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

Pros

There are some talented people at Aetna but many are leaving for good reasons. I enjoyed working with my immediate supervisor.

Cons

Aetna was an OK place to work for the first 2 years of my career there. More recently, there was WAY too much work for the number of people on my team but management refused to hire despite great revenue and earnings. Making a decision (i.e., needing multiple layers of managment to make it for you) is a painfully slow, inefficient, ambiguous process.

Advice to Management

Do something with the information you glean from the employee surveys. Keep your promises to employees.

    "It was ok"

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

    Pros

    Started out with a great manager, decent time off, cross-training opportunities always available.

    Cons

    Benefits are a joke for an insurance company, high turn over, poor morale on staff, bloated middle management.

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN TO YOUR EMPLOYEES. Not just the management. It often felt like we were just peons or cogs in a machine. Too much red tape between great ideas from below and the ability to get them realized because of management slow-downs.

    I worked at Aetna full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The environment is employee friendly and the employees are tremendous. They are encouraging of "Work at Home" positions, with 20-30 % of the employees doing so by 2014.

    Cons

    They outsourced the Pharmacy Benefit Manager division, so pharmacy jobs are very limited at Aetna, but the Medical and Life insurance departments are growing!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work with listening to the employees and working with them, not against them.
