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

Pros

Good pay and benefits. Job security. Plenty of training opportunities. Keeps pace with current technology. Management is moving in the right direction to help improve the culture.

Cons

Can be very bureaucratic. Not surprising since this is a highly regulated industry but it seems that experts were not consulted when implementing some of the audit controls that are in place especially within IT.

Advice to Management

Fix the poorly implemented controls that are in place to meet audit requirements.

    I have been working at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Blue Cross has tons of incentives for their employees to do their best. We have the opportunity of getting free healthcare, they care about our weight loss goals, and this is a place where you can build a career and not just job.

    Cons

    There is an issue of communication within certain departments and if there is an issue it's sometimes hard to get an issue resolved even when using the proper channels.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and learn to take focused feedback (constructive criticism).

    Pros

    The benefits program is resonable

    Cons

    lack of promotional opportunities, nepotism, unfairness, laziness and incomeptence from managers who are out of touch with reality and would rather play angry birds on their iphones! i found the senior leadership team to be one of the worst in the industry, passion for your career gets you nowhere, you have to be in a clique to succeed!

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing with your iphones during work hours, listen to your empoyees and treat people with fairness and dignity
