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

Pros

Aetna is a great company to work for, with overall good benefits except for Medical. The management team is great!

Cons

For medical benefits they offer an HSA where you pay most of the stuff out of pocket. They also offer
lower then market pay using the health benefits as a carrott but its not really that good.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Its one of the greatest companies I ever worked for. Great managers but allow employees to buy same good plans that customers can buy (medical insurance)

    I worked at Aetna full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Paid time off is excellent. Use your time however you want or need for sick, vacation, and personal. Work from home is accepted and encouraged, and creates good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Too much reliance and spending on vendors and consultants. Technology is modern and cutting-edge, but no training or investment in employees to implement and support the technology will lead to failure.

    Employees are kept in the dark on major decisions and long-term strategy and vision is not clear. Multiple reorganizations and job eliminations in the past few years. As a product of this, job responsibilities and departments can change very quickly, but it takes many months for HR details (reporting structure, title, salary, etc) to follow suit. What appear to be promotions end up being increased responsibility with no title change and no salary increase.

    No support from HR, told to talk to your manager whose hands are often just as tied by upper management

    Limited opportunity for advancement unless you are in headquarters in Hartford. Salaries are low and internal moves are capped at a percentage that will often not even bring you to the minimum of the salary range.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop relying so heavily on vendors and consultants, and put more investment back into your employees. Be more transparent.
