    Pros

    Great place to work. Richardson location has cafeteria and credit union on sight making it covenant for the employees. There is also an on sight work out facility as well as a running track near the building.

    Cons

    The healthcare industry is constantly changing with new rules and regulations and the companies need to make their changes to remain in compliance. Definitely a company of who you know to get anything done. If they don't like you, I have seen them ignore you/your request.

    Advice to Management

    Better planning of time and resources needs to happen to make these annual transitions smoother. Stop procrastinating and waiting to the last minute causing everything to be a fire drill. Leave the politics out of the office and do the right thing.

    Pros

    - Great work - life balance
    - My boss is amazing, we really have a relationship
    - I get to touch different projects instead of being just stuck on one project

    Cons

    BCBS doesn't pay at a top tier level when considering how much work you can be responsible for. This is the only flaw that is very noticeable. The other flaw is the culture ... it's pretty thick, however, changes have been underway since the new Affordable Care Act has come into play.

    Advice to Management

    - accept and try some new ideas, it's time to change the culture
    - pay employees their market value

    Pros

    The people are one of the best reasons to be employed here. There company values diversity which helps create a positive environment. If you easily adapt to change this will be a great employer for you.

    Cons

    The pay is considerably low. You may consider the benefits from the company as a plus though. There is also a lot of competition for advancement when a position becomes available.

    Advice to Management

    More focus in raising compensation and lowering the overt competitive nature of the company.

    Pros

    Good management support. Relaxed work environment. Very professional and diverse employees with amazing training and learning opportunities and resources. Good benefits for higher education pursuing employees as they provide education assistance and excellent reference online materials.

    Cons

    Very slow promotion and low pay rate. Its better to get experience somewhere else, then apply and bargain for a good starting salary rather than waiting for raise and annual salary increase. So apparently new fresh graduates getting in will end up working in extreme low salary than comparable market companies possibly causing tendency to find jobs elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Pay for IT professionals better or at least competitive as compared to other companies in market. Presumably targeting a low pay rate doesn't ultimately morally boost the employees to stay within the company for a long time.

    Pros

    Decent pay and lots of opportunities for overtime. Very good at training you and preparing you as much as possible.

    Cons

    Upper management makes a lot of changes for the "good of the company" without much regard to the employees.
