Current Employee - Director in Gurgaon, Haryana (India)

I have been working at UnitedHealth Group full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great learning opportunities, flexible work culture, performance based growth. Aggressive growth plans (at least in India) provide multiple career options for people looking for varied experience.

Cons

Internal politics, silos and one-upmanship sometimes tend to act as roadblocks to even more aggressive growth. The organization is so large, you will always be a small fish in a BIG pond.

    Pros

    You receive decent pay and benefits.

    Cons

    You will be miserable with everything else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should actually give promotions to your top performers; and not to people with whom you are friends (and I say this based on being able to compare stats of everyone in the department).

    What was once a great place to work is now horrible. Stay away unless entry level or unemployed.

    Former Employee - Senior IT Systems Management Consultant in Rocky Hill, CT (US)

    I worked at UnitedHealth Group full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible Work Schedule, Work remotely via VPN, Plentiful free parking, good 401K matching, Employee Stock Purchase Plan, Easy to travel to, pay cafeteria on site,

    Cons

    Constantly in a state of re-organization and change, poor healthcare benefits, little to no investment into training for IT employees, no career path options, expected to go way above and beyond job description and grade level without financial compensation or authority to perform role (in an individual contributor role, I was expected to manage a team with 8 direct reports and 25 subordinates), expected to manage your managers and manage up, senior management talks the talk, but does not walk the walk with regards to the Optuminsight code (Integrity, honesty, etc).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Execute on a plan to completion to rectify the poor scores on the annual vital signs employee survey that's given every year. Year after year the scores on the vital signs surveys are consistently negative in the areas I've outlined in the cons section of this review. The employees are speaking to you but you are not listening.
