Is it just me or do others also have more and more trouble meeting the deadlines? I’m still somehow succeeding at it, but it’s becoming a growing challenge for me. Deadlines are becoming unrealistic because Anthem obviously wants to squeeze people... — read more
The financial focus is on buying other companies, stock/ dividend increases, and executive pay, not compensating lower level employees. If you are just starting out in your career, the only way to increase your pay at or more than the rising cost of... — read more
Anywhere I've applied I've only gotten bad offers that don't come close to what I make here. I know my worth and I'm not willing to settle for something less, so I'll keep looking. Staying here, however, is destroying my mental health, so I really... — read more
If you think hard work will not save your job if you think you will not progress despite doing your best?
I tried, I really did try but there is only so much one person can be expected to do - especially for what they were paying me. I see a lot of people complaining about older employees leaving but I can tell you from personal experience that those of... — read more
You will literally need to secretly outsource your own work load because Anthem expects you to do the work of 10 bodies!
No matter how hard you work and the amount of knowledge you have, you are not safe at Anthem. The company will have no problems laying you off if they can find somebody who'd be willing to do your job for less money. The new hire doesn't know as much... — read more
I left Anthem because my new job offered me double the salary I was making at Anthem. The only way you will ever make six figures is to leave and work for a smaller company. A smaller company typically pays a lot more. The only way you will make six... — read more
CVS seems to pay more than Anthem bc they offer more unique positions and don't make you become a manager in order to make the big bucks. Just an observation I notice. Anthem is all about manager hierarchy and nothing else.
Look for jobs outside of our industry, apply for jobs you think you have no chance of getting, just put yourself out there. I see so many folks who are unhappy here but are too scared to leave for whatever reason. Even if none of that works (which I... — read more
Seems to be the first list coming out by Jan 6th! As usual the hard working people are unlucky again!
Has there been any news on first quarter cuts?
Is Anthem still on the warpath to cut its way to profitability? I am one of the victims of that war, I was laid off a year ago. I'm not complaining, though, it was the best thing that could have happened to me. I was too much of a coward to quit... — read more
If you are afraid to leave Anthem because you think you have security regarding pay, you are are worth more than what Anthem pays you. I was making close to 75K in my last year at Anthem. I got contacted by a recruiter during that time and offered me... — read more
Apparently digital/technoloy/info sec have had HR re-evluate MRP. A select few, as I understand it, got an increase - I have not heard of reductions in salary. Story is the folks that get an increase/boost are not to have that hold against them... — read more
Is there going to be any reorg or Antthem layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
Once upon a time, in a good employer realm, one had to pick others - peers, customers, other mgmt folks for reviews that were applied to one's annual review (at one time called 360s, perhaps I am showing my longevity). As of yesterday, 11/9/2021, I... — read more
https://www.bizjournals.com/twincities/news/2017/11/06/ex-unitedhealth-exec-gail-boudreaux-named-anthem.html I’m reminded of the phrase “Are you better off now than you were 4 years ago?” I’d have to say for a lot of us, the answer is a resounding... — read more
Since they aren't a real company- just a patchwork of vendors. It teaches you a valuable lesson that you shouldn't try to find fulfillment from a job or company no matter how well run or not the company is. You should find it outside.
I've decided that I will not work any more than I do now. And I'm already doing work for several people. If they still think they will achieve something by intimidating people that they have to do an unrealistic amount of work in order not to be... — read more
Does anyone know if you quit anthem in the middle of the year whether or not you get a prorated raise...or do you just lose it completely?
Last year, 4 Anthem Vice Presidents made over $5 million, and the President and CEO Gail Boudreaux made over $17 million. In the meantime, the median Anthem employee wages have declined the last two years by over $10,000: 2017: $70,867 2018:... — read more
Almost all my colleagues are looking for a way to the exit. Some people openly talk about how many applications they have sent. The atmosphere is such that it looks like everyone is leaving. Not because of vaccination but because people don’t... — read more
I have prioritized looking for a new job because I know that I will not be able to continue to work at this pace much longer. I’m too tired because the amount of work that I'm doing should not be done by just one person. If I compare last year and... — read more
Here for the most part, everyone already thinks that the most important thing is to be among the managers favorites. In that sense Anthem is not much different from other companies I’ve worked for, but it's amazing to me how many people are able to... — read more
I am pro vax but anti mandate. If there is a mandate, there will be a mass exodus all at once and it will have major impact to basic operations of this company. I have spoken to multiple colleagues who are planning to leave if they don’t allow... — read more
To those who feel that injecting something into your body is a personal decision, not to be sanctioned by one's employer: stand strong To those who wish to take this injection on your own time, not under threat of income/job loss: stand strong To... — read more
Working at Anthem has taken its toll on me. Lay-off half the team and the rest are left to pick up the pieces with the same performance expectations as before. You do the work of 2-3 people and yet your pay grade has nothing to show for it. Even if... — read more
I am questioning the Ethics reporting process. I made a report and getting follow up is becoming extremely difficult. What about the Ethics Survey? Does Anthem EVER take action? Many associates have experienced racism and a manager very clearly made... — read more
Has anyone seen any movement towards terming staff who are not vaccinated?
My calendar has a Quarterly All-Associate Town Hall meeting scheduled for today. Nothing but dead air.
https://theintercept.com/2021/10/17/john-deere-strike-labor-market/ Anthem needs us, we don't need them!
It’s in my best interest to improve my job performance, but that seems like a mission impossible. How to improve job performance when you have more and more work to do almost every day? The quality of work is inevitably deteriorating.
Imagine ignoring natural immunity and mandating a vaccine that puts your employees with prior infection at risk and for no reason. An antibody test confirms protection. It is negligent not to offer that as an alternative. You talk the talk; it’s... — read more
Anthem, United among major insurers behind on payments to hospitals - https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/health/2021/10/05/anthem-united-major-insurers-behind-payments-hospitals-covid/5997173001/
Wonder what is behind all this, the unspoken, ominous mystery.
I hear Samir Rao, Chief Operating Officer of Ozy Media, is looking for a new job. Anthem IT leadership should do whatever necessary to recruit him. He has demonstrated the type of skills and ethics that are highly prized in our organization and he... — read more
And yet I'm still too scared to take that final step. I have a feeling I'll be stuck here forever and it'll only be my own fault.
"Thanks for all the service you do for our customers, and our stock options! As each of you die a little inside every day, our pockets get lined just a little bit more! Just know that in 5 years our CEOs and uppers will get to retire while you slave... — read more
