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

Pros

You manage your own assigned accounts so there is a high level of independence and flexibility. Telecommuting is allowed once a week.

Cons

As a branch office, corporate vision is often elusive. Requires a vast array of skills with expertise in excel, mathematics, and problem solving. Very detail-oriented and you must be able to juggle multiple requests at once.

Advice to Management

More overview, training, and interaction.

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

    Pros

    Everyone is a VP. The really 'big' VPs are nowhere to be found - on their decks in warm States making phone calls looking for business.

    Cons

    High level of testosterone. Everybody in leadership is a rainmaker, or wantabee rainmaker. They rely on staff who have 'been there and got the teeshirts.' The leadership all traded in their Accenture, Deloitte, Bain starter jobs after ten years for Optum. Leadership is all about sell, sell, sell. Very poor management skills. The onboarding is overwhelming...the lack of integrated systems is eye popping!! The OpenAir timecard system is right out of the 90's.

    Advice to Management

    Sort out the VP rank and file and make the title mean something, and make sure they have leadership and management skills. Get some state of the art IT leadership before it's too late.

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule and ability to work at home is nice. I was happy with the pay that I started with though they need to work on their bonus and yearly increases.

    Cons

    Very poor management in all aspects of the company that I've interacted with. Little to no initial or ongoining training. Poor communication no ability to provide feedback. Being owned by UHG can be considered a huge con due to the complete ineptitude of the IT department.

    Advice to Management

    If you want honest answers on the annual vital signs survey then it should not be tied to how much an employee will get for their annual increase.
