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

    Pros

    UnitedHealth offers good benefits and opportunities to advance.

    Cons

    UnitedHealth is an enormous bureaucracy and it is easy to be just a cog in their machine.

    Advice to Management

    A mentoring program or career development program would really help you retain people who gain new skills and want to advance.

    Also, developing a program to identify and retain great employees would really help you

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

    Pros

    Parent company, UnitedHealth Group, is strong. They bring in a lot of business, and OptumRx implements the pharmacy benefits. UHG is on the forefront on healthcare and supports lots of businesses.
    Fun, caring people to work with. There is a commitment to community service, giving, etc.
    The annual surveys to gauge employee satisfaction are taken very seriously and things do actually get follow up upon. It isn't just lip service-- they care about employee satisfaction.
    New CEO is great

    Cons

    Lots of inefficient processes, lack of commitment to improve broken areas. For as big as they are, the systems don't work well. This could change with the new CEO.
    For being a part of UHG business, this segment gets treated the worst from the other businesses.

    Advice to Management

    Focus less on acquiring new members and fix the broken processes and systems.
    There should be better synergy between the segments--OptumRx is clearly the hated stepchild of the businesses.
