Micromanaging is the speciality for this company. They falsely advertise job descriptions. There is no way you can hire people to Telecommute and don't allow them to actually Telecommute. And then mess up their record with write ups and ridiculous occurence points when they are running late. Well you wouldn't have this problem of people quiting on you if you changed the way you do things. Train the telecommute employees in office and as soon as training is over. Send them home to Telecommute! Stop making excuses and theze ridiculous requirements. It makes no sense!

It is hard to get transferred to other positions, at least when you work in WellMed. It’s all about who you know not what you know.

The pay is poor for LPN’s in the clinic setting. The work is plentiful. You are actually setting the stage to make the higher paid jobs easier

Micromanagement and limited opportunities for advancement. They're so focused on metrics including monitoring down to the minute how much time you're on the phone. But when it's time to promote people, the decisions are based on who is liked, not who is performing well.

I once had a supervisor tell me that there is nothing that she, nor her business manager do to hinder advancement. All she gets is an email from a recruiter that says, “hey, we’re taking this one and that’s that.” I’m not sure how true that is. This is the ONLY company I’ve had multiple hiring manager interviews with, only to be turned down EVERY SINGLE TIME. In one instance, my manager asked who the hiring manager was that interviewed me and the following week, I’m told by the hiring manger who liked me, that they'd gone with another candidate. The following day, my boss asks me how I’m doing! I’m a top producer, rated above average, I’ve been selected to have others shadow me multiple times...if I were to leave UHG, it would definitely be because of lack of opportunity to grow in areas requested, lack of advancement because of efforts orchestrated behind the scenes, and up until this point no one is holding those with influence accountable. If those who are wishing to advance have filled the necessary requirements, meet the requirements of the position and even the preferred requirements—-then advancement should not be hindered by anyone at any level.
