Ramping up their security and compliance areas

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 unceremonious yahoos.

Sometimes I think that working for UnitedHealth ruined my life

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 advantage of employee trust and dedication. My story is ... read more

Manager Level Layoffs at UnitedHealth 2015

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 and yet they will cut you randomly when you ... read more

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 critical issue. The doctors office called yesterday ... read more

No place for sincerity and loyalty

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, that there wouldn't be layoffs and he is the one ... read more

massive layoffs

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 day, wondering if we're going to get that call ... read more

Another Layoff at UnitedHealth Group - how many this time?

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 layoffs except for tenure and salary.

Obamacare and UnitedHealth 2014 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.

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. Get out while you can!

Layoffs have occurred

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 train a new hire in India before he was laid ... read more

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.

Medicare Advantage plan Downsizing

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.

UHC layoffs - 2014

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 UnitedHealth is being crushed.
