    My first job in corporate America

    Data Provider Specialist (Current Employee)
    Trumbull, CT

    ProsThis is the first job I ever had working for a large company. I loved everything about working for United, the people, the job itself, the hours, the pay and benefits, just an awesome place to work!

    ConsWe recently found out from management that up to 50% of our department is being outsourced anytime from now to the next few months. I am heartbroken, I never loved going to work so much!

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease reconsider outsourcing jobs! We need people in the USA working. There are fewer jobs being posted for the company, I never want to leave UHC!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Advice to Senior ManagementDecrease micro-management and allow nurses to move to other areas of interest without having to involve HR.

    Great Place to work, but typical Fortune 500 Red Tap

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsFlexible position, work with great talent, opportunity to make your mark, Telecommute

    ConsRed Tape, System's issues, lack of clear career track

    Advice to Senior ManagementTo retain high quality employees a clear career track is needed within Optum. Good employees can only stay so long for financial rewards

    Good employer...

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsWork to Life Balance is high. Leadership in select depts. will always have your back

    ConsSalary increase is very low once you are inside the company. Very high expectations- work you very hard. Some leadership is quick to throw you under the bus.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAll about the bottom dollar- they need to reward their employees rather than cutting training, bonuses, etc...

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Sales

    Sales Operations Specialist (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsThe company values other opinions. Recently the sales operations has moved to a virtual ops model, in which it has opened opportunities for SOSs

    ConsThe health insurance is horrible. Our customers receive better benefit packages than we do as employees. No telecommute for this position. Recently the SOSs were receiving commission, all of that has seized.

    Excellent experience from the culture, management, and to the ability to telecommute full-time.

    Associate Director (Current Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsThe opportunity to telecommute full-time. Compensation package is solid.

    ConsIt's a large enterprise and consequently, change takes time. There's a lot of change, not always good and not always the fault of UHC, but it's constant and often inexplicable and ambiguous.
