Pros

David Cordani has created a highly talented and well grounded leadership team who will do great things for Cigna. There is much flexibility and work life balance. Work at home for many. Room to grow for most. Strong Ethics and company values many great people. Home office and other facilities are great. It's very nice and comfortable. Great benefits and discounts. New college grads have great opportunity to get in and grow. Fast paced company- lots of hard workers who are highly dedicated. Global expansion is positive. Go Cigna!

Cons

Outside learning and development, professional associations are not supported but there is tuition reimbursement. Yearly rating system is awful. All new hired usually get the lowest rating which keeps them from getting bonus or an increase. Of course they don't know this when they accept an offer HR has a culture and sub culture that is horrible but no one wants to change. It's a shame.
Hiring the best does not always happen- takes too long to fill openings. Employee reviews are done by only the current manager. Very subjective and not necessarily accurate or fair. APOs are vague . Job posting system is terrible.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve the culture in HR. Get them to know each other and care about each other. It's every man for himself. I don't see the team caring or helping each other. The HR area should be setting the standards instead of throwing each other under the bus. It's a shark tank! So wrong compared to Cordani's leadership. Maybe he doesn't know?

    The Cigna Medical Group in Phoenix ceased being about providing excellent healthcare and became all about productivity.

    Pros

    As a physician, I can not think of any Pros to join Cigna Medical Group and actually practice medicine. Perhaps at the corporate level in Utilization Review or as a Medical Executive, there might be some job satisfaction in joining Cigna Healthcare.

    Cons

    HR within Cigna does not function to assist employees with on-boarding, education or career advancement. It function more like the Cigna Gastapo.
    The yearly performance review process is not based on true performance. It is based on the needs of the company. Rankings are quartiled. Regardless of ones performance, 50% of individuals in each department will receive a mediocre review and no merit raise or stocks.
    It is common knowledge that the pool of money for raises and long term benefits such as company stocks are also reduced each year when "Corporate" raids the pool to provide higher raises at the "Corporate" level back east.
    Management is top down, clickish and poorly monitored. The physicians in Cigna Medical Group have little or no opportunities to participate in the leadership and organization of the group. It is very much like the "Wack a Mole game. The individual who complains about anything gets waked. This has resulted in many new physicians to the group leaving as quickly as they can. Several of the Medical Directors have left for the same reasons. The physicians who have been with Cigna Medical Group for many years remember when the prime directive was to provide excellent care. It is very heard to leave the group when they are so near to the end of their careers, so they stay. The morale is terrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am loath to give any advice to Management as I know they will do nothing. It is all about the bottom line, the profit for the company. I understand that. All the physicians understand that. It is ultimately the decision of each physician to decide if they can work in that environment or not.
