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

Pros

Great PTO amounts and flexibility. Some very smart and talented people in the company. Overall benefits are pretty good.

Cons

Pay raises and movement with in a salary band can be difficult. Budgets are always being cut and often limit your effectiveness. Some positions not backfilled even when they were needed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote from within and do whatever you can to keep the best talent.

    I have been working at UnitedHealth Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Collaboration - willingness to partner across organizations
    Strong market presence - client relationships are strong and repeat business makes working with clients teams easy - the trust is already there
    Leaders are accessible and listen - gaining consensus to make changes or develop new capabilities in easier than at many other companies

    Cons

    Navigating a large organization where some of the ownership to capabilities/focus get blurred
    Organizational change - transitional period as the company becomes one Optum - it is not a Con as much as individuals working at Optum need to be self-starters - aggressive with reaching out and identifying the right people to work with.
    While gaining promotional opportunities is easy to do if you are a seasoned and dedicated - upping the salary commensurate with the increased responsibilities and title is not easy to do

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

    Pros

    good performance was rewarded; senior leadership was results-driven but I saw first hand their genuine insistence on doing the right thing. lots of good, smart, talented people at various levels of the company.

    Cons

    in a company this size it is unavoidable that there are also a few folks who seem to somehow advance further than their abilities or results. Also when I was there, there were still some struggles to integrate all of the acquisitions.
