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

    Pros

    Good salary, but better negotiate before joining.
    Work from home facility.

    Cons

    All processes are very lengthy and service teams are not professional.
    Does not pay all employees in same level equally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All employees in same level should be paid equally. It demoralizes employees who get less for the same work and in same designation. There should be normalization process.

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

    Pros

    The work pressure is lesser as compared to other IT companies with all the in house projects and thus job security

    Cons

    The location of the noida office is too far to even travel by a cab. Apart from that I don't see any drawback.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please upgrade the salaries of the new joinees and match the improving industry standards.

    Pros

    Good work culture, Employee Engagement , Less hike

    Cons

    Not too good in technology advancement , need to explore things and be a self learner .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hike and Promotions for relevant candidates should be taken care of , promotion should not be just time/experience bound but overall contribution should be given preference and transparency should be their on hike and promotion criteria.
    Variable % & Notice period should be decreased.

    By Name it is "OPTUM" but don't be optimistic if you are a hard core developer and not very good with buttering your mgr

    I have been working at UnitedHealth Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work/Life balance
    Cool Life
    Good allowances for those who are in support :P
    Cab Facility is the one best(only) facility.
    outings and activities.
    Very few efficient managers (should be lucky enough to work with them).

    Cons

    first and foremost, Variable amount in the package(whenever you get the offer letter from UHG don't go with the CTC but check take home on monthly basis(Sure you will be shocked ) variable amount is paid on yearly basis.

    Very Bad infrastructure(no Parking facility, no proper sitting facility), Quite common to see ppl running in search of cubicles.

    They spend some lakhs of amount for converting a tester to a developer by providing external training, Many even don't understand Why ??????

    (if someone can really good at buttering the Manager then this is the best company to reach heights in your career)

    I felt strongly myself "This company is not for me or for those who completes the work and leave but it is for those ppl who wants to lead a cool life without much work", There might not be much growth professionally, This is not only my personal experience but also I have seen many of my seniors.

    Finally, NOTICE PERIOD of 3 MONTHS and no buy out option(you will have this option in the documents, But will never work in real life), However when they are recruiting a new employee they will buyout his notice period. VERY FUNNY :)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing from my side, If they go through the review comments from its employees that should be more than enough.

    Not a good company for middle management. Responsibilities are not mathcing with role. Most of the decesions are taken at onshore, leads & manager just need to do resource management
