Suggestions for improvement

  • reviews from piers as well as managers. also try and not have such a toxic environment. many employees i worked with were afraid to report/say anything regarding specific managers because they were known to fire anyone who spoke against them. one person i know changed her explination of what she saw go on because she could not afford to loose her job.

What I like about the company

they helped me continue my education while i worked.

What I dislike about the company

no over sight of many managers. many are promoted based on friends rather than what they accomplished. also we had many projects fail because upper management took the word of lower management that something could be accomplished when it could not. one project in particular cost us millions, because they took the word of one manager, without checking it out to see if the project could be done that way.

Company Culture

Most team mates were easy to work with and had a good work ethic. They helped overcome some of the issues with the management culture.

Support from management

Most team mates were easy to work with and had a good work ethic. They helped overcome some of the issues with the management culture.

Teamwork

They tried, there were just too many people that didn't want to.

Freedom to work independently

If you did a good job they mostly left you alone.

Internal Communication

The management isn't as good as they like to make it seem. They mostly communicated about negative things and weren't very supportive.

Gender Equality

Most the management was women.

Attitude towards older colleagues

I don't believe they were treated differently.

Career Development

They say you can move up but it's harder than they make it seem and there's favoritism

Overall compensation for your work

Made decent money

Office / Work Environment

No issues

Environmental Friendliness

The minimum yes

Work-Life Balance

Not enough time off available and poor attendance policies.

Company Image

I was at first but it changed

Job Security

I did except for poor management at the end

Handicapped Accessibility

Lots of disabled people work there

Workplace Safety

Things were fixed fairly quickly

Challenging Work

The job could be draining but wasn't overly hard.

Inclusive / Diverse

They did but didn't know to deal with people not getting along.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Care more for employees including better insurance and time off. Have management do the job before telling others how to. Actually help people instead of only seeing money.

What I like about the company

If management is good the job is decent. The job itself wasn't bad I enjoyed helping people. The pay made it worth it .

What I dislike about the company

Management is horrible. They need to improve benefits. Better attendance policy and time off.

Company Culture

United Healthcare preaches there company culture. But does not practice it! The company at one time had fantastic management in Arizona, but over the last two years has failed to find the right management, mostly with the Medicaid/Medicare teams. Employees are miserable, and feel they have no work-life balance. Center for Medicaid/Medicare should really investigate United Healthcare and there practices.

Support from management

Management on the Medicaid/Medicare Team in Arizona has been appalling, Rudeness to there subordinates, no integrity, and no ethics.

Teamwork

Teamwork with the team is good, but with poor management the team has suffered. Leaving no one to communicate effectively, and only trying to hold on to there job.

Freedom to work independently

At one time yes, but the last two years we're micromanaged.

Internal Communication

Communication over the last two years, has been derogatory, condescending, and disrespectful.

Gender Equality

If you're a female working for United Healthcare you get treated well, (if you're a favorite) and don't stand up to the bully), but a male employee doesn't receive the same respect. Males are harassed by female managers in a suggestive sexual manners.

Career Development

I have asked for help in finding another position with a team ending, Management said, "No help, you're on your own. " Other team employees from other teams have been helpful.

Overall compensation for your work

The work load has increased over the last two years, but no compensation for that.

Environmental Friendliness

The last two years have been strained in the environment at United Healthcare.

Work-Life Balance

Work-Life Balance has changed in the last two years, working 12 hours a day on a 8 hour pay.

Company Image

United Healthcare puts on this great work Image, but they have failed with their employees, Providers, and hospitals. Just bringing the name up in public has Providers, hospitals and medical communities cringing. CMM should be concerned, and State Medicaid plans should think twice before awarding a contract to United Healthcare.

Job Security

Everyday we feel that are walking papers are coming.

Inclusive / Diverse

Diversity if you're a female, a male no.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Management needs a complete overhaul, and well trained Managers to run a great team. Almost all the employees at United Healthcare are great, and really do care for the Members/Patients.
