    Pros

    Palmetto GBA is an great organization to work for. They are affiliated with BCBS of SC.

    Cons

    Healthcare today is hit or miss. It is not about Palmetto GBA; but the new administration is making it difficult to feel secure in our positions at PGBA.

    Advice to Management

    There are many types of personalities. Managers are generally open-minded and willing to assist their employees.

    Pros

    Parent company is BCBSSC and as a work at home employee, their's not a lot of micro-management. The company encourages you to recognize your co-workers and your ideas are not summarily shut down. Benefits are affordable and their matching is very good at 6 percent.

    Cons

    The annual incentives are not that great, especially when you do not live in the state where the company actually resides. Not a lot of tele-work positions so, unless you're willing to re-locate, no advancement options.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize we all don't live in the same State and provide tools and opportunities to grow in one's career.

    Pros

    Good benefits packages and incentive programs for the employees and their families. Offers work from home positions for some jobs.

    Cons

    Training was horrible. The first two weeks were spent in training that didn't even pertain to us. Then we spent another two weeks of training that was still inadequate.

    Advice to Management

    Give your employees the proper training to do their jobs effectively. Hold people accountable for their actions. Listen to your front line employees when they come to you with concerns.

    Pros

    The work was interesting and the staff was nice. I enjoyed my time there.

    Cons

    There were a lot of layers of management (not that it's unexpected in an organization that size) so communication between levels and departments wasn't always great.
