Pros

If you have a degree in psychology and can not find any other job then it will pay the bills. It is the kind of job that you can make look pretty good on a resume but it is brutal to work there. The only up side is there is no take home work, just the psychological damage. As long as you have half a brain you can do the job so it is a good place to work while you job hunt.

Cons

You are tied to a phone the whole time, regardless of what they tell you during the interview. It is a very micromanagement kind of place. They actually monitor how long you are off the phone so you can see how many bathroom breaks you average. If you are more than 15 minutes late for work it is considered a half day towards your PTO.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Train some monkeys and let them do that mind numbing job.

    Pros

    Job flexibility, can still have a life outside of work.
    Good vacation policy, allow employees to buy up to a week of vacation.

    Cons

    Pay for performance culture based on a bell curve, so some employees are ranked as "needing improvement" aka poorly just due to needing rank employees. There also used to be rampant favoratism, but that seems to have ebbed recently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Other similar companies have better benefits, better pay, and not a pay for performance culture.

    Pros

    The opportunities to advance within CIGNA are nearly limitless, though they may sometimes require relocation depending on the size of your office. Management is eager to promote those employees who have potential.

    Cons

    The "rewards-for-performance" compensation system can result in some pretty measly merit and promotion raises. Every position has a market value that is openly discussed with employees. However, performance vs. market value never seems to line up the way one would think it should. Ratings during the annual review must be given on a bell curve, so there will always have to be someone with a "needs improvement" rating, regardless of whether anyone on the team actually deserves that rating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If our pricing stinks, we're not going to be terribly successful at selling anything.
