    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at UnitedHealth Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great location to commute to and from work; ample parking
    VPN accessible
    Solid opportunities for entry level employee with minimal experience
    Flexible work arrangement possible (based on who you report to)
    Telecommunicating required
    Updated laptop configuration
    Free coffee

    Cons

    Medical benefits are the worst in the region; basically catastrophic care. Prepare to pay out of pocket
    Bonuses and salary increases are few and far between
    Highly political environment; merit is undervalued - politics overvalued
    Closed communication shop; everything is "need to know basis"
    Continuous reorganization, realignment, and rebranding; high attrition rate of senior management and regular staff
    Rocky Hill employees not respected; Was told I must move to Minnesota for promotion or bonuses
    Leadership positions often post as MN-only; shrinking presence in Connecticut
    Middle Management not subject to 360 feedback, employees not asked for manager feedback
    Work spaces are small and disgraceful; Directors and AVPs forced to sit in small cubicles
    Technology positions continue to shift to offshore captive in India where there is ZERO accountability for quality issues, and missing deadlines
    Employee surveys reflect a very dissatisfied work population (particularly in Rocky Hill)
    Low budget for training or certification; inconsistent
    Subjective reviews; "Meets" is the standard regardless of time or effort
    Long hours, project celebrations rare; PMs are overloaded beyond reason

    Advice to Management

    Walk the talk. Take the time to determine if your middle managers are contributing value to the organization or - just managing up. Make Rocky Hill site a valued part of the organization or just shut it down - you'll save time by not "training for attrition". Require employees to provide feedback on managers (and stop the witch hunts on who gave what input!!)

    I worked at UnitedHealth Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I met some really nice coworkers.

    Cons

    Leads and supervisors are horrible. The two week training consisted of sitting in a classroom in the morning and then being a "shadow" in the afternoon. The lead did not teach us anything and she would walk around with her shoes off, very unprofessional. She also from day one set the tone by not engaging us and for the two weeks our class was extremely quiet and boring. Once we were put on the floor, we did not get the support that was promised to us and had to rely on one another. I was never told about work email, call out number, emergency plan, adherences or requesting time off and or switching schedules. The turnover is very high here and I now know why.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is key. Communicate all policy and procedures and information directly to staff instead of by chat room and paper after paper.
