    Pros

    There are not any except a paycheck.

    Cons

    Training is considered sitting with someone and watching them do their job with no explanation, no computer training, no client training, for your first two weeks. Then they throw you into "live" work expecting you to do it and correctly. No one around to help just do it. When and If you do get trained you will learn the computer systems by Webinar, who does that?? You can't learn from watching someone click through a computer...no hands on training.

    Then when you do make a mistake or overlook something because you have had no training you are treated like you are stupid! My supervisor was illiterate, couldn't even write an email using proper tense or when to use plural or singular. She spoke english the same way she wrote it, poorly! How does someone like that get promoted in the first place?

    After 3 weeks I still did not have a badge to get into the department. There is no one in the building
    to help, everyone is scattered throughout the US, my manager was up north. You communicate on email and IM's. No phone calls even.

    The medical and dental benefits were worse than what the 'average' is for most companies, and this is United Healthcare...

    Do not work here....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start promoting people who are qualified not because of Affirmative Action!!!

    Pros

    Everyone is a VP. The really 'big' VPs are nowhere to be found - on their decks in warm States making phone calls looking for business.

    Cons

    High level of testosterone. Everybody in leadership is a rainmaker, or wantabee rainmaker. They rely on staff who have 'been there and got the teeshirts.' The leadership all traded in their Accenture, Deloitte, Bain starter jobs after ten years for Optum. Leadership is all about sell, sell, sell. Very poor management skills. The onboarding is overwhelming...the lack of integrated systems is eye popping!! The OpenAir timecard system is right out of the 90's.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sort out the VP rank and file and make the title mean something, and make sure they have leadership and management skills. Get some state of the art IT leadership before it's too late.
