    I worked at Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association full-time

    Pros

    Amazing people and a great environment. There was always work to do. I would walk in the front door and be greeted by everyone I see.

    Cons

    The only con that I can think of is that I wasn't challenged. Everything seemed to be a little too easy and I love a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    I felt like I was jumping from one project to the next. The management needs to find a project that will take longer than one day to complete. This was not a major issue, but it could improve employee satisfaction in the long-run.
