    Former Employee - QI Specialist in San Diego, CA (US)

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

    Pros

    United's values of integrity and compassion match my own values. I found the company to be dynamic, well-organized and on the cutting edge in managed healthcare. The balance between work and personal life is respected. Pride is taken in community volunteering. Human Resources are easy and pleasant to work with and the outplacement services of Lee Hecht Harrison are stellar.

    Cons

    Contracts get outbid, projects have a limited life-span and layoffs are painful. I've worked for United for 12 years and have been laid off twice. Am currently unemployed and trying hard to get rehired at United.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce the deductible and copayment on healthcare insurance for employees.

    Pros

    You're going to love your job as long as you are in a Senior role. The coworkers are neat and the environment is awesome! Comprehensive training

    Cons

    Customers complain of automated system, too many fatty foods, no credit cards in the cafeteria, and the gym equipment is garbage!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're doing your best and I can tell. Just continue using common sense and bringing in healthy snacks!

    It's always changing but somehow how it always stays the same

    I have been working at UnitedHealth Group

    Pros

    Working for a company the size and scale of UHG anything is possible. You truly have the ability to move the healthcare market. It can be a lot of fun if you're in the right area with the right political skill and support.

    Cons

    The financial focus of UHG becomes a fixation that drives every decision that the organization does not pretend to hide. It comes through in minimal employee health benefits, compensation philosophy built purely on market competition (it's easier to get a raise off a competitive offer than merit, etc.). If you embrace that philosophy as an employee and invest in the stock you'll be OK, but being a number is not rewarding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend time with your family. You only live once...
