Former Employee - Manager in Minneapolis, MN
Former Employee - Manager in Minneapolis, MN

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

Pros

Lots of opportunity for growth,

Fair compensation, fair benefits

Great co-workers

Flexibility to work day

Cons

Job requirements made work/life balance was not quite "balanced"

Need to filter invites to conference calls and meeting, so only the appropriate players are invited. They are a waste of time for the rest.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better communication to employees about the changes that affect their direct reports and job responsibilities would have been greatly appreciated

    Great people overall but struggling with an over-managed, constantly changing process.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits and paid time off and flexibility, peaceful work environment, a very helpful team of people in stressful times who are always willing to go above and beyond.

    Cons

    Although the lower level management means well, upper management has a stronghold on the company and every few months the processes keep changing and everyone has to rally around to learn a new way of doing something until it changes again.

    I have been working at UnitedHealth Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Parent company, UnitedHealth Group, is strong. They bring in a lot of business, and OptumRx implements the pharmacy benefits. UHG is on the forefront on healthcare and supports lots of businesses.
    Fun, caring people to work with. There is a commitment to community service, giving, etc.
    The annual surveys to gauge employee satisfaction are taken very seriously and things do actually get follow up upon. It isn't just lip service-- they care about employee satisfaction.
    New CEO is great

    Cons

    Lots of inefficient processes, lack of commitment to improve broken areas. For as big as they are, the systems don't work well. This could change with the new CEO.
    For being a part of UHG business, this segment gets treated the worst from the other businesses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus less on acquiring new members and fix the broken processes and systems.
    There should be better synergy between the segments--OptumRx is clearly the hated stepchild of the businesses.
