DENISON, Tex. – A big company is making big strides in Texoma. Cigna's new office building in Denison is now official. Company leaders, workers, and Denison chamber members met Friday to cut the ribbon.

The president of Cigna Healthcare says they've already played a big role in Texoma, and they're looking forward to staying here even longer.

"We only win if we have the right employees to service our members so we tend to take large positions in the critical communities like this where there's a great employee base, a great work ethic, and people passionate about servicing people because we're a health services company," said David Cordani, president of Cigna Healthcare.

From concept to completion, the entire project took about three years to complete.

    Bob, the information came from CIGNA. Didn't you hear about CIGNAs' layoffs and offices closing, and outsourcing by US companies - including CIGNA? CIGNA isn't trying to 'train each employee to give them a career', they offer jobs with paychecks - and the pay is very good for this area. They are training employees how to meet goals, hit cu's that keep going up, how to get by on Zoloft, ulcer medication, and/or sleeping pills. PD you must either be in management or just deaf and blind to others around you - how many 10yr EE's are there? Under 10 yrs? Remember, the C in CIGNA stands for CHANGE - we've all been told that one. You're right, at one time CIGNA was great but check the turnover rate now. Yes PD, 'That's LIFE' and people have to pay bills, that's why CIGNA has employees. It's just unfortunate that CIGNA has forgotten the people who got it where it is - US employees. Our Constitution guarantees freedom of speech, too bad this is where we have to 'speak' to be heard.

    I have worked for CIGNA for 20 years and would agree with Bob that it is a good place to work. While I may not agree with every decision that is made, I do accept it and continue with the job handed to me. I applied for a job with CIGNA, they did not come looking for me. If you are unhappy and find it offensive to work for a company like this..QUIT!! We should be grateful that CIGNA is a part of our community and offers so many people a job and gives back to our community in many ways to help those less fortunate. Just like any place you work, there are going to be good days and bad. That's LIFE!!

    I'm not sure where the last three people got their information but I can assure you CIGNA cares about each employee. There are a few dozen reasons why jobs are outsourced - this has happened in Sherman/Denison a great deal over the last 10 years. What you don't know is how CIGNA is trying to train each employee to give them a career - not a job. As far as the mandated overtime, that decision was made with much difficulty. We are a customer service Site - we have to have the claims paid or our members suffer. Considering everything, this is a good place to work.

    It's unfortunate that this is being displayed in such a manner. This company at one time was great to work for. However, questions should be asked about the 1000's of employees jobs that have been cut since 2002. They've closed 3 major offices across the US and opened operations in Canada, Manila, and Costa Rica. This is also a true stab at the Employees who have been cut, being that they are making the following statement ""We only win if we have the right employees to service our members so we tend to take large positions in the critical communities like this where there's a great employee base, a great work ethic, and people passionate about servicing people because we're a health services company," said David Cordani, president of Cigna Healthcare" CIGNA truly isn't a business of caring.

    I think it's sad that Cigna made their employees stay out of sight while the did the ribbon cutting. Cigna employees were told not to be seen and not to even look out the windows. What a horrible company that must be to work for. I can't imagine why the people who are responsible for the great work there are not allowed to be seen or heard from. It's just really sad.

    They make it sound like the working there is a pleasure, but they really don't care about their employees and "mandate" overtime on a regular basis. There is "life" outside of "CIGNA".
