Generally a good company, but not in touch with people who don't work in Chicago

Pros

Pay is reasonably good, and benefits are ok, unless you live in an area where United Healthcare isn't a big insurer. Generally a well respected company, which is nice. "Meritocracy' is good in theory...

Cons

The execution of meritocracy is so dependent on your manager that it isn't really a meritocracy. It all comes down to how "connected" you are with others (above you, that is). There is a constant push to "do more," but some times, you just can't do as much as management wants you to. They are slow to fill vacancies to save some money while the current employees pick up the slack of empty positions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work with off-site employees more. Find an alternative healthcare program for people in areas not well served by United Healthcare.

    Pros

    Vast FMCG exposure. Generally good people.

    Cons

    Um, typical big company limitations - little reward for the ability to perform with client, outside of defined role responsibilities.

    Pros

    Company has many courses available. Some departments offer employees the ability to work from home. Great company to start at if you want to work in a CPG company.

    Cons

    Too much outsourcing which has affected the quality of deliverables. Low morale among long term employees who remember the good old days. Work-life balance is non-existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want good people to stay, they must be offered better compensation, or more work-life balance.
