I have been working at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Wonderful company, I love it and plan to hopefully retire from there. It's somewhat of a family atmosphere and lots of friendly smiles.

Cons

Very tense place at times. And you have to "know" somebody to advance.

Advice to Management

Listen to your workers, their opinion matters!

    Pros

    There are some good managers.

    Cons

    Too many layoffs. Employees will not work closely together because they fear being laid off if someone else learns their job. Everyone is nervous. It makes the atmosphere very tense.


  2. "Overall, good company."

    I have been working at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Company headed in right direction. Good CEO
    - Cares about employee awareness/engagement
    - AMAZING work/life balance
    - Encourages volunteerism and leader in community investments

    Cons

    - Not a "fun" company to work for. Appearance of stodgy insurance company is a reality
    - The politics and "watching your back" particularly at higher levels creates a challenging culture to get things done.
    - Depending on business area, can be very micromanaging
    - Decision by consensus leads to lack of empowerment and longer timeframe to accomplish goals.
    - Sense of entitlement among staff stronger than other companies which is good for security but not as great for production and motivation to learn more/new things.

    Advice to Management

    - Stop taking ourselves so seriously. Encourage a little more fun in the culture.
    - Be clear about decision-making authority and encourage decisiveness.
