    I have been working at Oscar Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have SO many.

    -programs for everything! (basketball, students, parents, inclusivity, etc)
    -amazing benefits you get day one (life, AD&D, health, vision, dental, and others you can sign up for- even backup care for kids)
    -great atmosphere
    -fun, unique and hardworking people
    -free bagel Thursdays. EVERY THURSDAY
    -random events like poker night, movie knight, karaoke night, and free lunches/drinks all the time
    -free drinks and snacks, even cereals and juices
    -WE GOT A SELTZER MACHINE... WITH FLAVORS
    -Iced coffee. On Tap.
    -hot coffee made through all day every day
    -staggered shifts
    -awesome bosses that work with your life, whatever the circumstances
    -amazing pto, sick time, Holiday pay (if you work some Holidays, its x2 pay!) and so on. There is even paternal leave! Who else does that?
    -hide away comfort areas
    -a game room (so many things in here, even a ps4)
    -the pay. Lets be honest, Oscar KNOWS how to do right by their people. They take care of us and make sure we are happy in our outside lives and here. I love working here, and I actually mean this.

    Cons

    -not many
    -there is still construction going on- but that's because we are getting a new second kitchen and stuff - so this isn't even a con :)

    I have been working at Oscar Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Great leadership, amazing CEO
    - Office amenities are amazing. Full game room with ping pong, pool, video games, music. Snacks like chips and fruit are provided along with drinks like Vitamin Water, kombucha tea, and cold brew coffee. Lunches and bagels are sporadically provided as well. The building is clean and has a great start up feel to it.
    - Exposure to leadership and health of the company. There are weekly "All Hands" meetings where the CEO addresses the company about various topics. Great look into how the company is doing.
    - Great team building activities
    - Company is very passionate about changing health care and it shows.
    - Company truly embraces diversity and celebrates culture.

    Cons

    - Communication from leadership and even between NY and Tempe office could be better. A lot gets lost in translation from the top to the bottom and by the time the message reaches the masses, the message might be lost or not effectively communicated. This can lead to some confusion and different information being told to different teams.

    Pros

    Oscar is a mission driven organization committed to disrupting healthcare. The company has strong leadership and talent at all levels focused on pushing the company to constantly be better for the members we serve. The work is fast-paced and challenging, but rooted in a desire to create an exceptional experience for our members. If you are looking to join an organization where you can expand your skills, be supported in your development and come to work knowing each day you will make a difference then Oscar is the place for you.

    Cons

    The company is growing and maturing rapidly and therefore is prone to change and growing pains. If you are an individual adverse to change, this might not be the right fit for you. But, if you like a challenge and are willing to stretch yourself you will find the work at Oscar very rewarding.
