    I worked at UCARE for more than a year

    Pros

    Organization has huge opportunities if it can get out of its own way
    Generally treats all staff quite well
    Decent benefits

    Cons

    Highly passive aggressive staff
    High School level of clicks, social politics, and vendettas
    Complete lack of clear direction, strategy, or individual accountability
    FTEs in roles based on who they know, not having the appropriate skills for the job
    General desire from staff for continuous improvement, little to no executive management support, or staff desire to engage in the effort to make change occur

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clearly define and continuously promote annual strategy; hire employees and stop renting talent; empower your mid-level management, create a culture of accountability.

    I have been working at UCARE as a contractor

    Pros

    UCare is a growing company so there is a lot of good things look forward to.

    Cons

    UCare is a growing company so there is a need to put together more processes to manage business better. It is and will be painful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The turf wars must stop. The upper management has to get the middle management on board with a vision and then stick to it!
