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


    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.


    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.

    Average Interview


    The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Aetna (Hartford, CT).


    I saw the job on Indeed and applied on their website. Initial contact after about 3 weeks was with an Aetna in-house recruiter. This interview was mostly just asking me to summarize my background and going over the position. I was invited after another 2 weeks in for an in-person interview with the hiring managers. These were both behavioral questions and some light technical. After that, waited again for 3 weeks and was asked back for a lunch interview. This was almost a repeat of the first interview, except in a restaurant close to other strangers, which I found very awkward. I, perhaps naively, expected it to be a more casual “getting to know you” setting and it was not so I was a little unprepared for the hard questions.
