Former Employee - Senior Business Analyst in Columbia, MD
Former Employee - Senior Business Analyst in Columbia, MD
No opinion of CEO

Pros

They have very knowledgeable employees

Cons

Average to below average salary Weak bonuses Most Promotions are given based on nepotism or friendships and result in people being ineffective in their positions

Advice to Management

Reduce all the layers of management Dont let a new VP of Operations, coming from Account Management, bring their admin assistant over and make her manager when she has not been mentored for that position Recognize your frontline employees Hire managers and directors who are LEADERS and have people skills

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule Telecommuting Friendly people decent PTO

    Cons

    Poor to average wages For a company of this size, the benefits package should be more competitive. Poor raises, and bonuses. The communication between leadership and employees needs improvement. Micro management like you wouldn't believe.

    Current Employee - Director in San Francisco, CA
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Job and career opportunities Challenging work Work/life balance Organization trying to adapt & be an innovative leader in a changing market place

    Cons

    Poor medical benefits strange given we are a health care benefits corporation Difficult to maneuver within large organization to locate right people/team Significant process overload while trying to work with IT Slow to respond to changing environment Often times manual processes, workarounds institutionalized due to cost and time to delivery of IT. Complex IT infrastructure which can result in difficulties in getting member claims processed correctly.

    Advice to Management

    Many organizations are going to OptumInsight to do IT workarounds outside of the core UHG IT systems because they are cheaper and can do the work faster highlights an organizational issue with IT. We are all the same organization.
