    I worked at Aetna Corp

    Pros

    Great family owned company. They are flexible to the needs of a working parent. If you work hard you get treated well. There are many long-time dedicated employees who are there to help guide and train new employees. The owner is very involved in all areas of the company and wants each employee to succeed.

    Cons

    Fast paced environment is not for everyone. Although there is free parking, the commute is difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Rely more on the people who work for you.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Aetna Corp full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Employees are friendly, new human resources individual is bringing change. Good lunch options... If you get a lunch. Can be cliquey.

    Cons

    Ownership is out of touch with the reality his employees don't like working here. Company culture and morale is laughable. Great strides being made by new HR personnel. The "owner" seems shady.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency, pay, perks, make an effort to listen to staff, stop getting involved with every little minute thing, understand the workforce has changed. Lead through inspiration not fear. The wake up call should be your turnover rate of 65%+.

  4. Excellent environment to learn and grow!

    I have been working at Aetna Corp

    Pros

    If you have the aptitude and desire you will be exposed a wide variety of aspects of how a small company functions. President is always willing to teach, coach, and train employees. I feel as though owners of the company genuinely care about the employees.

    Cons

    Location of Cambridge office makes commute to and from work difficult.

    I worked at Aetna Corp full-time

    Pros

    They have parking on-site in downtown Cambridge.

    Cons

    The office is a hostile work environment where people are chained to their desks for 10+ hours a day with only 30mins to take a true break. President/CEO is outright rude and unprofessional. Current employees seem as if they have been brainwashed to believe that this is how a professional office is run. One time, the President/CEO threatened to initiate a "Question Hour": for one hour in the morning and one hour in...

    Advice to Management

    Retire and put someone in charge that understands that employees will work better in an environment where they feel that they are important and appreciated - not where they fear that any day they will be fired.

    Thank you for providing feedback about your experience working for Aetna Corp. I'm sorry that it was not a positive experience for you. Aetna Corp offered a condensed work week which comprised of four ten-hour days. We understand that this work schedule may not work for everyone. ...
