Work/Life Balance is challenging
IT Audit Manager (Former Employee) – Telecommuter – April 21, 2016
UHG is a Fortune 14 company that strives to be one of the best. I appreciate job security by keeping departments small, but I also find it difficult to deal with the challenge of taking PTO during the summer. While the company has great benefits, it's not work the effort to use the benefits (i.e. PTO) when you work 60 hours before and 60 hours after taking PTO. The employee stock purchase is a nice added perk and the culture is very positive. Again, the amount of work is unbearable at times so every meeting you can expect to start late because people are constantly booked in meetings all day.
I have had some excellent management who is very flexible. As a telecommuter, I enjoy a lot of perks I would not have in the office. The company is big on volunteering which make it nice to get out once in a while. Again, you pay for it on the back side of enjoying the time off because of the amount of work. Aside from the lack of people to do the work, I am extremely happy with this company. It makes it a very hard company to leave, but in the near future I will be considering a new position outside.
