    Pros

    Company believes in promoting from within. Good pay for positions. Pretty good hours also. Must be a happy person to work there.

    Cons

    Work when hospitals do (24/7) so getting off on all holidays is not easy. Before moving to another position must be with company 6 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    90 day reviews on time would be nice to get appropriate feedback on weaknesses so one can improve and on areas that are already good.

    I worked at UnitedHealth Group

    Pros

    There was a positive energy at UHG, hard workers, they put serious money into their facilities, the most excellent training I have ever received in my seven years of insurance sales experience. They care about the quality and level of customer service that their members receive (from their sales agents). I've heard conflicting stories in the claims department.

    Cons

    They lacked a personal touch; poor communication skills. Our commission decreased from $70/per sale to $11/per sale. Instead of setting up a meeting to discuss this with their sales force, they printed out a memo and taped it to our computers. They decreased earnings so much that every sales agent (including me) decided to resign and become an independent agent. Although no one was fired, it was impossible to earn a decent living. I heard that after the sales team left, they did away with the captive field sales rep position and are just using contracted agents.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate to your team. Set obtainable expectations. You do have the best initial training; make sure you follow through as training should be ongoing. You can't learn everything in one month...especially in the ever-changing health insurance industry.
