Pros

Good product set, some interesting new projects to get involved with, many industry smart people working at the company.

Cons

Company is spread way too thin . . . involved in many more markets and initiatives, then they can effectively execute. Strong industry smarts, many times, prevents management from making the right business decision.

Advice to Management

Seek to understand what your true competencies are and then focus your strategies around them.

    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.
