    Pros

    Good work life balance and great connections to make. The company tries to listen to what the employees have to say.

    Cons

    A lot of processes are extremely over complicated and it is difficult to change anything as so many people have worked there for so long and are not willing to change.

    I worked at Blue Cross (MI)

    Pros

    Great flexible employment environment. Working together as a family

    Cons

    Too much escalations in email communication including upper managers in every little request. No process in place or methodology in handling incongruous requests leads to employee burn out

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management can do better to create a balanced life for employees by establishing integration processes between business and IT in prioritizing the incoming workload and having dedicated teams for operational issues vs project support

    Good company to work for, but a lot of red tape.

    I have been working at Blue Cross (MI) full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are great. Pretty good work-life balance. Strong leaders are sprinkled throughout the company.

    Cons

    Compensation model is changing for the worse. Communication from the top down is not always clear.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Solicit more feedback from the front line employees about what things really need addressing. Reward high performing employees with more pay.
