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

Pros

Above average salary, average benefits (surprisingly average for the size of the company) and good opportunity for advancement.

Cons

I worked with several managers and all were fanatical that no one in any of the groups I worked in should contact's consult, or provide any information to the managers peers. One manager had a habit of raising his voice with his subordinates - unacceptable, but HR did not follow through with any of the complaints lodged from at least four individuals.

Advice to Management

Remove supervisory responsibility from those managers that do not have the tact or disposition to deal with employees in a respectable manner.

    Pros

    Company actions reflect their mission and values. Emphasis on volunteer work. Lots of very smart people work at UHG. Salary is good.

    Cons

    Sometimes internal divisions have a tough time working together, causing obstacles. With such a large company, some initiatives take a while to get goind.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on the people, who make up most of your operations.
