    I have been working at UnitedHealth Group

    Pros

    Great teammates, managers and directors. Benefits are great. 401k: employer will match contributions.

    Cons

    Pay is low to average in industry. No opportunities for advancement in most departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice, really. CEO once said in a company meeting that pay will not match what other competitors offer and if employees are dissatisfied, perhaps it is time to look elsewhere for opportunities. A very honest answer.

    I have been working at UnitedHealth Group part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, absolutely. I make my own schedule, period.
    Very pleasant workforce, they say respect each other, and they mean it.
    No medical management of members, just assessments.

    Cons

    It could be boring, if you let it, however each new member visit is unique and can be fun.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    UHG had great pay and offered a lot of benefits. I also enjoyed the amount of vacation time I was given.

    Cons

    UHG had a lot of layers of management with each one wanting to get their hands dirty. Also, the review system was flawed and only promoted cronyism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    UHG should cut the managerial fat. I found that there were too many people trying to do similar things.

    Knowledge of all areas of Medicaid and Medicare. Good pay

    Upper level management does not like to listen to ideas of improvements. Like to have meetings about everything and talk more than implementing

    Pros

    Work from home, OK medical benefits if you are generally healthy, Rewarding results plan they will throw you a couple $1,000 from time to time

    Cons

    Company does not make efforts to retain or develop talent. Highest performers rewarded with 2% merit increases.
    Company espouses values but does not live them, an error was made in my medical claims and because their timeclock ran out they were unwilling to fix the claim issue. Let the buyer beware with this organization. You will also lose (NOT PAID OUT) all your banked PTO once you decide to terminate employment. CEO reins from the time period when UHG was under SEC review for backdating stock options.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop chasing trends and start leading in the marketplace when it comes to consumer satisfaction. When medical benefits are finally decoupled from employment (and that day is coming), you need to set yourselves up for success at that point and stop pandering to short term gains and outsourcing.

    Pros

    Organized, high tech, work from home.

    Cons

    Benefits are atrocious. Prescriptions not even covered until you meet $1700 deductible. Salaries are about 10% lower than competition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer a decent choice of plans at a range of prices. Some of us are willing to pay more for better coverage.
