    Pros

    The best things about working here is the team atmosphere. I worke with very talented, intelligent, and nice people. Pay is good as well.

    Cons

    For being an insurance company you'd think they would offer great benefits. Not so much, the benefits are just ok.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Don't forget who we are serving and how important their needs are. Also, thanks for being responsive to solid improvement ideas from the rank and file.

    Pros

    competitive pay, co workers, job satisfaction

    Cons

    Xlhealth was a great company until United Health group came on board with their corporate mentality and financial fitness program. I think overall UHG is a good company with room for advancemnt but management in place does not care about their employees

    Former Employee - Resolution Recovery Analyst Senior in Houston, TX (US)

    I worked at UnitedHealth Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very cool job where you just go into your assigned hospitals, identify the accounts that have the largest overpayments, and work the math problems and do the paperwork to turn in so that the appropriate party gets their money refunded. Pay was decent, coworkers were fantastic and benefits were good. You must be a people person and know how to build and maintain good working relationships with the hospitals at which you contract.

    Cons

    Once in a while, you'll have a "team-member" who may try to steal accounts to work out of your assigned account queue. You just have to watch for this and report it to management to keep things fair, otherwise, you're letting your coworker pretty much steal money that would be yours. The only other cons were the layoffs we had in 2009 and 2010.

    Pros

    The people I worked with were wonderful and were like family. The site promoted employee engagement and the salary was very fair.

    Cons

    Too many stringent corporate policies which stifled creativity and innovation. Micro-management takes the joy out of doing one's job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop micro-managing and allow the various sites to do what they do best. They don't have to be clones of each other.
