    I worked at Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The flexibility and stimulating environment. They have truly embraced sharing work space and work from home policies. I worked with multiple disciplines in a very collaborative matrix environment

    Cons

    Fear of change. Many of the employees there started their careers there and have stayed. They have grown accustomed to the same processes and methods. When an improvement or optimization is needed, the teams are very reluctant to adapt.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in training your employees specially the management teams on the current methods and ideologies. For example, all supervisors should attend courses on managing remote teams, cultivating motivators, and minimizing de-motivators.
