    Pros

    Excellent company to work for. Their pay structures are very aggressive with great incentives similar to military pay grade style. The training is second to none. It's so thorough that there is little excuse to be ignorant of any protocols and they pride themselves with information updates to remain competitive in the field. Not a boring job. Not a company for the lazy.

    Cons

    If you like things to stay the same this place is not for you. UHG is constantly changing their techniques and their approach which makes constant learning imperative. They overkill on meetings, again to remain razor sharp as a company but it has it's wear and tear. Requires High Energy as they always maximise employees time to get the most out of you. The insurance they offer is similar to any other medium sized company even though they are an insurance company.

    Advice to Management

    In Canada high stress on the job is not popular. Try to find a balance that you can preserve the emotional and mental health of your employees and maintain a high yield. Remember your workers are your highest capital. Your an health insurance company, offer the best insurance to your employees that can't be accessed from working for other companies and a higher quality of employees will be accessible and it will lower your turnover rate.
