Reasons to Work at Aetna

More than a job

Why work at Aetna? You want to work where you can learn, grow and test yourself. And, of course, you want decent, competitive pay and benefits. You’ve come to the right place.

We offer more than 100 types of jobs, most with career tracks. Our salaries and benefits are market-competitive, with bonuses for high achievers. And our benefits come with lots of choices. All are aimed at helping you achieve health and financial well-being.

Our employees’ health and financial well-being are important to us. As of April 2015, we increased our U.S. minimum base wage to $16 per hour, for both hourly and salaried employees. And effective in 2016, eligible Aetna employees can qualify for an enhanced medical benefits program that could save some families thousands of dollars.
