    I have been working at Cigna full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I was compensated well and had flexibility to work from home

    Cons

    I got blindsided with a job elimination with no severance after fifteen years of severance. Too many layoffs and the review process is too rigid. They have to select people who are under performing even if there aren't any.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This organization spends too much time in the vertical world. There is very little room for input from mid level and front line employees. Very much a top down organization. Lots of time wasted trying to control approvals

    Pros

    Ability to move around to different roles within the company every few years, which keeps work interesting. Competitive compensation.

    Cons

    As I've seen with many large companies - need to deal with 'corporate politics' & can be lots of red tape when trying to deliver your project.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company needs to change its processes / approach to work so it can be more nimble & enable it's employees to deliver quicker.

    I have been working at Cigna full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    While there is a lot of room for growth within the company some people worthy of it do get passed over due to favoritism. Some have worked hard and it is not paying off. If you play the game you will move. Work life balance and the managers working with you in the event of something unexpected happening is amazing.

    Cons

    being passed over for opportunities after working towards goals managers set for you and having others picked who put less work in. The health benefits are not the best either, which is funny since we offer them, I have worked on accounts that have better benefits than i do. It's a huge let down and hit to moral.

    I worked at Cigna as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    There was definitely a good work-life balance when I worked there. Granted, I was just an intern, but I never felt like those around me were too stressed out with working very much off normal hours.

    Cons

    A ton of bureaucracy as is expected of an organization of this size. Most people that I know had to wait 3 weeks before getting developer rights to do any actual developer work on their machines.
