    I have been working at UnitedHealth Group full-time

    Pros

    Great co-workers, solid management, great work-life balance, good telecommuting and work from home policy. If you can get benefits from your spouse / partner and can handle not making the market salary, then it's a good place. Very good work-life balance and very accommodating for your personal needs.

    Cons

    Low pay scales, Poor Medical coverage - only United plans are available and only high-deductible plans. For anything not considered 'preventative', you have to pay 100% out of pocket until you reach your deductible. The lowest deductible option is around $2,000. This is the first place I've worked where I had to think twice before taking my kids to the doctor when they're sick. It's insulting that they don't discount their own services to their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take action on the employee surveys you run. Every year the feedback is that employees are not happy with the medical benefit, but the message we receive is that 'it's the future of health care'. Even if that's true, shouldn't employees get a break? Provide a non-high deductible plan at a discount to your employees and the word will go out that United takes care of their employees. Combining that with lower pay scales and you're going to lose your talent.

    Pros

    Lots of innovation opportunities and the company makes a genuine effort to listen to employees and affect change. Company also values go-getters and people who bring out of the box thinking to their job

    Cons

    The salaries honestly suck and there is a wide disparity in how people with same abilities are rewarded. Hence my title of review

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward people appropriately and don't wait until people threaten to quit

    Pros

    You're literally thrown to the dogs! So it's fight or die! But with this, you learn fast, and you learn hard. Not for the tender hearted!

    Cons

    High turnover and long work hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to distribute the work and be proactive in hiring people to share the work load. A lot of quality people have left the company.
