Generally a good company, but not in touch with people who don't work in Chicago

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsPay is reasonably good, and benefits are ok, unless you live in an area where United Healthcare isn't a big insurer. Generally a well respected company, which is nice. "Meritocracy' is good in theory...

ConsThe execution of meritocracy is so dependent on your manager that it isn't really a meritocracy. It all comes down to how "connected" you are with others (above you, that is). There is a constant push to "do more," but some times, you just can't do as much as management wants you to. They are slow to fill vacancies to save some money while the current employees pick up the slack of empty positions.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork with off-site employees more. Find an alternative healthcare program for people in areas not well served by United Healthcare.

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