    I worked at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois, Montana, New Mexico, Oklahoma & Texas | HCSC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great healthcare plan
    Lots of technology
    Great bonus plan. Depending on your grade level you get 10-20%
    If you are a go getter lots of opportunities for work
    Great place to work if you are on the right team

    Cons

    IT is very silo'd which makes it difficult figuring out who to contact to get things done.
    Not a lot of upward advancement opportunities unless you want to switch teams.
    Promotions can be hard to come by.
    Annual corporate health check results are not taken seriously by management

    Advice to Management

    Get out of the way. There are lots of sharp, young talent that leave because there are not enough opportunities. Start paying your good talent more, and stop wasting money of poor software choices.

    Positive Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois, Montana, New Mexico, Oklahoma & Texas | HCSC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Close to south Metra line; can walk to protected from direct exposure to weather.
    Official diversity policy and mandatory training.
    Can use restroom that fits your gender identity.
    Combined vacation and sick days is good.
    Employee insurance is pretty good, but not the bargain you'd think it would be.

    Cons

    True diversity doesn't apply to transsexuals. Insurance doesn't cover procedures.
    There are cliques where you get quick promotions in right ones but not in wrong ones. Seems partially guided by race.
    Pay bands are okay but I was underpaid.
    There are some over-sensitive people and those who don't get hyperbole who won't think twice about getting you in trouble with Corporate Compliance.
    Training opportunities may be good or bad.
    Upward or lateral movement can be limited.

    Advice to Management

    Value people who actually do the work and help others.
    End your hypocrisy. You talk all the time about how much money you make, how large your reserves are, diversity, valuing employees, serving underserved populations, and doing everything in your power to stand with members in sickness and health, Yet you dropped your 100 HRC CEI rating in 2012 as soon as you had to cover procedures to treat gender dysphoria. You'll cover it for client organizations, but not employees!
