Pros

It's a large company with lots of opportunities to grow your career. There are offices throughout the US. Leadership shares their vision with the company. You get a nice amount of PTO as soon as you start. There is a generous Employee Stock Purchase Program. Though the industry is rapidly changing, UHC is a leader in the industry and has had better results than competing health insurance organizations. The company values are honored by employees and leadership.

Cons

Because the organization is so large, sometimes you feel lost in the shuffle or detached. The health plan isn't great (only offer high deductible options). They don't match 401k until after the first year.

Advice to Management

With a company so large, there are many opportunities to grow your career. Make it easier to navigate career options/growth opportunities.

    Pros

    High degree of autonomy. Most everything is virtual. Telecommuting is rapidly becoming the norm. Limited geographic restrictions. Strong overall corporate performance.

    Cons

    Most activities run thru Minneapolis. Investments are often funded in fits and spurts. Compensation guidelines are inconsistent. Corporate culture is talked about, but not policed.

    Advice to Management

    Increase focus on talent management. UHC vs. Optum siloes and tension is real and needs to be addressed.

    Great people, plenty of opportunities for process improvement. Opinions are appreciated

    Cons

    Big company... change is constant, but slow moving. Typical problems you'd face working in a company this large.
