UHG has 5 Core Values: Innovation, Integrity, Performance, Compassion & Relationships. Financial Performance Rules.

Director (Current Employee)
Edina, MN

ProsThere are some very smart people here. It's the most powerful health insurance company in the U.S. The company has great name recognition. Accountability and proving performance with various layers of scrutiny are part of working here.

ConsIf you are in a leadership position, you will be asked to do..., morally ambigious, things in order to save or make money. The company will goose their income statements by declaring no raise or bonus years, even though the company is making money hand over fist. As a person with direct reports, that's a hard story to tell. The work pace is crazy, you will work 50+ hrs a week here if you are grade 28 and above. Turnover is crazy, especially in the call centers and in leadership: grade 29 and above.

Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in your people. Invest in your customers. Live the values you put in the signatures of your emails a little more. Making/saving money shouldn't be the motive behind all decisions when people's lives are so clearly at stake.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
