Thread regarding CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield layoffs

They don't care about talents?

It looks to me that this company no longer has desire to keep talents or attract new ones.
People here are dedicated to their work to the maximum and what do they get in return for their extra efforts? -- They rarely get anything.
It’s not just demotivating, it’s completely destructive to this company if you ask me.

Other thing interesting is the merit pool is skewed heavily toward those below 100% of a job’s market reference point. Why? To give the illusion of a terrific 5% or so merit increase to a workforce just out of school who didn’t realize they were underpaid to begin with when they accepted the job and now realize they have no hope of rectifying that decision once in the company. Reality: pay the workforce equitably to begin with.

We all realize no matter how good a benefits package is (and Carefirst’s is heavy with things many will never use plus the employee health insurance is higher priced than the many employer groups it covers, even small ones), benefits don’t pay the mortgage.

Do yourself a favor aspiring job seekers: your leverage with any employer is at the negotiating table pre-employment. Pay and career growth here is limited. Promises rescinded under the guise of “reorganization”. Training nearly non-existent in recent years. If you do opt to test the waters, negotiate like he-l and by all means do not take the first offer. How many times did you accept the car salesman’s first offer? Same principle applies. Buyer beware.

How about the Ambassador’s program where employees earn points toward cheap branded corporate swag in exchange for sacrificing their integrity on social media working as they do lackey work as enthusiastic hawkers and shills encouraging misplaced confidence in a brand being severely mismanaged?

And the shameless plugs to contribute out of pocket to an employee assistance fund where I might be inclined if the company wasn’t so miserly to employees and where there is little corporate restraint in spending on failed initiatives, C-suite leadership, or yet another catchy sounding program to make everyone forget about the last failed initiative. It’s outrageous audacity.

Speaking of talent, BPD has a very special talent. He talks from his a-s.

The comment about "young and cheap" is spot-on, especially regarding the newer benefits they have added.

All of the top talent is leaving. Why stay when you have other opportunities?

Everything is gear toward hiring young and cheap (tuition reimbursement, parental leave, GDP, etc). CF doesn't want top talent - they want "good enough".
