- Adequate Pay - (I have no other pros but Glassdoor requires at least 5 words)
- No Work/Life Balance (Our department that handles TRICARE works 65 hours a week mandatory) - Horrendous Management - They put out fires every day and offer no real solution to a problem, they just re-visit it once it explodes again - Lack of any real management - Our 'Director' doesn't know how to use Excel or Word...4

In this field I have been compensated for meeting and exceeding goals. We also relate alot of what we do to our core Values which helps our employers understand the value of what we do for our customers.
This job is very demanding. you need to be able to adapt to changes very quickly and communicate those changes effectively. This job is very fast paced and does not allow a good work life balance.

Humedica has a great environment and co-workers/managers are very helpful. Compensation is pretty good, not great, but benefits are very good such as the employee stock purchase and 401k matching after merging with United Health Group/Optum. The flexibility of working remotely and pretty generous vacation time leads to nice work life balance.
There is not much career development, goals can be a little too team-oriented making it hard to distinguish oneself for annual review, not much incentive to actually work above and beyond since raises and bonuses seem to be capped even though Optum is doing great as a business.2

Work/life balance is valued here; the company offers lots of telecommute positions at all levels.
It’s a big company, so sometimes you have to go looking for answers on your own.

Depending on the area that you work in the work life balance can be great! Vacation time is a plus since you start with 23 days.
Depending on your job function this is a very difficult place to advance. The company has grown too quick, and is leaving many of its employees behind. If you fall under a corporate role, be prepared to be overworked and under appreciated. Salary and bonuses are only discussed once per year at review time unless you do lots of digging and present lots of evidence why your salary should be adjusted. The company has taken a turn the last few years, and no longer offers any appealing benefits beyond the stock purchase program -- if you can afford to participate.4

When I first started with the company, I was working locally before moving into large corporate accounts. The best thing I can say about working for the company is the people and the training opportunities. I developed some close friendships with a lot of people and still stay in touch with them. United does invest a lot in their employees and they do hire very qualified and educated people. They also do pay extremely well compared to other companies. They are also a very technologically advanced company and customers like that.
Although they hire the best and pay you extremely well, it comes at a price. There is no work/life balance in this type of role in the organization and it is very stressful. Most roles there do require a lot of work. They demand a lot from their employees. You are expected to put in long hours and you have to get the job done no matter what. I suffered from extreme anxiety, insomnia and fatigue when I was there and that was one of the reasons I left. Also, this is a VERY corporate environment, so if you are not into that type of environment, I would suggest staying far away. I have also seen managers leave because of the stress. Also, the benefits are not good now. Everyone is on a high deductible plan. No one sees the doctor because of everything is out of pocket until you hit your deductible.4

Ability to work remotely which would offer better work life balance even for managers handling large span Competitive salary Very good culture, supportive leaders, puts the welfare of their people first
Confusing organizational structure - HR team are assigned to specific leaders which results to non calibrated policy implementation and some leaders being left out of communication. Leaders are based in other countries which is challenging for employee touchbase. High management position assigned to handle small teams which results to waste of talent and lack of learning opportunity for that manager Average healthcare coverage - I was expecting very good HMO since this is a healthcare company5

UnitedHealth Group values work life balance & this is a great company to work at. I have great management and am apart of a mentorship program.
They are not competitive in pay.
