    Former Employee - Accounting Manager in Columbia, MD

    I worked at UnitedHealth Group full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Can't think of any except that I received a paycheck.

    Cons

    Hostile work environment created by 2 Directors in Finance. Their supervisors will not take responsibility to correct the problem.
    Hire overqualified people to do mundane work. Lie to candidates in interviews regarding the work they will perform.
    Management makes excuses when employees quit. They lie to staff as to the reasons employees choose to leave.
    Implementations of new systems are constantly pushing deadlines. Staff is expected to perform their daily tasks and end user testing for months with no end in sight.
    Management threatens staff with longer hours and working weekends when they don't get their way.
    Too many unproductive meetings.
    Management makes a lot of bad decisions at the expense of the staff. Management is out of touch with the employees. Focus too much on surveys instead of actually speaking to the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to address the "rotten apples" creating the hostile work environment before one of the staff gets smart and reports you to HR. Not sure if you are just not smart enough to recognize the issues or you really want to ignore them.

    I worked at UnitedHealth Group full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I have no PROS to list

    Cons

    Chaotic haphazard management
    Knee jerk reactionary team: receive 10 "oops" emails after every new policy initiation
    ROI/Metrics/Productivity--even if you are on vacation--even if members do not return calls BOTTOM LINE YOU are responsible
    Middle Management: Bully employees
    Senior Management: Turn blind eye
    Did not receive unused PTO time despite giving proper notice

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't just hire PR writers to dream up fancy core value statements
    Laser focus on employee concerns
    Implement exit interviews
    If you can't treat your employees with respect that is probably why you can't serve your members. ETHICS and INTEGRITY SHOULD start at the TOP! Remember star ratings start with YOU
    Remember when your bottom line (greed) becomes your top line everyone suffers
