    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Optum has good benefits once you get to a certain grade level --fabulous benefits for the top grades. At one time this was a great place to work. But they forced out Dawn Owens and after that it became all about greed.

    Cons

    Got rid of or demoted the best people in several rounds of lay offs and restructure.
    Very political--have to be from the St Louis office to be promoted.
    Both clinicians (Care Advocates, clinical program managers) and members have lost out in Jelinick's slash and burn.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of CEO. Start over with reorg

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

    Pros

    Good Benefits, clean safe environment

    Cons

    Supervisors show favoritism, no time off is ever available. You have pto benefits but there is never any availabilty to take an hour off much less a day! Stressful environment, not enough employees to handle the call volume.

    Advice to Management

    Make more unannounced site visits. You would be surprised what your managers are doing in your absence, or should I say the lack there of.
