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

Pros

Tele-commuting is promoted.
Lots of responsibility.

Cons

A lack of uniformity of policies across the company. I was hired to work ~50 hours a week, I went through a reorg and now work for a group the penalizes my boss if I work over 40 hours.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There seem to be a lot of policy revisions that get released that go unenforced. It seems like the company doesn't have a single direction.

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

    Pros

    Health insurance is offered at part time status.

    Cons

    Overly demanding culture with ethical issues. The concern of this company is making money at any cost. Senior physician executives treat the lower tiered physicians as if they are medical students and the evaluations reflect a tone of superiority. There are promises of bonuses which never materialized and are based on production. The quota to produce cases compromises the quality. In addition, there is a lot of secretarial work that you have to do as a physician.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shape up. You are physicians first and executives second. Your quest for money has clouded your vision and your judgement. Basd on what I have seen, I would not let you treat me or my family in a clinical situation.
