Company culture

Very divisive

Teamwork

Peers work well together, management however shows favoritism among employees

Communication

Too much research required to provide accuracy. Factual information sometimes in the press before released internally.

Office/Work Environment

Constant moving and reorganization causes frustration and interrupts productivity.

Eco-consciousness

Recycle encouraged but not demanded

  • Employee

Company culture

The culture is okay. On every note, BCBSM goes through the motions but doesn't necessary hit the mark.

Support from Management

Management is weak. It is a club. It is pretty much autonomous until you go against the grain. In other words, they have nothing to say unless you do something wrong or someone doesn't like you.

Level of Autonomy

Autonomy is good as long as you stay within the norm. Venture out and you are a radical, unless you have been tapped as "the golden boy".

Suggestions for improvement

  • You hire the best people. Unfortunately, you don't listen to what they have to say. Everybody in the company knows that when asked to rate the company, you always give 5s or don't see your bonus. It is a joke.

What I like about the company

Used to be an excellent team oriented Department.

What I dislike about the company

Current leadership is trending away from actually conducting investigations and toward being a Collections Department.
