Topics regarding layoffs at Aetna
As a tenured employee of Aetna, who was laid off at the end of 2016 i have to say, myself and my other laid off team members are FAR better off than ever. Financially, work/life balance, opportunity all have improved greatly. Thanks Aetna, I... read more
I know that people are concerned - don’t be - but I heard from someone pretty high up in our corporate office that they planned layoffs but that plan was abandoned, so we are safe here in Hartford.
So, the manager in the meeting said that they will be anticipating "a lot of work next year" and that they will be hiring a "bunch of new people." Haha. What a crock! We all know what that means... its code for let's fire/lay off the employees that... read more
I was a loyal Aetna employee of almost 22 years. Even though I accepted an early retirement package this past January, my job was eliminated. Sent over seas. So was technically forced to take the ERP. You never hear about white collar jobs going over... read more
I am not sure what is the intention of these constant reorganizations Aetna is running, (other than to find new loopholes to lay off more people of course,) but the result is complete disorder, knowledge gaps, and management who cannot make head or... read more
This job is stressful enough as it is on its own, but add to that supervisors who are looking to trip you and each other over any chance they can so they can score some points with upper management, and it becomes unbearable. Not to mention the fact... read more
Rumors are in from the C-Suite powwow. Huge Layoffs are incoming for the commercial business side as the projects are ending for Aetna redeployed staff working on the ACA payouts. ETA July 15.
any new rumors wow really quiet
What's the story with a new location in Mechanicsburg, PA? Showing as a location in job searches but nobody knows anything about a location in that area.
you people there more then 20 years are probably next to be let go. prepay transplant quality area is a joke. need new people there already who know what they were hired to do and not gossip about fellow workers
It's been awfully quiet in here lately. Possibly the calm before the storm?
Humana is blaming aetna for not getting the merger through. An email went out saying humana was misguided and need to get back on track with holistic approach. Some phc have been doing holistic because we were hired to help members...not boost sales... read more
Almost 600+ of my coworkers were let go this Wed over the phone at Humana - we were given a 60 day notice. We know it had something to do with the failed Merger w/ Aetna. This SUX!
Mark doesn't care about his employees. He cares about his bonus.
I wish they would just let us know what is going on. Are we going to be laid off in the first quarter or not? This head game they are playing with everyone is old now. There are red flags all around us that they are slowly getting rid of us and yet... read more
I know that my opinion does not matter much, but I can tell you that our executives are way too greedy and that is putting us all in danger here in Hartford.
Aetna eliminates hundreds of people yet the CEO brags to employees about his home on NYC's Upper West Side and his Ducati. Other executives have six million dollar homes in Greenwich, going sailing on Long Island Sound, or have basketball courts in... read more
Has anyone heard whether or not medicare employees will be affected by these layoffs? A shame we have to fear walking in to the possibility of leaving unemployed everyday.
Is this going to be an option?
What are your thoughts? Any folks on this site considering it?
some do as little as possible but are great at delegating the work to others to do. some do almost nothing all day but talk on the phone and gossip about others. one in particular and she knows who she is. time to stop paying her and need to track... read more
Aetna getting too greedy. has too many hands in the kettle at the same time. wants to own everything. getting too greedy too fast. if not careful they will fall flat on their face and end up losing everything. not happy unless they own everything or... read more
If Aetna is cutting all these people, how is it that they're hiring tons of new folks? I've heard zero word of layoffs at the Columbus location. Only that they're continuing to grow.
Not sure where you are getting your information, but it is completely false!!!! I am an employee and there have been no layoffs for 10 years!! Humana recently laid off people. Perhaps you are confused
Basically, there will probably be more to come, so I don't believe any bs lies these managers/supervisors tell us.
What kind of morons run this company? They know better than to "anticipate" large work volumes, memberships, etc, etc in the ever changing health insurance industry. It's disgusting that their excuse is miscommunication on us. Whatever. It took them... read more
Yes, its true, and it has always been that way. They treat their employees like sh-- and when its time for lay-offs they could care less about them. I think its pretty pathetic that they are "pretending" to care about people in regards to "helping"... read more
Customer Service is downsizing. Aetna did not get the expect individual and small group contracts they anticipated for 2016 year with open enrollment through marketplace; and, as Coventry finalizes there takeover by 2018, those contracts are also not... read more
They just let go of an employee that had been with them for 25 years. The new Aetna has zero loyalty nor compassion for their employees. It goes with out saying you can expect them to have the same horrid treatment towards their customer. All of the... read more
