    Pros

    I enjoy me job and actually look forward to my work, which is a stretch from my last job. Working from home and not directly dealing with customers is amazing.

    Cons

    Still a bit of disorganization, gives the feel of a start up company still working out the kinks.

    Unethical bullies

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Remote work for processors is good Try to maintain the appearance of being inclusive to BIPOC and LGBTQIA communities Snacks and employee events at hub (before pandemic)

    Cons

    Pay is extremely low compared to others in industry Training is horrible so everyone is processing insurance claims incorrectly Benefits aren't great Nepotism-- managers hiring proteges from previous companies who are rude and don't know how to manage Mandatory OT once a month (100+ work hours in 2 weeks) Bad blood between all departments 90% of the company and leads have horrible attitudes and are super rude They exploit workers who fo above and beyond, then pass them over for raises beyond "meets expectations" and promotions They claim they're a tech company when all of the programs are constantly breaking Whole departments have walked out and quit Zero accountability for managers who act inappropriately (including sexual advances) They constantly say "this isn't going to be fixed overnight" when these problems have been here for years High turnover rate for managers and leads, partially due to hiring college graduates with 0 work experience in leadership roles If you're not best buddies with leadership, you get treated extremely differently It's nearly impossible to get answers to questions or help Being a high performer doesn't matter when other people barely do any work and have worked there for a long time with no consequences, and it's not a guarantee you won't get "meets expectations" Apparent favoritism, if not sexism, for men, even with many women in leadership roles-- the men in leadership will give me under them advantages, higher raises for less work, while the women in leadership won't give anyone any opportunities and will just default to the chosen men

    Great benefits and learning experience but an array of inefficiencies

    Jul 19, 2022 - Customer Service Associate in Tempe, AZ
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Benefits PTO Culture Certain leadership Growth opportunity Hour flexibility

    Cons

    Wages - below the average and tiny raises for roles with heavy responsibilities. Lack of collaboration among departments. Can’t seem to come together to fix issues. Constantly putting out fires only to start new ones. Lack of training on things that are complicated. Constantly making decisions behind the scenes and not launching or communicating properly. Not addressing issues for years and years - issues that are not considered as urgent and as a result they don’t get addressed. The number of executives keeps growing while - comprised of people that don’t know health insurance. Tech company with a number of tech issues and inaccurate customer facing information. Lack of transparency. Everything takes forever to address and when addressed it’s not properly communicated. Network inconsistencies

    Company with Great Ambition

    May 29, 2022 - Associate Operations Manager 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great benefits package Decent compensation for some markets Ambitious Great coworkers Mostly great managers

    Cons

    Compensation for larger cities is median (Arizona is paid the same as Ohio, Tennessee, etc despite COL differences) Way too political for the workplace. Allows employees that are share the C Suites predominate political stance to effectively mute someone with a differing opinion or belief. Also gives the impression that if you don’t agree with everything you shouldn’t speak up. Doesn’t account for families that are not traditional 2 parent households and puts hardships on single parents for childcare costs effectively making a single parent pay thousands for childcare so they’re not the sole caregiver which is especially costly for the lower tiered employees but 2 parent households can bypass childcare as their not the sole caregivers.

    Overall Good place to work, if you have a good manager

    Jul 29, 2022 - Operations Lead 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    good benefits, stability, there was ample room for advancement that I took advantage of

    Cons

    bad direct managers. Not enough oversight of manager quality for mid-level employees. If you can focus on the company mission and vision and not let your crappy manager get to you, this is a great place to work.

    Interesting concept, poorly executed

    Apr 7, 2022 - Senior Manager 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Comp is okay and people are generally nice (though management can be really difficult)

    Cons

    There are kind, smart, and passionate people working at Oscar - many of them have the goal of changing healthcare. I also had this goal. Within a few weeks of starting it became clear, Oscar is just a normal health insurance company. Don’t be drawn in by messaging. The difference is: Oscar markets itself as a tech company in the health insurance space that is trying to improve the experience and lower costs - as a result the company invests in hiring a lot of tech people as opposed to people with insurance backgrounds. Insurance people are needed for an insurance company to function. As a result, it is very difficult to run an insurance company. People rely on Oscar to care for their health but the attrition is massive, everyone is overworked, and there is a lack of clarity from management about what priorities are. Also while my comp is fine, MANY employees are being massively underpaid but are scared to speak up. This results in additional attrition.
