I have been working at UnitedHealth Group

Pros

High-profile projects, many businesses within the group. Dynamic. Ambitious people.

Cons

Cutthroat competitiveness that starts at the top and never stops. If you want to spend half your day making sure someone else gets the blame that something didn't complete the day before it actually began, and you don't mind sacrificing others, it might be the place for you. Benefits are appalling for a healthcare company. Corporate infrastructure is a morass.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Encourage more good work and discourage clawing to the top.

    I worked at UnitedHealth Group

    Pros

    If you can work in the system you can earn a decent living. The rewards were much better when their stock was a high perfomer. Salaries are below maket, but the benefit package is ok. If you can fit into their system there are opportunities to advance by moving between departments and divisions.

    Cons

    Management is ruthless and has little regard for employees. It is definetly a "results at all costs" organization. The Human Resources department is really just a computer program. The bonus programs they have are very confusing, and typically you have no idea how to win in the system. Goals come from the top down with not logic. The goals tend to be extremmly high and very unreasonable. They justify this by saying "it's what our stockholders must have!"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize the value of your employees more.
