    Pros

    Great company, Very nice corporate location. All of the employees are top notch people. The compensation if well above average.

    Cons

    The Senior management is very cold. Movement within the company is almost impossible unless you know someone. The call centers are very structure and almost robotic. Opportunites will only come if you " Sell your soul". People have great background and great skills but you will easily be passed if someone has 0.01 metric higher than your metrics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the employee have a say on your bonus. Maybe that will help the management care more. Know who your team members are when choosing different projects. Base the criteria of help from previous experience instead of small metrics where very qualified people are passed up.

    Pros

    Compensation work from home direct deposit

    Cons

    Short lunches for 12 hour shifts mandatory over time they don't tell you about at time of hire Training is very poor and has a low retention rate very little help one y complete training possibility of getting a supervisor that's not even in your city

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you'd like employees to work there hearts out make it more available for help don't close the help line because high call volume this eliminates mistakes made by employees

    Pros

    In some areas you can telecommute. Careful though, don't move away from a 'hub' they'll get you next downsizing.
    Easy to feel smart. These people are not the sharpest knives in the drawer.
    Employee stock purchase plan is great.

    Cons

    Strategy is not a forte. Everything is a fire drill.
    All benefits except vacation time are sub par.
    Mandatory 'pass rate' of 20% on raises and bonuses.
    Lots of strong egos with BS nods to 'positive culture'. This is Minnesota passive-aggressive at it's finest.

    I have been working at UnitedHealth Group

    Pros

    Lots of innovation opportunities and the company makes a genuine effort to listen to employees and affect change. Company also values go-getters and people who bring out of the box thinking to their job

    Cons

    The salaries honestly suck and there is a wide disparity in how people with same abilities are rewarded. Hence my title of review

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward people appropriately and don't wait until people threaten to quit

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

    Pros

    Stable company with many quality employees. Love my colleagues however discouraged with bureaucracy of large company.

    Cons

    Company benefits misleading. High out of pocket insurance never really kicks in for the average family. Tuition reimbursement misleading only valid if courses apply to current position. Doesn't help you progress your career. I'm having to pay for my own advanced degree to get to the next level. Had an excellent review and denied merit increase because my annual compensation considered too high - very disappointing. Merit increase budgets stay at the top of the org and don't filter down to employees doing the work. Highly political company and difficult to navigate career path progression.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Vital signs is a false measure middle management doesn't encourage employees to be honest- tells employees poor ratings will diminish merit budget for the department. HR recruiters are not helping internal employees and leveraging existing skill set and talent within the company.
