    I have been working at ABCO Advisory Services India full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Decent pay, relaxed dress code and flexible WFH policy

    Cons

    Leadership (most but not all) runs on the mantra that pleasing their US counterparts in Austin is their only duty even at the cost of losing the credibility of their teams and selves. Too much drama, politics and back stabbing. Data oriented decision making is almost non existent. Decisions are made in Austin and executed in Chennai without questions. Anybody who dares to bring data based logic into identifying that these are bad decisions/solutions will be targeted and alienated. If the plan goes bad or fails they will always find a scapegoat in Chennai. The Chennai leadership will not move a muscle to rectify this. As long you dance to these tunes you will grow and flourish. Things will seem fresh and challenging but i assure you that work is super monotonous and you will not develop as an individual. HR has a lot of control over decisions that should otherwise be out of their scope.

    I worked at ABCO Advisory Services India full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I have been with Crimson/ABCO/Optum for almost a decade as both SSE and Lead. I had a great time overall in working for the organisation. Some of the best things about the organisation. Great work life balance Care for an Employee is very high Job Security Chennai top Leadership is great. Constant evaluation and pulse check of employees. Few streams of work is really challenging and motivating. Great colleagues. Less Politics Market standard pay and little more Work location Top notch Facility management Adequate parking facility I have been through a lot of changes in this organisation but the work life balance and employee care is always top notch. I also had a great challenging work with few projects. The pace of decision making is considerably slow, but still the work itself has a lot of challenging. Overall i had a great time out there.

    Cons

    With Optum acquisition the following things i feel are not very supportive and encouraging. Lot of process, even to get any valid software to install, Network rules and policies. Insurance Policy with higher co pay Lesser visibility to key higher decisions and org structure. 90 days notice period Salary structure Few incompetent employees at key decision making positions. Current interview process and people evaluation is pretty poor. The nature of work is mostly reporting and not analytics, both have huge difference. The technology team is currently weak with only few inspiring leaders. Lot of works getting wasted/scraped after years of development due to poor decision making and management decision.
