    I worked at Blue Shield Of California (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fair wages; decent benefits, retirement plans for most, flexible schedules, work from home (for certain job types)

    Cons

    Leadership has undergone many changes which puts employees on edge (or at least those uncomfortable with change)

    Advice to Management

    Continue your proactive approach with employees - focus on keeping it real - they already know what's happening they just want confirmation from the top on the facts.
