    I worked at UnitedHealth Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I made lifelong friends at this job which was meaningful and significant. It was easy to get hired at the time, and those that were in charge of keeping up company morale put a lot of effort into it, even if they weren't 100% successful.

    Cons

    Frequent layoffs and a fast turnover, however, they did not replace employees that left. Therefore workloads were increased but not met with matching salary increases. Very small raises, few bonuses. Too many virtual employees. Didn't feel valued. Management did not work well together.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees what they deserve so they stay at the job. People want to work there but they don't feel compensated. And if you are increasing someone's workload, give them the title and respect they deserve for taking on a leadership position, instead of taking advantage of their loyalty and commitment to the job.

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

    Pros

    Company offers large company buying power and stability. Facilities are always well kept

    Cons

    Inter team work is frowned upon. Broadening technical horizons is highly discouraged. Work is only to be complete as long as it falls into a stovepipe that you serve in. Management depending on which team you fall under does not encourage free and analytical thinking and often micromanages to the 15 minute time interval for some workgroups. Work is strictly controlled through management and ability to shine is taken away by task assignment.

    Advice to Management

    Allow teams to work together in a free and open manner.
    Find ways either small or large to let employees know they are appreciated.
    Stop micro managing to the point where the management causes angst and not the work
    Create a plan or vision and stick to it. The ship cannot sail unless it knows where the endpoint is
