I have worked at UHG for a number of years. Both as a management consultant with an Optum advisory services and on the UHC side in a more of a traditional business role. Considering a move to IBM Watson health as a client executive. Wondering if anyone has had experiences within both companies and can provide any insight to help me make this decision.
