I have been working at UnitedHealth Group full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

If you are a go getter and a hard worker you will sustain. Work life balance is great. The ability to telecommute is great and really can save time and gas and increase productivity if given the opportunity.

Cons

The employee driven promotion culture is a joke since it is about who you know. You are a grain of sand in the sand box. The company is large and has a diffcullt time with propering training when it comes to the managment teams.

Advice to Management

Please put the right talent in the right positions and truly understand that you are managing tasks, not people. Try to make more of an effort to streamline and even out the playing field when it comes to promoting within the company, otherwise great talent walks out the door because they are underpaid and under appreciated.

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

    Pros

    Decent Pay, Skilled Staff support, option to work from home if you can manage your work.

    Cons

    Benefits are not affordable for employees, option to work from home is not a good idea if you cannot manage your work load, a huge disconnect in communication between management and staff, national departments and local plan departments miss important memos, deadlines, etc. Senior management creates divides between national and local plan employees, where local plan employees are invited to certain company functions and national employees are not invited vice versa. Favortism is rampant and office rules does not apply to all creating a tense and stressfull work place.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management to remove the divide between national and local plan employees creates a discriminatory work place for staff, make health benefits more affordable.

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

    Pros

    Salary, benefits, ability to telecommute

    Cons

    below average benefits, weak leadership, lack of accountability, unclear commission structure

    Advice to Management

    Multiple different groups would sell the identical product for which I was hired. I would suggest consolidating groups that are doing the same job function so as to eliminate confusion among peers, and strengthen sales procedure. I would also suggest hiring people based upon their superior qualifications, not their diversity.
