I worked at CareMedic full-time (More than a year)
Great benefits including the traditional insurance and PTO, plus 401k matching and stock purchase option. Fantastic colleagues/peers who self-initiated teamwork. Incredible flexibility with little to no micro-management.
Optum purchased this small company and pretty much forgot about it. There was very little product enhancement, investment in employees, and a non-existent marketing budget for this tiny division of a giant company. Similar products were sold through another division of the same company, creating channel conflict. Management was directionless for this division. No marketing budget, outdated technology, and pricing that was no longer competitive created significant challenges. HR was self-service,aka, a total time-suck and impossible to navigate.
Advice to Management
Invest in your products or sunset them, but don't let them die a slow and painful death on the vine.
