Great company to work for. Just sorry they closed our office.
Pros: Benefits, salary, culture, everything at your fingertips. just a great company
Cons: This was the second time working for UHG, and many issues that were already extant from NAMM, the company they purchased, and not caused by UHG, really nothing negative to say except I wanted to retire with them, and now have to find another job at the end of the year, which is also the end of many employers' job budgets
Second time working for UHG. First time was great. Lots of benefits, education, references and support. Pay was good too.
Second time I worked for a small company that was purchased by UHG. The corporate culture of United never had time to fully take hold, so I can't really blame them for that experience. Unfortunately, they wanted to renegotiate an already existing contract with better terms with Humana, and no surprise, Humana said no. Office was losing money, but the senior management in place before they purchased us was at fault for that. (See NAMM of IL)
United was transparent in telling us months in advance, offered help with resumes, job searches, etc. Not only that, they also accommodated (within reason) arranging time for interviews. That was a very weird experience because normally you'd be hush-hush about looking for another job, right? It was strange but in a good way. The surprising thing was that as the days grow closer to leaving, it actually improved our camaraderie as we are all in the same boat!
Other companies might have kept it secret until 2 weeks before, so we were grateful for that. We all lost our jobs with the closure, but other than saying that they could have taken the UHG CEO 's $63 million dollar (plus perks/bonuses) salary and kept us employed at least through the end of the year, rather than have everyone laid off right around the holidays - not really much you can do about that.
Nevertheless, I'd work for them again in a heartbeat, and wish they'd had local jobs to absorb us.
The only reason they don't get 5/5 stars is I had to downgrade – more... them on job security. Obviously! – less
