Featured Review

Current Employee - IT Program Manager

I have been working at UnitedHealth Group full-time

Pros

Culture seems to be a high priority for the company (Stems from Wickman & Hemsley, which is good) and the benefits are decent (Including the ESOP)

Cons

Nothing hug. Internal politics, which is usual for a company this size. Some areas there are career advancement challenges, which again is usual for a company this size. Overall it's a good place to... work and build a career

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work.

I have been working at Talecris

Pros

Benefits are outstanding! Salary is competitive and the work we do saves lives and adds money to the local economy every day! Very rewarding!

Cons

Hours can be gruelling. Staff attendance is sometimes a problem. Fighting the stigma that plasma donation has with some communities is a constant battle.

Advice to Management

Do not get too greedy. Employees need their holidays to be with their families.
