I worked at BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Salary/Benefits: The company offers fair pay and benefits to employees. The company's tuition reimbursement program is outstanding compared to other companies! I actually completed 1 3/4 degrees using the tuition reimbursement program.

Work: The work is fast-paced, ever-changing, and you will never experience a bored day.

Environment: Working in a regional office (Memphis) offers a friendly environment and you will know most employees my name or at least face.

Cons

There are VERY limited opportunities for advancement within the Memphis regional office. The few positions that are offered are not filled by the most qualified individuals due to political alliances or other personal preferences.

Working in a regional office feels disconnected from the main campus in Chattanooga. There is very little cohesiveness and employees seem to have an "Us" versus "Them" mentality which is further perpetuated by management.

Advice to Management

If the company is going to offer and pay for the opportunity for employees to obtain advanced degrees and training, the company should implement programs or opportunities to use this newly gained knowledge within the company.
Advancements and promotions should be based upon skill, education, and performance. They should not be based upon seniority or longevity with the company, political alliances, or personal preferences.

    I have been working at BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Chances to advance and acquire more education. Management can be very flexible. The gym is free!

    Cons

    This used to be a great company. Great benefits compensated for the average salaries. Benefits are now being stripped away. Salaries are still average. Worst of all, the job security is not so secure. We are becoming just another mediocre corporation.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to improve communication, reduce the number of cliques, and become more people centered.
