    Pros

    Great environment. Had one of the best teams that there was. Great leaders in Sales and other depts.

    Cons

    Apparently the CEO was hiding some money and making it seem like everything was peachy keen. Then the company filed bankruptcy.

    Pros

    Some of the residents are really cute and remind you of your favorite Grandparent

    Cons

    Everything is old and/or broken. They spend more money on making it look safe then they actually spend on making it safe. They still have crank beds and the mechanical beds don't work most of the time so you have to move the cords around till you get some power and hope you don't get fried. The pay is not competitive for this field and there is no room for growth unless you know someone or are related to someone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give employees something to be motivated about. There is no excitement or morale boost going on. When you come in there is nothing to look forward to but being overworked,underpaid,underappreciated and beat up by the residents.

    I have been working at Universal Health Care full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good compensation and benefits (free Gym membership and free snacks). Great restaurants in Downtown St. Pete area (we had up to 15% dsct in some restaurants)

    Cons

    It was a very disorganized company. Some member services women directors were very rude, unethical and unprofessional. I never understood how they got promoted. Ohhh wait!!! I remembered now, you had to know people in order to get a promotion, yes I am not kidding!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too bad that the founder and CEO Dr. Desai never heard any advice, now it's too late, company got shut down by Feds on March 28th.

    Pros

    Those employees who in the trenches doing the day-to-day work are some of the nicest people I have ever worked with!

    Cons

    Senior management is terrible at communicating and often intentionally misled their employees in an effort to gloss over or hide the financial and operational mismanagement of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of the way and let the workers lead!

    Pros

    Some wonderful individuals work for the company. Downtown St. Petersburg location is close to restaurants, waterfront, etc..Lots of events and parades occur right outside the front door.

    Cons

    Mismanagement, greed and poor business decisions have doomed the company. No communication to employees from the executive leadership. Many talented staff were laid off, forced out, or had their career growth stinted due to the ugly internal politics. Everyone else is searching hard for a new job. Do yourself and favor and just cross off UHC as an option. Members, providers and staff unhappy. If the company finds new investors and stays open, wait 10 years until they turn it around and then apply.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lawyer up and pray for forgiveness.
