    I worked at Universal American full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very businesslike and professional on most levels. Commonsense travel policies made it easy for those of us who traveled frequently.

    Cons

    Company made an unexpectedly bad buy, and things went from great to bad very quickly. The company sold its subsidiary and then sold itself.

    Advice to Management

    I appreciate the opportunities I had at UAM and wished it could have worked out better.

    Pros

    The manager I had was an awesome manager. She was very understanding and down to earth.

    Cons

    Upper management likes to micromanage. They treat employees like they are children. Not sure if they have new HR people since Universal American has been sold, but the HR team that was there in July 2015 was very unprofessional to say the least.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging people. Health insurance benefits need to be better

    I have been working at Universal American full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    My Executive Director has been exceptional to work for, and I have intentionally made choices that would allow me to continue reporting to her. The overall organization seems well-balanced in terms of gender equality in executive roles. The organization strives to take good care of their employees while simultaneously meeting corporate goals, initiatives, and measures.

    Cons

    As a remote employee, I haven't gotten to take part in many office-typical employee engagement activities, but that is likely a by-product of telecommuting in general and not necessarily specific to Universal American.

    Advice to Management

    NA

    I worked at Universal American full-time

    Pros

    Worked remotely, so I could work on weekends and evenings. The pay was great and so was work/life balance.

    Cons

    Communication was terrible. The manager who I worked for was volatile and constantly changed priorities, direction and message. My team was very disconnected and we spent a lot of our time covering our butts. We were also fearful of the manager's frequent outbursts, so we didn't speak too often in meetings.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job vetting your leadership.

    Pros

    If you want to roll-up your sleeves and get things done, this is the place to be! Good ideals welcome. Energy and enthusiasm are the drivers.

    Cons

    More career paths needed to grow your career. A flat organization will get you depth in your career but little space for advancement.

    Maintaining the ACO goals was not achieved.
