    I worked at UnitedHealth Group full-time (More than a year)

    I have been working at UnitedHealth Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits for full time employees (401 K, good PTO - sick days package), ability to work from home (telecommute), a lot of learning in new technologies and healthcare system. Fast paced environment (can consider good if you are the type that enjoys working in fast paced environments.)

    Cons

    Very stressful workload, working extra hours all the time to finish projects assigned. Management decisions are on constant change. Very difficult to move up the corporate ladder, no promotions and almost non existent salary increase. High turnover .. expectations are way too high.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what employees are complaining about. Most people working in United are professionals that have legitimate complaints.

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

    Pros

    The best thing about the job was the opportunity to work with a group of smart and interesting people. The proposal team never took a cookie-cutter approach to work, but always thought about creative strategies. We felt like part of the sales team rather than simply an adjunct proposal shop.

    Cons

    UHG is a large company that thrives on acquisition. In an effort to streamline processes, corporate demonstrated a tendency to impose decisions without listening carefully to the opinions of experienced experts in my subsidiary.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise management to seek the opinions of employees when developing process improvement. The emphasis should be on expectations about the quality of the work product; micromanagement of process can get in the way.

    Not many. Kind people. Some uppers are nice and helpful but training is awful
