Former Employee - Senior Program Manager in Minneapolis, MN
Former Employee - Senior Program Manager in Minneapolis, MN

I worked at UnitedHealth Group full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Pay and benefits are average. Good place to learn how health care works. IT appeared to have good processes in place for portfolio management, development and testing.

Cons

I worked on the Corporate business side with many layers of management. In many cases no clear concensus of who is is the decision maker. Very high turnover when you count employees leaving UHG, contractors leaving and employees moving from department to department seeking sanity. Management appeared to have very good technical or operational skills, but their people skills as manageers was dismal at best.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Save a ton of mony by cutting down the layers of management. Let people do what you hire them for, not to duplicate the efforts of others so their management looks like they are doing something.

    Current Employee - IT Director in Minneapolis, MN
    Current Employee - IT Director in Minneapolis, MN

    I have been working at UnitedHealth Group full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The benefits and salary are top notch. Some of the people are intelligent and great to work with. Most people want to do the right thing.

    Cons

    Some groups have abandoned the idea of normalcy all together. This is a work first, live second type of company and work life balances isn't good. Downsizing has occurred quite a bit lately, despite record revenue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time on doing work than tracking time.
