Featured Review

Current Employee - Product Manager

I have been working at Visiting Nurse Service of New York full-time for less than a year

Pros

Company has amazing vacation policy (30 days), though only 8 holidays. But with 38 days, it is the best PTO policy of my entire career. They also allow for remote work. VNSNY tends to have flexible... schedule, as long as you get the work done. The employee morale is really good and positive for the most part. You can see that employees feel appreciated. The company has multiple activities to make the employees feel taken care of. They offer a huge amount of free training for all levels of employment and it is quality training (unlike other companies I have been at). The company culture is great, with leadership constantly telling employees they are the company's biggest asset. Even just saying that is huge. They have a quarterly employee survey and employees can submit any type of feedback and it is reviewed and considered. Best place of my 20 year career.

Cons

location on the east side of manhattan is a bit of a hassle

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you are doing, showing how much you care about employees, offering flu shots, providing ways to engage, surveys, accessibility to leadership

Current Employee - Software Engineer

I have been working at Oscar Health full-time for less than a year

Pros

There are tons of things that make working at Oscar great as a Software Engineer, but I'll try to give my main points. - Everyone is so nice and easy to work with. It must just be because the... company is so small, but I've only had pleasant interactions with other people on my and other teams. People are so quick to help that it just startles me compared to other places I've worked. This extends to social issues too - everyone I've talked to is very liberal, especially on LGBT issues (and obviously healthcare). This makes it really easy to "be yourself at work," which a lot of companies claim is what happens, but I really believe it's actualized here. - Everyone seems more or less excited about the product we're building. It's legitimately cool that Oscar is working on refactoring healthcare, and everyone I talk to is legitimately impressed by our app, and the fact that we process claims in-house. And besides the tech behind it, the idea of a low cost health insurance plan has great social implications to making sure that Americans can afford healthcare - and people at the company seem very driven by this mission. Not to say that it's culty like the stereotype of other startups - people are extremely quick to ask the hard questions to upper management, and have pretty reasonable expectations of what Oscar is. - The tech stack is very clean - people care very much about code quality, and making sure everything in the infrastructure is solid and clean as well. All the internal and external apps are held to high standards, both in terms of code quality and design standards. There's also a big culture of writing out internal posts to share tech information to better the whole company. - Management is especially extremely easy to work with. I've had some not-great managers, but the ones I've worked with at Oscar are amazing. They will listen to you, trust your judgement, not over-work you, and generally make you feel good about what you do. They'll work with you to make sure you're working on good things for you, and in my experience have made working here easy (as well as keeping my blood pressure down). I feel like I've always been put on the most important projects and issues, and only things that will help my career growth. It helps that managers are expected to be technical, and contribute to the codebase as well as perform people management. There's probably more I'm not thinking of, but I hope this paints a good picture.

Cons

One (minor) issue that comes to mind is the fact that the tech stack is still on Python 2, which is set to die in 2020. It's understandable that moving over is a lot of work, but it has to be... prioritized.

Advice to Management

Keep up the high standard for managers. I know it's hard finding good people, but a bad manager can seriously turn a work life sour, and cause people to resent working at the company.
