Upper management works long hours and a great deal is demanded of them. I've seen e-mails sent as late as 11 PM, even 1 AM. There are a lot of women working in upper management at this company, but they have been working at UHC for eight, ten years if you can stick it out that long.

    On my specific team, my manager, is flexible when I have to leave to go to doctor's appointments, etc. She and her co-manager are flexible when other team members have to address issues with their children, etc. Her co-manager leaves at 5 PM sharp regardless to pick up his daughter from daycare.

    Create postions (i.e. come up with the added money) to promote mid-level employees when recommended by their managers, when the position is needed and when the employee is qualified.

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. There are a lot of women in top positions at this very large company, however I have found it difficult to get a promotion.

A great place to work as a woman. The balance with family and work is there, making a difference.

Telecommute is a preferred option for many roles. Tremendous work life balance.

I've had a good career so far at the company but I do recognize that a large part of my experience has to do with the leaders I was able to work for. I'm sure this is true in most large organizations.

    Again large company so it depends on the leader and team- I have found there is more flexibility outside of the corporate offices in MN.

    Maybe. It's a large company- I've had mostly positive experiences and wonderful female mentors. I can't speak to all departments/groups though. I know some may be centered around a "boys club".

For a company this large, your experience will depend on the department and manager, but overall, the corporation strives to live out their cultural values of compassion, relationships, integrity, etc.

    They offer part or full-time telecommuting, generous PTO, and recently started offering paid maternity and/or paternity leave up to 4 weeks.

    When I took my maternity leave, they didn't offer paid leave, but my manager was very flexible and allowed me to telecommute full-time the entire first year after I had my baby. I was also able to work from home whenever my kid got sick. Starting January 2018, the company is offering 4 weeks of paid maternity/paternity leave.

UnitedHealth Group is at the forefront of healthcare innovation and generally has a great culture, however, it still has a way to go in reflecting diversity in its leadership.

    Flexibility largely depends on work area and leader. As such, flexibility is not a given or treated consistently.

    Maybe. It would depend largely on the work area and the leader/manager.

Be careful. They appear woman friendly but also say they are military friendly which has proven to be false.

    Change back HR's name to Human Resources, NOT Human Capital. Employees are people NOT property. Stop micromanaging with the little green running man tracking every keystroke then being questioned why you have any lag time. Basically tracking every time you even go to the restroom & how long it takes. Also 2 years ago this Insurance Company took away the option for CHAMPVA, recipients (I'm a Gold Star wife) to sign up & receive medical insurance benefits rather than relying solely on Government healthcare policies, yet they your themselves as a "military friendly" employer. This is not true. In 2 years I've gone to 3 different levels of management with answers given by none as to why thus hypocrisy exists. Obviously didn't use those words. Just wanted an explanation
