Approves of CEO

I worked at Aetna full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The environment is employee friendly and the employees are tremendous. They are encouraging of "Work at Home" positions, with 20-30 % of the employees doing so by 2014.

Cons

They outsourced the Pharmacy Benefit Manager division, so pharmacy jobs are very limited at Aetna, but the Medical and Life insurance departments are growing!

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work with listening to the employees and working with them, not against them.

    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 Management

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