A place to work when you're close to retirement, not when you're fresh out of college.

Quality Assurance Lead (Former Employee)
Windsor Locks, CT

I worked at Cigna

Pros-The great majority of your co-workers are kind and helpful
-The corporate headquarters has a doctor on-site which is very helpful if you do not want to take time off work for an easy visit
-Opportunities to move around and try different positions within the same department

Cons-Inefficient (pretty standard in such a large company but seems to be much worse within the insurance companies in CT)
-Horrible health insurance
-Employee reviews are set up in a very destructive way (the company requires management to give a specific grade of A - F and tells them the percent of people who need to be within each of those grades which obviously forces the department to rank people in a way that is not realistic to performance)
-Many people need to be let go and a lot of others need to be promoted - this is what causes a stone age type of environment and a high turn-over rate of the younger crowd

Advice to Senior Management1. Get back to basics with your employee reviews - stop trying to make the process so complicated
2. Find a better way to appropriately insure your full time employees (I would NEVER go back to Cigna for this reason - which is crazy because they're an insurance company)
3. Become more efficient! Eliminate the waste and promote the ones who are making a difference.
4. Invest more heavily in your technology groups - I recognize that all insurance companies are "behind the times" with technology but you're never going to be profitable if you continue with your current path. It's just a matter of time before hospitals and companies eliminate the middle man (insurance companies) because they realize it's cheaper.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
