    Pros

    Lots of PTO, good 401k matching, lots of emphasis on personal and professional development, tuition reimbursement is OK, challenging assignments abound, embraces work at home/remote employees, Cordani has a great strategic vision for the company

    Cons

    Terrible health benefits, work/life balance is hit or miss depending on team/project, bureaucratic & rigid culture in many IT orgs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better health benefits, more transparency/consistency around the dozens of processes needed to go through to get anything done outside your org

    I have been working at Cigna full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work life balance. Challenging projects. Professional colleagues and supportive upper management. Great benefits and very stable, growing industry. Work across geographies.

    Cons

    Limited upward mobility. Organizational changes aren't always communicated. People may leave or change roles and it is not communicated. Legacy systems are too numerous. Business processes are not documented and each project that comes along seems to be charged with capturing what should already be documented.

    Pros

    Structured. Recruit above average IT talent. Healthy work life balance.

    Cons

    With a company so large, it can be easy to feel like a tiny fish in a big pond. Work with your manager to align your current work or education with your long term career goals.
