I have been working at Coventry Health Care full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Recently acquired by a big-name company that seems to have better vision and commitment to customers and employees. If you can avoid the inevitable integration staff reductions, you might be able to find a place inside the mothership.

Cons

Many of the best managers and staff have found jobs elsewhere - unfortunately, a lot of lower performers and people waiting for retirement are the ones who are left. Benefits under Aetna are much more expensive than they were under Coventry, and they only offer high-deductible medical plans (no PPO or HMO option).

    Pros

    Great for work-life balance. There are work at home opportunities, flexible hours, generous vacation and benefits.

    Cons

    Just got bought out by Aetna, so future is bleak. Most of us will probably lose our jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.
