Solid company, largest player in the market, but lets good people go too often

I have been working at UnitedHealth Group full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

work-life balance (as long as you're not in finance)
Culture was brutal years ago, but getting much better
New Office Space

Cons

I just saw some of the best leaders I work with get laid off, again and again
Typical big-company politics
HR is worst I've experienced at the Fortune 500 level. Should get better with new leader

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on building people along with business. HR is currently "not in the room" because they are seen as "not essential" to real decision making
Mobility across the organization is not great, and therefore great leaders get "stuck"

    (Optum) Horrible place to work if you have ideas of your own and can think for yourself!

    I worked at UnitedHealth Group full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Ability to work from home (at discretion of manager)

    Cons

    Red tape, upper management's inability to adapt to changing times and market, little direction from leadership, constant change (I had three different managers over the course of one year), and they have little respect for their employees. The stress level is incredible and when things get really bad, management only demands more of the employees. It's really a shame that a company that prides itself on offering programs to better the health and wellness of consumers does so little for the health and wellness of its own employees.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
