Very political culture

Former Employee - Senior Project Manager in Plymouth, MN

I worked at UnitedHealth Group as a contractor (less than an year)

Pros

Can provide Large company opportunities

Cons

you need to spend a large part of your time watching your back. It seems that the culture is to put others down to bring yourself up.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more insistant on your goal of improving the culture. Some companies are just giving it lip service.

    I worked at UnitedHealth Group

    Pros

    The ability to telecommute is terrific. Technical support for telecommuters is excellent.

    Cons

    Highly political old boys network. As a result, women seeking opportunities have become quite vicious vying for the few token opportunities available to them. The company's lack of vision, coupled with deep pockets from the "mothership," Unitedhealth Group, means that Optum chases every "shiny" new healthcare trend that comes along.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the layers of middle management. Beneath it you'll find some exceptional talent. Set a strong, strategic direction for the organization and stick with it. Practice the cultural values that are espoused; move out leadership that refuse to adhere to them.
