    Good pay, good benefits, good CEO

    Poor execution of staying competitive in the market - huge layoffs in the middle of a pandemic when financial reports show millions of dollars of revenue is not a sign of a healthy company culture or business strategy

    I have been working at Premera Blue Cross full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good Benefits and free parking. That's about it.

    Cons

    The information security engineers work every day under the fear of being let go by the management. The information security director runs the department with an iron fist and will get rid of employees he doesn't like. Many talented security engineers and managers either left or got laid off. Unless you thrive in threatening and hostile work environments, avoid working for Premera's information security department. And if you are currently working for the department, my advice is you apply for a position at other companies. The job market is hot right now and, if you want to jump ship, right now is a great time.

    I worked at Premera Blue Cross full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Easy commute, good benefits, competitive wages. Plenty of opportunity to make a difference and do great work.

    Cons

    Great work isn't valued, and expectations shift in the sand. Highly reactive and punitive culture, and true leadership is rare. Priorities and direction are always changing, and too few managers are able to lead teams in strategy and execution.
