Company culture

Culture is great for the most part, but senior and executive leadership don't practice what they preach.

Overall Compensation for your work

I was laid off and received multiple offers to do similar work at a higher starting pay (compared to what I was making after 2 merit increases). That tells me that UHC pays lower than it's competitors, at least for internal promotions.

Job security

Financial Stewardship is the current buzzword. It is hitting several functional areas and 100s (if not 1000s) were laid off in 2017. But they are doing a small number each month, which allows the company to stay under the radar.

Level of Autonomy

Literally everything you do is monitored and you are tethered to a phone most days.
