Optum Insight vs CVS Health. What’s the better company to join in terms of growth and opportunities? Anticipating similar offer from each (slightly better comp from CVS)

Strongly advise against CVS. Culture and WLB are good but we’re moving in the wrong direction compensation-wise. Offers are lower than they were 5 years ago and equity incentives are decreasing.

^^ can confirm with CVS1

From my previous experience at Optum Insight (4 years ago). It’s a massive business unit and you really can’t make any comments on the opportunity with just that information. Such a large variance

like

For Optum Insight the role is with their Strategy & Growth practice mostly focused on the provider sector. Pros seem like good exposure to both products and services and ability to access a huge matrix organization. For CVS it’s a retail health strategy role within product and process innovation. The organization is shifting its focus to digital which is a concern for this role, but the organization is a huge player in the space with many talented ex consultants which makes it attractive.

What are levels for both roles? If it’s a GL29/30 role it would be a great role.

So GL is how Optum/UHG levels. 28 is Senior Consultant / 29 is M / 30 is Director / 31 is SD/ 32 is VP. IC - individual contributor

What’s the comp like?

Lot of cross unit collaboration between Optum/UHG. Even if you’re not happy with your role at Optum you can move anywhere within the whole UHG enterprise (UHG/UHC/Optum -Insight/Rx etc/AB) after 12 months. A lot of remote opportunities atm too to my knowledge

Which part of the company are you with? How do you like it?

I know it’s all been said before. I would’ve never expected to be in this kind of situation or that it’d go on for so long. Others have lost far more than I have due to COVID. I’m grateful for my health. But I still feel an insurmountable sense of loss from everything that’s happened. A professional opportunity I worked for years to achieve had finally materialized and then disappeared just as quickly. I feel isolated and hopeless, just trying to survive and one day see an end to the madness.

Non-accounting rant…Our lease is up at the end of April and we recently got our new lease contract. All of a sudden, the leasing company is requiring renter’s insurance. It’s apparently a new requirement for all new and current residents. It’s definitely a good thing to have, but isn’t there some sort of requirement for landlords to communicate big changes to leases in advance and not just stick it on the lease and hope everyone reads it? It seems kinda predatory and sneaky.

Hello! Seeking advice regarding our mortgage company not complying with our FHA Loan Closing Disclosure.Per FHA requirements, homeowners insurance has to be collected through escrow. However they've only been paying property taxes. This extra money that accumulated in escrow won't cover what's owed to insurance because property taxes and insurance went up. Thus leaving us with a large chunk of change that we will have to front. Had this been done correctly in the first place, we wouldn't have cared about up
