    I worked at UnitedHealth Group part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Decent salary and benefits, work from home.

    Cons

    You have to work multiple weekends that was not clear upon hiring. Required to put in schedule for 6 month period which was not informed of during interview or hiring process. Unrealistic job expectations while setting employees up for failure. Over hired employees, reporting large number of employees hired for the year, then let go many....mostly older nurses!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn people & management skills, listen to employees.

    Pros

    Large company with a lot of resources.

    Cons

    Political positioning, looking good rather than actual results oriented. Submit or be labled a trouble maker and possilby squashed. Leaders running business segments they know nothing about and then caving to the demands of their leaders, who also know nothing about running that particular business segment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you acquire a company, you'll want to learn the, few, simple key factors that made that company successful and a desireable acquisition. As a leader, after learning these key factors, you'll want to stand-up to your upper management and take a stand on those key factors. If these key factors are in conflict with the way management wants to run the business, then you'll need to have the backbone to disagree with them and demand they listen and adjust their strategy. If you don't have the backbone, then UHC will learn the hard way that they cannot acquire TPA's because they are unable to run them properly and destroy them in the process. Or they will continue their missteps and acquire them, run them into the ground, and destroy careers and lives in the process and ultimately alienate customers.
