    Pros

    Structured. Recruit above average IT talent. Healthy work life balance.

    Cons

    With a company so large, it can be easy to feel like a tiny fish in a big pond. Work with your manager to align your current work or education with your long term career goals.

    I have been working at Cigna full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work arrangements in other work locations

    Cons

    Flexible work arrangements vary according to location
    Some employees in Dallas office with managers in other locations are able to work from work
    Employees with managers in Dallas office are unable to work from home
    Special treatment with certain employees
    High turnover rate

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees equally and offer work from home options or flexible schedules...such as 10hrs a day 4 days a week...rather then 8hrs a day 5 days a week

    Pros

    There are no Pros. Cigna provides no career development and deter employees that strive to build their career.

    Cons

    Completely mislead in interview with ability to work from home and even worse bonus structure. Offer letter stated bonus eligible but manager said I did not qualify because I was too new. Questioned Performance Review process to Director, HR, and manager none of them could explain how bonuses are decided and what the criteria was. My review and other team members were copy and pasted into the comment section just with Names changed. Director supported manager and stated this is a standard practice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is awful. 1on1's are worthless and cannot provide answers to detailed questions about compensation and reviews. Provide no incentive or motivation to work hard because performance reviews are not personalized and provide no feedback on strengths or weaknesses, areas to improve, or proper steps going forward to improve grading.

    Pros

    Competitive salary, great benefits, growth potential

    For my particular position it was tough because I'm a very outdoorsy person and I worked in the call center . The job is a good one.

    Pros

    The company allows employees to work from home for many positions. The pay is competitive. The employee retention rate is good. The work environment was pleasant.

    Cons

    As with many companies, promotions can be hard to get unless you are willing to leave and come back. I did not think the benefits package was as good as it ought to be.

    I worked at Cigna full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Compensation, PTO, work-life were all positives. I made great money for a long time here & believed I was truly part of a family for the 1st 5 years of my career with Cigna.

    Cons

    When the market changed due to Health Care Reform and times got tough, disengagement set in. Leadership didn't know how to fix it and focused only on profit, making work in the field extremely difficult. My immediate boss made a lot of promises he couldn't keep and when he was questioned about fulfilling those promises and reasons for decisions, he became defensive and I lost trust in him throughout the process. Feeling like I should get HR involved crossed my mind several times, but feared he would be fired and didn't want that responsibility. Instead he found a mistake on my part and filed for my termination. HR treated me like a criminal and my 8 year successful sales career was over in the blink of an eye.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good people make mistakes under poor management, and solutions are easily found with engagement and efforts from leadership. But consistent character issues in people who have been put in leadership positions are going to be the downfall of this organization.

    Pros

    vacation days no nights no weekends paid holiday

    Cons

    health benefits--get on welfare its better work at home--for a company that promotes it and wants you to be at home, good luck my boss and upper management says no they need people on house to stuff letters into envelopes, its more of a controlled thing then trust. dont go over their heads, they will talk about you behind your back. hiring people with no experience but pay them way more than you make.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    look at the guidelines, the use of the ethics line--thats such a joke and waste of time. instead of preaching values--actually do what you preach. ADA guidelines, im thinking about contacting lawyer for legal advice on what your ethic people said to me on the phone. the CEO, maybe stop lining your pockets with millions of dollars and give raises to everyone like the ceo of aetna did to get.
