By Stephanie Pfeiffer
I’ve worked for BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina for almost 10 years. There are many reasons why I love my job. Loving what I do and where I work makes it easy to sell BlueCross to potential employees.
Working here has many benefits. Here are just a few reasons to consider hitting “apply” on one of our current openings:

BlueCross and its employees give back all year to the community. We are proud to be one of the largest corporate givers in the state. Each year, our employees give nearly $3 million to local South Carolina nonprofits. They log thousands of volunteer hours. When you work for BlueCross, you are part of something bigger.
2. Our diverse business
We are more than just a South Carolina insurance company. We have subsidiaries across the country. We employ people in more than 40 states. We are also one of the leading technology companies in the Southeast.
3. Our competitive benefits
Each part of our benefits package could be a reason to work at BlueCross. We have on-site fitness centers and cafeterias in most of our large locations. We offer subsidized health plans and free vision coverage. We have a 401(k) retirement plan with company match. We add benefits regularly.
4. Our inclusiveness
Diversity matters just as much in our workforce as it does in our business. We focus on diversity and inclusion in all we do — from age, race, gender and cultural background to diversity of thought and perspectives. We emphasize hiring those with disabilities and veterans. We work with community organizations to promote these practices.
5. Our stability
BlueCross has been in our communities for more than 75 years. You know we will continue to be here.
Candidates often ask me, “If I come in, what does my future look like? Will I be in the same job forever? Will I have the opportunity to move around and grow?” I just tell them my own story. Yes, you’ll have the opportunity to move around and grow here at BlueCross.
My favorite thing about working for BlueCross? Easy. The network of amazing people I get to work with each day.
