    I have been working at Premera Blue Cross full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Premera's leadership has an excellent understanding of the healthcare crisis our country is in, and is actively moving the company toward being a market leader under the new world under mandated Healthcare Reform legislation.

    Cons

    Not a technologically agile company, though becoming better at it all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Pretty hard on mid-level management. Mentor your people at all levels - manager through VP.

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

    Pros

    Good people for the most part. Location is pretty good, Mountlake Terrace, just off 99 (and I-5). Work hours (at least for IT staff) tend to be pretty flexible. Good benefits, especially WRT to health insurance. Premera actually does (or did) have a real, funded pension system in addition to a 401(k).

    Cons

    Rigid, inflexible "grid" management. Posters around the company used to say, "Be a silo buster!" Slow to adopt new technologies: change == risk; risk == bad, ergo change is bad. All in all, fairly typical for an insurance company.

    Advice to Management

    Don't Fear Change.
