- Encourages moving around in the company.Cons
- They use a lot of contractors in IT, and working with them can be difficult.
- Didn't feel a very sense of team with everyone working so remotely.
- So much enterprise software you're constrained by.
- Very paranoid, expect to not be able to use a lot of useful sites if you come into work.

I worked at Aetna full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
I was a Coventry employee and became a part of Aetna through the acquisition. Here are some of the positives I found:
- Pay was good
- Benefits were not bad
- Good work/life balanceCons
I will just say that before Aetna acquired Coventry, I absolutely loved my job and would not have even thought of leaving. That said, Aetna came in and just start dismantling Coventry management and communication was poor. As a Manager, I had no idea what was happening with the integration or how my team would be integrated into Aetna. I was extremely discouraged by how Aetna handled the integration. You can't expect me to share your vision as a Manager when I don't know what your vision is.Advice to ManagementAdvice
I don't think you care what I think. I gave nearly a month's notice and no one from Aetna took the time to even complete an exit interview with me. Get organized and treat Coventry's employees better, they deserve it. Also, you should re-read the "Aetna wheel" as your actions don't match your own values.Doesn't RecommendPositive OutlookDisapproves of CEO
