An Insider's view of Optum

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Many companies have a standard 8-hour day, but we don’t. Optum is a global company, so we recognize that working hours are different for everyone depending on their situation. Optum has implemented flexible working policies that allow employees to work from home in addition to the traditional office setting with virtual tools to support everyone.
