I worked at UnitedHealth Group

Pros

Overall it was a good place to work and offered the opportunity for advancement along with a friendly work environment.

Cons

There were some politics at the company and often times red tape bogged things down to the point where it was hard to get something done.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Expand more beyond the traditional lines of business. Focus on the growth areas of the market and lead those to be sucessful.

    I have been working at UnitedHealth Group

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities because of the size of the company, particularly if you are OK with moving (especially to Minnesota)

    Cons

    Size makes for challenges in communication, matrix structure and multiple acquisitions adds to complexity
    Lack of a unifying vision -- opportunity to truly be "a health care company that happens to do health care"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Either let aquired companies do what they do best, or truly assimilate them -- replace legacy systems with modern solutions

    Poor financial compensation and very, very poor health benefits

    I have been working at UnitedHealth Group

    Pros

    Great opportunities for work/life balance. The company is very large so there are many opportunites for internal job transfers or promotions. The company is also very invested in telecommuting.

    Cons

    Poor pay. Poor bonuses. Poor benefits package. Health benefits are a joke. They are forcing everyone into HSAs so that the company has very little responsibility for providing any health care coverage at all. Every year an employee survey is conducted which is a joke because every year employees convey dissatisfaction with the compensation package and nothing is ever done about it. As a matter of fact, upper management completely disregards that portion of the satisfaction survey results

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Begin to pay at a level that is competitive across this industry. Provide better health benefits - this is a health insurance company for goodness sake!
