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

    Pros

    Good benefits. Rapidly growing industry due to the Affordable Care Act. Promotions tend to be based on merit from what I've experienced and observed.

    Cons

    The company has gone through a great deal of reorganizations. The company tends to clean house ever year or so managing to a specific head county only to go out and replace/fill these positions a few months later. Being promoted to manager or above tends to be a double edge sword. The more senior the position, the bigger the target on your back when the company fails to meet wall street's expectations, particularly if you are part of a shared services group.

    Pros

    Free Parking, Monday-Friday work schedule, in house cafeteria,

    Cons

    Hard workers get over looked by friendships and favorites. Bonuses are controlled by quality reviews and reviews are done by management with no option to dispute, even if your performance is outstanding they will find the smallest mistake to ensure you do not receive the bonus you earned.

    Advice to Management

    Allow 3rd party quality reviews rate the calls instead of someone that deals with you on a day to day that can sabotage your bonus if they don't personally favor you.

    I worked at UnitedHealth Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The Good: I worked for UHG and Optum for 3 years and 5 months and learned a great deal about working in a large company and was able to hone some much needed skills to continue my career progression. The benefits are good for the most part, not great, but good.

    Cons

    The Bad: Working for a company with over 150,000 employees can be daunting at times. Employees were treated as a commodity for the most part. While they were trying hard to change its culture, it is taking very, very long for changes to take hold, The Ugly: Speaking of taking a long time, this is possibly the worst thing about a company this size. The lack of agility in the company is mind numbing. When you think a change should literally be accomplished in a days, it drags on for months and months with meeting after meeting being called, each with 10-20 people, all wringing their hands over this change.

    Advice to Management

    Make lower level managers more accountable and give them the authority to "get things done". Decisions should not take months with an act of congress before moving forward.

    I have been working at UnitedHealth Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pros for me (after almost 15 years here) are stability, a large work group with a defined mission and good immediate management; good employee stock plan.

    Cons

    Cons are the medical benefits (HSA plan), work/life balance (I work up to 70 hours a week, not consistently, but consistently 50 or more hours)
