I have been working at UnitedHealth Group full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Fast pace
Rewards success
Large number of opportunities and areas to work
Strong process and operations focus
Smart people

Cons

Long hours
Inconsistent/Poor Management Support
The company wants to be innovative, but only if the innovation is a success. Therefore, innovation is stifled.
Failure is not tolerated, in fact it is punished
Heavy focus on process rather than product or customer

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The company is attempting to change the culture, which is a great thing. However, many of those teaching/leading the change classes don't live the new culture. It starts at the top and Execs aren't living it.

    Pros

    Telecommuting
    Scheduling (You set your own schedule, but once you do, it is cast in stone...)

    Cons

    You can believe what the reviews are saying about the unfortunate demise of EHR. UHG has totally destroyed this previously wonderful employer....and has dismantled department by department along with loyal, experienced staff.

    Next in line...all of the Nurse Letter Coordinators are losing their jobs in the upcoming months due to "technological enhancements".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good bye.

    Not a friendly atmosphere, treated employees as dispensable cogs in a machine

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

    Pros

    Job security, learning about healthcare and the RFP process, decent benefits. A good place to learn about the ins and outs of health insurance, which is a complicated industry.

    Cons

    Not a collegial atmosphere, wage below market, rare raises. Lots of pressure to meet deadlines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat workers with more respect and realize that they are not disposable. Make sure that the employees know you appreciate their work, and reward them with more flexibility and trust.
