    I worked at Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was recommended by senior management at home office to help build out a remote office outside of Chicago and company that was going captive with BCBS was unwilling to spend the money to build out a call center, spend the dollars needed. Then the main product wasn't approved for last year for the counties outside of Rockford.

    Cons

    Our hands were tied and since I was on commissions based on $50k - being a draw on future commissions. Program wouldn't have gone forward for a year and I wasn't willing to wait.

    Advice to Management

    Great company - if I could I'd love to work with you again.
