Invaluable experience

Marketing Communications (Current Employee)
Phoenix, AZ

ProsGreat company for people who like corporate worlds and worldviews. I've met amazing individuals here - most are dedicated, caring, smart and committed to doing the best they can for customers. If you like complexity and nuances, security badges and cubicles, you'll be right at home. CIGNA is a multi-national company offering plenty of different paths to consider as you build a career; and you will be encouraged to explore whatever interests you, even on company time (just not *too much* company time). CIGNA is a major player in this industry with offices in great cities around the country and world; if you're mobile and willing, you can move up and around. The vacation packages are great, the benefits solid. You'll work hard, learn volumes, and meet impressive people.

ConsIt's a giant corporation like any other giant corporation: politics, technology, silos, limited resources, new business theories and bureaucracy can each impede real productivity at different times. Most employees are female (that's not a bad thing) - especially below the proverbial glass ceiling (this isn't a good thing). If you're not a self-starter who can build your own personal network, and if you don't naturally struggle against becoming a workaholic, you may not fit in here. For most positions, you're thrown in to sink or swim - there a few opportunities for formal training, and the employee on-boarding process is not anywhere in the universe of "smooth." People here thrive on pressure and making due with limited resources; but it's not always fun, and the rewards for the cubicle-dwellers can feel like a long time coming.

Advice to Senior ManagementIn this economy, it would be so refreshing to hear leadership admit that we can't do it all - and then watch them back it up with appropriate policies, procedures, decisions and actions.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
