Optum fix or contains variable ?
And what js your year of experience?

like

Optum had 15 , 20 and 25% variable on fixed at different grade/level and we get that to the last rupee. if you are great performer you get 120% variable percentage … if you are good 90 to 100 of your variable % and if you are bad it can be ~ 80 % of your variable percentage and if you are worse performer than maybe 60% …

Optum pays those bonus very judiciously and other than this they also have budget for monetary awards where a employee can get somewhere from 0 to 1 lakh in year !!

There are people who never get it and there are people who have been getting these awards every quarter … this is performance based on projects or great work that someone noticed on leadership or client side ..

All the best !

Hey folks. 3 YOE, working in tech at a great company, and making 135K TC in Austin.

Have an admit at Columbia and received 30K in aid each year, so I anticipate paying 110K in tuition. With cost of living in upper Manhattan, estimating an additional 35K each year, so 180K total cost.

I want to stay in tech post MBA, but explore faang companies and product roles. Is this worth the cost? I figure I could make a jump in comp at least?
