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

Pros

UHC is innovative, aggressive, and fleet of foot in our marketplace. We seem to be successful in achieving a footprint where we choose to leave one. This means opportunity.

Cons

Sometimes I feel we might be a little too large. We think big and with the thinking big mentality we sometimes lose site of the little guy. However, the local markets appear to be a huge asset.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep pushing, but do some more mentoring for new management employees. Tough to learn all the systems.

    Pros

    Days off = OK, 18 days of PTO
    Accomodate life/work balance = able to work from home if needed

    Cons

    1. Health insurance for employees sucks = only high deductible insurance available
    2. I gave my 2 weeks in advance resignation letter to my boss who in return asking me where did I go. I told my boss I'll be working for another company who happen to be untedhealth competitor and because of this, my boss told me that I have to go right away. My boss gave indication that I will still be paid for the next 2 weeks since I gave the company 2 weeks in advance notice and it was the company decision not to honor it. These are all what I expected from the very beginning and, in my opinion, what every companies would normally do (to discharge its employees right away whenever they moved to competitor and paying salary for the next 2 weeks to honor the 2 weeks in advance notice). However, the following week, I got a call from my boss informing me that the HR decided to pay my salary just up to the day I left. I spoke with HR who was not really helpful, only saying that they can't pay me for the 2 weeks period. Not sure if this is legal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review carefully how you conduct your business for employees who resign because they are moving to your competitor.

    Pros

    Many work from home opportunities, mentoring program, look to hire vacant positions from within first, many opportunities to advance or look to work in a different dept.

    Cons

    pay increases are limited, benefit package is below what you may expect since this is a health insurance company
