Pros

Some spaces within United Health Group enable a great deal of growth due to the challenges of such a large organization and how it has come together through acquisition. For the right person, there are endless opportunities to seek out new challenges.

Cons

The breadth of organizations make it challenging to step back and see the full picture. Too often it seems that the answer that looks good is enough and it can be a real struggle to get people past the first impression to the real problems which are much harder to solve for without tough choices.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Greater attention needs to be paid across the board to bloated areas of the organization to avoid cost cutting in areas which are as lean as they can be.

    I worked at UnitedHealth Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Co-workers are professional and make work seem fun. The theory behind what UHG is doing sounds good (helping people live healthier lives). It is nice to meet people that live around you and provide health education to members in the community. Overall, low level medical decision making skills and low level medical legal liability. Good benefits but pay is lacking.

    Cons

    Many of us housecalls NP practitioners were lured in with promised that were not kept (no raises, no bonuses and the pay structure is below national average). Then the schedules were unreasonable causing us to work longer and longer days, sometimes well over what we were scheduled to work and driving many miles daily. PTO is a use it or lose it "grant" (not benefit) so if/when one leaves the company, they don't pay out on the last check. Some of the check list for physical exam and testing during the housecalls visit is not medical evidence based (monofiiament screen on everyone).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Housecalls practitioners are the face of United Health Care in the field. We are the ones who represent your company. If we aren't happy with the company, no one will be happy with the company. You need to try to retain your NPs so you can retain your members for insurance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should create an atmosphere that motivates employees to take pride in their work.
    Management needs to communicate better with one another and with employees.
    Management needs to be open to innovative ideas and attentive to their employees.
