veterans, among many other good things. Great building in a good location.

    Cons

    Not much to say here. Pay for legal team is slightly below market, but most jobs come with extremely fair compensation and good benefits (healthcare benefits are obviously good). Not much to complain about in my 2 years at BCBSM.

    Pros

    Great benefits, easy going workplace, easy to move up and to find your perfect fit. BCBSM also pays for school wether it be undergrad, graduate, or certain trainings.

    Cons

    There is a very corporate old school feel even though the company values are far from it. Offices are grey and bland, and the bureaucracy can be a tad bit too much.

    I have been working at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    The headquarters is in a nice location in downtown Detroit. Safe area. Everyone is very friendly, and it's an overall friendly environment.

    Cons

    For me, the only real con is the commute there everyday. Eventually you get used to it, though. Not much to complain about.

    I worked at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The department is very small; only five members, so you really get that one on one with even the Senior Director. People were great to work with, very diverse department. The department saying was "we take are our work seriously but not each other."

    Cons

    The overall culture in the company wasn't great. There are five generations working in the office, so there is a lot of clash between traditionalist and millennials.
