    Pros

    I will preface this review with a statement you need to heed when reading this review as well as any reviews for this company -- "It depends on your area." This is a GIGANTIC company and YMMV depending on your group. Keep that in mind when reading. Anyway, I've been here only 6 months, but I think I have enough of a feel for Optum to write a review. The positives: Great work/life balance: I never have to stay...

          Cons

          No day care offerings, production expectations can be stressful. I no longer work in UHC, where everything is about number of widgets per hour, but I know that there is a big brother feeling there and a no tolerance policy for working extra time (some people have been working mandatory overtime for YEARS). Happines on the job is heavily dependent on who you report to, unfortunately. There are people in management...

          Advice to Management

          Look more closely at the people managing others. Take a look at the Vital Signs results, look at the number of people leaving teams and figure out why. There are some really valuable employees who have or will be exiting the company because they can't put up any longer with poor managers.
