Lots of changes, but good people

Project Manager (Current Employee)
Irvine, CA

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

ProsParent 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

ConsLots 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 Senior ManagementFocus 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
