I worked at UnitedHealth Group full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

UnitedHealth offers good benefits and opportunities to advance.

Cons

UnitedHealth is an enormous bureaucracy and it is easy to be just a cog in their machine.

Advice to Management

A mentoring program or career development program would really help you retain people who gain new skills and want to advance.

Also, developing a program to identify and retain great employees would really help you

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

    Pros

    Excellent talent and great people to work with. Plenty of work , pretty good pay, flexible schedules

    Cons

    Years behind on technology. Always seem to be 3-4 years behind on current software and hardware standards. Old systems in constant need of monitoring and fixing. Keeps you doing busy work and refuses to implement ideas that are not deemed profitable.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your product or role. Meet the people that have been there for 10 or more years and see what works and what doesn't. Trust your employees when they tell you something is wrong.
