I worked at Aetna full-time for more than a year

Pros

some work at home opportunities depending on the division you work in; business casual; 401 match is great

Cons

No HR support; Inadequate orientation; constant turmoil-crisis management; leadership not interested in true quality process improvement; poor employee health insurance; technical capabilities at a level lower than expected for an international company;

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Recognize that the line staff are the key to an organizations success- need to reverse the inverted organizational pyrimid- to many executives

    I worked at Aetna full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There are many different employment opportunities available. Work at home options are great. Great 401k match. Casual environment. The CEO implements an open-minded attitude. Workers are friendly, and teams tend to have a family-like feel to them.

    Cons

    The salaries at Aetna tend to be low, unless you are in management. Their business strategy seems to have been to offer early retirement to the experienced workers, and snag those struggling in the tough economy at a low salary. The low salaries cause a poor turnover rate, and this hurts teams that have jobs with steep learning curves. Communication between teams is poor. There are many occurrences of inefficiencies that cause resources to be poorly managed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be less stingy with employees that bring great value to you.

    I worked at Aetna full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Talented people, a treasure trove of knowledge and experience. Beautiful, historic home office - refitted and awards Leeds recognition for sustainability. Strong, well built telework support. Good records management program.

    Cons

    Since Ron Williams departure moral is down, trust in leadership is down, lay-offs and reduction in force continue to demoralize. Strategic projects are started and then struggle for funding, resources, management attention. Sad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Board should insist that the employee survey is re-instituted and carefully read the comments.
