I have been working at UnitedHealth Group full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

I am allowed to telecommute, which is a wonderful perk, and the hours are definitely flexible. Stock plan is the standard 15% lower than the lower of the buy/sell, so you can't lose on it, and the benefits are extremely substantive.

Cons

United is the classic corporate atmosphere for a very large company: you are just a cog in the machine and if you don't squeak very loudly, you will never be given special consideration. The company basically encourages you to either come in at a very high salary for what you do, or else leave and come back after getting a salary boost elsewhere.

Advice to Management

When a team has been showing millions in savings verified by black-belts and reporting, make sure that the rewards are in keeping with the success. A 2% raise for saving the company millions of dollars multiple years running is a slap in the face.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    -salary is decent for a customer service rep in south FL. Most call centers pay $10 or less an hour.
    -Opportunity to work from home.
    -friendly atmosphere
    -great opportunity for promotion internally

    Cons

    -Hiring process is too harsh!
    -your whole career here depends on your supervisor, if youre not best friends, forget about promotion.
    -forever changing! (but this is health insurance so that should be expected.)

    Advice to Management

    Personal opinion of someone should not matter. This is a work place and should be handled professionally. I love my supervisor but i've seen [omitted] handle other people inappropriately.

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

    Pros

    Actively sought to provide excelling employees opportunity for growth. I felt supported when learning new tasks and taking on new responsibilities. The colleagues I worked with were professional and friendly and managment was engaging and open to give and take of ideas.

    Cons

    There was little downside. The one criticism I can make from my experience is that the review period was a set time of year for all and new employees who were hired later in the year may have to wait nearly 2 years for their first salary review.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.
