So I started off at Optum as a fresher , and let me tell you I was no good when I had started. My first project and team was really amazing and helpful. I got a chance to work with big-data tech stack. There are a lot of internal developed tools and projects , and if you don't feel good with your project you can switch teams in 1 year. You'll get enough leaves and some health benefits. There are really good internally organized trainings ranging from web-development , mobile-app development , big-data , NLP/machine learning and cyber-security. You'll be able to reach out and interact with healthcare tech - specialists and provide our ideas. You can also get some free azure trainings and certifications if your manager approves. Overall company and policies are great , but focus is on US market and Indians do suffer because of it , late night meetings , deployments and much focus is on work done by US folks rather that Indians.

Dislikes

...r US counterparts. Work is not much , until you reach production timelines . Indian managers can turn out to be bad , as they have control over your cash rewards , annual bonus and quarterly cash rewards. Finally a small note - you will have to always fight for yourself , until you sell yourself , someone else will get promotions and better hikes .
