Pros

Pay and that is about all

Cons

So many.....
Growing too fast with no vision
Upper management lacks common sense
Not respecting the great employees they have
Promised 2 things during the interview/ with recruiter and has not honored either one of them
Upper management is never seen and barely heard
Old systems that are constantly crashing
Metrics is all they care about
Medical benefits suck

Advice to ManagementAdvice

--Please listen to your employees we are in the field doing the job first hand. We have the best experience and knowledge to draw from for ideas and creativity
--understand work/life balance
--Follow through with everything promised in an interview and be fair to ALL employees and divisions
--If veteran employees are not cutting it, doesn't punish the newer employees that are excelling. Instead punish the veteran employees and praise the newer employees who are out shining them in many aspects.
--Use common sense and fairness

    I worked at UnitedHealth Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The pay and benefits can be alright, depending upon the your location and the position you have. Work environment is good - free coffee at most locations.

    Cons

    Big company - Hurry up and wait. Also, despite experiencing growth recently, the organization is stale at the top and in need of some new vision. Overall, employee morale is poor - despite the survey results they tout - everyone lies on those since they believe (rightly) that they are not anonymous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look hard at the management level that has been there for a number of years - they have all risen to the level of, well further then they should go.
