Descent place to work if management becomes more considerate and approachable.
sales & operations (Former Employee) –  Topeka, KSJuly 16, 2018
with the previous ceo, the company was dated; with the new ceo change is coming and moving in the right direction. management needs to be more supportive and understanding of the hard work employees put into doing their jobs and the time and energy it takes to get there. with the new ceo it will be more personable more teamwork oriented. the little people are not acknowledged in anyway for the hard work they do. with the new ceo hopefully upper management will change and become more approachable, more empathetic to employees. new ceo should be a role model for management in how to approach or engage with employees because everyone is important not just management.
Pros
employees, cafeteria
Cons
lack of support or training, lack of management support, non understanding of the job the little people do to get projects completed successfully

It was not a positive experience, in my case.
Customer Services Representative (Former Employee) –  Topeka, KSJuly 2, 2018
Training is excellent, but after that, be prepared to have almost no communication or contact with your fellow workers. The schedule is very rigid with very little margin for error.
Pros
Excellent Training
Cons
Isolation

Excellent place to work
Temporary Membership Auditor (Former Employee) –  Topeka, KSFebruary 3, 2018
A typical day at work was busy with little down time. As a temporary membership auditor we worked at our own place but were required to meet a minimum number of applications processed while upheld quality levels. Management was helpful, understanding, and professional. Workplace culture was professional and friendly, and attire was business casual for anyone under management, and jeans were allowed to be worn on Friday's. The hardest part of the job was quickly learning company guidelines and procedures to ensure members were given accurate policy information. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with a strong team that was always willing to help.
Pros
Great pay, flexible hours, rewarding work
Cons
Cafeteria was expensive, big work load

Customer Premiums Coordinator - Accounting (Current Employee) –  Topeka, KSJanuary 30, 2018
This is a good place to work especially for people who have the years of service to grandfather them into a pension. The less tenured employees have less invested in the company.

Blue...for all the wrong reasons
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Topeka, KSAugust 22, 2017
BCBSKS has a corporate culture that is stuck in the 1950's. It is not a fresh, current culture. There are policies and procedures for everything, which makes sense, since they are an insurance company,
Pros
Good benefits.
Cons
Oppressive management style

BCBSKS cares about its employees and offers many ways to grow your career. There are advancement opportunities and leadership training programs to guide you as you progress.
