Pros

Employees are treated fairly. The company is transparent and has a good reputation within the industry. The work/life balance is good. The company places strong emphasis on values and integrity; consequently, employee morale is generally high. The company's financials have consistently been strong as Aetna has provided a good ROI from a profit, revenue, stockprice, etc. standpoint. Aetna definitely feels like a "best of breed" company.

Cons

Compensation is somewhat lacking and below average for the industry. Aetna stresses efficiency, so company perks can sometimes be limiting.

Advice to Management

Senior management could be more generous in terms of raises and general career advancement. Interaction between the various departments could be improved.

    Pros

    Aetna is a stable and solid company. Salaries and benefits are decent(not great) If you show up and meet the basic requirements of your position, you can enjoy a good work life balance with out a lot of "politics" Obviously, in a company of this size different areas/departments have differences, but in general this is not a company with a high pressure culture. For many years Aetna was kind of "stale" with many ingrained, old school employes but this has changed in recent years.

    Cons

    Aetna can be some what burecratic at times

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, they have made a lot of good changes over the last five years to make the company competitive
