I have been working at UnitedHealth Group full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Company does promote *some* individuals very quickly all the way up to the senior management level, regardless of the persons age. Opportunities to learn the business and have exposure to all levels of management and take on new responsibilities. Good paid time off and work/life balance.

Cons

Many acquisitions over the years means lots of outdated systems that are not integrated which make for what seems to be a straight forward request for data to become a huge, time consuming task. Constantly asked to innovate, improve processes, and a greater level of detail in financial reports...yet our systems/tools again make the process time consuming, tedious, inefficient, and prone to errors. Health benefits offered to employees are the worst I have seen at any company. In an effort to continue to improve profitability, constantly squeezing expenses out meaning office is pretty bare-bones and seems like such a huge request to get basic office supplies.

    Pros

    Family atomsphere, freedom, team environment. Company has strong moral values.

    Cons

    Have no real say in decision making process even when you are senior management. 2 year non compete agreement, so if you leave you cannot work in the industry for that period of time.

    Pros

    Opportunity to telecommute if approved.

    Cons

    A lot of favoritism regarding promotions, access to educational funding. Dictator approach to managing employees. A lot of programs created at the corporate level are not support by management. The parent company UHG is very disconnected with the other business segment.

    Advice to Management

    Have VP, Directors and Manager compensation also be based on the number of employees promoted, employees who obtain additional training, certifications or degree with their team and their own engagement with their team. Matrix could be set to measure their effectiveness in this area. Executive Senior Management needs to hold their management team more accountable and exhibit the thing they are asking of line staff. VPs Directors and Manager are poor examples of employee engagement, and innovativeness. Move from a Authoritarian, Dictatorship approach to a Collaborative Synergistic approach. The company executives need to look at Johnson and Johnson as a model and read the book, "All in, " by Chester Elton. He also wrote the Carrot Principle.
