Pros

BCBS-SC makes a lot of money and pay their people well. Large employer with many areas to choose for a career path.

Cons

Way too top heavy, they could operate with 40% of the staff they have and make much better numbers. Management is typically chosen from whomever has been there the longest and plays the political games. Performance reviews are quantitative according to HR and managers, but not in reality.

Advice to Management

Begin to manage the company as if it were going public and you'll have a much smoother, leaner running ship.

    Pros

    There are none unless you're starving to death, but eating cat food is better than working here.

    Too many to list. Maniacal IT management that treats people as commodities. Burn 'em out and get more.

    Advice to Management

    Retire so new people with a clue can get hired.
