I have been working at Cigna full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Work Life balance.
Work from home option (depends on department).

Cons

If you do good work, you own a lot.
Communication gap between higher management and staff.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Each department seems like working and controlled in their own way be respective heads. Absence of enterprise level consistent practices.
Also there is not enough accountability of budget being allocated to large projects, lots of rework for the same business goals just with new name but same results every time.

    Heads-down, CYA work ethos makes it difficult to improve processes

    I have been working at Cigna full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good people to work with, I haven't encountered any slackers. The average age of my fellow employees is pretty high, indicating that the company is not picking the low-hanging fruit on the pay ladder. Working from home is readily permitted if the position allows it.

    Cons

    Really poor interdepartmental communication and followup. Handing off a task to someone in another department requires repeated follow-ups to insure the task is handled. Improving processes is difficult because every employee is loaded with work, so they (a) don't have time for strategic planning and (b) don't have the time or inclination to learn new ways of doing things. A horrible implementation of Agile Project Management methodology has resulted in everyone feeling under the gun, all the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read Jim Collins' Built to Last. Take care of your employees first, and they'll take care of your customers in the same way. Hire enough people that your employees don't feel like they have to put in 10 hour days to get just the baseline work finished.

    I have been working at Cigna full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great internal training program when I was hired right out of college. Cigna allowed me to pursue varying career paths within multiple different business units so that I could gain a broader understanding of how our company operates. This freedom has allowed me to be a more confident employee and better serve my customers.

    Cons

    Working for such a large company with several different business units (medical, dental, pharmacy, international, life/disability) can prove cumbersome at times. When looking to bring change or respond to immediate client needs there can be a bit of red tape you need to work through in order to enact any change.
