Answered by UnitedHealth Group

You love the idea of helping others, but hate the office politics, micro management, and favoritism of it all. It's a stressful environment at times and if you're not careful you will stress yourself sick. I would highly suggest finding some way to motivate yourself outside of your position. What's the point of a decompression room if they don't allow you to use it for your own peace and well-being?

If Job were eliminated due to re-organization. I would make sure that the employees are placed in open positions. Especially when those laid off were there for over 10 years.

I have been at UHC for several months. Managements expectations...unrealistic. The learning curve...12-18 months. When I was honest with my director about what was lacking and what I have not been instructed on I was told to ask, however i have no idea what to ask if you don’t know a process. Can not bring any concerns to management if I feel that there are issues with my direct supervisor, I was told that I should not speak negatively about my supervisor. I was simply stating that I did not receive instruction on particular aspects of my position. It’s pointless. I am an adult learner with over 40 years of work experience. If you disagree with someone, you are considered to be combative. I am constantly interrupted...pinged...and expected to respond immediately even if participating in an important meeting. I am never permitted to focus on one thing at a time, and I feel that I have approximately 1/3 of my supervisors attention, making her not present in any moment, but rather responding emailing and pinging other individuals making me realize that she has conflicting priorities and I or the other individual is not a priority at the moment. I also lose my train of thought when constantly continually interrupted.
