I have been working at Blue Shield Of California full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good location, benefits, pay. Flexibility

Cons

Reorg took a year and a half and has led to lots of instability. Required working three jobs instead of my one since they laid off so many people. No support in the crazy times of ridiculous workload.

Advice to Management

Don't lay off people during the busiest time without having people to backfill the positions. Why hire contractors when you just laid off people with better skill sets? Wait 90 days to get through the busy time nyc then lay them off

    "Depressing and unrewarding. Little to no promotion from within. Careers go here to die."

    I have been working at Blue Shield Of California full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay. Good work life balance.

    Cons

    Little to no chance of advancement. In the time I have been there I have seen only a couple occasions where internal people were promoted to management positions. There are some really good, strong people at Blue Shield. Management doesn't seem to see it. Lots of talk about making it a great place to work but management in IT seems to do it because they have to not because the believe it.

    Advice to Management

    Look inside when it comes time to hire new managers.
