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

Pros

I've worked with some very pleasant people. The level of professionalism is decent, although that can range depending on the department you're working in. First tier management is usually understanding. Work from home was a blessing given the commute.

Cons

If you're already employed, dont expect to get a salary raise as a result of an MBA. Once you're in a box at Cigna, it's hard to break the mold. Management tends to pick a very few and put them on the desired path, regardless of whether or not you're capable of doing the same. It's a running joke that the best way to get a good raise or shift departments is to leave Cigna, then return a few years later.

Advice to Management

Better career advancement and training opportunities. Current employee rating system is bogus, why should I bother writing a long annual self review if you've already put me in a rank?

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

    Pros

    The pay is good, benefits decent. There are a lot of good people who work very hard to get results.

    Cons

    Not all leadership is of a consistent quality or business acumen level. This can be challenging cross-functionally.

    Advice to Management

    Hold all the supervisors and leaders accountable for professional capabilities and actions. This might mean paying more for outside talent rather then promoting from within or making sure that the supervisor level is led by strong managers who can groom that skill set if needed.

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

    Pros

    Most of the 1st line managers in Technology are great.
    Work life balance

    Cons

    Benefits in particular the health insurance gave limited options.
    very reluctant to change / new ideas.

    Advice to Management

    It appeared that HR didn't closely monitor employee or more so contractor turnover. The team I was on went though contractors at alarming rate, for Sr. Level technologists this should not be the case. It was more of an indication of a management problem but this went unaddressed for quite some time.
