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

Pros

Great work-life balance, they'll ask very little of you. Friendly co-workers. Salary is on the lower side, but overall a decent comp package.

Cons

Promotions are based on length of tenure, not work ethic or contributions. Most managers are just trying to hold on till retirement. There is absolutely no incentive to excel at this company, not only will it do nothing to help your career, it may hurt it.

This company does not have a bright outlook, the membership decreases every year, they create opaque metrics to mask issues. The CEO is the 3rd highest paid employee in the company... His only real contribution is that he is willing to work for low pay.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Professional environment with many skilled colleagues. Innovation abounds and they continue to offer strong products at acceptable prices, holding their position as a market leader.

    Cons

    Departments within the company often seem to operate in "silos." Could be better integration between functional areas. As a market leader unfortunately some workers and leaders walk around with a chip on their shoulder and an expectation that the market will always bend to the BCBSMA way of life, which is not the case.
