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

Pros

Innovate company - cutting edge and trendsetting in healthcare - Believes in cost saving. Large corporation with many facets. Uses international employees

Cons

Focus on numbers not people. Upper management says what you want to hear and middle management puts the foot on your neck and makes you produce at any cost. The deliverable will be achieved by ANY means necessary.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Connect more with the actual workforce. Take an interest in the employee be a more family based corporation. Have a heart when dealing with employees. Life happens while we are working to achieve the bottom line.

    Pros

    Coworkers were great! Good physical working environment. Location close to home. Mid-level management was pretty good overall. A good job for someone fresh out of school or looking for an entry level position.

    Cons

    Upper management is lacking ethics and direction is skewed. They only care about the bottom line and do not mind driving the support workers into complete exhaustion. In their view, the profit is first and family is last. They have no problem blaming the support staff for their own misguided attempts to cheat the clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow some hair and own up to your mistakes! Stop throwing your workers under the bus for your screw-ups!

    Pros

    Working at home is the only perk for this company.

    Cons

    Upper Management are not qualified to be management. Do not give employees a chance if make an error....do not care what happens and guide you. All worried about is the survey that the members leave....but cannot redeem is the member did not understand the scoring. Supervisor have there favorites and anyone else they try to get rid of without giving a second chance. Benefits are horrible....for an insurance company they should not have you pay. You have to be a favorite of management to get anywhere. Make promises to employees and used them but do not promote! Can't believe they are in business still.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get management that has customer service experience and train them to be compassionate! People do have lives and things happen...
