Aetna Internship

Summer Associate (Former Employee)
Hartford, CT

I worked at Aetna as an intern for less than a year

ProsAetna has an incredible internship program that I participated in this past summer. In addition to competitive pay and incredible housing accommodations (extended stay hotel for the summer), Aetna clearly puts a focus on making the internship experience very valuable for everyone involved. The work was relevant to the business and significant in scope. Definitely not your average coffee grabbing paper stapling type of gig.

ConsThis was my experience interning at the Hartford location (headquarters) where 150 other interns were also located. I am not sure if other interns in other locations around the globe had same experience. We did have interaction with interns at other office locations, though, and they seemed just as pleased with the internship.

Advice to Senior ManagementAdvertise this internship better! Most companies that pay interns that competitive and provide free summer housing in a hotel make headlines!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great company

Benefit Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at Aetna full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGreat company, great pay, get annual bonus based on performance. Work from home with flexible schedule. Good work/life balance. Get other perks of tons of vacation days, tuition reimbursement, money reward/incentive for participating in healthy lifestyle programs. Work is never boring.

ConsCan be too fast paced at times since it is a production environment with high expectations.

Advice to Senior ManagementI understand the need for changes to keep competing, however sometimes too much change in too little time can be hard and you lose contracts, thus losing customers.
