    I worked at Aetna full-time

    Pros

    The work-life balance is just fantastic as you can work from home or go into the office. You are required to be in office for a minimum of 15 hours per week + mandatory meetings, but being able to work from home the rest of the time is great.

    Cons

    The only con is that it takes a long time to move up in this field, but that is because it's so competitive. You really need to work hard if you want to progress.

    Advice to Management

    You're doing great.

    I have been working at Aetna full-time

    Pros

    Aetna is a great company to work for. They offer great benefits to all levels of employees including cool perks like a $200 reimbursement for any wellness purchase throughout the year.

    Cons

    There are a lot of changes happening right now so people are definitely worried about jobs but overall the retention rate is pretty high.

    Pros

    It is a Corporation that challenges you to maximize your potential.

    Cons

    I have found that the Company values title over skillset(s).

    Advice to Management

    Consider seeking and employing candidates whose skillset(s) best fit the organization's needs, rather than candidates who may have a title, but require training for a particular role/position.

    Pros

    Flexibility
    Other than that I have nothing good to say about this company

    Cons

    Awful Company if you are trying to grow your career, I would not suggest working here. Talent goes unnoticed and there is barely any on boarding/training programs. I regret staying as long as I did. I was told one thing and then management would do another.

    Advice to Management

    Notice talent, speak the truth and do not tell employees one thing and then do another.
