    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Excellus BlueCross BlueShield full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The pay is decent and they have great benefits if your part of their click, or are a friend!

    Cons

    Bias, Prejudice, and if your minority you have no chance of moving up or placed in a leadership role of any sort. They hire friends unqualified and are clicked up. They use the same tactic to keep all minorities down and also being open & honest will damage your reputation. They cover up for each other when they know they are doing wrong, and I will NEVER recommend anyone to work for this company!

    Advice to Management

    Advice to all superiors, nothing will change unless you break up these clicks and allow qualified individuals a chance to make it a great place to work. Exposing supervisors, managers, and Directors will only hurt people whom are trying to be successful. They gang up on minority individuals and write us up to cover themselves from the dirt they do and use that to keep us quiet! Basically it’s working like a slave, head down, and no words or opinions!!!!
