I worked at UnitedHealth Group full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

UHG offers very competitive pay. There are many varied positions, and it is a good place to work if you enjoy challenges.

Cons

The culture is very cut-throat. Management has high expectations, but often offers little support. They definitely believe in the stick, rather than the carrot.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Abandon your ridiculous pretense that the culture has changed. When push comes to shove, performance is the value that rules the day.

  1. Company needs to hire responsible employees and not just contractors.

    Pros

    Pleasant environment, nice people, flexible hours. Good variety of projects.

    Cons

    They rarely hire any full time employees. Ratio of contractors to employees 80 to 20. This leads to a lot of confusion as projects are often started by one contractor (who then leaves) and has to be picked up by another person (often another contractor).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people! Rotating groups of contractors are not bringing value to your organization.

  2. Cons out weigh the benefits
