I was doing my job very well untill my new manager (DE) Abhishek kumar . He screwed my life extra work pressure because I was not willing to go out with him and I could not please him by going on night outs..In a week's time he would do twice one on one to convince me to go on night out with him. I finally had to put an end to my career where I aspired to become something he would threat me by saying if you can't go out with me how can I promote you.. that means I was to fullfill his desires?? I with heavy heart helplessly resigned.. I didn't go out to ER to report him..because if I had done that it would've been third instance of going to ER ..there were many girls who reported some of them like me couldn't report because thinking that if we take his job away how his family will survive morally I was right. Because such was my upbringing... I informed abt it to then DM I don't remember the name. He was new to the team then ..he also was very much impressed by that Satan because all his job was to please the upper management. This was my journey in uhg on bitter note I left and i now repent that I could have gone ahead and spoken about things with HR team..He screwed my career, job by harrassing me.

Dislikes

Hello! Everyone, First of all "All the best" for the candidates who are applying for this company.

Well... My Overall work experience at united Health group was "GOOD". I have joined this company as a fresher. Company provides a decent pay for the freshers and I have no idea about the pay details for experienced candidates...

Firstly, the Interview process has 3 rounds (Personal Interview) (Written Test) (Manager Round)

Secondly, the Training period depends upon the type of process you are in and Company provides a trainer who has good knowledge about the subject and the policies of the company.

Coming to the Career growth, Company provides good opportunities for the candidates in the form of IJP's.

It's just like play smart and win.. of course there is scope for" POLITICS".

Coming to the appraisal, its based on your monthly performance.... Company gives preference for the employees who are productive and efficient... the Annual Hikes are satisfactory for the people who performs consistently well.. Company will give you more, than what you expect....

Company will provide you free cab facility which includes both pick and drop... UHG has a good transport team in performing their duties efficiently without any confusion.

UHG also provides us learning courses like business etiquette, business writing skills etc..where people can enroll and attend the courses. It provides a very good working environment where you get an opportunity to work with many talented people.

Work - life balance is purely personal opinion as some people are comfortable in day and some are in night shifts..

so, Overall its a good experience and fun working at UHG..

Guys, beware ! In India, your payroll will be OPTUM, not UHG. They are misguiding people in the name of fortune company. It is not UnitedHealth Group, it is OPTUM. There's nothing good about Optum.

Dislikes

Look at what happens here - Only managers can bring their car inside company premises ! If below grade 28, u won't get parking sticker, & u park your car 1 km away, and walk that distance even at midnight on the dark road. If you leave office before 8:30, u won't get cab, u need to travel by company bus, that will take many hours to drop u till nodal point, far away from your home. work from facility very restricted, depends upon manager and director. if you are promoted to a higher level, it will be reverted back next year, for no reason. Most likely, you will never get chance to travel onsite, bcoz only managers & directors travel .. Lol. This company deducts ur variable pay for paying you awards ! lol .. so you will never get full variable pay even at top rating ! Managers will judge you on clothes, not work. They have zero technical knowledge , just do politics & sit idle. GUYS,BELIEVE ME, IF YOU JOIN OPTUM, YOU WILL REGRET FOR WORST DECISION OF YOUR LIFE.

Work

Optum Global Solutions - It is not an employee friendly company at all. Pay is low, and policies are mostly against the employee. Do not join this company ever.

> job security is good no need to worry about that,career growth i dint think so i have seen many ppl still struggling for there appraisal
>salary is based on our role & position its not that much bad wen compare to other mnc`s
> UHG handles a fantastic transport system no doubt in that
politics is every were we see in mnc`s in UHG it have little bit more im the one the victim of that
>learning its depend up on our time a work balance if u r really interested to learn something definitely company will help u
>work environment is pretty cool no pressure its a fun place actually can enjoy our work station
>innovation its depend up on ur talent & way of thinking we do have a very good innovation team as well so can do it
>work life balance- is as usual depending up on ur life style and worl style if u balance the both thing similarly can have good work life balance.

Dislikes

the one most thing i dislike is late night shifts were we don`t have night shift allowance for that & the management is not all transparency do u have any complain on ur manager if u reached to higher authority definitely they will point on u that will be exposed to ur manager & they will keep on targating on u & ur carrier.

Work

its pretty cool can have a many opportunity's to setup ur carrier

There is very slow growth in term of technologies with very few chance to move from old technologies to new technologies.There is hardly chance to onsite . As part of appraisal , Average hike is 8 to 9%. So far It is the manager driven company . There are many employees who have no technical as well as functional knowledge are placed at higher positions . So you will get promotion only if you are your manager 's favorite .
The only thing is good about this company is Work life balance . If your team is good then you can easily manage your personal life with office work. My team mates are good.

Dislikes

There is very slow growth due to higher number of experience people on higher positions. It may be possible there are 2 or more leads in 10 member of team .There is very hard chance to onsite now and max duration of onsite is 6 months. Compensation is also average and below average due to higher percentage of variable part .Variable is 15% of fixed salary and it is annually payable . You will get full variable if you are top performer . For fresher , it is not a good choice as there is no training in for fresher.

Work

There is no much work pressure but some time you need to work hard to deliver the project on time . Some time I feels bore because of repetitive work and same technology.

Nothing I like in UGH. Full politics no growth even after working for 4 to 5 years.

Dislikes

Long working hours nearly 13 hours 9.3 hours plus transport timing. If there was an overtime or stretch you will go to home for sleep for around 5 hours. You have to forget your family and kids. You cannot do your own work. Mobiles are restricted for some span no alternative telephone for any urgency. You cannot intimate regarding emergency or unexcept leaves to managers as they do not have mobiles which peanalis you on performance or behaviour issue. I had noticed Sexual harassment and sexual favour asked by employee which were not taken to notice to HR. There is no HR particularly, to raise escalation it will be like calling to customer care. Work tensions are less but you will face issues with manager regarding performance ratings even if you are good. Totally Optum or UHG is just a place for temporar hang out. If you joined make sure to realise things arround you reg incentives, promotions and other work related things to consider. If you come to know they are bad leave as soon as

One of the best company to work but salary growth is like null. Here your manager is everything, if you performed very well even then it's totally depend on your manager only, if he want to give you hike or not. I have not seen any career growth in last 5 yrs. Worst teammates, so much politics.

Dislikes

Since Optum take over United health group then it's become a worst company. Noone listen about employee growth, they are focusing only on cost cutting and firing employees without any genuine reasons only because of cost cutting. They will never see your performance, if your manager decide, he will give you hike otherwise he will put you in CAP without any reason. After that noone listen to you, whether you go to HR or higher level. Here manager thoughts they are the owner of company. If any company is not in favour of growth of his own employees then it is the worst company ever in term of simple language. If you care for your employees then they care for your business. It's as simple as that.

Unethical company. Their ethics are compassion, empathy etc... All those are shit. No one is following that.
They will hire u on the name of UnitedHealth, later on they will move u in Optum. Recruiter won't explain u the payment module clearly, once u will join then u come to know yr real 'in hand' salary.
Laptop can blast at any time due to technical issue, it had happened with one of colleague.

They can ask u anytime to leave by telling that u are underperforming candidate (unethical) without giving u any compensation, however u will be receiving appreciation from other colleagues and VP.

Manager will ask u to do his work and won't count that during review meeting.

They have provided relieving letter after 2 and half month after series of mails and calls.

Worse.. u need to work on weekends too.

Operations teammates are good. Training is good. No job security and career growth in operations team. Learning is good. Entire process is good except managers. They will torture you like anything until you became a favorite for them.

Dislikes

Compensarion/salary hike is less and it depends on manager discretion, not on employee performance. Operations management will force you people to work on every Saturdays and Sundays for that they will call it as business requirement. They will not allow you to take your entitled leaves. For one day sick leave also they will ask you to submit medical certificate. Managers do not value individual strength and performance. They don't like questioning and straight forward people. They will like people who are supporting them, spying and who will play politics. People who are very close to managers will get promoted and more salary hike than others.

Thank you so much for the opportunity to worked such a wonderful company that I had ever worked in my career. I worked for the claim process , I genuinely enjoyed with worked and learning more about your customer base and company's philosophy service. Your support throught my career shows just how incredible of a friend you are. Your warmth, generosity, and kindness mean the world to me. My customer focus, coupled with my degree in management, makes me an excellent match for this position. I loved to work again such a elegant company and hope to be part of such an oustanding organization once again.!!
