Pros

UHG offers a good PTO program in that most jobs start with 23 days a year. The downside is that if you leave the company you don't get paid out for your PTO time accrued, however if you have used more than accrued you pay the company. Seems a little one-sided to me. The other thing I like about UHG is that there are always plenty of advancement opportunities within the company. They are sometimes hard to get because you are competing with other internal and external candidates.

Cons

Work/Life balance has not always been a priority, but it is getting better. Our medical benefits are less than desirable. Charge me a little more for good coverage and I'll gladly pay it. Wearing a "choke collar" all day is a thing of the past for people that sit in a cubicle all day.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create an environment that encourges employee involvement and allow employees to make a mistake once in a while. It will yield engaged employees that take pride and ownership in what they do.

    Pros

    Salary, benefits, time off. Excellent group of people to work with. Better than any organization I have worked for. Lack of politics amongst peers, and people are willing to help out and go the extra mile. Opportunities to get involved in many different things if you are willing to pursue them.

    Cons

    Risk averse culture, large slow-moving company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trim the fat.
