    Pros

    UHG is a company committed to providing services and creative solutions in both the healthcare & services sector. They leaders promote innovative ideas in many areas -- reimbursement methologies, benefit services & technology just to name a few. Adopting a "culture" within the company from a top-down approach speaks to their desire to be a leading company were people have a want to be be employed.

    Cons

    With all of the acquisitions over the past years, our customers really don't know who we are... The compnay need to strategically consolidate both business & technology functions to increase our 'brand' awareness. The daily activities to accomplish projects are swamped with "process" -- it needs to be streamlines/reduced for more effective and efficient productivity. More controls are necessary to limit the amount of off-shore resourcing so that the the knowlege stays in-house & on-shore.

    Advice to Management

    Share the profits with the employees who work very hard to delivery quality products & services that enable the company to thrive. A dividend is nice for stock holders, but rewarding employees (merit increase & bonuses) will go a long way in encouraging employees to work even harder and smarter. This will lessen the attrition of highly skilled workers.

    Former Employee - Senior Customer Service Representative in Waterloo, IA

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

    Pros

    The pay was decent and the supervisors were very supportive. They were encouraging when there were customer calls that were frustrating and would go to bat for you if you had a difficult issue to deal with.

    Cons

    There was not a lot of opportunity for advancement at the call center I worked in. They hired large groups of people at once and did group training so once you did have the experience and opportunity to apply for a higher position, there was a lot of competition for it. There were not openings for expert positions very often as people stayed in those positions long-term once they got them.
