Slow decision making process at executive levels. Horrible work life balance.

Advice to Management

Advice to Aetna's Board - pay attention and talk to employees instead of accepting what you are told by Mark and his team.

    I worked at Aetna full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Talented people, a treasure trove of knowledge and experience. Beautiful, historic home office - refitted and awards Leeds recognition for sustainability. Strong, well built telework support. Good records management program.

    Cons

    Since Ron Williams departure moral is down, trust in leadership is down, lay-offs and reduction in force continue to demoralize. Strategic projects are started and then struggle for funding, resources, management attention. Sad.

    Advice to Management

    The Board should insist that the employee survey is re-instituted and carefully read the comments.

    I worked at Aetna full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are many different employment opportunities available. Work at home options are great. Great 401k match. Casual environment. The CEO implements an open-minded attitude. Workers are friendly, and teams tend to have a family-like feel to them.

    Cons

    The salaries at Aetna tend to be low, unless you are in management. Their business strategy seems to have been to offer early retirement to the experienced workers, and snag those struggling in the tough economy at a low salary. The low salaries cause a poor turnover rate, and this hurts teams that have jobs with steep learning curves. Communication between teams is poor. There are many occurrences of inefficiencies that cause resources to be poorly managed.

    Advice to Management

    Be less stingy with employees that bring great value to you.
