I have been working at UnitedHealth Group full-time

Pros

Company has experienced growth year after year. Great vacation plans. Flexibility to work remotely from home in many positions. Options for many different shifts. Overtime often available if you want to make extra money.

Cons

Acquired by United Health Group and has experienced changes. Evenings and weekends required in some positions. 2 Holidays a year requirement in most positions. Bonus payouts are less than they used to be (but still more than you might expect at any other company).

Advice to Management

Recognize current staff for their hard work. Communicate bonus payouts clearly to employees.

    I have been working at UnitedHealth Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Work at home is a big pro, no clothing expense, no gas and no eating out. Retirement match is pretty good, benefits are fairly inexpensive

    Cons

    Raises are minimal and sometimes non-existent in a bad economy. Deductible is really high for employees.

    I have been working at UnitedHealth Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    UHG offers a very competitive benefits package, and in certain offices very nice and handy amenities. Attention is given to work/ life balance. Some managers really go out of their way for you to assist you. You do get enough free time to make some cool projects on your own at times.

    Cons

    It is a large organization. Some managers may not even know what you do. Look up "matrix organization" to learn what you will be in for. There can be very little accountability and most decisions will end up being decided through politics. Network with leaders, look for movers and shakers, or count on your career stagnating.

    Advice to Management

    The thick layer of middle managers creates a recipe for lack of accountability and enormous redundancy. Way too many planners and not enough doers. Unfortunately cutting the ranks of PMs would cause a revolt.
