    Pros

    Job security, wages, large network.

    Cons

    Health care and benefits, recognition, corrupt culture.

    Advice to Management

    All employees should have access to the same health coverage. Not upper management have the best and cheapest coverage and the staff have only expensive catastrophic coverage.

    Pros

    opportunities for growth and advancement are available

    Cons

    dog-eat-dog environment. On a grand scale UHG does not live its values.

    Advice to Management

    it should be common sense but UHG needs to show management how to be fair. Go back to basics because management does not get it.
