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

    Pros

    * Lot of time of time off
    * Depending on the job, you may be able to work some days at home
    * Many procedures to help you do your job

    Cons

    * Seems pay is a little low
    * Uses stacked ratings where pressure is on to rate people so some percent do not get increases or bonuses. This leads to politics about who doesn't get the bonus.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of stacked ratings.

    I worked at UnitedHealth Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to work on many and varied projects. Most employees are easy to work with and try to be helpful, they really care about the quality of their work.
    Offers many courses to enhance your knowledge.

    Cons

    Extremely inconsistent, management changes course and leadership about every 3-6 months (in some cases complete opposite direction). People have been promoted to Managment positions without background or knowledge of the division they are leading; bypassing more qualified candidates (tends to follow clique). Senior management does not know how each division, purchased by Optum had created such as successful organization (why each company was purchased in the first place).
    No work/life balance at this company. PTO allotted is nice, but extremely hard to utilize especially toward the end of the year, even if goals have been attained. Lots of stress and morale is very low.

    Advice to Management

    Constantly changing direction and focus is confusing to employees, partners, and clients. Leaders need to have background and knowledge of the divisions they lead instead of having their junior employees train them in their job.
    Products are very stale and outdated. Review the employee feedback and make meaningful changes.
