I have been working at UPMC Health Plan full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

- Work flexibility: You can telecommute and also go to doctor's appointments and other short appointments without taking time off
- Peers: Most people are kind hearted, loyal and good employees

Cons

- Executives: The executives in this company are mostly all fashioned people who do not manage this company as if it were a data oriented company. This is evident when you see the skills and products of the people they trust to give them advice. Most decisions are made on low tech disease accounting masked as "data analysis".

- Management: Most managers are incompetent. Managers tend to focus on protecting their feud rather than improving the information they create or the processes they administer.

- Incompetence: Due to the low wages there are lots of people who lack the skills to do a good job in their role.

- Low wages: less than competition (Highmark) or similar jobs in other companies

-High turnover: Key departments have a high high turnover of employees due to the incompetence of the directors and the high profile executives.

Overall: The Health Plan is a lousy company managed by incompetent managers that are directed by old fashioned and ignorant executives. Highmark should have no problem crushing them and taking over the entire market.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Diane: you should can treat the company with respect. Find competent analytical people, get rid of the relics that you have leading the analitycs area and the IT area. Stop throwing tantrums and re-structure the company to make it functional and not like a puzzle glued with water.

    I worked at UPMC Health Plan as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Helpful management team, always wanted to help and provide legitimate hands on work experience. I enjoyed the department I worked in thoroughly.

    Cons

    Not too many, however there were some administrative problems that sometimes resulted in confusion or logistical errors. Nothing other than that, which was a small issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more opportunities for internships and training for those who have just graduated college.

    I have been working at UPMC Health Plan full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    There are flexible work hours, there is opportunity for growth, several locations if you work at one of the hospitals, they focus on health initiatives, nice atmosphere, also most positions are Monday through Friday.

    Cons

    There is no free or discount parking available. Very few days to dress business casual in the office where you do not deal with customers face to face.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice to have free and/or discounted parking and business casual days.
