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

Pros

Most people I work with are pleasant and easy to work with. Benefits are pretty good as they should be since this is an Insurance Company.

Cons

If you are interested in other positions within the company unless you have the experience for that position you are more not likely to be offered the job.

Advice to Management

Ask current employees what interests they may have in other departments and how can the company help them to achieve their dreams right here without having to seek employment elsewhere in order to get ahead.

    I worked at Blue Shield Of California full-time

    Pros

    Mission driven organization basically trying to do the right thing. Salaries, bonuses and benefits are fair, not a differentiator though.

    Cons

    Company has been through quite a bit of upheaval over the past few years in key areas. Still trying to find its way. Unfortunately, a lot of good folks have left either on their own or with the help of infamous "re-orgs". Company touts that they are dedicated to top talent however, they are listening to unproven new individuals or folks that have been around a while and just know how to work the company politics for individual gain. The company's tools and processes are outdated and they do not appear to be gaining any ground. The basics cause recurring issues which hinders the organization from making progress towards its goals.

    Advice to Management

    When a group "re-orgs" the majority of it's employees yet immediately posts new positions with the same job responsibilities, there is a problem. Take a look at what your new leadership is actually doing, not just what they are saying. It will only be a matter of time before someone catches on and finds the courage to call the company on it. Employee engagement efforts will only work if you take care of the basics first. Really dig into why top talent is leaving or being moved out. At some point, leaders who have churned through countless talented employees will have to take a look in the mirror instead of casting stones.
