I have been working at Aetna full-time (More than a year)

Pros

There are plenty of benefits to choose from while working at Aetna. These are my favorites: yearly bonus potential and ample PTO. They also offer a career development program that can be used to map out your planned career path. Aetna seems to really appreciate employees and wants to retain them by assisting in the development of their respective careers.

Cons

We are only offered a choice between 2 high deductible health insurance plans.

    I worked at Aetna full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Aetna is a great place to workl! Training programs are good, good pay, good benefits which include wellness incentives, funding for education, etc.etc. They also have a significant work-at-home workforce.

    Cons

    Aetna overall - none. Every big company will have some managers with values that don't fit with the overall culture, however.

    Advice to Management

    Lead management in the EAP area have made some significantly bad decisions, but then, you already know that.

    I have been working at Aetna full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    At a time of economic difficulty in the U.S. it's good to be employed and Aetna is a paycheck with medical benefits.

    Cons

    Aetna used to be a great company to work for. Now, either because of health care reform/Obama Care or maybe just the changes in leadership I wouldn't recommend Aetna as a choice for employment. The attitude of what they call senior management is one of almost disdain toward those who actually do the work. The subtle “sit down shut up and do as you’re told” atmosphere is prevalent among almost all management with no one to speak for or defend the employees. They’ve cut back drastically on the workforce and now require double and triple workloads for those left. In the mean time they’re hiring and training overseas and will eventually move most of the remaining jobs to off shore locations. If you’re just entering the work force Aetna may be an option to get some experience and training but don’t look to this company as a career move. You will most certainly be disappointed.

    Advice to Management

    Before decisions are made at least make an attempt to know the basic requirement of the jobs affected. Six Sigma works only if you know the steps required to get something done, not by creating a non-certified level (orange belt?!) just to save money. Restore the respect and empathy that used to be Mother Aetna.
