    I worked at UnitedHealth Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Free coffee, provided you have your own cup!

    Cons

    Almost degrading work experience, no privacy, no respect. Treatment is akin to that of a work camp. Supervisors have no idea what to do

    Advice to Management

    Teach supervisors the ropes so they can actually assist with workflow, instead of hiding and delegating to others who have no clue.

    Go far & get reorganized out of the picture. Look close--extremely positive reviews are new employees or faked.

    I worked at UnitedHealth Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Salary can be quite good, time off as well. Health benefits are middle of the road. The company has a good welcome, all smiles and friendly. Training used to be top notch, now it's paint by numbers type classes.

    Cons

    Dental benefits are in need of a overhaul. Many good benefits have been watered down to the point that they create a lot of confusion resulting in employees paying more than they should. Corporate reorganization is rampant at all times. No one has the same master plan resulting in having no stability or consistency. I had one manager who was with the company for 14 years who had been reorganized out of her job 6 times, finally she was reorganized while on sick leave (she was told she was fired). Ethics are applied only when senior leaders can't get around them. (particularly with plans funded by the govt). Everything is about making a buck and the members and employees be damned. It wasn't always this horrid, when I started 7 years ago it was a nice place, but the past 4 years... Sorry.... it's been going steadily downhill and picking up speed. Much of training is done by those who can't do the job or don't understand it enough to explain it. Those that did are long gone. If your manager likes you promoting is possible, if not you will find the door (or be shown it)

    Advice to Management

    Get a organizational structure and stick to it. Don't expect things to be done overnight because you failed to consider all the ramifications. Take ethics to heart and start enforcing the policies you sing about on day one. Look at the statistics of who has left over the years and who they report to, you will see patterns that are very clear, especially with regard to minority groups.
