    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.

    Network Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Louisville, KY

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Aetna (Louisville, KY).

    Interview

    Applied on Aetnas website, received a call the same day from recruiter set up interview for the next day. Recruiter said it went great and information would be passed along to hiring manager and If she was interested she would contact me directly for the interview, she called 2 days later and set up interview

    Now he is the kicker!... for 2 months I was strung along to be told I was a top final candidate and that the Hiring managers manager would be reaching out to me to schedule my final interview. Well that day came and I received the generic “No Thanks email”! I was in total disbelief due to the fact that HR has told me how well my interview went with the hiring manager and that I was everything they were looking for in this position. The reason I didn’t get the job was because they decided to go on a different direction Per the recruiter.

    Well thanks for wasting over 2 months for nothing!
