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

    Pros

    Ability to move around to different roles within the company every few years, which keeps work interesting. Competitive compensation.

    Cons

    As I've seen with many large companies - need to deal with 'corporate politics' & can be lots of red tape when trying to deliver your project.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company needs to change its processes / approach to work so it can be more nimble & enable it's employees to deliver quicker.

    Current Employee - Business Project Senior Specialist in Denver, CO (US)

    I have been working at Cigna full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I was compensated well and had flexibility to work from home

    Cons

    I got blindsided with a job elimination with no severance after fifteen years of severance. Too many layoffs and the review process is too rigid. They have to select people who are under performing even if there aren't any.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This organization spends too much time in the vertical world. There is very little room for input from mid level and front line employees. Very much a top down organization. Lots of time wasted trying to control approvals

    I worked at Cigna as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Working Culture here is good as people treat you like a family. Senior management team is willing to teach you and give advice to your career path

    Cons

    Work is kinda easy as an intern's perspectives. Team leader can give out more work and autonomy to the interns for them to be responsible for a particular projects

    Former Employee - Applications Developer in Windsor, CT (US)

    I worked at Cigna as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    There was definitely a good work-life balance when I worked there. Granted, I was just an intern, but I never felt like those around me were too stressed out with working very much off normal hours.

    Cons

    A ton of bureaucracy as is expected of an organization of this size. Most people that I know had to wait 3 weeks before getting developer rights to do any actual developer work on their machines.

    Current Employee - Customer Service Advocate in Scranton, PA (US)

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

    Pros

    While there is a lot of room for growth within the company some people worthy of it do get passed over due to favoritism. Some have worked hard and it is not paying off. If you play the game you will move. Work life balance and the managers working with you in the event of something unexpected happening is amazing.

    Cons

    being passed over for opportunities after working towards goals managers set for you and having others picked who put less work in. The health benefits are not the best either, which is funny since we offer them, I have worked on accounts that have better benefits than i do. It's a huge let down and hit to moral.
