Pros

The approach taken towards customers makes you feel good about what you do everyday.We work with not just employers but we have many product that include Medicaid members. Helping out a family in need makes my job very rewarding.

Cons

Health Insurance benefits for employees are not so great. Fpr a large insurance company you would think we get great healthcare but in fact it's quite the opposite. The 401K is decent but not great. It's pre-selected and it's automatically deducted. If you don't know how to access certain sites you will remain contributing to their stock which is pretty low at this time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

change our health plan. Communicate better with staff. Need for more organization within marketing teams/

    Pros

    Size of the organization gives you access to the top employers in the health care insurance market. There are many innovative individuals working within the organization and there are many opportunities to learn. Creative health care solutions are prized and the organization is working even harder to be in touch with their consumers.

    Cons

    disorganized, lots of power struggles, senior leadership has lost touch with employees, too hierarchical. The organization has many sister companies and they do not work well together. There are many instances where it would be easier to work with an outside vendor than work with an internal constituency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    provide more opportunites for growth to employees, more recognition. Need to address the lack of team work between sister organizations.

    Pros

    Good Salary. Quite a few good people work there. The locations around the metro make it easy to commute. They are very visible company and are involved in a lot of philanthropy projects. They are a very high profile company and many people recognize the company when you mention where you work. They are very cutting edge on government programs and are eager to get involved to expand their business in as many ways as possible. Like all companies, there are quite a few redundant positions and the company is very vertically siloed. They encourage you to bike or walk to work.

    Cons

    Very bad onboarding process. Widely distributed teams across the US. Too many people are leveraging for promotions at the expense of everyone else on the team. The team morale is very low and a lot of people are just hanging on to the hopes of a promotion or a project change. Projects get canceled or "renegotiated" rather often, leaving employees wondering what each new week will bring. If you have career apsirations of sticking with a company for a long period of time, UnitedHealth Group is probably not for you. Their career placement recruiters tend to favor outside applicants over internal applicants.
