Company Culture

They are awfully greedy and they dont pay their Agents for months....

Support from management

Managment has to obey higher ups and they down play all lawsuits against them. They are doing their best but absolutely kepr OUT OF THE LOOP of Corporate. Awful Company to represent.

Freedom to work independently

Corporate buys blocks of groups and buys PROVIDERS a serious conflict of interest. Idk how they've gotten away w all their shenanigans but its definitely because they made a deal behind closed doors w Pres Obama....they're unethical and its unacceptable

Internal Communication

Its their way or the highway.

Overall compensation for your work

They change their commission structure after contracting agents because they can. It states in the contract they can change commission structure at any time. Even if you're vested 5 years....they are sneaky and unethical.

Office / Work Environment

Fake and unsupported by independent Agents. Terrible ethics

Environmental Friendliness

They went GREEN at least. But they still mail out unneeded mail...so i give em a 3 on this.

Work-Life Balance

Independent captive agents can work their own hours... The only good thing about em.

Company Image

Ppl get frustrated w their lack of claims accepted.

Challenging Work

Not challenging at all.

Inclusive / Diverse

They don't seem too mulit cultural in my opinion. Hardly ANY Blacks or Latinos are hired but many indians and Muslims along w White being the majority in this Company.

Support from management

Leadership is the good old boy system no matter what they claim it still is. Reviews and raises are not impartial and people who work their butts off are not treated as well as others who don't.

Teamwork

The actual people on the floor work hard and help each other.

Internal Communication

Some areas get information while others do not. Training is very outdated.

Gender Equality

Still more men than women in leadership roles, even when a woman is more qualified.

Attitude towards older colleagues

If you cannot produce as you get older, be prepared to catch a lot of ugliness from leadership.

Career Development

Again, they claim this is done; however it is not done. Favorites of leadership will get an opportunity when someone who works harder and produces more is not given the chance.

Overall compensation for your work

Reviews are subjective so if a manager doesn't like someone who produces more with less errors will not receive the same as others. Also budget only allows for so much % increase which also makes it difficult to receive fair raises.

Office / Work Environment

Very stressfull. Leadership demands more and more. Additional work is assigned but no help is given. No raises if not at review time.

Environmental Friendliness

There is recycling

Work-Life Balance

Leadership believes your job is more important than a sick child which makes people scramble to find someone to care for a sick child. Due to Obamacare there is no more overtime as we would not be able to meet deadlines.

Company Image

No. I hated going in every day. The overall atmosphere of all employees is the same. Many call FloridaBlue the stress factory.

Job Security

In production areas there are many requirements that many new hires are not able to handle. The turnaround is too high.

Handicapped Accessibility

Not enough for the number of employees

Workplace Safety

This is something they do take serious

Challenging Work

Work can be very difficult, especially when system errors occur which have claims process incorrectly. This can take anywhere from 6 months to a year or more to make corrections to a system problem. During this time claims continue to process incorrectly and increased workload that teams already are already too thin.

Inclusive / Diverse

They claim they are but it isn't.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Really sit down and listen to employees who do the work instead of making changes that don't work. Better raises.

What I like about the company

The best was paychecks. Good people under me.

What I dislike about the company

Leadership is horrible. For a health insurance company, they charge employees too much for it. Raises are not fair. In the 35 years I worked there the following was taken away due to budget cuts:
1. Free health insurance for life after retiring with your age and years equal 90.
2. An entire week of PTO.
3. Free lunches at Thanksgiving and Christmas.
4. Employee Christmas gifts became something employees cannot always use.
5. Incentives monthly, quarterly and yearly.
So much more.
