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 Management

Encourage more good work and discourage clawing to the top.

    Pros

    Organization has one of the largest accumulations of intelligent people in the industry.

    Cons

    No alignment, the company exists to support UnitedHealthcare and Uniprise (other UHG companies get a "pass" on working with Ingenix and don't), the industry dislikes the UHG relationship and that impedes the true value, and UHG treats its employees like sled dogs (if you pull the sled fast - you get an extra piece of meat. if the sled tips over - one/many of you will be shot and discarded).

    Advice to Management

    Run it like a separate business - stop living off the mothership and focus on the industry.

    UnitedHealth Group is a toxic culture, know what you are getting into before you take that job.

    Pros

    Compensation is decent, when they pay you accurately and on time.

    Cons

    Very difficult organization to navigate. The lack of accountability, and the silos in the organization do not allow for collaborative work.

    Advice to Management

    Let someone run the company who has a clue about leadership. Business ethics seems to be a foreign language.
