    I have been working at Aetna full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some Pros are that they have 6% matching for 401k, good number of PTO days, and possible work at home days if needed later on. They are also pretty flexible if you have any appointments during the day.

    Cons

    They do not allow for much growth. Health Insurance is an old industry, and Aetna seems to reaffirm that with their slow professional growth and uncompetitive salary. They also have limited health plans available to their employees. Most of the ones covered by the employer have very poor benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Please allow employees to have more professional growth and encourage more innovation. Let's not confirm the outdatedness of the health insurance industry.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Aetna.

    Interview

    The interview was scheduled promptly. I had a phone interview and was scheduled for an in person interview which went very well. My biggest grievance is that HR barely provides status updates! I have had to play phone tag with my recruiter. I ultimately withdrew myself from consideration.
