    I worked at Blue Shield Of California full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    You couldn't ask for a better group of people to work with. In my 10+ years, I never woke up not wanting to go to work and I enjoyed the work that I did. The pay and benefits are good (unfortunately the pension was eliminated for people under 40).

    Cons

    Though the work was enjoyable, we did work hard. The normal work week was 45-55 hours and sometimes that included weekends. However, our hard work was always recognized.

    Advice to Management

    Sr management should try to be more transparent.

    Pros

    The work is challenging because this is a growing company with a hefty mission. The leadership team is focused on the right things: transforming healthcare, growing the best talent and creating an environment focused on innovation.

I also appreciate that leadership isn't afraid to make tough decisions.
