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

    Pros

    I have been working at Premera for 3 months now and love going to work every day. The people are amazing. Friendly and are there for one another. Tons of opportunity and leaders help employees reach their full potential to become the best version of themselves. Management is friendly and approachable. Great benefits package, flexibility working remotely, and great work/life balance. Premera does a great job valuing their employees. People who land at Premera are very lucky. :-)

    Cons

    I don't have any cons to share.

    I have been working at Premera Blue Cross full-time

    Pros

    good benefit, good PTO (sick days come from your PTO), work life balance, and really good managers and good people that i really care about.

    Cons

    - many bad managers and team leaders out there just because they've been with the company for 20+ years. - more bosses than leaders - knowledge over technology. good luck trying to change someone's mind who's been with the company for so long. - lots of turnovers in HR department that is hard to trust. - everyone's a director at premera. we literally have unnecessary amount of directors.
