    Former Employee - QI Specialist in San Diego, CA

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

    Pros

    United's values of integrity and compassion match my own values. I found the company to be dynamic, well-organized and on the cutting edge in managed healthcare. The balance between work and personal life is respected. Pride is taken in community volunteering. Human Resources are easy and pleasant to work with and the outplacement services of Lee Hecht Harrison are stellar.

    Cons

    Contracts get outbid, projects have a limited life-span and layoffs are painful. I've worked for United for 12 years and have been laid off twice. Am currently unemployed and trying hard to get rehired at United.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce the deductible and copayment on healthcare insurance for employees.
