I worked at Aetna full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Great people to work with; company takes employee survey results seriously.

Cons

When it's time for layoffs, the quality of your work and your metrics results don't matter. I was there 15 years, with results that exceeded anything that was asked of me. There is still a lot of dead weight that gets to keep their jobs.

Advice to Management

My former team is now on overtime getting the work done. We had not had approved OT in YEARS, but now that I am gone it is mandatory. That tells me that my elimination was not well thought out. If you're going to impact my life in this way so greatly, in this economy, could you at least give it some forethought?

    Pros

    There is opportunity to advance. Lots of best practice activities in many areas of the company.

    Cons

    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.
