    I have been working at Cigna full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    the CEO walks the talk; in the right situation, flex time and WAH are available; lots of great co-workers

    Cons

    too many middle managers promoted without apparent training; those who are insecure and incompetent at leading wind up abusing their staff while HR and next level up turn a blind eye.

    Advice to Management

    implement mandatory first-line manager training; speed up the internal hiring process; align with competition (Aetna, United) re: 401k match (100% of 6%)

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

    Pros

    Large company so it is easy to move around
    Great Benefits (401k, vacation time, health/dental/vision)
    Opportunities for training if you have supportive management.

    Cons

    A lot of dysfunction and lack of leadership in middle management; very uncommon to find management that actually supports their employees and assists with their career. A lot of middle management have no leadership training and are clearly interested only in their own advancement. Culture claims to include focus on work/life balance, but that is not consistently supporting. It is very hard to get a decent pay increase once you are in the company, even if you get a promotion unless you fight adamantly and have a manager that is willing to advocate for you. There is a lot of red tape, which is to be expected for a large/older company.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of those in management that cannot be leaders and cannot consistently advocate for Cigna's core values. There is a lot of talent that is being under-utilized; if that is recognized and those people are appreciated and promoted accordingly, it could do wonders for Cigna's business and their quality of service.
