    Pros

    Good if people wants to grow in Healthcare

    Cons

    Lot of politics.
    Late night calls.
    No work life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why management are taking chemical engineers in to software industry(UnitedHealth Group) same question I have ask to my manager no answer. This is the one example where things will go just like that.

    If really employee respect is why Indians are staying late nights every day for sync up calls why can't they make Indians will stay late nights for 3 months and U.S teams will make next 3 months late night calls.

    No collaboration is the teams. Bad cultures throwing stones on other side or on other members.

    Company is good. No facilities,No employee respect.

    I won't recommend this company to anybody who is serious about carrier.

    Former Employee - Software Engineer  in  Hyderābād
    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Hyderābād

    I worked at UnitedHealth Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    1. Work Life Balance.
    2. Work From Home Facility (depends on your manager/policies within portfolio)
    3. Numerous Leaves
    4. Nice Cab Facility

    Cons

    1. Idiot/Unqualified Management (especially mid level) : They don't have any skills neither technical nor analytical. They lack in communications as well (specialy frm ggn and noida side)...Hats off to the recruiter...

    2. Instead of having a gud leave structure they won't allow you to take any...They will tell you to do work from home and try to give you as many work in that duration so that you can not have fun with your family members...Horrible trick for torture...

    3. Max amount of ur CTC is stuck with them as Variable. So its ur Manager's call to give you that money or not....There is no transperancy in that...They can hold your amount without giving you the proper justification or proofs...And sadly there is no hierarchy to approach for this act...

    4. There is no pattern for performence evaluation process...Employee have to accept the rating their Manager gives...There won't be any acknowledgement required from Employee side... It's kinda dictatorship...You have to accept what you manager is giving....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't simply hire your subordinates with the brand tag of "INFOSYS" with 10-15 years of experience.
    Let them go through proper recruitment process and let them clear those.
    They are the one who deals with the actual technical team who takes care of UHC technical work.
    I am lucky that I am moving out of this organization but don't make anybody feel the same.
    Thanks you!!
