Pros

Great environment to gain knowledge about the health care industry. So much going on with every aspect of the business. Very good at moving employees between segments for those interested in getting more experience in different areas. Very intelligent workforce! Great for networking!

Cons

Very individualistic culture. Management changes frequently diluting the effectiveness of their talent and human capital processes creates significant overlap in roles.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look to ways that you improve how you manage your talent. A great employee base, but you're unable to fully tap it because of some poor investments in leadership capabilities.

    Pros

    Respected company inside and outside of industry; diverse corporation allowing for various oppportunities at all times; a very stable organization in a challenging industry;

    Cons

    Beyond capacity work loads; talent retention struggles; career paths limited; under resourced in key areas; lacks employee centric feel; heavily matrixed organization

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Establish a more aggressive philosophy around retaining existing talent. Generate a more employee centric culture, reducing some of the coldness that naturally comes with being a large corporation.

    I worked at UnitedHealth Group

    Pros

    Salary including 1 year guarantee, benefits offered on day one of employement, vacation/sick time off, telecommute

    Cons

    Too many VP's, Managers, Directors and mutiple layers of management, my own personal experience working for my manager was the worst experience I have experienced in my career, not professional, rude, 24/7 e-mail's, traveling for meetings that were not necessary, training that did not help, pricing of products uncompetitive, favoring other employees, work week was not even close to 40 hours, cost of employee benefits were very high, impossible to get problems taking care of with the layers of departments and 1-800 #'s.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with more respect and trust. More training and developing and time for learning what their job consists of. When focusing on the bottom line of #'s and profits look into the real reason the products are selling or not selling in a marketplace.
