    I have been working at UnitedHealth Group full-time


    Culture seems to be a high priority for the company (Stems from Wickman & Hemsley, which is good) and the benefits are decent (Including the ESOP)


    Nothing hug. Internal politics, which is usual for a company this size. Some areas there are career advancement challenges, which again is usual for a company this size. Overall it's a good place to work and build a career

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Minneapolis, MN
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at UnitedHealth Group (Minneapolis, MN).


    Very long process starting with video interview, HR phone screen, 1:1 phone interview with hiring manager, then 2 separate in person panel interviews. Most of the interviewers were very inexperienced, unprofessional, and even lied about why they liked working in the department (one manager admitted after I was hired she lied during interview and was actually "counting the days" until her 1 year in the department was up so she could transfer out of the department). The position turned out to be not at all as represented during the many interviews and didn't even follow standard company processes and policies. Once hired they said to disregard the job description, no longer relevant and perfectly "legal". Needless to say, I felt hood-winked by them all and accepted the job offer based on dishonest interview process.
