    Pros

    The corporate and Optum campuses in Minnesota are nice buildings to work out of. They are very clean and have a lot of amenities. They offer work at home opportunities - both part time and full time. My current team is fantastic at understanding when situations happen where you might need to work from home on a non-WFH day. We're only part time WFH (2 days per week) but they give us extra days for bad weather or if something comes up (car trouble, etc). It's a great place to start a career in health insurance.

    Cons

    Health insurance benefits are awful. Which is sad, because you're working for an insurance company. Lots of younger employees, so some teams have this "high school" clique-y vibe. You're either in with the popular crowd or you're not. I see way too much goofing off happening. There are lots of career opportunities, however, it's very difficult to move up in the ladder. I've been trying for a year and a half now and UHG hardly considers me for anything, even though I have lots of experience and I am not applying for jobs that are way out of my reach. You need to work a whole year in your current position before you can apply out. So if you're not happy at your job, you have to stick it out for a year if you want to stay within UHG.

    Advice to Management

    Direct supervisors/management need to know their teams better and the systems they handle. I also think the pay could be better, because other insurance companies do seem to pay better for the same types of work.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Good amount of time off - if you take it! Flexible work schedules which leads to a better work/life balance.

    Cons

    Can be a very competitive company internally. Makes it hard to trust people. Recruitment process is pretty cold when working with external people.

    Advice to Management

    Be a little nicer and have more actual team/relationship building.

    For an insurance company, you would think we had better health coverage. Sadly it is lacking.

    Pros

    I have the flexibility to work remote so I can still be home for my kids and the pay is pretty decent.

    Cons

    The biggest issue i have is health insurance. The premiums are very high and the coverage has much to be desired.
