    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at UnitedHealth Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    there is a lot of options for growth if you can take the constant strain of negativity.

    Cons

    It went from a great employer to only caring how much stock will be worth every quarter...
    I worked in a dept. where we fixed problems caused by overseas workers and then had 40% of the jobs cut and filled by "global" employees. Nice way to end 16 years

    Advice to Management

    not much to say since if they don't agree with corp. then they are fired like everyone else.

    Pros

    Great staff, fantastic culture, good pay, opportunity for growth, a rewarding position with good benefits and solid company

    Cons

    I cannot really think of any immediate cons, other than location of a facility to work at, working telecommute is the option of choice.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits. Decent hourly pay. Work from home opportunity.

    Cons

    Very poor communication from management. Force to work more than one position/cross business segmentation with no pay increase, and no quarterly bonuses because you can’t meet stats working two different segments.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Great response from hr regarding policies and rules. Great employee discounts.

    Cons

    HORRIBLE communication from managers. Embarrassing pay scale. Up to $5 difference between uhc and other local places for exact same job. Some departments have 2-3 superiors for as little as 10 people. Very disorganized.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how to communicate. Train management better.

    It is a steady job to have.

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

    Pros

    Great on the ground employees and true culture that pushes innovation.

    Cons

    Complete mismanagment outside of the Minnesota corporate location.

    Boston location management is completely non-existent and ethically compromised. There’s a high level executive who has a daughter who works for her directly which I’ve never seen in a company before.

    Minnesota management seems to be clueless as to why Boston suffers but barely shows up. Not communicative to employees and contrsctors in Boston and transparent about processes.

    Advice to Management

    Install senior day to day leadership in Boston that is not ethically compromised and understands the local market and conditions. Current leadership in that office is either ethically compromised OR is from Hartford and has no clue how Boston ticks.
