    I worked at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    For someone willing to work hard and not be afraid to get involved, there are good advancement opportunities. Seasonal long hours can be expected in some of the departments I worked in.

    Cons

    As in most organizations, you'll find a good deal of politics. This trick is to keep focused on the job and avoid personality issues.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to solicit ideas from the line employees. Explain the goals at hand and ask for suggestions.

    I have been working at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and salary. Yearly bonus. Pension.

    Cons

    Executives message to employees is that BCBSM supports empowerment of employees and diversity. Management team does not support the Corporate Culture. Motivation comes from fear and intimidation. Unrealistic expectations are the norm and when deadlines aren't met it is blamed on the employees. Successes are dismissed and mistakes are amplified to promote a culture of fear of losing your job. Interns and contractors are treated with more respect and value than long-term employees.

    Advice to Management

    Encouragement, respect and appreciation goes much farther than fear and intimidation.
