    Pros

    UHG tells you up front that your career is your own. They promote it and expect that you will move around as much as you want to. If you take a new job you have to stay in it for year and then you are free to go - anywhere - you can apply for new jobs in any aspect of the company - internal recruiters help hiring managers and employees through the process. You can move anywhere your skills can take you. the company is a pay-for-performance company so they expect that 20% of bonus eligible people which is almost every one do not get bonuses and those who are eligible and are the high performers get an additional amount.

    Cons

    If you are a person who wants your manager to give you a promotion, that rarely happens at UHG. Compensation is fair however as you move around your promotional $$ is limited to 10% so incoming hires can make more than those who are moving around in side the company. Benefits are middle of the road - I've seen better and worse.

    I worked at UnitedHealth Group

    Pros

    Different schedules to chose from, lots of PTO, good benefits, tons of paid holidays, managers are awesome and care about their workers, positive people, fun environment, company get togethers, and competitive salaries. I never had a complaint when I worked here, the only complaint was the phones were extremely busy, but hey, that was my job to answer phones. OH AND A LOT OF ROOM FOR ADVANCEMENT!!!

    Cons

    Nothing really, besides long hiring process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work! Great company!!

    I worked at UnitedHealth Group

    Pros

    There is mobility in the company.

    Cons

    Unfortunately salaries have not gone up too much since I worked their several years ago.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Due to the high turnover rate it would be an incentive to return if they offered a better salary and benefits package.

    Pros

    Love the passion the people I work with have. You have the ability to earn the respect that allows you to make decisions and drive change.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be challenging. Ambiguity in roles and responsibilities is difficult to deal with. Internal employees often passed over for individuals from either consulting houses or other industries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire what you need, not who you want. Trust your employees.
