    Pros

    Decent pay, no set schedule, semi free health insurance..

    I worked at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice people, great benefits, nice cafeteria.

    Cons

    They don't fire many people, so you can run into people that shouldn't still have a job, but these are not the majority. It is slow-moving, probably in a large part due to government regulation, but also do to corporate lethargy.

    Advice to Management

    Too many managers.

    Pros

    Health benefits and bonuses. Great communication between the upper management and employees. Great training for new hires also. Everyone is friendly, no matter what their job title is.

    Cons

    None. I tried to think of at least one and I couldn’t. Probably parking being closer but other than that, I love it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    I worked at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana full-time

    Pros

    The organization as a whole is great. Their are great benefits. I.E casual dress everyday, work from home program

    Cons

    Some of the leaders that have been there for over 10 years are resistance to change. The organization is too large to operate like a "Mom and Pop". There are many complaints about HR & Customer Service, two of the main areas that operate the organization. There are a lot of positions that employees are in that are cush jobs that aren't needed. They old have it because of the politics and people they know. i.e Customer Service and HR.

    Advice to Management

    Start holding leaders accountable for things that are going on in their department.

    Pros

    Insurance is great and it's free along with wellness events. Love the coworkers and being around them. Happy to be in a 9-5 job and weekends and holidays off. Good pay also.

    Hard to move into another dept or position. Quality is really petty and instead of focusing on the big picture focused on small things that are sometimes uncontrollable.

    I have been working at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana full-time

    Pros

    This is a very stable company that cares for its employees. It goes beyond where other companies would be willing to go to serve their employees, especially those in need. Salaries and benefits are usually more generous than what other employers offer for similar positions and experience levels.

    Cons

    Management does not always have it all together. Minorities are underrepresented in middle to top management positions.
