    I have been working at Aetna

    Pros

    The company is concerned about the health and wellness of its employees and offers many incentives for eating well and being active. Internal job movement is encouraged, and employees can submit their resume on the Intranet and be contacted for job openings that match their skills set. Over 20% of the company's employees are teleworkers.

    Cons

    In the field in which I work, Aetna does not have many opprotunities for advancement. However, there are many opportunities to grow if I choose to leave my field and stay with the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask for employee suggestions on a regular basis.

    Very poorly managed. Information is not relayed efficiently and management is biased and plays favorites.

    I have been working at Aetna full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Benefits are great, promotions to earn cash incentives for participating in certain health improvement programs.

    Cons

    Underqualified management staff. Most cases of advancement or other career opportunities offered are often biased with heavy favoritism. Systems operations are constantly being changed and several systems are mandatory to be implemented with insufficient training on how to utilize. Employees are often laid off for not using systems which are sometimes not required to perform certain tasks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please offer more thorough and detailed training when utilizing new systems for operations. Better qualified managers whom do not play favorites.

    Pros

    One of the best reasons to work for Aetna is the opportunity to make a difference each day. No two days were ever the same.

    Cons

    They need stronger leadership in the local markets to achieve consistent success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They local markets are what make the company and it imperative that you have the right people in those positions.

    I have been working at Aetna

    Pros

    Good benefits package and ability to earn bonus. There is a relatively good support mechanism in staving off the monotony of the position.

    Cons

    It can be relatively disheartening when your manager obviously plays favorites, and not with those who are most deserving or have the best performance. There is a tendency for back-stabbing and gossip, which can have an effect on behavior in the entire surrounding area. You can advance through mediocrity as long as you can be appropriately obsequious to management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would take a closer look at the survey results regarding direct manager performance and demonstrate that there can be consequences to poor management at the local level.
