    I have been working at UnitedHealth Group full-time

    Pros

    Great co-workers, solid management, great work-life balance, good telecommuting and work from home policy. If you can get benefits from your spouse / partner and can handle not making the market salary, then it's a good place. Very good work-life balance and very accommodating for your personal needs.

    Cons

    Low pay scales, Poor Medical coverage - only United plans are available and only high-deductible plans. For anything not considered 'preventative', you have to pay 100% out of pocket until you reach your deductible. The lowest deductible option is around $2,000. This is the first place I've worked where I had to think twice before taking my kids to the doctor when they're sick. It's insulting that they don't discount their own services to their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take action on the employee surveys you run. Every year the feedback is that employees are not happy with the medical benefit, but the message we receive is that 'it's the future of health care'. Even if that's true, shouldn't employees get a break? Provide a non-high deductible plan at a discount to your employees and the word will go out that United takes care of their employees. Combining that with lower pay scales and you're going to lose your talent.

    Pros

    Base pay, overtime opportunities, 401k , options to advance in company if you are willing to relocate.

    Cons

    Schedule changes on little notice. Heath insurance options are limited. New location so opportunities are limited unless you are willing to relocate.

    Pros

    Great company, Very nice corporate location. All of the employees are top notch people. The compensation if well above average.

    Cons

    The Senior management is very cold. Movement within the company is almost impossible unless you know someone. The call centers are very structure and almost robotic. Opportunites will only come if you " Sell your soul". People have great background and great skills but you will easily be passed if someone has 0.01 metric higher than your metrics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the employee have a say on your bonus. Maybe that will help the management care more. Know who your team members are when choosing different projects. Base the criteria of help from previous experience instead of small metrics where very qualified people are passed up.
