    I have been working at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice office building, fairly good benefits, very diverse workforce

    Cons

    Work can be intense and very stressful; management doesn't really prioritize a work/life balance; pay is below market; many systems and processes are really outdated and behind the times

    Advice to Management

    Stop acting like it's normal to have employees work evenings and weekends for 9 months out of the year. It's not sustainable, and leads to high turnover.

    Pros

    Great people, fun holidays, HR by the book. Loved the HR people. Nice fellow employees.

    Cons

    too many reorgs. Too much company political stuff. Directors are not transparent. Especially between Chicago and Texas. Often atmosphere was like being underwater. You could cut the tension with a knife. Difficult to work under at the office those conditions.

    Advice to Management

    Get directors who were in IT to run IT.

    Pros

    Work life balance, pay is fair

    Cons

    Lacking solid leadership. Poor leadership

    Advice to Management

    Don't be in such a hurry to hire for "technical skill" over proven leadership ability. The loss of effective and strong leaders is going to greatly reduce efficiency and productivity.

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

    Pros

    Salary was good, no micro management on my end. Credit union was a plus. Bonus helped a lot. Work from home was super.

    Cons

    Company ethics was terrible, the staff was unprofessional. No drive whatsoever. No team environment, staff was bitter and unprofessional. To much gossip amongst them.

    Advice to Management

    Need to have positive attitudes and manage with authority.
