    I worked at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    well known in North Carolina but losing their hold quickly with providers and Customers! Example WakeMed just dropped them as their insurance carrier for their employees work benefit and switched with Aetna!

    Cons

    Work environment has changed since the health care laws have. In my opinion, one of the best companies to work for but now with the changing marketplace, they are more concerned for Corporate heads making their year-end bonuses and cutting everyone else below them. Stressful work environment and difficult to grow. For someone that has seen, heard and experienced group settings this by far has taught me now matter how much they try to convince you Live Fearless I think they are letting you know why they choose this Slogan/Copy. I hope this helps!

    Advice to Management

    Really little you can do now that you have committed to the marketplace and lost site of what was really important. Your Customers!

    Great work, life, family balance.

    Seemingly, they are gravitating towards a more contractual culture - as opposed to direct hire.

    Pros

    Pays good. Good benefits and perks.

    Cons

    Poor morality!!! Backstabbers especially in upper management. HR and managers do view complaints in the departments. Hire unqualified people and promote friends of friends only. Good ol boy network. Many former employees have filed lawsuits for wrongful termination and won!

    Advice to Management

    Stop throwing people under the bus to save yourself!
