Not worth the higher-end pay for local entry-level jobs in the area; redefined micromanagement!

Pros

Benefits package and pay scale

Cons

Mangement and Corporate's heavy hand in even the minutia of your workday.

Advice to Management

Allow outstanding performers, to perform. Increasing production is not achieved by calling meetings - you must let people produce.

    Pros

    Very financially stable, non-investor owned, family-oriented, a leader in health care insurance innovations, generous benefits. The pay depends on the area.

    Cons

    One is the massive bureaucracy which really gets in the way of the speed of business. The other is it is painfully obvious that people who work in the Chicago HQ receive preferential treatment regarding promotions. Can be hard on morale in the 3 other Blues. Nobody dares to bring it up out of fear of sounding "negative."

  2. One of the best jobs for Abilene

    Pros

    Great flexiblity with your work schedule, and good performance can lead to the oppurtunity to work from home. The benefits are excellent, medical, dental, vision, 401(k), pension, 18+ days of paid time off plus holidays, and tutiton assistance of up to $5400 a year. The company puts a lot of money into training so they give you as many resources as they can to help you suceed. I haven't heard of any non-salaried employees being laid off.

    Cons

    I'm not going to lie, the work is boring and very tedious, but you are well compensated for it. Salary and management positions do not come open often in the Abilene location, so the competetion is high for a promotion in that area. If you put in the time and effort you can easily move into some higher paying hourly positions though. Also, there is a lot of promotion oppurtunity if you are willing to move to another location. There can be quite a bit of required overtime in peak months.
