    Pros

    They provide very good training and I was lucky enough after a year to work from home. They provided everything I needed such as my computer, internet connection, supplies and more. The medical benefits are much better than what I have now.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, all of the work at home processors got laid off in November but they did pay us through the end of December.

    I have been working at Cigna full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    no perks, stressful environment, poor moral, low salary

    Cons

    I have been working for Cigna Home Delivery for 25 years next month and still have not received a list to choose a gift and they informed me three weeks before the list should arrive. Well December 18th is my day. This is just one thing along with a very large list of problems working for Cigna Home Delivery

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would like David Cordani to see this. No one ever listened to me about problems at cigna home delivery.. Everything gets swept under the rug and that's is so wrong!

    Pros

    There is absolutely NOTHING good to share

    Cons

    Lack of Leadership, poor structure toward meeting customer service goals, NOT customer services centric although they claim to be, employees are at the lowest of their concern, Supervisors are less educated and trained then a pre-schooler.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get the training and education before taking on the job. Over time, the truth will come out as you lead others. Until then, you will be am embarrassment to the company.

    Current Employee - Infrastructure Engineer Senior Specialist in Philadelphia, PA
    Current Employee - Infrastructure Engineer Senior Specialist in Philadelphia, PA

    I have been working at Cigna full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Entry level position begins as an associate in their Technical Early Career Development Program (TECDP) that extends the first 3 years of you career. The offer constant training and networking opportunities and expose you to a large existing network. The company overall is becoming more innovative and bringing their infrastructure closer to the cutting edge of technology so there is plenty of work to do.

    Cons

    Their IT department contains 4,000+ employees and consultants so most roles are very segmented to specific tasks or areas of responsibilities. It is very process heavy and requires multiple approvals to get things done. The teams are fairly efficient as a result of this structure, but it does prevent me from branching out into new technologies without the need to transfer teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice if teams had dedicated time set aside each week (maybe 2 hours) to focus on innovation and process improvement for their area. I see plenty of things that could be improved, however there isn't enough time in the day to accomplish them effectively and more formally.

    Pros

    If you are under 40yo then you likely will get a job offer. If you are starting your career, then Cigna has a good traiing program for you as a stepping stone to advance outside of Cigna.
    LGBT friendly -- in fact it is celebrated.
    Good vacation policies

    Cons

    Cronyism
    Terrible Health benefits (Extremely High Deductible health)

    Pros

    You receive more education and experience on how to survive in a office atmosphere. Especially being in a call center.

    Cons

    Not very flexible, shift changes all the time. You may work weekends, and hoildays. if askes to leave early on a , dont do it! You wont receive your double time pay. If your under poor management it becomes a nightmare going into work. Stressful atmosphere. Your always being judge by coworkers and upper management based on your call times not on how well you take care of the customer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on your skill set first before critiquing your employees. Less drama and gossiping and more praising and acknowledging your employees.
