I worked at UnitedHealth Group full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

As many people have said, you will find some of the smartest, hardest working people at United. The pace is intense, frantic, and urgent at all times. The variety of jobs available, due to the size of United, is really great. I think there is great opportunity for people from supervisors through directors. Also, the company is doing well from a market perspective. I was also very satisfied with financial rewards for high performers. I was United's biggest champion for more than 10 years.

Cons

Above the director level, it is an old boys club. More concerning, over the past few years, I saw a culture of people being afraid to speak the truth to authority figures. At higher levels, people are now operating out of fear and self protection. United also has a strategy of pitting departments and companies against each other in competitions to try to get the best performance. I guess this isn't a con if you like that sort of thing. While it might work in the end result, it is really frustrating and inefficient if you're trying to get your job done.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If, and only if, you really want to know why things are inefficient or why certain things fail, ask the people doing the work and be open to the truth.

    I have been working at UnitedHealth Group

    Pros

    Reliable hours, clear understanding of whats expected of you

    Cons

    Job growth and stability of position questionable as more company cutbacks liquidate departments and positions. No communication from corporate to explain these cut backs. Health benefits are lacking ( for an insurance company), verty linear options for advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start reading the reviews on here, become clearer with your employee's about job cuts and other spending cuts.

    Pros

    There aren't any. This company this on the worst list.

    Cons

    Can't get time off calls are coming in so fast you can't take a sip of water, Mangers watch your every move Micro Managing emails sent everyday about your personal time you only get 7minutes per day. The bathroom is a 1/2 mile walk.
