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

Pros

time off is great, work-life balance I would say is pretty good most of the time (except during crunch times)

Cons

I feel that the departments were cliquish and singled out employees that didn't conform to whatever standards they had, obsessed with numbers and statistics (which can be good and bad), managers will sometimes show favoritism, a lot of gossiping and interdepartmental dating. Also I believe that people "horded" information in order to get and stay ahead.

Advice to Management

Make department information easily available (i.e. having the training department put up all training docs on a SharePoint or website so that all can obtain) including any new announcements, process', etc and making sure that employees that know a certain thing are sharing the information among the rest of the staff.

    It takes ALOT to get fired

    Cons

    benefits are expensive and offer little coverage with maximum out of pocket
    paid time off is difficult to get approved
    managers micro-manage, constantly look over your shoulder
    compensation (annual raises/bonuses) are not consistent
    systems are out-dated
    managers are so worried about the big picture, they fail to realize its the day-to-day stuff that gets them there
    no room for advancement
    They don't care about the employees, only they have a warm body in the chair
    Will hire anyone, regardless of education, skills, abilities or professionalism
    impossible to work with management/recruiting on career advancement, its who you know not what you know
    if you don't "go along to get along", you will be pushed out

    Advice to Management

    Promote people who have the skills and abilities you are looking for, not the employees who have relatives or connections to make upper management happy. Listen to the suggestions on the member surveys. If you make the changes suggested, rather than blame the employee who took the call, you might actually get somewhere.
