    Variety and Opportunity

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat mission statement, it feels good working for a company that treats it's customer right. The pay and benefits are average, but adequate. The company is really becoming a global operation, versus just US based, and it's an exciting time to be here.

    ConsThe company truly believes in work life balance, but with fiscal tightening, productivity has to come from somewhere.

    Advice to Senior ManagementA happy workforce means happy customers

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Rewards For Performance is a Joke

    Senior Analyst (Current Employee)

    Pros- Great Tuition Reimbursement

    - Flexible work from home arrangements

    - Oppotunities to try new roles

    Cons- Pay is low and the "rewards for performance" strategy doesn't actually work. Telling employees that they need to be in their role for 3-5 years before they will be paid 90% of a fair wage is a horrible practice. I have been on my current team for two years and have gotten the highest possible performance rating both years, but I won't reach reach the "Market Value" that Cigna told me I'm worth for another 4 years. Knowing that I am a high performer and could make 15-20k more elsewhere, why should I stay?

    - For non-hourly roles, pay is not differentiated based on location. If you live somewhere with high cost of living, your pay will not be adjusted.

    - If you are brought into Cigna through an acquisition, integration will be slow or non-existent. Don't expect IT or operations support, but be prepared for external partners to hold you to a higher standard.

    Advice to Senior Management- Don't make employees wait 3-5 years to earn what their work is worth. You will continue to lose top talent.

    - Make integration about more than paperwork standardization.

    - Add locality pay to the compensation strategy.

    Extremely stressful and management can be clueless

    Applications Developer (Former Employee) Chattanooga, TN (US)

    ProsDecent salary, just beats unemployment

    ConsDealing with last minute meetings, constant change in direction, office politics, clueless domain expertise in management

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you must micromanage your people, at least choose the important issues to micromanage.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
