    Too big for their own good

    Business Analyst (Current Employee) Baltimore, MD

    ProsGreat coworkers and work at home opportunities.

    ConsDealing with layers of corporate bureaucracy in Minnesota is frustrating. Limited health insurance options; all plans have high deductibles and out of pocket.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStep away from the metrics & reports for once and listen to advice from employees on the front line. Remove the handcuffs of red tape and allow acquired entities the freedom do what they do best.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Good place to start

    Clinical Administrative Coordinator (Current Employee) Baltimore, MD

    ProsI feel like the company actually cares about me. Everyone you work with is very nice and fun to be around. They also offer lots of opportunity for advancement.

    ConsFor this position there is mandatory overtime October through the end of the year. Also only get a 30 minute lunch break and two 15 minute breaks.

    poor training for a technical job and they work you to death

    Pharmacy Benefits Technician (Former Employee) Baltimore, MD

    ProsI cannot think of any unless you like a boat load of forced overtime.

    Cannot think of any unless you like getting yelled at for errors but they may be the result of poor training tactics.

    Cons*received poor training for a super technical job that has to be exactly right since Medicare rates the plan, in part, based on errors
    *management wishy washy on the direct report level
    *they work you to death without a care in the world, especially from dec-april.

    I received poor training (side by sides when the person you are sitting beside has no time to go thru their job or else they have to stay late to make up work, do not encourage the best outcome). They needed to provide one on one, textbook classroom training for a week or two in order to produce better outcomes, especially when the job is so technical and accuracy, especially in often tricky situations, is a necessity.

    They worked me to death (overtime was forced, you had no option to say no to any of it) to the tune of anywhere from 15-25 hours of overtime per check. The extra pay gets old really fast when you are gone from home 7am to 7pm every day. In one meeting, when someone complained about the overtime, his reply was something along the lines of "be glad you are getting paid for it." That is not proper leadership response, especially when a large part of the overtime was due to increased business that they knew 6 months prior was coming and they failed to adequately staff in advance.

    The report to management is passive agressive, at best, and outright moody/nasty in bad situations.

    Advice to Senior Managementbetter training will create better results and better medicare ratings with fewer errors.
    learn to staff adequately.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Best opportunity to grow and learn.

    Senior Account Manager (Former Employee) Baltimore, MD

    ProsUHC provides training and development opportunities. My Management was easy to talk to and very interested in helping staff grow and development. They were also very supportive of my goals and creativity and what I could bring to the team. Provided a great work/life balance.

    ConsThere is a very "who you know", cliquish" environment. It can be very competitive and cut throat.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReally get to know the entire staff not just managers that directly report to you.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
