    I have been working at Blue Cross of Idaho full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    M-F, great pay, set schedule, great benefits, beautiful campus

    Cons

    Temp to hire, boring training, fire-happy supervisors, depressing co workers

    Advice to Management

    Don't seem so hard to talk to, maybe don't introduce yourselves to staff to make it seem like you big wigs are unnapproachable. Include the top workers in special projects, reward people who go above and beyond with some incentive other than what every other worker already has and gets just from being employed there

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

    Pros

    I have been working as a temp for BCID in Twin Falls for the past 8 months & I love it! The people I work with are caring & team oriented. The company is going through a lot of changes with the uncertainty of the individual insurance market right now, but they are making a concerted effort to communicate well with their employees which is something I appreciate & that a lot of companies don't do.

    Cons

    Twin Falls is a smaller market for BCID. I would like to see them put some resources into developing this area.

    Advice to Management

    None. I am very happy with my management team.

    I worked at Blue Cross of Idaho full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Leading insurer in Idaho. High market share. Strong brand. Great cadre of coworkers. Turnover in key positions seems to be growing, but the company continues to achieve objectives.

    Cons

    Changing leadership with changing vision that remains to be proven. Recent financial performance is troubling. A leadership group with a much smaller connection to Idaho than has traditionally been the case
