multiple managers, lack of strategic focus, more talk than business discipline

Current Employee - Managing Consultant in Eden Prairie, MN

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

Pros

talented peers, competitive compensation and benefits, opportunity for career moves within the company, diverse business units, respect education and self-directed training

Cons

cutting costs at the expense of profits is the norm, business goals are not followed by action plans, little business discipline to reach performance targets, poor training of junior managers, communication and cooperation between business segments is more hostile than collegial

Advice to ManagementAdvice

talk to front line individuals with more frequency, develop project plans to support one page goals and objectives then measure quarterly and report the results to all staff

    Flexible, casual, challenging, conveniently located, work from home possibilities

    Cons

    The benefits are horrible and salary is just okay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you're not going to extend benefits to be competitive with the market, increase salaries.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Minnetonka, MN

    I have been working at UnitedHealth Group full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    This is a very secure company to work for. While there are the occasional lay-offs, for the most part, those who distinguish themselves as contributors can take comfort in having a long career.

    Cons

    The trade off to the security is that salaries tend to be on the lower end of the market spectrum.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To be more attractive to talent, either up salaries, bonus, add profit-sharing, or all of the above.
