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

    Pros

    UnitedHealthcare is a great company to work for, especially if you’re entry-level. There are many opportunities to grow and I’ve learned quite a bit that will benefit my career in the future. They do well in promoting and developing talent, I’ve had three promotions in just a year. I’m very happy with management, they are communicative and make employees feel valued. My manager works with me to meet my goals as far as what my next career move in the company may be. I have many learning opportunities to learn about those roles. Culture is inclusive and diverse. Pay is respectable.

    Cons

    The benefit package could be improved upon. Deductibles on health insurance are a bit high, and there aren’t any non-managed care that have copays. Vision coverage is great, though.

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

    Pros

    •Fair Salary •Remote roles •Volunteer match program •Individual Health Insurance is really affordable •On-site health clinic •Online Learning

    Cons

    Mass layoffs are far too frequent-while many other companies CEO’s are forgoing their million dollar salaries to minimize RIF, it’s just not the case with UHC. Most recently an entire segment of roles was eliminated, only to have the same roles be posted for applicants with several days later. Using layoffs to meet their bottom line is just not a culture that values people.

    I worked at UnitedHealth Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Job security. Always a way for business managers to exploit you. You will never learn everything which for me was great because I like to comquer. Bore easily. If that's you than you belong.

    Cons

    Everything else. You wont get raises. Managers (if your a top performer) will KEEP YOU on the wheel because they make bonus off you performing well and sign off on promitions for people they want too but cant get rid of. Health insurance benefits are a joke and I dont understand how when we do so much for them ALL DAY!

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at UnitedHealth Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Many benefits at UHG: 1. Work from Home 2. Work life balance (minimum work which you can complete in 3/4 days) 3. Flexible timings 4. Health Insurance covered 5. Quarterly outing/lunch 6. Many Learning opportunities (Tuition Reimbursement available upto 50K per year) 7. Transport facility

    Cons

    Company is too good but the newly hired management is from Infy/TCS/some Indian MNC and changing the working culture of UHG. 1. One sided management 2. Lot of politics/favoritism 3. Manager/leads doesn't encourage your passion, everytime they care about their safe side 4. Poor ratings & hikes/RRP (this effects because of favoritism) 5. When the company switched to OGS (Optum Global Solutions) many things changed compared to the benefits of having at UHG.
