    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.

    I worked at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits such as fitness reimbursement, tuition prepayment, Health blue living rewards, affordable health care, there is plenty of oppurtunties for growth especially in the medicare advantage area.

    Cons

    There is a pay gap between the men and women. There is a pay gap between African american employees versus White employees. I.E. White person has lower job grade will make more than Black person with higher job grade. Promotional opportunities based on favor rather than skills and qualifications. In the MA service center I 've known leadership to make exceptions for white people who have no college degrees to receive promotion with the condition that they go back to school but for the black counterparts they are denied the opportunities until they finish the degree.Process improvements need to better, need better quality programs in place, MA servicing and MA operations Leadership is reactive. Lastly leadership is not forthcoming with employees.

  8. "Great job with great benifits."
