Negotiate your pay BEFORE you start

Financial Analyst (Current Employee)
Horsham, PA

I have been working at UnitedHealth Group full-time for more than a year

ProsOverall, I like the organization very much. I'm in M&R and my department is one of the more flexible ones in the company, even in the building.

Great work from home policy (my dept allows two days per week)
Generous PTO
Supportive team. I haven't met a single disagreeable person in my department.
Casual attire in the Horsham office.

ConsDon't expect significant raises or salary increases. Despite all the positive propaganda about the success of the company throughout the year, come bonus time the company suddenly "didn't do so well this year." Best to negotiate a better salary at the door bc you won't move up much once you're here.

The health benefits! It's a common complaint here. How ironic that I now have the worst benefits I've ever had in my career.

The company is all about employee engagement, but a lot of times it is forced engagement. Sometimes, employees are happier when they are left alone. The company needs to distinguish employees who want to be engaged from employees who prefer just to keep their heads down.

I lucked out with my department, but management and policies vary significantly from team to team and department to department. There is not a lot of consistency here.

Advice to Senior ManagementEmployees want straight talk throughout the year. If one side of the company isn't doing well, let us know. Don't have us thinking we're going to be rewarded for our success at the end of the year and then throw us a curveball.

The bonus distribution unfairly punishes one segment of the business. In 2012, Insurance Solutions did really well, but because Optum didn't do well, no one got rewarded. I can't help the success of Optum, so I shouldn't be punished for their performance.

Look at the varying policies across the departments. Encourage departments to institute successful policies from other areas. This will lead to more consistency across the board.

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