    Pros

    Great place to park while you are looking for the dream job. Does not seem like there is a desire to promote from within. Leadership seems very political.

    Cons

    Not a place that seems to want to keep talented people, more of a churn and burn type of place. After 7 years, just of handfull of people remain.

    Advice to Management

    Don't think offering advice to management would do any good. I think their focus is almost exclusivly on the stock price and not on thier customers or employee.

    Pros

    Premier pharmacy benefit management company - has won multiple awards for customer service and prescription fulfillment capability.
    This division of United Healthcare is large enough to have many areas, departments, teams where a person can develop their careers.
    Pharmacy benefit is a growth market and a still maturing industry. Joining OptumRx team brings a person into a mature organization within a growing industry.

    Cons

    Mentoring is not always available in all areas. Growth comes from a person applying to a new position and pursuing a new salary grade, depending on the team and the management style.

    Advice to Management

    Better career development opportunities should be offered. A mentoring program should be developed for all levels of employees.
    Listen to the experience of the rank and file - do not make decisions in a vacuum.
