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

Pros

Forward-thinking company with great opportunities if you have the right management overseeing your work.

Cons

Mid-level micromanagement not corrected by too-busy Senior management decreases productivity and causes loss of talent. Conflicts in training program not addressed timely and subsequent impeded workflows become a blame game instead of being seen as an opportunity for improvement. Middle and Senior Management too overloaded to properly address real-time issues of staff.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your staff when they report workflow and non-support issues. Do not keep referring staff back into the same nonproductive loop and giving pat visionary jargon to solve problems.

    Pros

    Job stability is the biggest plus.

    Cons

    Cronyism - only people in inner circle seem to move up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to work on retention policy. Existing employees don't feel valued. Inspite of profits very little trickles down to mid level or entry level employees. Top management seem to get handsomely rewarded
