    I worked at Florida Blue full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good Pay and Benefits for employees. Great pay and benefits for executives and middle managers. Good technology.

    Cons

    You have to go along to get along. All promotions, hiring and firing are based on who you know not your skills. The politics are viscous and that blocks innovation. If you suggest an idea without your boss’ support and approval; there will be retribution. This is particularly true in the IT department. Last year an IT executive fired 8 middle managers and then bragged in a staff meeting how she got revenge on her enemies.

    Advice to Management

    When you delegate responsibility, delegate equivalent authority! Empower your front line and middle managers to make decisions according to their responsibilities. Making decisions by consensus means nobody is held accountable. Just because somebody has worked there for 20 years, does not mean they are competent.

    I worked at Florida Blue as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The co workers and some of the managers were very pleasant to work with and for.

    Cons

    Some managers were not pleasant to work for. They treat their contractors like garbage! I was told on Friday 2/1/2013 that I had a contract extension until July, 6 2013. I came to work that following Monday worked my shift and was not told anything was changing. I received a call from my recruiter that night saying my contract had been terminated immediately! My original contract was not supposed to be up until 02/15/2013. I could have been transferred to a different department because my old position was available, however because I was terminated I can no longer go back to that company for a year.

    Advice to Management

    They need to actually give people notice that the contract is ending even if we are just contractors. It also would be nice if they check to see if there are other job opportunities for us before they just terminate us for no reason!
