Approves of CEO

I worked at Blue Shield Of California full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

- Great bonuses: The year end bonuses can be substantial. If your group does well, they can be tens of thousands of dollars, depending on your level
- Wellness Programs - they offer discounts on Weight Watchers, Gym memberships, etc for people who want to get healthy
- Telecommuniting Options - space in Sacramento is hard to come by, so they often let you work from home

Cons

- They cut people, jobs, etc when they really don't need to. It's a company that acts like a for profit and doesn't support it's staff to the event that they should
- BSC charges high premiums for health care!! They are a provider, but offer not real incentives for their employees

Advice to Management

- listen to your people and actually DO SOMETHING! You have all these people meetings, but we never saw real change.

    Its time for BSC to grow up and start to take back some of the consultant roles. Continue to improve the culture, things are getting better and we have a ways to go but continue this process.
