I have been working at UnitedHealth Group

Pros

Plenty of support while you get up to speed on company/industry knowledge.
Genuinely feels like a team environment.
Colleagues are personable and easy to get along with.

Cons

Workload can fluctuate quickly, making work / life balance challenging.
Benefits and pay are just so-so; think twice if you are looking to maximize your financial benefit (esp. on a $ per hour basis).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You've succeeded in building an engaged, motivated team who genuinely support the company objectives and take a personal stake. The flip side is that when pay or promotion policies make feel people slighted, that gets taken personally too. Framing company priorities in terms of all stakeholders (and not just customers + owners) would do much to generate loyalty.

    I have been working at UnitedHealth Group full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    They pay decent, better than the local jail, which is the OTHER major employer.

    Cons

    With the new Quality scoreoffs thing and the mass exodus of employees from Kingston, they are hurting for people willing to work on the company's schedule, no longer honoring work life issues. You are going to be assigned a schedule and you better like it! The benefits are still mediocre and while you are "coaxed" to take health screenings to save on the premium, you don't dare take a sick day or else you will be written up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why? They are too busy hiding the faults so they can look good.
