A large company has both its benefits and drawbacks.

I have been working at UnitedHealth Group

ProsUnitedHealth Group is a large organization that offers a variety of opportunities. Within the company, each business unit has its own culture, so if the fit is not right in one area, there may still be opportunities elsewhere. The company is successful at identifying employees that are strong assets to the organization and developing and promoting those individuals. The PTO plan is on par with other organizations. The company touts "work-life balance", however application of this ideal is applied inconsistenly throughout the organization. After loads of negative press, Senior Leadership seems to have made a renewed focus on providing high-quality service and taking an active role in working with government to create affordable healthcare solutions for the future.

ConsBecause the company has been mired in negative press for the last couple of years, there is a cynicism embedded into the corporate culture. The large size of the organization makes it difficult to make quick decisions, so the direction of the company often seems more reactionary than proactive. Additionally, some leaders take a micro-managing approach that can make the lives of their employees miserable. The health benefits offerred by UnitedHealth Group are poor compared with other companies, and employees are likely to have to pay a high deductible in the spirit of "consumer driven healthcare", which is just another way of cutting costs for the employer.

Advice to Senior ManagementStrategic decision-making often seems disjointed, with different groups acting on different ideas of where the company should go. The company should focus on aligning the vision across the enterprise and clearly communicate and enforce it.
