    I worked at UnitedHealth Group

    Pros

    Work life balance. Company has stable growth.

    Cons

    Management changes seem to be never ending
    Benefits are actually pretty poor for a large health care company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve benefits and stop making regular employees feel like their job maybe in jeopardy just because of management shake-ups

    I have been working at UnitedHealth Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    They will pay you above market,and may be more then you asked for.

    They will decorate the office very nicely on each festival, etc.

    Work life balance... work from home as much as you care.-- Hell Yeah... Send your wives here guys...

    If you are a tester you may get some healthcare domain knowledge. But be prepared for insane hours.

    You can enjoy as much as you want, if you like that. Long benches.. and light work in 70 % of dev projects.

    If you are good at kissing *** and butter up. Your growth will zoom.

    Cons

    Your technical growth will crawl, if it doesnt stop outright.

    They will pay you above market at the time of joining and will average it out by giving you paltry hikes in the years to come.

    No parking. Availaible only for managers and even their its a queue. I think there is a queue for bike
    parking also.. I think if you stay for 5 years you will get a bike parking sticker.

    No fulltime seats. If you are working 11-8:30. Some insurance guy would show at 5:30 and kick you out of your desk. Then for the next 3 hours..grab the first chair you get.

    No process for anything, from parking to to your review everything would change from one manager to other.

    Each team follows its own process, no standarization even when it comes to appraisal process. Its not even CMMI level 3.What I was thinking?

    Non existent HR in hyderabad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a chain of command. Create standarized processes.

    Stop hiring and keeping morons just because they have paper experience.

    Appoint people as SPOC's for different tasks.From Facilities to HR, there should be someone who is responsible for the leaking taps to the missing documents.

    Run it proffessionally, We understand that you are getting buckloads of healthcare money. But you dont have to sqaunder it in every possible way. You can create a IT company and a legacy.
