Does UnitedHealth Group offer dental insurance?

Pros

Many different benefits available in the benedit package including 401k medical vision dental and even pet insurance

Cons

Medical plans are all high deductible options. For a health insurance company the premium plus deductible is very expensive and the worst I have seen in health insurance

Advice to Management

Get a copay option PPO.

At UnitedHealth Group, they provide several types of pension and welfare benefits. Countless companies in the United States, like UnitedHealth Group, sponsor group health plans, through which a large percentage of each worker's health insurance premium is covered by their employer.

Does UnitedHealth Group offer parental leave?

Pros

Reduced stock price, 401k sharing, new parental leave benefit, sometimes depending on area you can work from home

Cons

Inconsistent workloads between groups, most IT is offshore and/or done with H1B consultants/employees, lack of ability to move up or to different departments

Advice to Management

Stop the practice of not letting your best performers apply to different areas. As women are poorly represented in higher ranks, blocking them from internal transfers is sexist. I talked to HR Direct and was told as long as this was done between hiring managers and HR was not included, it was legal. This place is known for blocking their employees from further growth opportunities, not just women, but women make up a larger share of the lower jobs that are participating in this practice.

Does UnitedHealth Group offer a wellness program?

Pros

We do have a wellness program that will reimburse us as employees into there HSA account a very nice sum of monies. There are screenings that you will need to complete first. Discounts given sure fun to look through but NOT really a discount at all. Sign up with a phone service who gives money back; this is all third party. Good luck with that. The longer you work the more you’re you will gather for PTO. Each paycheck you incure hours. 5.xx is starting then you go up to 8.75 per paycheck and you can buy hours during enrollment. Wellness offers 5 free EAP counseling session per year per dependent.

Cons

CHEAP COMPANY. Hard to believe with what is above right. Some years they might give bonuses to ALL employees and some years yes. Raises are a JOKE. If your manager likes you, you sitting pretty. My old manager had changed an other Co-workers title just to get them the money to go with the title. So-yes. UHC is very mean girls- bully on the playground. AWFUL. Long time employee. I’m stuck, to start over at a new job, would just be awful. OHHH.. Certain positions-don’t make 3 mistakes or you will be written up. Must be perfect

Advice to Management

Get it together. Some of you are cheaters and some of you just expect more than employees can give sometimes. We try are best and mistakes are bound to happen.
