    I worked at Cigna full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly loyal colleagues who do their best in trying circumstances

    Cons

    An acceptance of bullying amongst middle management leading to a high turnover of staff. Very little career development or training. Poor compensation and little chance of meaningful review. Shockingly overcrowded and noisy work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rip out and redesign entire middle management structure in IT. Move to new premises. Build a genuine meritocracy and end the nepotism.

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

    Pros

    Constant interaction with other countries (US, Belgium, China). Global projects.

    Cons

    There is no career at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest some money in the technologies that your teams need to work.

    Employees should be able to anonymously review their managers. This allows managers to get useful feedback and the result of these reviews should be taken into account for the annual review of these managers (e.g.: a manager with bad reviews from his employees should not get a good salary rise).

    Company policies and benefit package are quite disappointing.
