No opinion of CEO

Pros

The people are laid back, the work is reasonable, and people generally seem happy. The training I was given was excellent, and everything else I needed I learned on the job. People in the firm were very friendly, and always willing to help each other out when there were questions or problems. Despite having multiple buildings spread over several blocks, there was a sense of collegiality and employees made efforts to go to lunch with coworkers in other offices.

Cons

The firm is very large so you may get lost in bureaucracy. Also, since the work you do is usually part of a much larger goal or objective, it is easy to lose sight of the larger picture.

Advice to Management

I think having more transparency about where the company is going would be useful.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Money and a somewhat safe healthcare industry. If you think you can change the industry it might be the place for you because the company seriously needs people to fix these dumb problems and help navigate through this massive company.

    Cons

    Way too much turnover. Management doesn't communicate and makes people want to leave the company. Kind of a dull place. They don't practice what they preach. No direction. No promtions. Place needs a new set of mgmt that aren't just old consultants!! Everyone is from accenture so that helps explain why people don't stay too long in there jobs at great old UHG!

    Advice to Management

    Communicate to your employees. Excite them to work there to encourage people to stay in there job and be productive. Pretty pathetic of a health and wellness company to not encorage a healthy lifestyle.


  2. "Enable others to act"

    Pros

    Top performance company. Okay benefits and salary. Easy to move up. There are quarterly vital surveys that survey all employee input. Leadership tries to celebrate the uniqueness and high performers but it's usually not done in a very motivating fashion. There is an innovative and creative atmosphere that encourages teams to question processes.

    Cons

    Metrics driven. Not employee friendly. New leadership makes it difficult to trust leadership at this time. We are experiencing a number of layoffs and management changes that tends to alienate and discourage employees. A lot of the benefits have been taken away. Holidays have been minimized. With new metrics and productivity tools employees are micromanaged.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage management to communicate to the very bottom of the food rank.
