"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."

"I worked for Optum for nearly 10 years and have left and come back to the team I was in previously. They are a strong company that believe in relationships, innovation, performance, quality, and the leadership equally. There are a lot of opportunities for training and taking on new challenges. I have met a lot of good people working at Optum and formed life-long relationships. Their weak points are having people take on too much work and lay-offs just before holidays/bonuses so do keep that in mind. If you are young and have a lot of energy and time you will be a great fit!"

"My compensation here has been acceptable, but I've found the work mind numbing and repetitive. Also, the whole UHG/Optum business entity has grown beyond its ability to be managed and needs to be broken up for anti-trust issues."

"I've worked for Optum Healthcare for 5+ years. Many of the individuals in higher level positions are generally business folks with very little experience with software development. What I have seen, quite often, is managers who aren't willing to listen to reality and do not appear to be under any stress to make money but are more interested in improving their own circumstance rather than that of their department."

Project Manager

"I have worked for DaVita Medical Group now Optum, for a year now. The people I work with are great fun passionate teammates. The leadership, however, is lacking leadership skills with little to no compassion and a heavy focus on 'slave-driving' employees until they burn out. Politics and arrow minded thinking prevent others from ideas to express themselves and grow. The opportunity to modernize old broken processes is a nonstarter."

"I worked for Optum as a contractor for more than 6 months. This is a healthcare group which helps the companies to process overpayments and takes the share for the same. My team is a 11 members team and very friendly. I have good relation ships with all my co workers"
