I worked at Aetna full-time (more than 5 years)Pros
Aetna excels at work life balance in that they encourage people to work around their life, they will make effort to allow working mobile, off peak hours, whatever to get work done. Aetna makes big investments for the future of the company and employees, for the long run so project work is very well thought out; they will only do something if they can do it "right".Cons
Compensation and bonuses aren't that great. If you value getting solid experience in a large company with excellent systems and processes then good place, but you most likely won't be compensated very well for it.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Aetna.Interview Details
I was a transitioning veteran who first made contact with an Aetna recruiter through a Virtual Career Fair online. About three weeks later I was contacted by an Aetna recruiter who conducted a behavioral style phone interview with me. About 60 days later Aetna asked me to come to their corporate office in Hartford, CT for face-to-face interview. I interviewed with five recruiters and one hiring manager over a span of 3 hours. Great experience.Interview Questions
