    I have been working at UnitedHealth Group full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I think this is a good company but they are very top heavy we don't need managers that only manage one or two people. I think that money could be allotted for something else. Give it back to the network

    Cons

    The networks are large and hard to manage

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up good work

    Pros

    There are some very good opportunities at UHG - The company is huge and spans more industries that just Healthcare. You can be very happy at UHG if you find the right team.

    Cons

    Some teams frequently work from home on a regular basis, which is good for work/life balance, but can be isolating.

    I worked at UnitedHealth Group full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good stock and 401k.
    Good vacation time and accrual for longevity of employ.
    Allows for promotion into other insurance companies that offer career promise.

    Cons

    Extremely unhealthy internal culture upheld by lower/middle management.
    Promotions are strictly political, not merit driven, at lower/middle levels.
    Many departments highly understaffed at service / entry levels.
    Raises are not competitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Turn-over rates in departments often suggest poor management. Clean house.
    Multiple choice PC training tool does not equate effective manager/supervisor training.
    Appropriate staffing and good managers will likely improve culture and reduce turn-over.
