Pros

Friendly environment that encourages self growth and self motivation. The goals set by management are very reasonable and any obstacles are easily removed.

Cons

At this time, we're not able to work from home. However, there is a pilot going on so it may happen at some point.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you're doing, it's working wonderfully! The atmosphere at work is very open and uplifting. The management team is fun to work for and leaves you feeling excited to be at work every day.

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

    Pros

    Generous PTO, but you will need it to stay sane
    Great Employee Stock Purchase Program
    Work from home two days a week

    Cons

    Worst health care insurance benefits I've seen, ($1,500 co-insurance per year)
    Hostile work environment unless you are in the clique'
    Queen Bee Syndrome is rampid in middle and upper management
    Work load is overwhelming, dictated by highly unorganized managers
    Work is mind numbing, and boring; coding robot; query slave. Prepare to be dumbed down.
    Unfair treatment by managers between team members.
    Manager lies to you and about you to his upper managers.
    'Growth' is touted, but there is a freeze on hiring and travel. Growth is likely touted to keep you there.
    Upper management works from home or MN and is completely out of touch and dependent on what is reported to them by onsite managers.
    Loads of gossip, jealousy and calumny.
    Unskilled people promoted into management positions simply because they have friends.
    Lots of good qualified people either laid off or fired since aquisition.
    Highly unprofessional.
    UHG/Ingenix/OptumInsight ran AIM Healthcare into the ground
    Company seemingly sinking fast.
    I'm not a disgruntled employee, just an honest evaluation.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck !!!!!

    Pros

    Consistent pay
    Most fellow employees are good folks
    Good choice of health insurance options as well as retirement and stock purchases

    Cons

    Don't ever EVER have a sick day - unless you've planned it and submitted time off
    NEVER talk with your fellow employees; keep your head down, keep silent and work work work
    They do not promote from within
    Rules and regs are subject to change at a moment's notice
    Employees are encouraged to "tattle" on other employees but do become penalized when they bring wrong-doing to management's attention
    Strong "do as I say and not as I do" management style
    Consistently being watched and bullied by leads to "ensure you are working"
    Look down on those who use the restroom more than once in a 2-hour timespan - seriously
    Not a place I'd recommend to work

    Advice to Management

    Need to communicate with employees more effectively
    Understand that people and their children DO get sick
