    I have been working at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good corporate culture and a flexible work schedule are nice, company truly cared about the communities in which they are located.

    Cons

    Top-heavy organizational structure means there are not enough "worker bees". Leadership doesn't seek out differing opinions most of the time.

    Advice to Management

    Hire the best person for the position, not just the person with seniority

    Pros

    Full time work plus overtime, lots of overtime in the security guard dept.
    Lots of benefits, plus a pension,health,dental etc..

    Cons

    Could transfer to another dept. every 6 months, so you were kind of stuck in one place until another position opened up.

    Advice to Management

    Give your employes a pay raise a little more often.

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

    Pros

    Benefits, People you meet and you work with are truly amazing. They become like family. Best training I ever received and I'm prior military.

    Cons

    Strict schedule and use metrics to determine what shift you get. Breaks/lunches are mandated. No sick leave during training. If you get really sick it's nothing you can do about that and it will be used against you.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people so that they want to stay.

    Pros

    I've been with HCSC for 10+ years and have seen a lot of positive change and I must say that this is by far the best company I have every worked for. Overall, we have a strong organizational culture that cares about it's employees and values work-life balance. We also care deeply for our members and do everything we can to help them. We are making great strides to be progressive and improve member service.

    Cons

    As with any relationship, no company is perfect. I have always been of the mindset that I need to be a part of the solution rather than the problem.

    Advice to Management

    Continue listening to employee feedback.
