Current Employee - Quality Auditor - Medical Claims in Springfield, MO (US)

I have been working at UnitedHealth Group full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Work at home is a big pro, no clothing expense, no gas and no eating out. Retirement match is pretty good, benefits are fairly inexpensive

Cons

Raises are minimal and sometimes non-existent in a bad economy. Deductible is really high for employees.

    Former Employee - Operations Manager in Eau Claire, WI (US)

    I worked at UnitedHealth Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Challenging work, exciting to positively impact health care.
    Access to large sets of data for analysis which provides a huge opportunity to decrease errors and increase cost savings to insurers, providers and patients.

    Cons

    Poor values - they do not practice what they preach.
    Monthly pressure to cut staff and increase production without providing necessary support or systems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make a decision and then give it more than two weeks before changing your mind ...doing a sixth leadership reorg in a year leaves little confidence in future decisions your making.

    Former Employee - Sales and Marketing Representative in Pittsburgh, PA (US)

    I worked at UnitedHealth Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Salary, benefits, ability to telecommute

    Cons

    below average benefits, weak leadership, lack of accountability, unclear commission structure

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Multiple different groups would sell the identical product for which I was hired. I would suggest consolidating groups that are doing the same job function so as to eliminate confusion among peers, and strengthen sales procedure. I would also suggest hiring people based upon their superior qualifications, not their diversity.
