Reviews

Company Culture

Culture is what BCBSTX is all about.

Support from management

1000000%, no question or doubt that will not ever support me.

Teamwork

One of the most team-oriented environments I've ever had the pleasure of working with.

Freedom to work independently

They welcome and encourage it.

Internal Communication

You're never left wondering what's going on, they are extremely transparent.

Gender Equality

We have what is known as BRG's, Business Resource Groups. Asian, African American Latin, Veteran and of course LGBTQ. BCBSTX strands behind each and supports each equally, gender equality is just the daily norm for us.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Always positive and encouraging w/o any form of doubt.

Career Development

A casual conversation with a former boss on my first half year review has turned into a definite career path with not only encouragement from my bosses, but helps d guidance from my peers.

Overall compensation for your work

I can personally say that I've been not only recognized for doing my job, but also compensated for moments my management team, supervisor and peers when they noticed I've gone over and beyond to ensure this are done flawlessly. Bottom line, they care.

Office / Work Environment

I can't say anything other than it is awesome, period!

Environmental Friendliness

I can check the box on this that they are doing their part to help take care if and protect the environment as much as they can.

Work-Life Balance

I came back to Texas with a purpose, which was to help take care of my dying father. During my interview "work-life balance " was brought up, and i addressed head on my concerns with that statement. When my father did pass, the only thing I got from my managers was "you stay home for as long as you need to deal with what you need to do, tonget you and your mom thru this time. Your job will be here when you come back, whenever that is!"
BCBS TX means every word when they say "we believe in work-life balance!"

Company Image

Positive within the community and outlying areas.

Job Security

I feel very confident in my job and long term affiliation with BCBSTX.

Handicapped Accessibility

Yes, at every turn throughout the bldg you are reminded of handicap accessibility.

Workplace Safety

First and foremost, and I've heard of no workplace incidents in my short time here.

Challenging Work

Always, the challenge, and challenges outside of my comfort zone are always landing in my lap from those encouraging me to take new steps outside the box!

Inclusive / Diverse

Aside from the military, I've never been more impressed with a company and strong commitment to diversity in the workplace.

Suggestions for improvement

  • None at the moment.

What I like about the company

The people, career possibilities, encouragement, resources and their commitment to diversity and inclusion.

What I dislike about the company

Lack of Innovation in some of the processes and technologies.
