Pros

Telecommuting is encouraged here, salary is competitive, advancement is possible if you survive the on going layoffs across the organization that come annually. Lots of resources to get things done. Good company to add to your resume.

Cons

Tremendous organization, very segmented and hard to find people outside your division if you need to move across product lines. You will only know the people in your area, very little interaction other-wise. Corporate culture is very cold - comprised of former consultants and MBA's that take great pride in showing how smart they are. No acknowledgement of life outside of UHC at all - not even a Merry Christmas to anyone before the holiday, its all about the business and only the business, alot of kissing up to the boss and tattling about others to get ahead. They also love restructuring the management to put people with no product experience in that division to bring a new vision - which is just scary. Imagine working for someone that doesn't understand the business - this causes unrealistic expectation levels when it comes to goal setting and business objectives. Yes, the corporate culture here is very strange indeed. I know many who have passed through here, if you make it past 2 years without getting job eliminated, consider yourself lucky!

Advice to Management

More focus on the business of healthcare and less on the stock price.

    I have been working at UnitedHealth Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good, steady work. Great learning opportunities. Very little favoritism, you get ahead based on your own work. Work at home opportunities help on commuting costs.
    Great work-life balance, ample vacation time.

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive to other companies in the area. Health benefits (considering it is an insurance company) also not competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Need to increase pay to get more qualified employees.
