    Pros

    So cliché but the culture at UHG is just amazing. You can see it all around you everyday being lived, it's not just words on a poster on the wall. Company has regular social/charity events to get employees building relationships, interacting, and giving back by holding charity events. It really starts from the top down, the senior leadership team really believe in upholding our values and making this company a great place to work - they really believe in their employees. I have always felt supported in my role, always felt like I have someone to go to if I need help and advice. Manager is very flexible with working hours, if I need to work at home due to family reasons it's understood.

    Cons

    Being part of a huge global company, sometimes it can be tricky working with colleagues and teams in other time zones. Sometimes there can be a feeling of disconnect from other global sites because of this, communication can sometimes be hard
