    Pros

    I love it here.
    I learn a lot and they pay us well.
    They actually care about their work and the members who see the work.

    Cons

    None in particular.
    I'd really like to be an employee and not just a contractor soon.

    Advice to Management

    You're doing just fine.

  8. No training and treated unfairly

    Pros

    My short time I was there I was involved in food drives and team building activities enjoyed the work environment.

    Cons

    Was told I would get trained it didn't happen, leadership need to understand people are human and not just numbers you can't pick favorites and fire people who do not get the training needed. I wish I would've been able to keep my position I really loved working there.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to invest in people and treat people like they are human.

  9. Rewarding company that promotes from within and lots of other benefits

    Pros

    Health insurance, dental, and vision
    Typical work schedule of M-F, weekends and holidays off
    Promotes from within
    Cool programs, can take college classes onsite...

    Cons

    Unit Leader over you, then Team Leader over you and the UL, then Manager of you and the UL and the TL, etc.

    So, it becomes like the movie Office Space where the management can continue to hound you over the same things...a very capitalist workplace

  10. Everything that glitters......

    Pros

    Great people and great potential. They have excellent benefits & business/personal workshops for employees.

    Cons

    It's not what you know at times, it's who. Union? What Union?

    Advice to Management

    Place yourself in employees shoes at times. Push personal favorites aside & think business all the time.

    Pros

    BCBSM is committed to being the industry healthcare leader in the Greater Metropolitan Detroit area. They emphasize members first. They are very involved in the community. BCBSM is an organization where they believe in knowledge is power. They are truly an equal opportunity employer.

    Cons

    BCBSM could be more diverse. They could also streamline some of their processes. This would allow for better efficiencies across the entire firm.
