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.

What projects are you most excited about?

My teams work on Digital Benefits where our mission is to deliver benefit clarity, cost transparency, and guidance towards increasing healthy outcomes for our members! One exciting project that we just finished was the Mental Health Hub, where we worked to spotlight member's mental health benefits offered by their United Healthcare health plans.
