Worked there for almost 20 years. Hated it for about 14.
Financial Analyst (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – May 3, 2012
I started off in operations (claims and customer service) and ended up in the finance area. Most of the people I worked with were just trying to get by, like me, so we got along okay. I had at least dozen supervisors, managers, directors over the years and I trusted about three of them. No matter where I worked, there were always a few people who were super cozy with the bosses, and those were the people you couldn't trust. Most departments have a coddled princess and her hand maidens that get special treatment. They are the eyes and ears of the managers, and they get all the easiest job assignments and eventually become managers themselves. Get on their bad side and you'll end up doing most of their work. It's not just an operations and finance problem either. The whole company is super sneaky, and the worst people end up with the best jobs. Honestly, if I made a list of the ten worst people I've ever known, seven or eight of them would be people from Regence.
