    I worked at United Therapeutics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Benefits (health insurance, 401K, stocks), gym, free coffee and lunch

    Cons

    The department you work in and who you report to completely directs your work experience. There are no structured performance reviews for supervisors and direct reports. Direct reports are expected to have an on-going conversation with their manager, which places a burden on the direct reports to manage themselves if their manager is not interested in helping them succeed. In many departments, there is little to no...

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. All the perks (the gym, the free food, etc.) are nice to have, but it's all meaningless if your people aren't treated with respect or worth.

    Pros

    gym , coffee , free breakfast and lunch , stock

    Cons

    Management creating jobs for people and giving out jobs to people that don't deserve them. Managers being nasty to their workers and acting as if they are better than everybody else.

    Advice to Management

    Stop allowing people to act like this is their company, treating people like they don't matter. If you notice people leaving departments and people continually getting fired from the same department open your eyes it might not be the people. Its your manager she's difficult to work with. I feel sorry for the people that had to return to working for certain people but I know the ones that escape are so happy. The...
