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

Pros

- Job autonomy, flexibility, independence
- Creating a new culture that rewards employees based on integrity, work ethic not tenure
- Solid benefits package (vacation, discounts, health plan premiums)
- Honest employees all driven toward 1 goal: helping people get healthier
- Upper management is extremely engaged

Cons

- As with any large company, you need to make sure you talk about your accomplishments with your manager/leadership or else they will never know
- Obtaining data for reporting and analysis is complicated, inaccurate and often challenging
- Upper management engagement slows projects due to competing schedules and resources
- Company culture is evolving and not yet concrete - not everyone is on the same page as to what is expected of an employee
- Heavy amount of meetings each day (mainly on the phone due to hugely a virtual environment)
- Virtual environment can be challenging (time zones, schedules etc.)
- The healthcare environment is ever-changing and extremely complex; some may not excel without the ability to be resilient to change
- Employee Health plans have huge deductibles that out way low premiums advantage

Advice to Management

- Continue driving the company culture toward a common goal so employees know what is expected of them
- Advise leadership to delegate tasks more often so that projects can be completed under budget and on-schedule
- Advocate for stronger work/life balance (I.e. No meeting Friday afternoons)

    I worked at UnitedHealth Group full-time

    Pros

    Business continues to change due to many organizational changes, which keeps things interesting and challenging all the time. Most positions allow for a lot of growth and satisfaction. Good benefits with a lot of paid time off.

    Cons

    Current approach to managing the company's resources is lay-offs every 6 months, no rhyme or reason in how people are picked for these. You're not safe if your performance is top notch.

    Advice to Management

    Middle management's favoritism has to go away.
