    Pros

    - Good pay
    - Reasonable work-life balance
    - Above average number of paid leaves per year
    - Good cab facility

    Cons

    - Mediocre mid and top level management
    - Disappointing culture - specifically in their Technology Engineering side
    - Unwanted bureaucracy and high handedness from supporting functions
    - Mediocre and unambitious peers with some bright ones here and there

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The 'group' is an eclectic one but the policies and processes seem to be common for everyone - this is making everyone unhappy. Carve out niche cultures according to the group and give them more autonomy.

    Pros

    Pay and Perks are good. Work like balance depends on the team you land up. There are maintenance projects which doesnt need you at office 3 days in a week at the same time there are teams that would need your attention 8 days a week !!

    Cons

    If you are not good in managing with people around its not a place for you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please chose the so called technical people with atmost care. There are many undeserved inside

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

    Pros

    Good Domain, Satisfaction that your are contributing into social cause, Decent Salary, Few Managers good and care about employee growth and benefits.

    Cons

    1. All the PE Directors are rubbish. Some play politics, some have no idea about there role and vision (Specially Product Management) and some are good in operations but handling Engineering ( You can think what values they can add)
    2. No technology advancement so have to work in old technologies and just maintained products. In simple no core engineering work.
    3. Lack of sitting arrangement and Leaders want you to sit in the office till late night and reason given is that each seat where we sit costs so spend more time. Not sure if this is Product Engineering or Support.
    4. Managers abuse employees on there seats cause there are not much conference rooms.
    5. All directors are each other friends or have have work in the past which disallows the diversification.
    6. Product Engineering groups run on perceptions and if you are good with Boss you are the best.
    7. Managers are not at all people friendly and they abuse QE on the floor.
    Advice: Never work in Quality Engineering because there is no respect for your work, you are being regularly abused by Development Managers, Development Managers have no idea about QE and they make bad statements on floor, Lack of Automation cause everything is being run by US and you can only execute.
    8. Not a employee friendly organization (Works in PE so can talk about PE)
    9. Lot of politics played by each Director and you could be meshed in them.
    10. Dev does junk work as they only either fix defects or support products and there is nothing new they plan, design and build.
    11. There is lot more to say but my advice for all intelligent engineers will be to try for better organizations and just don't go by the revenue. Revenue doesn't speak for work you have to do or respect you will get in the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management just need to reshuffle the Leadership in Product Engineering as leaders here are just making fool of organization without having vision and also just playing politics. Appreciate if each Leader is interviewed by outside Product Engineering and then test there capabilities. Good will be if you watch the Pillar presentation given by Leaders in Caresol, you will find the knowledge Leaders carry in PE. John, Paratha and Gayathri please look into the PE organization and it really needs a change and same could be seen through Vital Sign Survey. Leaders are gathering excuses to give to Executive leadership.

    Pros

    Good work life balance.
    Direct customer interaction.
    Good initial pay.
    MNC kind environment and culture.

    Cons

    Lacks minimum basic facilities such as Parking.
    No Place to sit for the employees. No dedicated work stations. New joiners have to adjust somewhere on the floor.
    Food is horrible in cafereria.
    Pathetic managers, they do nothing other than politics.
    Bonus and hikes are going down every year.
    No events in the name of cost cutting.
    No rewards and recognitions.
    No process is followed.
    No quality code is written.
    Deadly shift timings.
    Almost everyday calls with US clients.
    Total fixing in IJPs (Internal job postings). They open requisition for IJP only for formality.
    No fun at work nor in the office.
    Recuriting lot of freshers to increase profits (by charing back to onshore), hence quality is degraded.
    And many more..................

    Advice of no use. They have excuses for every advice.
