Sam Edit Adjuster (Former Employee), Telecommuter ny – August 15, 2014
Pros: pto time was good
Cons: felt like just a number that you could be easily replaceds
Hard to feel like a important part of the company. Hours were flexible... It was required to work minumum 10 hours a week overtime for 6 years then it was all pulled away. Company's answer was you shouldn't depend on overtime...
Business Analyst (Current Employee), Maryland – July 30, 2015
Cons: Management, Pay, and Health Benefits
UHG does not have a Union. Employees that transfer or get promoted to new positions are paid below market value. It is extremely hard for employees to grow financially and career wise. During reorganizations, UHG allows upper management to place holds on departments,that keeps employees from transfering or being considered for other positions within the company. The health benefits are not good.
The company offers nice discounts and work force training (certifications).
Human Resource Direct Service Advisor (Current Employee), Minnetonka, MN – July 29, 2015
I love the organization as a whole and believe that they work hard to encompass their employees needs. It is a great place to advance your career as they offer many different opportunities and with the fast growth of the company as well.

Good Experience with Above Average Benefits Package
Government Programs Enrollment Representative II (Former Employee), Las Vegas, NV – July 28, 2015
Pros: Excellent Benefits Packages
Cons: As with most large corporations, the employee can get lost in the numbers.
In the time I had working for UnitedHealth Group I found it a place with high expectations and a supportive team environment. Being a health insurance company the health benefits package was extensive and included benefits other companies are generally unable to offer due to costs.
Broker Manager/Independent Agent (Current Employee), Corpus Christi – July 27, 2015
The great part of the job is working with so many great people. Being broker manager gives me a chance to lead by example and train my agents to do what I do. The UHC Broker Sales Managers are quite helpful in what they do for our teams. They are always willing to lend a hand. The downside is the compensation with UHC. They have a constant stream of chargebacks and overpayments. It not a good way to run a business.
UnitedHealth Group is a good company to work for. I have enjoyed the chance to meet a few interesting people while employed here. There are limited chances for career advancement in my specific area of the company, so I am seeking a chance to grow within or at another company.
Clinical Administrative Coordinator (Former Employee), Phoenix – July 23, 2015
Pros: You get to take care of amazing patients
Cons: everything about this company!
Once United Healthcare cam in and took over Hospice Inspiris the company went to the dumps. They don't care about their employees or their patients, they just want the census and the numbers. they do not have a good reputation in the community at all. If you go to work as a field hospice nurse, be prepaired to give up all hours of your life! They suck the energy out of you. Management is horrible!
Great place to work. uhc hires amazing and well respected people
advocate4me rep (Current Employee), Greensboro, NC – July 23, 2015
I love what i do at uhc. uhc is numbers driven but we have supervisor who allows that balance of work and life. We are growing at a rapid pace and we have great opportunities to move up in the company.
At first it sounds great cause its a day shift, no weekends position. Then more and more gets dumped on you. The other employees are not the problem. The philosophy that's been changed get over the course of the last year is the problem. This was once considered the cream of the crop of call centers for this area. Trust, it is now the dumpster. Take your talent elsewhere where you'll be appreciated. And to a company that will actually allow you to use your vacation time.
