    I have been working at BlueCross BlueShield of Western New York full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Company cares about it's Members, Community and Employees. Great work life balance. Terriffic building with great amenities including covered parking, electric vehicle charging stations, Starbucks, Cafeteria, and much, much more. Working towards a more collaborative culture and the future of work. Continually trying to update systems and roll out new tools to those who need them (may not be perfect yet but there appears to be a plan).

    Cons

    None as the grass always appears greener somewhere else. I've been to other places and this organization stands out as the best. Several staff have left over the years and returned to tell stories of how much better it is here.
