A great company to work in with multiple divisions to cross transfer
Care Management Assistant (Current Employee) – Franklin, TN – June 23, 2016
While I haven't worked in multiple areas of UHC or UHG, the one department I have been in is a very tough area to work. The work is demanding and emotionally/mentally taxing. The compensation isn't as competitive as other health insurance companies and their benefits do not compare to other companies either. Certain levels of management are better than others, and while I am not completely satisfied with my level of improvement available to me in my department, I do know from others that the chances are available elsewhere within the company. The ability to transfer within the company is not very easy and takes serious consideration and is time consuming. The glass ceiling is present for all in each area, but it is not impenetrable. The people you work with quickly become experts in their field and are quite knowledgeable of their skills and their requirements. The work load isn't always balanced, but it can be adjusted if you know how to work. It is definitely corporate America type of business. You are not judged on your performance in so much as who you know and how quickly you can network.
Decent health benefits, employee assistance programs, regular hours
Biased work environments, less than up-to-date technology, high turn over rate
