I worked at UnitedHealth Group full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Team members are excellent and helpful

Cons

You hardly get bonus. Feudal system

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Motivate and appreciate the workers. A pat in the back is what most of them expect, which is rarely given

    I have been working at UnitedHealth Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I am allowed to telecommute, which is a wonderful perk, and the hours are definitely flexible. Stock plan is the standard 15% lower than the lower of the buy/sell, so you can't lose on it, and the benefits are extremely substantive.

    Cons

    United is the classic corporate atmosphere for a very large company: you are just a cog in the machine and if you don't squeak very loudly, you will never be given special consideration. The company basically encourages you to either come in at a very high salary for what you do, or else leave and come back after getting a salary boost elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When a team has been showing millions in savings verified by black-belts and reporting, make sure that the rewards are in keeping with the success. A 2% raise for saving the company millions of dollars multiple years running is a slap in the face.

    Pros

    The company is one of the biggest insurance firms in US. It is avery solid and stable place to work in.
    Life work balance
    Opportunity to learn healthcare industry
    Flexible schedule

    Cons

    Too many levels of management. The company is so big, that sometimes the lack of proper communication between different departments causes inefficiencies. The same work may be duplicated. There is competition between departments.
