    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.

    I have been working at Aetna as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    The company values and culture is one that anyone would appreciate. Everyone is very inclusive and accepting of everyone else and encourage growth within the team. Managers are always on top of things and encourage you to keep growing.

    Cons

    Because it is a growing company there are still some moving parts that haven't quite fit in their place yet. There's redundancy at times and miscommunication that leads to confusion. There's still a transition that is taking time to settle in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage communication across departments. There is a need to understand what other departments are doing and how your work impacts them so there are no surprises down the line

    Pros

    Great coworkers, The office culture is good. Can work from home many days a week. Good PTO time off and benefits.

    Cons

    Leadership is so so. The managers should just let people do their jobs. Opportunity to learn new things but you must make the effort. There is very little formal training offered. You have to make things happen for yourself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your employees a chance to grow.

    Pros

    Connecting with like minded co-workers who are also trying to make the best of it under trying circumstances

    Cons

    Office Culture: They like to display the facade of cultural & corporate political correctness while implementing a very condescending attitude toward their work force. This was demonstrated by the way management would interact with employees who they were responsible for managing on a higher level, the crappy group health insurance benefits offered the employees from a company that is in the business of health insurance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wouldn't you want your entire workforce to be out there bragging about how great their own group medical coverage is.? Especially when you are in the business of selling and servicing health insurance? Yes, it would "cost more" but look at the "ripple effect" of all that good advertising and goodwill generated by your work force !!
