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

Pros

Job stability, good work life balance

Cons

Lack of growth prospects. Pretty much everyone gets the same bonus irrespective of their hard work. You get outdated working on internal stuff and become oblivious of the latest technological advancements

Advice to Management

Too much paper work to build software. Get some folks to handle paper work and let the software professionals do what they are good at i.e build software.

    I worked at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice working hours: Management does not like to hold meetings before 9am or after 3pm, many people work from home all day. Opulent facilities: management hired a chef from an exclusive New Orleans hotel to cook meals. No pressure regarding budgets: costs are simply passed along to policyholders.

    Cons

    Management frequently abuses staff (yelling, screaming, intimidation). Employees will get into trouble for scheduling a meeting prior to 9am, but not for a $1,000,000 budget slip.

    Advice to Management

    Stop management from abusing employees. Implement some of those management processes that you've spent millions to develop.
