Pros

A good portion of the people are great to work with. I found that at the individual division level and below, people function quite well and work together quite nicely. Once you move to the broader senior leadership, things start to fall apart.

Cons

Bad economic times lead to massive cuts but they still expect the same level of work. They should split the company back into its individual lines of business. They have their fingers in too many pots to keep a singular vision going. The one part of the company that I'm most worried about is UHC--they are going to drive the whole thing into the ground!

Advice to Management

Stop worrying about your bank account and start leading hte company. Split the company back into its individual lines of business and stop trying to force corporate ideals on such a diverse group.

    Pros

    If you like to be told what to do, how to do it, and why you are doing it..... If you are early in your career and looking to gain experience.

    Cons

    Super-sized organization with super-sized egos and very little focus on people. Throughout the acquision process our organization was treated like an unwelcome second cousin and this approach translates directly to the way they treat thier customers and how the organization is perceived by clients.

    Advice to Management

    Walk the talk! Take a hard look at the kind of leaders you are developing. Don't rely upon technology to solve all your problems. Invest more in your people and do it an way which uses techngoly to enable - not to dominate and control.

    Pros

    Working from home. Benefits package is excellent.

    Cons

    Top down management who treat employees with a lack of regard. Lack of acknowledgement on a daily basis.

    Advice to Management

    They should make an effort to treat employees with dignity, respect, and as professionals. Avoid sending groups of employees emails in which the inappropriate use of terseness and lack of regard for staff as they would wish to be treated. Need to educate managers on leadership trends in today's world, then follow through to encourage employees to speak up. Also, soliciting ideas from employee's would be beneficial for the company. We have great ideas. Nobody wants to hear them. Ultimately, member satisfaction, employee satisfaction, and fiscal health would be the results.
