    I have been working at Cigna full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Will gain solid professional experiences if in the right functional areas and supported by a progressive minded manager. The organization is very open to employees seeking new opportunities across the company and across functions. Solid leadership team, very smart.

    Cons

    Speed to market on new product development is a lag compared to competition, especially compared to start up companies. Ability to win in downmarket, especially within fully insured space. Upward mobility into VP ranks and above seems quite gated. Salary progression very limited over time, unless overachieving most of the years.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in professional growth of your employees. Enterprise strategy and vision is working. Need to become more reactive to external market changes and shifting demands. Maybe M&A is another tool to enhance your speed to market.

    Pros

    The culture and benefits are excellent, and opportunities for exposure and knowledge are always available. The company has found a way to balance company advancement in the industry with putting customers first...which is refreshing.

    Cons

    Vertical growth can be limited as you move higher in the company, but this can be expected at most businesses. Cross-functional exposure is required in order to expand opportunities.

    CEO David Cordani is a phenomenal leader with a great vision. Company is trying to do right by its customers and provider partners, and lead the industry in positive change.

    Cons

    Tries to do too many things just good enough, as opposed to focusing on fewer things (products, initiatives, etc.) and doing those things completely.

    I worked at Cigna full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There is a lot of opportunity to work at home and it is an expanding and changing industry. The building and grounds were amazing.

    Cons

    Management was not open to difficulties outside of work. Felt like I had been pushed out of the position. My last two projects were not graded and I felt as though I was improving greatly. No empathy from manager, poor communication between training and management. Felt I was set as an example. Favoritism was definitely shown.

    Pros

    Good culture, great people, good about working from home, lateral movement in company easy. Its a great place to start if you're early in your career.

    Cons

    Plays favorites, lots of people will move to whatever organization is the current golden child. A little full of themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on everyone and not just those in the spot light.
