More Pros and Cons
  1. "nice"

    4.0
    Current Employee - Salesforce Developer 

    I have been working at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan full-time

    Pros

    A benefit to Blue Cross Blue Shield is that the majority of healthcare providers and doctors will accept the insurance. That makes it easy to find a convenient place to seek treatment. BCBS also comes with the financial strength and reliability of being a well-established company with decades of proven experience. The size of the company benefits customers through its multiple healthcare and HSA plan options.

    Cons

    The size of the company can also be a drawback, especially since it is broken into regional companies that, in many ways, function separately. That can make it difficult to find specific information on the BCBS website. Customers must instead track down their regional company, then seek information from that organization. The size of the company can also create issues with customer service. It can be difficult to track down the correct people who can help you with a given problem.

    Neutral Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Benefits and pay. Able to work from home

    Cons

    Don’t expect encouragement or positive reinforcement from managers/team leaders. Use threatening tactics such as taking your WFH status if you are not meeting goals. In this position you are more of a telemarketer than professional. Can be rewarding but the focus is so much on the numbers it it mind numbing at times. If it wasn’t for the pay or benefits I would have left a long time ago.
