I have been working at UnitedHealth Group full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

UHG is a company committed to providing services and creative solutions in both the healthcare & services sector. They leaders promote innovative ideas in many areas -- reimbursement methologies, benefit services & technology just to name a few. Adopting a "culture" within the company from a top-down approach speaks to their desire to be a leading company were people have a want to be be employed.

Cons

With all of the acquisitions over the past years, our customers really don't know who we are... The compnay need to strategically consolidate both business & technology functions to increase our 'brand' awareness. The daily activities to accomplish projects are swamped with "process" -- it needs to be streamlines/reduced for more effective and efficient productivity. More controls are necessary to limit the amount of off-shore resourcing so that the the knowlege stays in-house & on-shore.

Advice to Management

Share the profits with the employees who work very hard to delivery quality products & services that enable the company to thrive. A dividend is nice for stock holders, but rewarding employees (merit increase & bonuses) will go a long way in encouraging employees to work even harder and smarter. This will lessen the attrition of highly skilled workers.

    Pros

    Telecommuting-centric working on meaningful projects

    Cons

    Benefits are a joke. Pay is not consistent with value added. Not focused on project delivery, only next sale.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that consulting is not selling widgets. It is delivering solutions. Give people support to do their jobs.

    Pros

    Free coffee and six kinds of tea. Stock-purchase plan is good, if you have any money left over in your miniscule paycheck.

    Cons

    The minute a State Legislature forgets to require that their Medicaid payments be processed within the U.S., all jobs for that state are sent offshore. Employees who are competent don't stay long. Middle managers who have stayed long enough to get promoted are worse than no manager all.

    Advice to Management

    There are so many competent managers currently looking for work, that now would be a good time to clean house and replace your current middle managers with competent professionals. Employees not meeting the minimum requirements for their jobs could also be replaced as well, but not until new managers are in place who can recognize a competent employee when they see one. Otherwise, your current managers will just continue to make current problems worse.
