Pros

Fair and equitable place, room for advancement, support of goals

constant fluctuations and re-orgs, not enough team building situations or activities

Advice to ManagementAdvice

a clearer idea of what our overall goal and outlook is without any of the bells and whistles would be nice. show us that the daily stuff that affects us also affects you.

    I have been working at UnitedHealth Group

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Encourage more good work and discourage clawing to the top.

    I worked at UnitedHealth Group

    Pros

    Organization has one of the largest accumulations of intelligent people in the industry.

    Cons

    No alignment, the company exists to support UnitedHealthcare and Uniprise (other UHG companies get a "pass" on working with Ingenix and don't), the industry dislikes the UHG relationship and that impedes the true value, and UHG treats its employees like sled dogs (if you pull the sled fast - you get an extra piece of meat. if the sled tips over - one/many of you will be shot and discarded).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Run it like a separate business - stop living off the mothership and focus on the industry.
