    Pros

    Telecommute is about it for the Pros.

    Cons

    Upper management is challenging. I was exposed to some very bad management in the way of no empathy for a new person trying to learn, snide remarks, micromanagement, poor communication, lack of guidance. There is not a way to truly learn the business without a good strong mentor that is encouraging, possesses strong knowledge, is eager to help, and has strong communication. The environment is extremely stressful. They offer no training of the business, it is expected to just jump in and sink or swim. Not an open and welcoming company except for a few individuals that have experience elsewhere that they bring to United.

    Advice to Management

    Institute a training program around the particular business so that new folks understand some of what they are doing. Ensure the managers are well qualified, you currently have managers that have no business in management, they do NOT know how to support their employees nor mentor and coach them. They do not even think part of their job is to do this. A good manager coaches, mentors, and works to develop their employees, they care bout their employees and put the development of their team as a priority. They get off their but and provide their employees what they need to be successful. A good successful manager stands behind their employees and takes the time to help them develop their knowledge. Get rid of the dead weight that you have in the organization. Pay attention to those that are micromanaging and provide them knowledge around how much this wastes time and de-motivates employees.

    Pros

    Good worklife balance.

    Foutune 10 company.

    Cons

    Toxic leaders

    Talented resources reporting to useless leaders making a fat leadership

    No plans to get rid of useless leaders instead of bringing them to useless roles.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of non performing leaders. If you are just adjusting them to other portfolio then you are already paying the price to loose the talented leaders.

    Non of the leadership team has health care domain knowledge and vision.

    They are obsessed with showcase activities.
    Get some leaders who knew the health care market trends.
