    Pros

    Opportunity to telecommute if approved.

    Cons

    A lot of favoritism regarding promotions, access to educational funding. Dictator approach to managing employees. A lot of programs created at the corporate level are not support by management. The parent company UHG is very disconnected with the other business segment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have VP, Directors and Manager compensation also be based on the number of employees promoted, employees who obtain additional training, certifications or degree with their team and their own engagement with their team. Matrix could be set to measure their effectiveness in this area. Executive Senior Management needs to hold their management team more accountable and exhibit the thing they are asking of line staff. VPs Directors and Manager are poor examples of employee engagement, and innovativeness. Move from a Authoritarian, Dictatorship approach to a Collaborative Synergistic approach. The company executives need to look at Johnson and Johnson as a model and read the book, "All in, " by Chester Elton. He also wrote the Carrot Principle.
