    I have been working at Capital BlueCross full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They value contractors (temps), it's very common to get hired on FT if you put in the work and effort. Flexible schedule, very understanding in that regard. People are generally welcoming and nice; most are 50+ years old. Would like to see more diversity among employees.

    Cons

    Parking, cafeteria food is absolutely disgusting - never hot, always cold.

    Advice to Management

    Make it a priority to higher a more diverse crowd. 85% of the people I work with could be my grandmother.

    Pros

    Help advance your career if they see you are ready.

    Cons

    Compensation is lower than what I am happy with and benefits are included in salary discussions to minimize take home.

    Pros

    Generous paid time off. That's all.

    Cons

    They let people go without considering the impact it will have on those who are left to figure it the members they serve. They still think 60 hours a week is the norm and not the exception. Bottom line it's about lining the pockets at the top and working the bottom to death. There is no communication and not everyone is treated the same. The company is living in its name. Providers don't like dealing with them and members are getting frustrated.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the details of what you are doing. Listen to your employees. Understand what they are doing before laying them off. Learn about work life balance. It's important.

    Flex time, opportunities to work from home. Good PTO plan

    Restructure salary scale, hire within like you claim you do

    I worked at Capital BlueCross full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Strong commitment to success via team building and comrodery between each area of the company. Sr. team approachable and open for suggestions. Continued movement towards modernizing and updating of social media and computer system updates.

    Cons

    Not really a con but they look to reorganize Sales team by shifting sales reps into new markets. This does give all of sales the opportunity to train and experience different group sizes and in some instances change from sales to retention.
