Cigna

Care Senior Associate

November 2017 - August 2019 • Eden Prairie, MN

What I liked

The coworkers were the best part of the job. Many fun people to work alongside.

What I wish was different

The job content could be stressful and repetitive. Customer service roles always come with challenges. Upper management started making nonsense changes that primarily effected a very small amount of the customer base, but all of the employees in the service positions.

Advice

If you don't like speaking with people over the phone do not work for them.

Actuarial Intern

May - August 2020 • Bloomfield, CT

What I liked

I really enjoyed my experience at Cigna. They were able to create a meaningful virtual internship despite the last minute nature of the pandemic. They sent all the required equipment to work at home, which I really appreciated. I was able to work on one main project over the course of the summer that was engaging, challenging, and rewarding, and I was able to present this work at the end to the actuarial community. We also had case studies that I really enjoyed working on, multiple presentations to teach us more about the company, and leadership panels with Cigna's Executive Leadership Team. I also enjoyed how they gave interns feedback at numerous points during the summer so we could improve and develop!

What I wish was different

I wish that this experience had been in person, but given the circumstances it was completely understandable that it was virtual.

Advice

This was an incredible experience that I suggest all actuarial students apply to!

Intern

May 2018 • Bloomfield, CT

What I liked

The Healthcare Industry is complex and ever-changing. As an intern, a handful of my co-workers were eager and willing to mentor me. Over time, I was able to not only understand the industry that I work in but build relationships with people across a number of departments.

What I wish was different

I really enjoyed every aspect of this internship experience. I'm not sure what I would change.

Advice

Network as much as possible!

Actuarial Intern

May - August 2019 • Bloomfield, CT

What I liked

The community of people and how many activities there were outside of work. I got to meet so many actuaries in the company and there was a lot of support for whatever help I needed. I also had a project that I worked on and had a manager who was always able to help. I had a lot of independence and was able to learn a lot through the resources provided.

What I wish was different

N/A

Advice

Don't be afraid to ask questions. Going into an internship, you aren't expected to know a lot so take advantage and try to learn as much as possible in the limited time you have at the company.

March - August 2019 • Philadelphia, PA

What I liked

Since Cigna acquired Express Scripts in a $65 billion deal, I was a part of a lot of interesting projects in Treasury including Cash Management, Treasury systems, Fee reductions and so on.

What I wish was different

I wish I had been there for a longer time to see the projects I was working on to completion.

Advice

I think I got the most out of the experience by interacting with so many different people in different roles and kind of got an idea how their work and my work ultimately help the company achieve its goals.

Actuarial Intern

May - August 2019 • Bloomfield, CT

What I liked

There is a big actuarial student community at Cigna. The intern committee cares about everyone's experience and wants the interns to learn and do well. Bloomfield was a beautiful area and the work I had was fulfilling. The company has great leadership.

What I wish was different

I wish there were fewer projects in Excel and more in R or Python. I also wished that there were more opportunities and resources to apply data science and advanced statistical methods to the work.

Advice

If interested in Cigna, I would learn as much as I can about the health insurance industry. Learn about the Affordable Care Act, big trends in health today, and health insurance problems faced by Americans today.

Project Intern

May 2019 • Bloomfield, CT

What I liked

The TECDP Program at Cigna is a great place to develop as a rising tech professional. You can grow as much as you want to, and it's easy to find people who can help you along that journey. I had plenty of opportunities to network with executives, and reach out to so many talented employees throughout the company to learn about any technology under the sun, and how to implement it. This past summer I learned more than I could have imagined! I had the privilege of seeing how technologies are used in the industry to facilitate business functions, and keep Cigna ahead of the competition. I also had the opportunity to be a Scrum Master for an intern team, comprised of talented developers and business analysts, to create a viable product that has value and potential to make an impact. Cigna gave me the chance to work with a group of people who are determined to meet their goals!

What I wish was different

I enjoyed the project much more than my role work. If I could spend more time working on just the project, then I certainly would.

Advice

Gratitude is key. Using all the resources to your advantage will help you squeeze the most out of this internship! Network, network, and network. Make friends and seek out like minded people. If you focus on those things, you will learn plenty about the company, the industry, and yourself in the process!
