    Pros

    Great company and always an answer for any questions. If you like team environment then this is the company for you.

    Cons

    Health care plans could have more reasonable deductibles for thier employees and thier families.. depending on the department and position in not much else to think negatively.

    Advice to Management

    So far company is great since I've been here over a year. Keep up the great company ethics and ways of handling of business.

    Pros

    Work at home opportunities, career development, tuition reimbursement, 401k contribution match, sufficient PTO (although stressful to catch up when returning from 1 week off). With each opportunity I've taken over the last 10 years, I have enjoyed my teammates and management more and more. If you set clear goals, management will offer stretch assignments and development opportunities to get where you want to be in the company. Easy to impress if you make a little effort to think outside the box or help the team succeed.

    Cons

    Entry level teams tend to have more low performing employees and management, because the company aggressively pushes for promotion from within (even to the point of forced promotion). The intranet HR site claims that salaries are based on market value % and within 3-5 years of high performance you should typically be around 100% market value. I personally have had excellent reviews for years and am still only around 75% of market value, which makes me feel like my extra effort is not appreciated. On a side note, if you are camera shy you're probably not a fan of management's latest development of enforcing use of webcams in meetings. Also, although they have made a push for technology improvements, the claim processing systems are still very glitchy. (On the plus side, at least they'll require claim processors to apply the manual workarounds! If the system worked perfectly, why would they need so many employees?)

    Advice to Management

    Would love to see more incentives and development of "lower level" employees to encourage a good organizational foundation. If all strong claim processors (for example) are all promoted, there are more errors made at first touch by the less developed employees causing more clean up and follow up calls. Also, I would love to see stronger employees given more mentoring roles and less micromanagement. Sometimes it feels like a strong performer who is willing to take on new projects is targeted for all projects and difficult scenarios to avoid confrontation with other employees. Please spread out the work and/or provide extra compensation for those high performers!

    Pros

    good place to work with some great benefits. Medical, dental and vision. Great co workers and management Good vacation time and flexible work hours.

    Cons

    Nothing much to say about the Cons. The office is little crowdy and some times management needs to be little flexible on work from home.

    Advice to Management

    I enjoyed working at Cigna. and I recommend the management to keep on being transparent and keep the employees updated on the company. Keep going

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunity to advance to other positions. Pretty good benefits and co-workers.

    Pros

    Great people, products, comp plan, great collegiate atmosphere. This is a fantastic place to work for anyone interested in hard work, ethical business, diversity focused, and pay for performance.

    Cons

    Quarterly focused, high growth demands, in sales and sales management this is also a pro. The only drawback for people managers is the self service "everything". This is a company you better find a good coach/mentor as you'll need it to be successful.

    Pros

    Flexible working hours, management doesn't hoover around you as long as you get your work done.

    Cons

    Terrible health benefits, raises are not guaranteed, management expects you to learn a lot in a short amount of time.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees for the amount of work they're doing.
