    I have been working at Florida Blue full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A very nice campus, and comfortable work environment. The employee benefits include little-known discounts around town that are very nice. It's easy to see and understand the impact of your work on the company.

    This company instills a sense of confidence in it's employees that the company is reliable and trustworthy.

    Cons

    The equipment most employees work with is antiquated and poor. Our team has budget for the nicest equipment available, but there are many networking problems with new technology.

    This company, in many regards, has fallen to several common pitfalls of corporations this size. The tedious business processes involving new employee onboarding makes it a painful chore to manage a team. Acquiring resources is far too challenging here.

    Employees are often unaware of the company's landscape as a whole, and only get to know the part they work in.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to put pressure on the value of the everyday work environment, and the processes involving staffing. Most of my minor discontentment with the organization stems from our staffing processes.

    Pros

    Employees are mostly nice.

    Cons

    Have to wait a couple of years to get paid your commissions if at all. They will fight to find a reason not to pay you. Company is very dishonest. All they care about is money. They don't care about their employees at all. They just want you to sell. Horrible work environment. Management does not care. Customers are treated badly.

    Advice to Management

    You gained customers from other insurers that left the Marketplace but you lost your moral compass.

    Pros

    Excellent Financial Standing. Who knows what will happen with repeal and replace. No more money down the drain with the formerly uninsured

    Cons

    Cronyism at it's best. It's not what you know, it's who you know. The same characters and the same plot of 20+ years doing the same thing but expecting a different outcome

    Advice to Management

    Bring down the kingdoms and queendoms. Hire the most qualified people and listen to them. Eradicate cronyism.
