Topics regarding layoffs at Aetna Inc.

The way things are going, Aetna will offshore every position except CEO and other executives! So, if you want a low paying job and a low cost of living, move to China, India or the Philippines, because that's where all Aetna jobs are heading! So, my... read more

Medicity is an IT shop, AETNA does not know how to manage software business. The promise was that Medicity will operate as a separate business within Aetna, under its existing leadership lineup but AETNA is already trying to shake the execs up. Let's... read more
Most of our layoffs here at Aetna have to do with acquisitions - downsizing is never isolated and is prompted by some kind of acquisition or merger - as soon as we make the move, there are redundancies, potential savings, etc.
I used to work at Coventry Health Care, and moved to Aetna a few years ago. I was let go in 2013, I was able to move on very quickly though. It's difficult to go through cuts if you have family and other financial responsibilities. But if you are... read more
