      Former Employee, more than 5 years

      Started off great and progressively got worse as economy and the success of company goes downhill.

      Pros

      Good people that you work with for the most part. Everyone is friendly. But is getting worse as workloads increase due to decline in the businesses success which has caused less people to do a lot more.

      Cons

      Too many VPs, Directors, Managers. Very top heavy. Goal system is dept. or "team" goals. Meaning select few do a lot more work than others without being compensated for it. Tenure employees get to coast by doing minimum amount. If work. When I started it was a positive and family atmosphere, as economy and the business suffered, more layoffs occurred, which lead to restructuring of departments that didn't make any sense. Company is going downhill along with the moral of its workers.

      Current Intern, less than 1 year

      Decent Company, Mediocre Experience

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great team environment, friendly with good benefits for employees and fun opportunities and events. Pretty black and white in terms of what company does and what it looks for. When I did have a project, it was very step-oriented and great for an organized, detailed person.

      Cons

      A LOT of downtime is an understatement. In my experience as an intern, we were often confused about what we should be doing, and more often than not had nothing at all to be doing. Sometimes felt like CBC was top heavy and over-managed.

      Pros

      good pay and good benefits

      Cons

      very top heavy in exec and senior roles limited opportunities for advancement political environment and cliquish with little to no mentorship (very siloed and territorial) old tech, old processes and slow to change the talked about 'culture' does not match up to reality in most business areas and departments (low morale throughout)

      Pros

      Salary and benefits good. Excellent tuition reimbursement program and internal training opportunities. Gym in all buildings. Diversity of employees. Caring for the healthcare needs of our membership, individual and group markets.

      Cons

      Seasoned employees are not valued for their background, knowledge and experience, thereby no real opportunity for advancement, even within assigned department/unit. Changes to pension plan and medical benefits. Compensation for waving healthcare coverage not on par with other large employers. Top heavy - too many supervisors, managers, directors, senior directors, vice-presidents, and senior vice-presidents, executive vice-presidents, president, CEO for a company of 2000 employees.
