I worked at Cigna full-time

Pros

I worked with many great people at Cigna. They were always willing to mentor and give advice, and help people advance. There were always open jobs all over the world, so there were opportunities to move, if desired or needed.

Cons

Any pay increase that would be associated with advancement is "capped". Suppose you start as an entry-level person, finally get your degree, apply for and get a position a band level higher, and that position's market value is twice what you were making. You will not get paid that market value - they will increase your pay to 70% of the new jobs Market Value, and keep you there, even if you are a high performer. Additionally, there are restrictions on the number of band levels you can advance at one time. In the above scenario, suppose you got a degree, and with your demonstrated experience with Cigna, as well as past work experience, you are qualified for a band 3 position, but you are currently a band 1. Several managers and above would have to sign off on you advancing into that position; this is more work for the hiring manager, and kills the odds of advancing professionally and financially.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You really need to re-evaluate the policies regarding advancement and compensation. To keep employees at a low market value percent range because the difference between the employees pay when they joined the organization, and the pay for the new job was too much makes employees who worked hard to advance feel used. When upper management says that "It happens to everyone here", and advises that the only way to get paid what I am worth would be to leave the company for 6 months, then come back ... that says a lot.
