Great company

Featured review

UnitedHealth Group selected this as a representative review
I enjoyed working for UHC. I relocated to another state however, and the assistance to transfer to another position that I qualified for was minimal to none. The benefits are decent, which include Bravos, which are points to obtain gift cards or purchase items from their internal store. There is not a work and balance life as your having to work overtime or on your time to meet deadlines and your review is dependent on you meeting those deadlines. The great thing about working at UHC was that I worked remotely and could work at any hour of the day. My manager and team were great, very helpful and knowledgeable in the LTC Medicaid program.


Bravos, great team environment


Fair benefits, work long hours, transfer to another position is hard

Official response from UnitedHealth Group

July 2, 2019
We appreciate your feedback!Good to hear you enjoyed the flexibility you got from telecommuting. Sounds like you were part of a great team and had an awesome manager. We wish you all the best!Thank you.Sudeshna S., Sr. Talent Community Manager, UnitedHealth Group.

Stay away. Protect yourself.

Easily the worst company I ever worked for. Turnover rate is ridiculously high. I had 3 different supervisors in the span of 7 months. Super gossipy and cliquey work environment. Management plays heavy favorites and will actively go out of their way to hinder your success if they don't like you. Pay and compensation for an insurance was laughable. I started in 2016 at $14/hour and people who were hired after me started at $15. I only ever received one raise in the five years I spent at this hole. By far the worst health coverage I've ever had at any job.Just a terrible, terrible company to work for.




Turnover, management incompetency, low pay, expensive health coverage, toxic.

Upper Management sux

Immediate team and manager - both good. Upper management - annoying. Pros: remote work, good vacation time. Cons: they monitor mouse movement, they give unrealistic quantitative goals. There is always a new program to learn. They don’t ask the front line people about efficiency- instead they create new initiatives just to be annoying.

Okay company , more focused on moving the mouse than actual quality of work . Pros is flex schedule and remote work. Other than that everything is fast paced and changing

Work from home

I really enjoy working from home and having the flexibility of start and end times. The pay could be better. Cross trained and didn’t get a past raise.

Overall a good company to work for-but be prepared for ongoing changes

Hard to advance in this company-very competitive with so many employees. Autonomy in your job role-must be a self motivated person to work for them. However hard to know what all is happening within the company due to its size. Never ending process changes.

The people are amazing and the ceo listens to you.

A typical day at work in Medical Benefit Account Management is fast-paced, diverse, and full of opportunities for growth. It involves managing client accounts, overseeing benefit program implementation, and collaborating with various stakeholders. This role has taught me the importance of effective communication, adaptability, and problem-solving skills in navigating complex benefit programs and staying abreast of industry trends and regulations.Management plays a crucial role in providing guidance, support, and resources. A strong management team fosters a positive work environment that encourages professional development and recognizes employee contributions.Workplace culture is a vital aspect, shaping the overall work experience. A culture that values collaboration, teamwork, and open communication fosters a supportive and engaging atmosphere, allowing for innovation and collective success.The hardest part of the job is managing multiple priorities and meeting tight deadlines while ensuring accuracy and compliance. Balancing the demands of clients, internal teams, and regulatory requirements can be challenging but provides opportunities for growth and development.The most enjoyable part of the job is witnessing the positive impact of effective benefit programs on employees' lives. Building strong relationships with clients and seeing the value our programs bring is highly rewarding. Additionally, collaborating with a dedicated and diverse team, overcoming challenges together, and fostering a sense of camaraderie contribute to a fulfilling work experience.

Productive fast paced work place

I enjoy my current position at United healthcare. As a customer service advocate for members. The call volume can get very high, so ability to multitask is a must. Great benefits and great opportunity to advance in your career as I have just accepted a position with landmark health as a telephonic patient engagement specialist.

Micromanage happy

They micromanage your entire day. They also frequently change your job description. You’re definitely just a number and use AI to judge your calls. Despite members telling you’re awesome on a call, you can still rate low if you don’t act fake enough or say enough positive trigger words.

A very good place to work and for job development. It is very open to different cultures. More opportunities to move to different departments. The salary is good

Teamwork & Supportive

Management is very teamwork oriented and provides support when asked. Does not micro-manage and you are able to work independently. Very flexible with time-off. Health benefits are below average.

UHG took over Optum and a few months late, like many companies started laying off people. Management is poor. I believe this group is focused much more on making money than providing good patient care.

You are responsible for many tasks and expected to get them done, Our practice has over 40000 patients and nine providers and on a good day maybe 5 front end people to check-in, check-out and answer phones. Plus call back patients to set up appointments.


paid days when the company closes


management. They only tell you whatyou want to here

It is textbook big business. Your experience is what you make it. Finding joy in the work requires having no expectations that the company has that responsibility to you. This is absolutely a corporate American behemoth.
