    I worked at Cigna

    Pros

    I have so many pros. I received above minimum wage starting salary plus on top of that I received full health benefits and a 401k. The major pro I had was my supervisor Salli she was caring, compassionate, and incredibly understanding. If you had a family emergency she worked with you and helped you out with time off in a hard time. This is one of the most caring bosses I've ever had and helped push me in the most positive career moves. Another boss Melinda does the same gives great feedback to push you for the best quality and career results. Both of these supervisors put you in the best career direction. The company also does a lot to sore they appreciate you through free lunches, prize giveaways and just a positive environment.

    Cons

    Sometimes it's hard for position advancements such as to be a supervisor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't have any advice mine the 4 years I was with them was 100% positive!

    Pros

    They provide very good training and I was lucky enough after a year to work from home. They provided everything I needed such as my computer, internet connection, supplies and more. The medical benefits are much better than what I have now.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, all of the work at home processors got laid off in November but they did pay us through the end of December.

    Current Employee - Infrastructure Engineer Senior Specialist in Philadelphia, PA (US)

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

    Pros

    Entry level position begins as an associate in their Technical Early Career Development Program (TECDP) that extends the first 3 years of you career. The offer constant training and networking opportunities and expose you to a large existing network. The company overall is becoming more innovative and bringing their infrastructure closer to the cutting edge of technology so there is plenty of work to do.

    Cons

    Their IT department contains 4,000+ employees and consultants so most roles are very segmented to specific tasks or areas of responsibilities. It is very process heavy and requires multiple approvals to get things done. The teams are fairly efficient as a result of this structure, but it does prevent me from branching out into new technologies without the need to transfer teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice if teams had dedicated time set aside each week (maybe 2 hours) to focus on innovation and process improvement for their area. I see plenty of things that could be improved, however there isn't enough time in the day to accomplish them effectively and more formally.

    I have been working at Cigna full-time (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

    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
