    Pros

    I love my current role , mgrs are flexible and allow you to work from home in some instances , I receive training throughout the year for my role . Nice co workers .

    Cons

    At this time in my current role I don't have any. In other previous roles definately have had some . I am disappointed in the health benefits . Deductibles way to high , can't afford to go to the dr even with insurance . .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to do something regarding pay . People hired from the outside make more to start then current employees with 5+ years

    Things are done how they've always been done....not a ton of innovation

    Former Employee - Account Installation Specialist in Greenwood Village, CO (US)
    Former Employee - Account Installation Specialist in Greenwood Village, CO (US)

    I worked at Cigna full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Employees are given the ability to make their own decisions. Was never micro managed. Ability to work from home occasionally was very nice.

    Cons

    Large amounts of work was given, and the more you did the more they would dump on you. NO work life balance for most employees in my department. A very matrixed company, to get anything done you need to rely on many other departments and employees. Hard to move around within the company, many hired based upon who they know not what they know. Employees at the Greenwood Village location get ignored a lot by upper management. Management constantly throws temporary band aids at things then trying to fix the real issues. Horrible benefits, especially considering that this is a health insurance company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees. Provide more work-life balance to employees.

    Collegial environment, but significant ambiguity in IT projects from inception to delivery

    Current Employee - Applications Development Senior Specialist in Phila, PA (US)

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

    Pros

    Good working relationships with internal/external (onshore and offshore) IT team members.

    Cons

    Significant ambiguity in terms of business and functional requirements. The delivery model is waterfall and 'modified' agile (iterative waterfall) and requirements issues cascade downstream and become realized as deliverable objects that ultimately fail in QA.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better governance and communication model between the application development and infrastructure teams, and strongly promote agile whenever possible to the business to reduce the inherent risks with multi-year projects that are so heavily weighted towards waterfall SDLC.
