    I worked at Cigna

    Pros

    Large company, good experience at seeing how one works - trying to coordinate many, many different functions across the global enterprise.

    Cons

    I don't think people managing specific divisions know what the hell they are doing. It appears that the automatic way to get promoted to one of these position is to serve time in the Cigna army by going abroad and putting in time on behalf of the company there. Sure, the experience is good for these folks, but in no way does it make them qualified to make sweeping decision across a broad range of business services in the United States.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sheeze - I wouldn't know where to begin.

    I have been working at Cigna

    Pros

    Nice building, decent pay, co-workers who are equally as miserable, and the memories of my first year there.

    Cons

    My first year at Cigna was awesome. I had a great work/life balance. Then things changed for the worse. The politics have gotten out of control, the work is too stressful, and management support is almost non-existent. The atmosphere is just very tense. Being thrown under the bus on a daily basis is not my idea of fun, and this situation is not unique to just me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just because someone has been with the company for a long time does not mean they are qualified to lead people. There is a difference between being good at one's job and navigating how to swim in shark infested waters, and being able to support staff. Nepotism is real.
