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

    Pros

    UHG is a very stable and successful company. I feel like I don't have to worry about them going under or laying off tons of people. They have a solid future. Almost every single person I have met there is super nice and helpful. Each boss I have had has been very understanding and accommodating to my needs as my family is very important to me. I could see working for them for a long time. Many of the people I meet here have worked for UHG for 20, 30 years or more. Good benefits.

    Cons

    You can get stuck in a position and never grow or get promoted. Raises are very small.
