Pros

Flex time, telecommuting part-time opportunities available depending on department, good salary and bonus, very generous time off (at band 4, starting with 23 days paid time off a year with option to buy another week off), partnerships with various charities (including United Way), encourages employees to volunteer in community, I personally have a great manager, location in Bloomfield has other great perks making life easier including onsite cafeteria, gym, health clinic, physical and massage therapists. Pros far outweigh cons, at least for now.

Cons

worst help desk ever, not good health insurance benefits (HRAs and HSAs - consumer-driven health plans), very little diversity in upper management (very few women or other minorities) is discouraging, cheap about offering training to employees. Merit pay system (determination of raises) not very good - management has to grade direct reports on a "curve", giving a certain distribution of performance ratings, which in turn determine raises given. System is unfair and does not promote teamwork.

Advice to Management

Revamp merit pay system, offer more opportunities for professional development and actively work on recruiting a more diverse pool of employees for upper management. And do something about the help desk/technical support. CIGNA does a great job of helping employees with work-life balance (telecommuting, flex time, time off) - best I've seen.

    Pros

    Younger CEO that is moving the company in a better direction. Lots of opportunities to learn and grow professionally.

    Cons

    Worst health insurance benefits I have ever received, raises fall far below inflation, very tough to advance, lots of politics in certain areas of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Budget for more fair raises, and give employees decent health coverage. If I worked at The Gap I would expect a good deal on jeans, so since I work at a health insurance company I expect decent benefits.
