    I have been working at Aetna

    Pros

    Choose the right department and you may be good..weekends off .....Accrue PTO from the first day of employment

    Cons

    Horrible benefits
    Salary is low
    No incentives
    Training is not good
    Time off is difficult

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to take some classes on how to be an effective supervisor, promoting individuals who don't have the proper skills just doesn't cut it.

    I worked at Aetna full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    For the ambitious person there are many opportunities for advancement and cross training. They work hard to find build and keep top talent.

    Cons

    With over 150 years behind them there is a constant struggle to get leaner. Which means that there is always staff cutting. This can lead to a "save my job" mentality in some management and staff.

    I worked at Aetna full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed being able to work with my clients with no barriers. Plenty of time allowed to work with clients vs. some places allow only 10-20 minutes per call, we had 30 minutes +. Work load was manageable.

    Cons

    Differing management styles, while even on the same team. Technology was old and limiting. No opportunity for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask and listen to employees before making changes to see if it will be beneficial for the people actually using the technology.
