I have been working at UnitedHealth Group full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

There are some very smart people here. It's the most powerful health insurance company in the U.S. The company has great name recognition. Accountability and proving performance with various layers of scrutiny are part of working here.

Cons

If you are in a leadership position, you will be asked to do..., morally ambigious, things in order to save or make money. The company will goose their income statements by declaring no raise or bonus years, even though the company is making money hand over fist. As a person with direct reports, that's a hard story to tell. The work pace is crazy, you will work 50+ hrs a week here if you are grade 28 and above. Turnover is crazy, especially in the call centers and in leadership: grade 29 and above.

Advice to Management

Invest in your people. Invest in your customers. Live the values you put in the signatures of your emails a little more. Making/saving money shouldn't be the motive behind all decisions when people's lives are so clearly at stake.

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

    Pros

    Connextions is always hiring, anybody.

    Cons

    Compensation, management, environment, business practices, policies set in place which apply to some but not all, and everything besides the fact that this company is always hiring, always to replace employees who have quit on the spot or those who have been terminated; Connextions is never hiring to fill newly created positions.

    Advice to Management

    Unfortunately, most members of management are unable to actually make any substantial changes within this company and the CEO, Mr. LeFort, resigned in early 2013. Whomever is actually in charge should, if they even care, take a close look at why so many employees dread coming to work each day, there is such a high employee turnover rate, and the educated and professional employees are few and far between.
