Not bad, but not good

Senior Project Manager (Former Employee)
Sunrise, FL (US)

I worked at UnitedHealth Group full-time for more than 10 years

ProsWork life balance, good opportunity to network / build meaningful relationships, investments made in technology

ConsSalary, benefits are at the lower end of what the market pays.

Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in you your staff who stick with you through the years. Paying someone coming in from the outside more than a top contributor who already works for you is only asking for undesirable attrition.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Decent workplace

Pharmacy Tech (Current Employee)
Cypress, CA (US)

I have been working at UnitedHealth Group full-time for more than 5 years

ProsDesk job, don't really make contact with patients but depends on your job function. Work is not too overwhelming if you're ably to keep up with an always changing environment. Good benefits and lots of overtime. If you like to work to make extra money it's a plus.

ConsMicro managing happens a lot. Must follow a break and lunch schedule down to the minute. Definitely all about numbers, if you can't keep up you're gone. Mandated overtime can take over your life. Raises are between 0-5%.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great Experience

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Wauwatosa, WI (US)

I have been working at UnitedHealth Group full-time for more than a year

ProsUHC has many employee perks and bonuses. I enjoy being recognized for the hard work that I do on a daily basis.

ConsI am not satisfied with the monopolization that go on in many large corporations. For instance, if they need to save money or cut costs, upper management find ways to not give employees raises.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt's good to bring innew employees and make them feel at home but don't forget about or leave out the employees that have bene here longer.

Long term great company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at UnitedHealth Group full-time for more than 10 years

ProsThis is a huge company, with lots of opportunity for career growth and lots of resources. Benefits are good, and the company is in the midst of a wholesale cultural revolution which is really getting a lot of attention and meaningful application. There is a real desire to build on the culture and the people. In good years, compensation is excellent, and for top performers there are numerous recognition opportunities.

ConsHealthcare is evolving, with a lot of pressure on the benefits side of the business which can lead to cost pressure. Every year there are cost reduction measures, including layoffs which can be a distraction. This is an enormous enterprise, so it can be hard to find your way among all the different groups and teams at first.
