    Pros

    You will get good experience.

    Cons

    Management plays favorites...your career advancement doesn't depend on how smart you are or how hard you work...it depends on who likes you. Lots of in-fighting and dysfunctional leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to do a fair and objective skill assessment to really determine who should be placed on succession planning lists. Senior management severely lacks ethnic diversity.

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

    Pros

    I always had excellent managers. The workplace environment is professional and accepting. They value internal hires/promotions over external hires. Bonuses can be quite good. Flex time and PTO balances were really flexible and excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Twice yearly layoffs without any prior notifications making it feel like scare tactics. Frequent company reorganization makes the landscape shift too much. Lots of inter-office politics. Internal hires are severely underpaid, the company refuses to ever give more than an 8% raise regardless of job change. By the time I left I got a job for the mid range salary of my position at Aetna, which was 40% higher than what I was getting at Aetna. Health insurance was actually not that great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Either the entire IT department needs to drastically shift in setup, or you should stop trying to get rid of shadow IT. Each time you re-organize the company to remove shadow IT you treat a symptom without altering the cause. It just keeps springing up, and you lose a lot of talent by shifting the workings of the company so often.
