    I have been working at UnitedHealth Group

    Pros

    They are focused on achieving excellence in everything they do, relatively little 'political gamesmanship', the 'old boy network' does not live here. Focused on work/life balance. Many opportunities for growth and mentorship available.

    Cons

    Large company that grows by acquisition so there's a lot of inefficiency which can get frustrating and be a barrier. Large reliance on the 'shadow systems' that get things done when the 'official path' does not work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep focusing on efficiency and thank you for encouraging growth and excellence.

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

    Pros

    The people in my immediate work unit were great. Trained employees from all over the country remotely - very innovative system allowed trainer to view employees' computers while performing training exercises.

    Cons

    Extremely unstable work enviroment - Jobs and departments are created and dismantled without any regard for the employees. The number of jobs would be reduced in a department and the everyone had to reapply for their own jobs regardless of the amount of time at the job.
    Benefits for a health insurance company are extremely poor. No 401K match.
    Salaries are low ffor area and level of experience required
    Paid time off is a "Grant" so when you leave they don't pay you for the unused acrued days
    I couldn't get out of there fast enough and have never looked back - worst place I have ever worked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like human beings and not like a production input. There is no loyalty and a great deal of fear.
