I worked at Aetna full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Challenging and interesting work, travel opportunities, good pay and benefits, nice facilities.

Cons

Family friendly policies did not live up to the reputation. Management more concerned about face time rather than results. Restrictive salary range once you hit top of your grade range despite superior performance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more open-minded and listen to the rank and file mid management associates.

    I worked at Aetna full-time

    Pros

    Benefits
    Big Name Company
    Work From Home

    Cons

    Management -- no one seems to know what is going on ...
    Communication -- Management communicates frequently but usually says, "We don't know" or communication is not honest -- they say what they think legacy employees what to hear (like "We'll keep the best of the best") and they do something different (random lay offs).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest in your communications. If you say you'll keep the best of the best, offer people an opportunity to find a position within the company before you lay people off.
    Explain the criteria for lay offs ... Is it last in first out? Is it the most expensive person in a level gets axed first? Is it completely random? Is it oldest first? Is it youngest first? We know Aetna makes the decision and doesn't tell legacy managers anything but "Let this person go." What you are doing adds stress and distrust into the work environment. Maybe that is the desired result?
