Current Employee - Project Manager in Gurgaon, Haryana (India)

I have been working at UnitedHealth Group full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

1) Recruitment team - Recruitment team is just as dumb as it can be - they hunt for profiles, and hire. No salary negotiation, if you can guess how urgent the opening is - they will offer you out of the way salaries - people are offered 100% hikes. Directors approve all such exceptions.
2) Heaven for female employees (with due respect to all women - please don't take me otherwise when you read this...) - Enjoy more often work from homes, in case you are planning family - you can get 1-2 months of work from home ahead of your due date, followed by 3 months of maternity leaves, and on top of it you can take one month additional leaves and followed by one month work from home. So a total of 6 months paid offs!
3) Managers - Managers are not given any value by Sr. management they are treated as coordinators, so employee have full fun (well almost). Delivery manage is where mgmt gives some value, so this works well in favor of employees.
4) This company has internal job posting - enjoy this as tool to get promotion, since managers are not believed and given value by sr management, so if you are good 'player' you can drive manger and keep asking him for promotion/salary hike- trust me 12-18 months is all it takes for a dumb but cunning employee to get both, if that doesn't work, apply for IJP and your manager will approve it and you are done. Come 18 months, apply another IJP :) Ladder up is simple for people who know how to drive manager :)

Cons

Cons are Pros from employee standpoint (listed above) :), so here is the list:
1) Poor recruitment team (specially in Hyderabad)
2) Added flexibility for female employees
3) Managers are not treated well by senior management
4) Support services are hell here - facility, infrastructure, and real-estate teams work here like govt. employees and treat other departments poorly and there is no way to complain, escalate and hence team enjoys their position best! No one listens - ask anyone in this company and people will tell you the same :)
