Pros: benefits (for the most part), flexible schedules, good technology.
Cons: corporate mandates that make little sense, deadlines, off-shoring and keeping weaker staff, lack of communication by executives to smaller entities within uhc.
For the most part UHC is a wonderful place to work. Good pay, good benefits (PTO, flex time, etc). The problem that exists there is that as an acquired entity, you will be picked apart and the acquired company's staff will be eliminated. They also send positions off-shore due to cost, but the productivity is low and stateside personnel end up re-doing – more... the work. United Healthcare also talks about promoting "telecommuting" positions, but fail at that aspect in many areas (Finance, Sales/Account Management, IT), yet these seems to be the areas that have the most open positions. They also talk a good game about keeping the staff that they have rather than training someone new off the street - again, they fail at this as well. I actually trained a person for 6 months in a role similar to mine and because he was local to headquarters, his position was safe, but mine was eliminated. This speaks volumes about how experience is not held in high esteem, but overloading a lesser paid employee is ok. – less
