Good pay and work environment, but bureaucratic and no job security or career development

IT Programmer/Analyst (Former Employee)
Greenwood Village, CO (US)

I worked at Cigna full-time for more than 10 years

ProsCigna is a stable company with good pay, a pleasant work environment, a great cafeteria and covered parking. If you are happy with your assignment, you will probably enjoy your work there. They have a good tuition reimbursement policy. They also have a good severance policy (see "Cons").

ConsIt is very difficult to change jobs internally. When your job is no longer needed, you will probably be let go. They are currently in the process of outsourcing nearly all of their IT jobs. It is unclear whether Cigna is committed to maintaining anything more than a sales office in Colorado. Management is well-established, and they rarely promote from within.

Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management conveys an upbeat, can-do, customer-focused, open-door attitude. However, at the local level, the attitude is mostly about self-preservation, any news that might be construed as negative must not be communicated up.

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

Great Company

Business Project Senior Analyst (Current Employee)

I have been working at Cigna full-time for more than 5 years

ProsBenefits, 401k, Vacation, and career advancement, management cares about your work life balance

ConsNeed to have a base salary for each position, it's hard to walk in making so much less than co workers and doing 3x as much and a better job!

Advice to Senior ManagementSee cons! Base pay for positions

Excellent company with great opportunities for career growth!

Business Project Manager (Current Employee)
Scranton, PA (US)

I have been working at Cigna full-time for more than 8 years

ProsI've been afforded a lot of opportunities and been able to maximize my potential at Cigna. Also, in my role I am able to have a flexible work schedule and work from home when necessary.

ConsThere are times that we have to work under pretty tight deadlines which translates into some late night work and a loss of the work/life balance. It doesn't happen all the time but can be tough when it does happen.

Respect for individuality and growth

Customer Support Tech Spec (Current Employee)

I have been working at Cigna full-time for more than a year

Advice to Senior ManagementThere's always room for better organization. Keep emphasizing employees making suggestions for ways to be more efficient.
