    Pros

    Opportunity to work on many and varied projects. Most employees are easy to work with and try to be helpful, they really care about the quality of their work.
    Offers many courses to enhance your knowledge.

    Cons

    Extremely inconsistent, management changes course and leadership about every 3-6 months (in some cases complete opposite direction). People have been promoted to Managment positions without background or knowledge of the division they are leading; bypassing more qualified candidates (tends to follow clique). Senior management does not know how each division, purchased by Optum had created such as successful organization (why each company was purchased in the first place).
    No work/life balance at this company. PTO allotted is nice, but extremely hard to utilize especially toward the end of the year, even if goals have been attained. Lots of stress and morale is very low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Constantly changing direction and focus is confusing to employees, partners, and clients. Leaders need to have background and knowledge of the divisions they lead instead of having their junior employees train them in their job.
    Products are very stale and outdated. Review the employee feedback and make meaningful changes.

    Pros

    Coworkers are pleasant.
    Team members cover each others butts due to management attitudes.

    Cons

    Management team is closed off.
    Money saving to the detriment of employees health.
    Employees are overloaded.
    No reward for going the extra-extra mile, it is expected of everyone with no acknowledgement.
    No compassion, employees terminated when experiencing health problems and family problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, reward hard work, stop getting rid of the people that make the company great.
    Stop replacing experienced people with inexperienced ones so you can pay lower salaries.
