    Good benefits, opportunity to learn multitude of environments. Get in, learn what you can in 3-4 years then get out.

    Cons

    Management is not technical and do not appreciate talent, pay is stagnant, career progression non existent. Management does not support you when the metal hits the metal.

    Advice to Management

    Get with the times, allow more remote work, don't manage by fear

    I worked at BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    was able to kind of work from home

    Cons

    It was the worst experience. They allowed others to take work... If I wanted to get paid I would have to be up and working by 5am or my work would be taken.
    They made in work in house more than I was suppose too.

    Advice to Management

    Make it fair. Not allowing people to get away with doing all of the "quick" work

    I worked at BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Secure job. Many people work there for their entire life.

    Cons

    Vindictive managers who fire employees and contractors at a whim. Many of the permanent employees do no work whatsoever and just joke around with the manager when he walks around for his daily five minutes. The manager and Project Leaders seem to spend an incredible amount of time surfing the web. This is a great place to work if you have no ambition. However even hardworking employees and contractors will get nowhere in this environment.

    Advice to Management

    No advise given. The managment style is so old school, repressive and ingrained it cannot and never will change. A lot of the people who work there do absolutely nothing....and get away with it.

    Pros

    It is a great place to get your foot in the door

    Cons

    Worst employee insurance benefits, management doesn't want you to be successful, not what you know but who you know.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within, appreciate your employees, come visit us from out of your glass tower, pay better give us better medical insurance and not charge us a boatload of money for it

    Pros

    good pto program; friendly coworkers although they can be immature

    Cons

    everyone is on anxiety meds

    stop asking your employees for donations for the community so frequently. most of us need charity ourselves

    Advice to Management

    pay your employees a living wage- most of us are living paycheck to paycheck but have to keep good credit scores to keep our jobs. impossible!
