Pharmacy Help Desk (Current Employee), Orlando – December 14, 2014
Pros: nothing good at all about this company.
Cons: short breaks..benefits are terrible.
Just finished four weeks of class room training for Aetna through Optum. Sat around eight hours a days doing basically nothing!! Except taking test after test and you have to pass with a 90 or above. You don't have to be qualified to train and they pull anyone of the floor to train and they don't know what they are doing. Pay is terrible..Dress code – more... was something to be desired. Kept stressing dress code was strict and had to be business dress and no jeans, which I didn't mind. But the majority of the people wore jeans and looked like they just rolled out of bed. Will not be going back. – less
Aetna National Network Manager (Current Employee), Work at Home – December 10, 2014
Pros: new markets and new people in every build
Cons: working in a new market does not allow for long term realtionahips building
Becasue I am on the National Build Team, i go into a new market every few months. this affords me the opportunity to learn varied markets and how differing markets operate. THis allows me to learn something new in each build and grow professionally.
Audit Consultant (Current Employee), Hartford, CT – December 8, 2014
Aetna is a great company to work for. It offers a lot of benefits to it's employees, especially to stay healthy and fit. There is good work-life balance. Management is there to help you and to help you succeed. The ability to work from home is great.
CSR (Former Employee), Dallas, TX – December 4, 2014
Pros: bonuses and benefits
Cons: no ability to grow within
This was a work at home position which is a great way to save money on commute. This was a call center type of position and there were days that the calls where at high volume, but for the most part the job was easy and actually fun. I loved all the benefits, OT, and PTO. The hardest part about this job was the growth. I is really hard to move to better – more... positions unless you were related or knew the supervisor out side of work, and even then they were all very kind people. Very organized, professional, and really care for their employees. – less

Care Management Associate (Former Employee), City of Sunrise, FL – December 1, 2014
Pros: work from home and get to travel to different parts of the tri-county and meet people.
Cons: work from home - sometimes i find myself working at night
Start my work day as soon as my children leave to school (730AM). I have my work space with a desk and work lap top. I make a few calls a day to vendors, Aetna office or broker to coordinate health events or resolve any issue. My manager is a little bit hard to work with but due to my calm personality we get along. Most of my co-workers are like friends – more... since I have been in this company for over 16 years. Hardest part of my job is ... nothing really since I love what I do. I do not see myself doing something different, but sometimes change is good. – less
Claims Benefit Specialist (Current Employee), Coraopolis, PA – November 26, 2014
Pros: pay, pto, headphones while working
Cons: everything else.
In my opinion, the work environment leaves something to be desired. The pay and paid time off are okay. However, the benefits offered by this company are TERRIBLE. For working for a health insurance company, you are not being set up for success in this area. Management is NOT helpful whatsoever in helping you to obtain goals and further develop in your – more... career path. Most of the people are disrespectful and this behavior is often rewarded. The management staff often participate in inappropriate behavior and have been reported to HR on numerous occasions with no resolve.You are looked down upon for asking questions and humiliated on a regular basis. Despite the values that they claim to possess, Aetna is a terrible company. If you are seeking an opportunity that allows for growth, personal development, and a tolerable environment- this is most definitely NOT the place for you. – less
Dedicated Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), Sandy, UT – November 24, 2014
Pros: constantly learning, room for improvement, interaction with constituents is enjoyable
Cons: working at home and becoming isolated
I work remotely from my home, I have a section of my house dedicated to working. I boot up my computer, log in to my phone and desktop through a VPN connection. I bring up my systems, then log into the queue at 8:35 am MST and proceed to take inbound calls from facilities needing to get cases or authorizations for Inpatient (IN), Residential (RTC), – more... Partial Hospitalization (PHP), Intensive Outpatient (IOP) or routine outpatient services for mental health and substance abuse. I have scheduled breaks and lunch during the time from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm MST.
It is a constant learning environment due to constant changes in the health care industry. I am continually researching and refreshing my knowledge on the ICD-9 and ICD-10 code changes, CPT codes, and legislation.
Hardest part of the job is trying to keep up with the constant changes in the health care industry.
I enjoy helping constituents and it is very satisfying and fulfilling. – less

Pros: very good education program.
Cons: less chance to collaborate when all working at home.
Able to schedule my own calls for the day for Case Management. Learned new ways of interviewing Case Management Clients in different states. Good Management styles. The most enjoyable part of the job was the fact that it was Telephonic Case Management and no real office politics.
CSO Supervisor (Current Employee), Houston, TX – November 20, 2014
Pros: flexible schedules
Cons: long hours
Great company to work for. I was able to learn Workforce Management, including appropriate staffing, call volume forecasting, call trending and types.
