    I have been working at UnitedHealth Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great Co-workers
    Great trainer
    Great coaches
    Assisting elderly and sick patients with their medications

    Cons

    Very very sales driven environment
    Lack of actual care for patients (sales are what's important)
    Lack of rewards for employees doing job correctly
    Everything is a sale (more like telemarketers than an actual pharmacy)
    Micromanagement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care more about your workers, stop micromanaging them (there is a huge difference between having someone coach you and a difference between having several people breathing down your neck as your trying to do your job and cutting you off when you’re on the phone). Offer them more rewards for doing their job properly. My last piece of advice would be to care more about your patients as someone pursuing a career in nursing currently it makes me feel absolutely disgusted about constantly having to literally harass elderly patients and sick patients just to get a sale not to save them money but so your team can meets its sales quota. If the quota is not met then the upper management becomes upset, helping patients who may need assistance with their medications should be their top priority, but they obviously care more about the sales data in their computers then the actual patients themselves. It's telemarketing and sales disguised as a mail order pharmacy.

    Pros

    I was a part time telecommuter, it was a great set-up.

    Cons

    After a while it's hard to believe anything that comes from upper management.
