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

    Pros

    For the Mid South area (NC/SC/TN/some AR), the manager is phenomenal! She is super knowledgeable, consistent, fair, and communicative. The job itself is great if you have a type A personality and enjoy a combination of nursing and data entry. The work-life balance is awesome and it pays more than the bedside positions I have worked until now (13 years experience). By far the best job I have ever had!

    Cons

    Don't think that getting away from the bedside and being able to work from that you don't have to work hard or have good clinical judgement. Those that are unable to adapt to constantly changing workflows or lack exceptional organizational skills may find this position overwhelming.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.
