Pros

Working from home. Benefits package is excellent.

Cons

Top down management who treat employees with a lack of regard. Lack of acknowledgement on a daily basis.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They should make an effort to treat employees with dignity, respect, and as professionals. Avoid sending groups of employees emails in which the inappropriate use of terseness and lack of regard for staff as they would wish to be treated. Need to educate managers on leadership trends in today's world, then follow through to encourage employees to speak up. Also, soliciting ideas from employee's would be beneficial for the company. We have great ideas. Nobody wants to hear them. Ultimately, member satisfaction, employee satisfaction, and fiscal health would be the results.

    Pros

    UHC has flexible schedules for my job position. There are opportunities to progress through a number of job positions. Potentially good opportunities for international workers or those interested in transferring to other locations because UHC has a number of locations across the United States. It could be easy to stay under the radar of some management and get by with doing little work, depending on position. Many meetings are held over the phone and/or Internet, so working from home is an option for some positions. If you just want a paycheck, UHC may not be a bad place to work.

    Cons

    Poor communication within and between teams at UHC. Information is hard to find. There is little face to face interaction since most meetings are held over the phone, including meetings between teams in the same physical location. There are many little messages that people are not valued at UHC. The primary focus appears to be performance as a company. Although there are efforts to change the culture of UHC, it will take years for this to be effective. Health insurance for employees is more complicated and includes less coverage for employees. Do not expect a warm atmosphere or any team building activities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Emphasize the importance of your employees; they are your first customers. Make them more than satisfied

    Pros

    There are no good reasons

    Cons

    Overworked, understaffed. Lack of direction from Senior Leadership

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out what it is you want the company to be. Spend the money to be world class at it. Stop blaming poor results on eveyone in the organiztion, it is the poor decisions by senior leadership that is hurting the company.
