Didn’t they just acquire advisory board? So they have external consulting now too

I’ve known two people that worked for them both complained about lack of transparency and inability to get staffed on projects.

Internal consulting branch for UHC. Minneapolis office has a lot of ex-Deloitte people

I wasn’t based in MN and did travel to external client sites. But they really moved towards having their LAP BAs and consultants on projects with just some leadership (bc they wanted better margins/more profit). LAP is an internal develop program for new grads (Leadership Acceleration Program). So their staffing model moved to having LAP associates make up 90% of the FTEs. And they are all based out of Minnesota for the most part. Also, the majority of the projects would never get posted and would just be filled by word of mouth.

I use to work at Optum. You really get screwed if you aren’t in Minneapolis. They made it more and more difficult to get staffed (essentially trying to get rid of you), and they did just acquire Advisory board, but like MedSynergies, they will probably just continue working as BAU. Also, Optum did do external consulting as well (had the Healthcare.gov contract) among others.

Do they recruit Deloitte specifically? Any info on culture, opportunity for promotion etc.?

Hmmm good info

D2 were you traveling? Or sitting in MN?

Optim data? Not very reliable

I work for Optum now and everything said so far is right. Unless you’re in MN you’re fucked on every level. Don’t do it OP
