The rumors are true. There are tons of opportunities if you are willing to sacrifice your life and well-being to join the organization. I love my work, it is my passion, but within this organization it seems that isn't as important as just getting the job done.
If you are a forward-thinker who wants to save your company money, improve how business is done whether through efficiency or an overhaul of 'how things are done', then this organization is not for you.
If you are someone who just wants to go into work and do what you're told to do, and put in many hours of (unpaid) overtime, then this is the organization for you.
I get the feeling that UHG is making so much money that flagrant waste is completely acceptable. Even when it's hemorrhaging money, it seems health care is making a lot of people rich.
Last note, for a company that deals in health care their benefits are laughable. I worked for a TINY manufacturing company whose benefits were almost identical. They are some of the worst benefits I've ever seen, though I suppose it's better than no benefits at all...
