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

Pros

- Job autonomy, flexibility, independence
- Creating a new culture that rewards employees based on integrity, work ethic not tenure
- Solid benefits package (vacation, discounts, health plan premiums)
- Honest employees all driven toward 1 goal: helping people get healthier
- Upper management is extremely engaged

Cons

- As with any large company, you need to make sure you talk about your accomplishments with your manager/leadership or else they will never know
- Obtaining data for reporting and analysis is complicated, inaccurate and often challenging
- Upper management engagement slows projects due to competing schedules and resources
- Company culture is evolving and not yet concrete - not everyone is on the same page as to what is expected of an employee
- Heavy amount of meetings each day (mainly on the phone due to hugely a virtual environment)
- Virtual environment can be challenging (time zones, schedules etc.)
- The healthcare environment is ever-changing and extremely complex; some may not excel without the ability to be resilient to change
- Employee Health plans have huge deductibles that out way low premiums advantage

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Continue driving the company culture toward a common goal so employees know what is expected of them
- Advise leadership to delegate tasks more often so that projects can be completed under budget and on-schedule
- Advocate for stronger work/life balance (I.e. No meeting Friday afternoons)

    I worked at UnitedHealth Group full-time

    Pros

    Business continues to change due to many organizational changes, which keeps things interesting and challenging all the time. Most positions allow for a lot of growth and satisfaction. Good benefits with a lot of paid time off.

    Cons

    Current approach to managing the company's resources is lay-offs every 6 months, no rhyme or reason in how people are picked for these. You're not safe if your performance is top notch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Middle management's favoritism has to go away.

    Doesn't Recommend
