"I love working here. There is an excellent work-life balance. Salaries are above average. My manager is understanding and caring. Flexible work schedule and business casual environment in the office. Tons of fringe benefits. The online training catalog is extensive and comprehensive. Many employees have been here for decades, which speak volumes about the culture. Less stress than other similar positions. Tons of opportunity for growth within the organization. Positive organizational culture and collaborative team environment."

"Unethical and hostile work environment. Think "Mean Girls" in North Korea. Patient care never makes it onto their agenda. Aggressive micromanagement is mismanagement. Physicians not only have HIPPA to uphold but their reputations at well. Why question their integrity above all others? It makes little business sense and drives away remarkable physicians."

"I have worked at Optum for 2 years. Overall it’s a decent company. Your day will always start off stressful because you will be on hold with IT for at least an hour. The computer systems and applications are always going down and computer screens and laptops constantly malfunction. The workplace environment is toxic and micromanaged. Although you are approved to work from home, some directors will make their own rules and tell you to come in just to micromanage you. You will never get a raise higher than 8 cents every year or other year. Some directors are allowed to get away with unethical behavior because HR won’t do anything about it."

"I've worked for Optum for 3 years. Optum has a strong culture in developing internal talents as well as ample opportunities within the company itself. The overall culture is more traditional, which may be a detractor for some considering Optum being a leading technology company."

"Working for OptumCare for over a year as part of the HRIS/Finance/Payroll Division. Love what they strive for, however, the environment is somewhat akin to Office Space within my own department. A lot of work with little substantial reward (no bonus/raises/promotions or discussion of such in reviews), lack of appropriate recognition, lack of significant follow thru for repeated staff concerns, and no clear upward trajectory interior to the department. General feeling; be seen but not heard when it comes to 'inclusion' and efforts rarely amount to something substantially significant."

"I have worked for Optum for a little over 9 months since my move to Tampa, Florida. I really have enjoyed my tenure working at a call center and interacting with customers and resolving their needs within the healthcare field. I find a great deal of satisfaction supporting a project for the VA and particularly to support our US Veterans."
