    Pros

    Work life balance, some wfh, relatively stable

    Cons

    Management is poor, raises are so small, its as if you received nothing at all, this despite record profits. There is no reinvestment into the employees. Bonuses and raises never reach the majority of employees. An excellent performance appraisal will still only get you a nominal increase, think 2 % Thats a real example of a raise at UHG for an employee exceeding expectations. Be prepared for your career growth to stagnate.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with all the jargon and corporate speak nonsense. Its not helping. People would like to receive a decent raise especially in the years that UHG is making money hand over fist.

    Pros

    United is a large company with extensive opportunities. Benefits are decent. One pool of Paid Time Off (PTO) instead of separate vacation and sick accruals is a nice benefit.

    Cons

    As with any company, certain groups can be less organized and less productive than others, depending on the product/service offering, management competence, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in training. Encourage your managers and staff to work collaboratively. Spend some money getting your remote managers together at least once a year (if not more) for team building.

    Pros

    The only saving grace one might have is advancement opportunities

    Cons

    The starting pay is not aligned with the housing prices in San Diego.

    Advice to Management

    In the short time that I have been under their employ, I have noticed one Manager in particular who tends to initiate unnecessary drama and confusion. My advice? GROW UP!

    Pros

    Great vision, great benefits, excellent employee stock purchase plan, many programs for career growth and they encourage moving up in the organization / moving internally, great flexibility - I worked from home 1x/week in my previous role and 2-3 days/week in my current role (really depends on your mgr, although it's pretty common for 1x/week or at least when they're bad weather or you have appointments)

    Cons

    Work / life balance is really set by the top manager of each department, some are fabulous and some are terrible. Right now I work for the terrible, but have worked for the fabulous before. It all depends.
