    I worked at Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work life balance was pretty easy to achieve Got to meet actual decision makers across other 36 BCBS Plans The Policy and Advocacy team is top notch and was very informative upon every interaction

    Cons

    Management team has been in place for ~20 years and is very outdated in their thinking Half of the company reviews are for Blue Cross Plans and not the Association. That about sums it up... you are invisible at best and highly disliked at worst The pay and benefits are severely below market rate in Chicago and D.C. Your basically a survey taker in that any research or point of view that you build doesn’t matter - you need to ask people in Kansas and Montana what they think is right Highly political in that you’d think everyone was running for office
