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

    Pros

    If you are in the Sales department you can make good money with bonuses and commission. Company culture is pretty flexible and will allow you to work from home occasionally within certain positions.

    Cons

    Republican company that doesn't allow for much growth. Did not enjoy the life in my office, lots of turnover of good employees who leave for more money.

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees to grow and move in the company. Pay employees more for advanced degrees.

    I have been working at UnitedHealth Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Having a job during tough economic times

    Cons

    Mass confusion, extreme pressure in a call center, supervisors have their positions without knowledge of how to ethically treat people on the floor, discrimination! It is well known because the Supervisors will tell you " in order to move up at uhc you need to network yourself and be liked". I was appauled that that sentence was even spoken. They play favorites with which employees do the most for them the " sups"

    Advice to Management

    Be more aware of your management you have in place. If you wou
    ld speak to employees instead, of putting "restrictions" on us (fear of job loss) you would have happier employees. Take the time to ask us about our work environment in private not a ROUND TABLE meeting!
