    I worked at UnitedHealth Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Paychecks, although small (for performance-level employees), arrive on time and don't bounce.

    Cons

    Health benefits are poor, and vision benefits are even worse.
    Instability, poor planning, and continual outsourcing resulted in employees arriving at work to find their jobs were transferred to India overnight.
    Countless incompatible computer systems are loaded with bugs and data discrepancies, due to UHG buying up every small competitor to become a near-monopoly.
    Bottom-feeding to hire the cheapest possible employees, and then promoting from within, has produced the expected (poor) quality of middle management.
    Paying over $50,000,000 to "key" executives while scrimping on employee compensation has resulted in a situation where a bumbling "Beaker" can report directly to a COO.
    Turnover was unexpectedly high, due to new employees leaving as soon as possible.

    Advice to Management

    Cheapest is not always best. Bottom-feeding to hire the cheapest employees who are then promoted into management can explain much of the reason middle management is so stunningly deficient. In fact, one wonders if middle managers even know how to spell "MBA". In the current economy, plenty of competent, educated, and seasoned managers are available. Swap out your failed middle managers for professional managers with *successful* experience.
