    Pros

    Great benefits and work area. It is a nice place to work and they really take care of the employees.

    Cons

    Very little onboarding training. It is more of a figure it out as you go sort of atmosphere. Some areas are better than others but most people I speak with agree.

  5. "Great Healthcare Company, IT is lacking."

    I have been working at BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great Benefits, Gym, Cafeteria, Decent culture. Striving to innovate their Software Lifecycle management.

    Cons

    One thing to keep in mind is that this is not an IT Company, but rather a Healthcare Company who has a need for IT. Lagging behind in technology due to heavy dependencies on older tech. Efficient project management is lacking. Their partnership with IBM and their use of the technology seems to Stifle creativity and efficiency.

    I worked at BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Corporate Culture focuses on helping the members more than making money. Beautiful Campus in Chattanooga. Their career development programs are beginning to mature; there is a lot of support and vast resources for employees to learn and grow within the organization, and now there are better-defined paths to specific goals. Great benefits available.

    Cons

    Pretty big company for a small town like Chattanooga, new employees used to smaller organizations may need a while to adjust. Office politics can get pretty rough, and the feuds of the senior management sometimes result in difficulties for those "in the trenches".

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be more transparency at the Director level and above. While cutting costs is commendable, when workloads increase please don't be so reluctant to add resources to handle them.
