    Sales

    Sales Operations Specialist (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsThe company values other opinions. Recently the sales operations has moved to a virtual ops model, in which it has opened opportunities for SOSs

    ConsThe health insurance is horrible. Our customers receive better benefit packages than we do as employees. No telecommute for this position. Recently the SOSs were receiving commission, all of that has seized.

    Good employer...

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsWork to Life Balance is high. Leadership in select depts. will always have your back

    Excellent experience from the culture, management, and to the ability to telecommute full-time.

    Associate Director (Current Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsThe opportunity to telecommute full-time. Compensation package is solid.

    ConsIt's a large enterprise and consequently, change takes time. There's a lot of change, not always good and not always the fault of UHC, but it's constant and often inexplicable and ambiguous.
