    I worked at UnitedHealth Group part-time

    Pros

    Well positioned in industry - solid leader and set for future growth. Flexible work structures. Promotes a positive culture.

    Cons

    Culture, work life balance and business success metrics seem to not always be in sync with all areas. Manager discretion can impact any of these significantly - good or bad.

    Advice to Management

    Find a better way to allow your amazing employees to get different positions to develop. It is difficult to get considered for other opportunities. And - although there are flexible work structure available, the actual work life balance is not managed well. They are different.

    Pros

    great perks, benefits are ok, team morale is high, pay is decent

    management could be more friendly. I had to rely on outside support a lot due to a manager that was rude and slacked majorly but expected results.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open with the team and friendly overall.

    Pros

    This company is very easy to work with. They will give you an assignment and allow you to achieve it without a major emphasis on metrics

    Cons

    The biggest con is mandatory overtime which at times can be cumbersome. If a person wants it they can work an extra 30 hours

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to provide to all workers stand up work stations which will not only relieve employee stress, but will help prevent fatigue and low output
