Overall its a good place to work

Network Engineer (Current Employee)
San Jose, CA

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

ProsStart of with 4 weeks PTO; You are not the only one doing your job - lots of people to assist with coverage. Pay is on par with the avg

ConsFor a network engineer - its a little too SILO'd for me. For example - as a network engineer in the datacenter, I like to unbox a new switch, rack it, stack it, cable it, configure it, and operate/maintain it. What I just listed is done by 6 different people operating in their own SILO's.

For example, there is someone that specs out heating/cooling and the physical layout of where the switch goes, then someone else unboxes/screws it in, then someone else installs modules/plugs the data cables in, then someone else configures it and powers it on.

Also - since its a Healthcare company that operates under HIPPA rules - things are locked down so tight that its impossible to get your stuff done realistically.

Also - they use HSA for their benefit package - unless you are Grade 25 or below (Desktop Support Analyst) you cannot have a PPO. (Network Engineers typically start at Grade 27ish) An HSA is where you have to contribute x dollars a month into a Savings Account and you are responsible for the first 3500 - 4500 dollars of your health costs. Full coverage kicks in after that. So if you are a healthy jock - this works against you. If you have a terminal condition - this is the best package for you. After the initial deductable - 100% coverage kicks in.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to offer a PPO

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Underemployed (Current Employee)
Minnetonka, MN

I have been working at UnitedHealth Group full-time for less than a year
