    Pros

    This is a great place to start a career. Good training programs. The company greatly embraces working from home. Your best bet is to develop some skill and expertise in one of their systems or processes. This will give you exposure around the company. Also, Look into other areas of the business like OptumHealth and UHN. These areas generally provide more dynamic programs and leadership.

    Cons

    Starting pay is generally low and doesn't go up much from there. Better to leave the company and come back. This is not as risky as it sounds and many employees to this. Just don't burn any bridges.

    Advice to Management

    In addition to your merit based incentive program add one that is tenure based as well to encourage good people to stay.

    Pros

    High-profile projects, many businesses within the group. Dynamic. Ambitious people.

    Cons

    Cutthroat competitiveness that starts at the top and never stops. If you want to spend half your day making sure someone else gets the blame that something didn't complete the day before it actually began, and you don't mind sacrificing others, it might be the place for you. Benefits are appalling for a healthcare company. Corporate infrastructure is a morass.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage more good work and discourage clawing to the top.
