    Pros

    Work from home opportunities, decent pay, great tuition reimbursement, lots of training and CEU offerings

    Cons

    No retention plan for employees who obtain higher credentials. Poor communication between lower to mid management and staff.
    If you can figure out how to become a member of the "Good ole Nurse Club" GREAT! Other wise, I do not recommend a nursing position within Optum's Kidney Resource Services until you have completed your education and/or don't plan on advancing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't wait until it's time to do an annual review before you drop the bomb on your employees about the new metrics that have been in place for the last 6 months.
    Don't promise employees a position/promotion that you don't plan to follow through on.
    Don't tell your staff "We encourage you to use your tuition reimbursement and to further your education because we have a place for you here." Especially when you don't mean it.
    Offer better coverage and lower the cost of the health insurance benefits for your employees...because you are the insurance company, you made a huge profit last year, and you can.

    Pros

    I am a telecommuter that has been the only benefit in my position. They offer a wealth of employee centered programs.

    Cons

    I have been in the same position for over 6 years, with no employee development opportunities or employee advancement. I have been very ambitious and express my desires to all my managers which has a high turnover rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within, experience and dedication should carry employee who may lack the education a long way within the company. Allow employee to shadow and explore other facets of the company.
