    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Close to BART and Farmer's Market
    Mostly friendly co-workers, with a few exceptions
    Trying to change the culture, but it won't -- too old school

    Cons

    Overall experience depends on your manager -- bad manager = bad day at the office
    It's hard to get anything done
    Excessive work demands w/o adequate resources
    Lots of politics and back=stabbing; managers play favorites
    No work-life balance; expected to work whatever hours your project takes
    Have to deal with very inexperienced people who don't understand the business
    Siloed beyond belief
    Technology is like 10 years behind
    Skill sets rot here --not a place for techies who like to keep abreast

    Advice to Management

    BSCA has lost some great folks the last three=four years, some departments with as much as 90% turnover -- in a recession! Get your head out of the sand. Remember, the exchange will make some health insurance a commodity, which means you won't be able to offer anything that differentiates your products.

    "This company sets unrealistic expectations followed by a coercive work environment topped off with managerial favorites."

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Benefits are nice
    Personal time off was generous
    Friendly Coworkers (with a couple exceptions)
    When company wants something from employees they spoil them first

    Cons

    Upper Management has no clue who runs the show on the way down.
    Uneducated workers chosen as manager favorites are the ones that create the policies and procedures
    CEO made millions and the raises to employees were pathetic I thought this was a non profit?
    Unrealistic expectations set by management they have no evidence these goals can be reached by anyone. They feed their favorites the work they need so they can make the goals and make everyone else scrambling to try
    Coercive work environment all around. Disturbing how many people have to deal with the daily abuse because they have no choice. If the economy was better there would be a substantial turn over.
    Many people on stress leave
    The best day at Blue Shield is the day after your last day.

    Advice to Management

    Before you set expectations remember you are dealing with people not robots. So many changes are constantly taking place no one can keep up. Way too many lower end employees have the control of processes and procedures and make unnecessary changes. Management needs to do their job and not leave it to the employees.
