I have been working at UnitedHealth Group full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

There are some very smart people here. It's the most powerful health insurance company in the U.S. The company has great name recognition. Accountability and proving performance with various layers of scrutiny are part of working here.

Cons

If you are in a leadership position, you will be asked to do..., morally ambigious, things in order to save or make money. The company will goose their income statements by declaring no raise or bonus years, even though the company is making money hand over fist. As a person with direct reports, that's a hard story to tell. The work pace is crazy, you will work 50+ hrs a week here if you are grade 28 and above. Turnover is crazy, especially in the call centers and in leadership: grade 29 and above.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest in your people. Invest in your customers. Live the values you put in the signatures of your emails a little more. Making/saving money shouldn't be the motive behind all decisions when people's lives are so clearly at stake.

    I worked at UnitedHealth Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Intelligent, knowledgeable, professional and supportive colleagues

    Cons

    The management for our area offered no support and guidance for our department.
    Work-life balance - everyone was overworked.
    Body shop - only cared about assigning people to projects, didn't concern themselves as to whether the consultant had background/experience/interest in the role.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take classes in ethics and empathy. Learn to be customer-focused.

    Doesn't Recommend
