I worked at Aetna full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

There are many different employment opportunities available. Work at home options are great. Great 401k match. Casual environment. The CEO implements an open-minded attitude. Workers are friendly, and teams tend to have a family-like feel to them.

Cons

The salaries at Aetna tend to be low, unless you are in management. Their business strategy seems to have been to offer early retirement to the experienced workers, and snag those struggling in the tough economy at a low salary. The low salaries cause a poor turnover rate, and this hurts teams that have jobs with steep learning curves. Communication between teams is poor. There are many occurrences of inefficiencies that cause resources to be poorly managed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be less stingy with employees that bring great value to you.

    I have been working at Aetna as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Some of the people you work with are excellent coworkers. They demonstrate a high degree of knowlege, empathize with customers, are all about showing professionalism in all their business transactions.

    Cons

    Like every large company, there is some dead wood in the ranks. They don't show up for meetings, don't return e-mails, and take a week to do what others do in a half day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with your dead wook and under performers. Call them out and cull them out or the high performers will lose morale and join the shirkers ranks.
