    I have been working at UHC full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Incredibly smart people who are passionate about improving healthcare and working with hospitals to improve their performance.

    Cons

    Currently going through a messy reorganization that has been driven from the top down. Senior Leadership is out of touch. Their focus on keeping head count low instead of providing adequate resources and staffing despite incredible surplus returned to members. Provide plenty of bells and whistles for marketing, HR, finance, etc but don't provide adequate staffing for the tools and data products that that drive the company. If they continue on this path, they will lose their employees and their members to Premiere, Crimson, Truven and all of the other competitors who are chomping at the bit to take over. Supply Chain services are sacred.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Redirect some of your marketing resources to actually provide support staff for your tools and data products. You won't be able to make the leap to innovation and consulting if everyone drops your tools because they don't know how to use them and support staff doesn't exist because you won't increase headcount.

    Pros

    Work life balance is the only pro in this company.

    Cons

    Talk about too many chiefs! They keep adding and promoting Vice Presidents.This is one of the most top-heavy companies. That goes right along with the fact that compensation focuses on VPs - everyone else is a dime a dozen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend less time and money on trying to get the senior management to play nice with each other and spend more time on the worker bees.

    I worked at UHC full-time

    Pros

    The staff at UHC have talent by the truckload. The company goes out of it's way to make working there fun. They treat their travelers well as long as you travel enough by moving-target standards.

    Cons

    They make promises but do not invest in the resources to deliver. Senior leadership brings in cronies from old jobs even when they are not qualified for their positions, and only the favorites are ever moved up. You quickly reach a ceiling and there is no way around it. Senior leadership is completely out of touch with the member hospitals and the industry in general.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create promotional career ladders and develop from within rather than recruiting unknown talents from outside that do not fit the culture. When you have high performers, spend time and resources retaining them rather than trying to make under-performers (including leaderships) work. Stop creating positions to fill a momentary need or issue, and instead expand the scope of current positions and delegate stable processes down to lower pay grades so that those folks can develop too.

    I have been working at UHC

    Pros

    Work-life balance and managers on down are the best part of this company. Working with academic medical centers to assist in improving healthcare nationwide can be personally rewarding.

    Cons

    The integrity of a few of the senior leaders is more than questionable; behavior is known and ignored. Directors and above are promoted, etc regularly...everyone else is stagnant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay closer attention to your senior management, they are by no means only interested in what is good for the company.
