Fulfillment is dependent on having a great manager, not the actual work

I worked at Aetna full-time (more than a year)

Pros

-work/life balance
-tons of opportunities to move upwardly and laterally if you work in headquarters

Cons

At an organization with 30,000+ employees, it's a crapshoot on whether you'll land in a fulfilling job with a great manager. I hit both at my first job at Aetna. But when it came to my second job, what looked like a promotion in business operations, actually turned out to be a dud.
Also, it is super boring, especially if you work in headquarters, where the culture is stuffy and conservative.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Develop your best talent! Groom them, give them stretch assignments, introduce them -- help them grow!

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

    Pros

    Opportunities for advancement; caring company; lots of employee resource groups (clubs) and on-site fitness centers. Lots of telecommuting positions.

    Cons

    Insular - lots of internal promotions and not a lot of new blood. Doesn't always reward promotions with pay increases, you can be paid lower than the specified range for your position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees and pay for performance, not tenure.
