    Benefits are very good, lots of PAid time off offered. Medical dental pharmacy and vision offered as well as a 401k plan from day one.

    For an Insurance company the benefits package is terrible. You are able to buy extra vacation days at the beginning of each year which is a positive, PTO days are very few. To be able to buy your days is a positive.

    Deductible's seem high, but plan is okay overall.

    The best thing was the amount of choices their 401k had. Considering they are an insurance company they didn't offer the best possible insurance. Their customers had better coverage than they offered to their employees. They also seemed to experiment with their employee's benefits.

    Read all the fine print before using Cigna

    First company I've worked for without a traditional co-pay plan. They do put in $750 to your HRA and multiple ways to earn more incentive dollars, but the premiums went up as did the deductible...$1625 for single person. The cap is 3250 or so, which protects against the catastrophic. Short term disability is free and it pays 75%, but you have to burn through 5 PTO days first. 401k match is decent, but you aren't fully vested until 2 years. PTO is given after 90 days and you get 3 weeks off which is advanced to you for the whole year, a definite plus. Depending on your department and band level, you're limited to 10 call offs in a given rolling year, so try to save those days for when you really need them. The medical insurance field is changing, so these deductible plans are becoming the norm. Overall, benefits package falls short of all previous employers, but they're not awful, either.

    Health insurance is sub-par. Annual bonus is good.

    Very expensive medical benefits, especially considering this is their core business. Options were limited to company-provided plans (no competitor plans available), and customer service was difficult to deal with compared to competitors. I opted out in favor of coverage under another plan that I was eligible for at no cost. Paternity time off is a great benefit and they have offered that for a long time.
