Pros

If you have a degree in psychology and can not find any other job then it will pay the bills. It is the kind of job that you can make look pretty good on a resume but it is brutal to work there. The only up side is there is no take home work, just the psychological damage. As long as you have half a brain you can do the job so it is a good place to work while you job hunt.

Cons

You are tied to a phone the whole time, regardless of what they tell you during the interview. It is a very micromanagement kind of place. They actually monitor how long you are off the phone so you can see how many bathroom breaks you average. If you are more than 15 minutes late for work it is considered a half day towards your PTO.

Advice to Management

Train some monkeys and let them do that mind numbing job.

    Pros

    Job flexibility, can still have a life outside of work.
    Good vacation policy, allow employees to buy up to a week of vacation.

    Cons

    Pay for performance culture based on a bell curve, so some employees are ranked as "needing improvement" aka poorly just due to needing rank employees. There also used to be rampant favoratism, but that seems to have ebbed recently.

    Advice to Management

    Other similar companies have better benefits, better pay, and not a pay for performance culture.

    Pros

    Good people, great vacation/pto policies; very flexible in work schedules, room for career advancement, tuition remibursement for college. Pension plan.

    Cons

    Healthcare benefits are not great. I feel they should be much better for the employees of such a well recognized health care system. Merit/cost of living increases could be better. There should be more and better employee recognition events/programs. I also feel that CIGNA did a disservice to many of it's employees when it change it's infracturre to career banding. By lumping job title into bands/families that don't really apply, it enabled CIGNA essentially to underpay some of its employees and prevent them from receiving the appropriate merit increases each year due to some people being at or over the "median" salary for the band the employee was forced into. That caused a lot of dissastification in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to give more respect and take better care of the foundation of your business as it is the foundation that holds the structure together. Don't forget the "little people".
