    Work Life Balance

    Associate Engineering Manager (Current Employee) Gurgaon, Haryana

    ProsGreat company for developers & Tester. Good work life balance.

    ConsNot a good company for middle management. Responsibilities are not mathcing with role. Most of the decesions are taken at onshore, leads & manager just need to do resource management

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more tranparent for vision

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    By Name it is "OPTUM" but don't be optimistic if you are a hard core developer and not very good with buttering your mgr

    Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)

    ProsWork/Life balance
    Cool Life
    Good allowances for those who are in support :P
    Cab Facility is the one best(only) facility.
    outings and activities.
    Very few efficient managers (should be lucky enough to work with them).

    Consfirst and foremost, Variable amount in the package(whenever you get the offer letter from UHG don't go with the CTC but check take home on monthly basis(Sure you will be shocked ) variable amount is paid on yearly basis.

    Very Bad infrastructure(no Parking facility, no proper sitting facility), Quite common to see ppl running in search of cubicles.

    They spend some lakhs of amount for converting a tester to a developer by providing external training, Many even don't understand Why

    (if someone can really good at buttering the Manager then this is the best company to reach heights in your career)

    I felt strongly myself "This company is not for me or for those who completes the work and leave but it is for those ppl who wants to lead a cool life without much work", There might not be much growth professionally, This is not only my personal experience but also I have seen many of my seniors.

    Finally, NOTICE PERIOD of 3 MONTHS and no buy out option(you will have this option in the documents, But will never work in real life), However when they are recruiting a new employee they will buyout his notice period. VERY FUNNY :)

    Advice to Senior ManagementNothing from my side, If they go through the review comments from its employees that should be more than enough.

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Worst place to be at!!

    Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) Gurgaon, Haryana

    Pros- Sometimes work from home is available
    - ample leaves available
    - good overall pay package on papers
    - extra money in support projects
    - majorly free time at work since they don't have much work offshore
    - work life balance
    - some projects get broadband reimbursements
    - best place if you are TT player.
    - great cab facility ( best thing about working here)

    ConsThere are two kinds of people: one who are hardworking and ambitious. And the others who just want to lay back and get their salaries at the end of the month. This place is *only* for the second type.
    If you are a good performer(type 1) all you get here is disappointments. You're up for surprises here if you want promotions and good quality work.
    This place can leave you at roads with no ends after 5 years of work here.
    The HR doesn't have any idea how to engage people. Completely clueless management. Just want the work done...by hook or crook. Burn your weekends or midnight candles. Get their work done anyhow so that the onshore remains happy!

    Otherwise the management is so laid back and relaxed and uninterested that u loose interest and enthusiasm to work and learn. Trust me, after you spend 5 years here...you wud fear going out for interviews unless you are lucky and get some good work anyhow.
    Nobody knows anything about business. They have a complex software system here and not many know about it. You are on your own!

    This is a heaven for the second kind of people! Although exceptions are there. Those exceptions who are grilled.
    Also,
    - extra official working hours ( that makes up for bit extra package)
    - undue favors to some special people
    - the growth aspects are weak. Internal job postings are fixed and pre-assigned.
    - your extra activities are a base for your promotions and not work (majorly)
    - 3 Months notice period
    - NO onsite for development projects.
    - Total mess at times.
    - no payouts at all for weekend support tasks from office for dev projects.
    - no bench strength.
    - highly monotonous work
    - no exposure to any new tech
    - worst training facility
    - worst and mismanaged gym.
    - work delegation is a norm here. Total politics!

    If u still want to work here...be sure to negotiate with the HR at the time of joining. Because once you get in, you are doomed for growth and learning and exposure!

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmployee development and growth concerns should be a priority.
    Get to work!

    Average
