More consolidation in the sector means fewer jobs. Looks like several mergers or takeovers coming...which means...
We are told that when a company notifies you of a layoff, they are suppose to give you 60 days written notice and other disclosures. Does anyone have the complete list of things the company is supposed to do?
Record revenue and IT projects being canceled. Here come the layoffs!!!!
What is the likelihood of UnitedHealth layoffs in Minneapolis in 2016? Please let me know if you have any information.
Do you expect that there will be employee layoffs at Catamaran? OptumRx is looking to grow the combined businesses beyond what either company could accomplish on its own, which we believe will offer new and exciting opportunities to employees of the... read more
I love working for UHC Optum. I am a RN TCM in florida since August 2014. It is a great company to work for, good benefits, great management support. Business changes and products change it has been a positive journey so far.
At least 15 to 20 people in my company at UHC in Henderson were laid off with no warning..... some of them even had 18 years with the company... how's that for loyalty....the morale was so bad in that office I'm actually glad to be out of there... we... read more
I am one of those who is contemplating joining UHG but after knowing them and reading these threads, perhaps it is wise to reconsider moving on to a far more stable organization than becoming a statistic as a cast off later on with these... read more
UnitedHealth Group is one of the best diversified health care companies in the US. However, even so the company has a bad reputation for layoffs. Since the beginning of the 2000s, the company has achieved huge success, but has repeatedly taken... read more
Our approach to managing the company's management resources is silent lay-offs every 6 months or so, no specific reasons are needed, I think they just want to cut payroll costs. Your performance can be exceptional, you can be an outstanding performer... read more
Sad, a few hard working people were let go.
Cannot get this company to respond to requests for services. Finding a doctor to even accept this company was difficult. Waiting on approval from United Health Care to get a CT scan. Have been waiting for over a week now and my health problem is a... read more
They let you go in 10 mins after working for 12+years of dedication, sincerity and improving processes/procedures. The management requested us to stay when they need with all kinds of false promises, to the extent openly saying in All hands meeting... read more
Who can comment?
Do you think that PM and BA jobs will be sent to India too?
They are talking about massive layoffs in my department too. They said that tenure would work in our favor but from what I have heard from other people who were laid off, this means nothing, or even works against you. We're all just taking it day by... read more
I'd been at UHC for just under 25 years. Then yesterday, "Your position has been eliminated. Good luck!!" I'd been proud of the progress I'd been allowed to make and even of my salary. I agree with a previous post, there is no rhyme or reason for the... read more
It's sad, we are treated with so much disrespect by United - Pharmacists deserve better even in layoffs.
Any connection? What do you think, is it going to be better or worse - Sometimes I think that all I want is to survive 2014 and that layoffs will be behind us and that Unitedhealth will be a great company again.
yet, they do not do anything. we are forced to let people go and we make the money - go figure - UnitedHealth has it's own ways
The culture of fear. Horrible place to work. I will be leaving soon.
Optum used to be a great company. In the last year, it has been a terrible place to work. This once innovative company is filling with middle managers who are puppets with no creativity. There is a culture of fear and very low trust among employees... read more
The layoffs are showed towards older, more experienced persons who are higher paid. From my own observations, none that I know were poor performers. Several departments have been increasing staff sizes in their Indian offices. A colleague was told to... read more
I heard that the number is much close to 50. This is a huge cut nonetheless, many good folks were let go.
OptumRx, a branch of united health, announced the lay-offs of 29 Pharmacist's yesterday including at least one who is currently on maternity leave. Ruthless.
this is crazy, layoffs at this company are constant, you cannot have a single month that somebody somewhere is not laying people off at unitedhealth. good luck to all of us.
It's coming, reorg is coming, redundancies are coming, do not be fooled this time around UHG will cut you if they can save money doing it
UnitedHealth Group is a well managed company, do not get me wrong, I am no trying to be sarcastic as we are dealing with a number of issues on the operational side. From the finance perspective UnitedHealth manages our money really well and I like... read more
We cut thousands of MDs working on the Medicare Advantage plan - United HC is merciless, it's all about the bottom line and very little regard for patients and society as a whole. Sometimes I am ashamed I work here.
I heard rumors that we'll be letting people go in 2014 (Q1). We've done this before and this is nothing new to UHC. This helps with numbers, good numbers translate to management bonus increases, the fat cats are happy and the little guy at... read more
layoffs are frequent
Do not come work here - hours are long and pay sucks, there is no mentoring and UnitedHealth will treat you like crap
to reiterate - no massive layoff is planned... yeah, right. with obama's sharks swimming around i would not be surprised if we were to shut down completely. nobody's happy...
