Company Culture

The philosophy is there, but the implementation is not always apparent

Teamwork

New projects are always popping up where collaboration is necessary.

Freedom to work independently

While there are many group projects, individual work is an important piece of the department

Internal Communication

Communication links are some of the best available and enable employees to collaborate with others efficiently and effectively

Work-Life Balance

Unlike a public accounting firm, the work-life balance throughout the year is manageable and helps with moral

Challenging Work

As a new tax professional, most of my work is challenging as I work through learning the ins and outs of the department and tax concepts in general

Suggestions for improvement

  • It would be great if UHG was more eco conscious. There is a lot of paper that is wasted.

What I like about the company

I have had great experiences with UHG thus far. I have had many great experiences and have learned an immense amount.

What I dislike about the company

Currently I do not have any concerns with constructive feedback provided by UHG

Company Culture

UHG culture as I knew it didn't extend to this particular branch of the company, from senior leadership down to the lowest level. It was terrible.

Support from management

Senior leadership frequently undermined middle managers

Teamwork

Generally but this was more who we were as leaders than what we were encouraged to do

Freedom to work independently

Senior leadership did not trust middle management and the associates knew it

Internal Communication

Communication was up and down

Gender Equality

Women had a number of leadership roles

Attitude towards older colleagues

Mix of older and younger leaders

Career Development

They tout the many opportunities but it is difficult to transition to a new role

Overall compensation for your work

Leadership compensation was uneven, not based on experience or credentials

Office / Work Environment

Cubicles were small. Building had mold issues

Work-Life Balance

Was able to take off time and work from home as needed, although this business unit did not have telecommute option

Job Security

90% of our business unit was let go with no notice

Challenging Work

Very challenging requiring many extended days

Inclusive / Diverse

Suffered from fear of tyrannical leaders and groupthink

Suggestions for improvement

  • Trust managers who are closer to the actual work and associates.

What I like about the company

Tremendous, talented co-workers. Opportunity to make a difference in healthcare of Americans and abroad.

What I dislike about the company

Do better job of developing employees to move to new roles after reasonable time in job. Provide better compensation and severance.
