Is Anthem currently having a hiring freeze, or will they be implementing a hiring freeze and when? Thanks in advance, I was apart of a RIF And am currently interviewing for new positions. Any advice suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Topics regarding layoffs at Anthem Inc.
Hey Folks, So, let me ask has anyone been waiting waiting to be Rif'ed but it hasn't happened yet? Well that's me. 38 years at Anthem. I want to retire anyway by EOY, a severance package ahead of time doesnt sound like a bad thing. Has anyone done... — read more
In essence, Anthem has expectations that are impossible to meet. I tried for a long time to meet their expectations, but I don't want to do it anymore. Only the bare minimum. I absolutely think that all the effort and working hard are simply not... — read more
They owe you nothing and you owe them everything you have, please always remember this and give $$$ today - even if you lost your job to them already then donate your unemployment check and go sleep on the sidewalk, THANK YOU :-)
Performance Auditor and Testing positions listed on Lagato careers site. Fyi: Anthem owns this offshore company in India and the Philippines. Take heed there will be layoffs.
This is a company that lets good people go on a regular basis. This is a company that will ask you to move to Atlanta or another location and then lay you off. This is a company that will ask you to work weekends and evening hours and then give you... — read more
Hi I just heard about a RIF in the risk adjustment coding department. Says the RIF was to save money and it was outsourced. Any word on this?
Does anyone know why we cannot delete our chats/conversations on MS Teams? Now that they did away with Skype, we have no choice but to use Teams and it appears that Big Brother is watching! Hum, fuel to fire us? Oh well, we’ll just continue to... — read more
I left this company before the pandemic but I am still in contact with some of my former colleagues who tell me that the situation at Anthem is getting worse. Honestly, at one point I even regretted moving to a new company, since I did not leave it... — read more
Do your job. Do it well and in time. Get paid. Go home. You can go above and beyond and even achieve numerous impact awards and they’ll still lay you off. As stated here multiple times, the “culture” preached by leadership is complete horsesh*t — read more
Watch out for the fine print if you accept whatever this new package is. If what they are offering does involve unemployment as supplemental, that makes sense since Anthem would save money. Due to COVID, the unemployment benefits are more than usual... — read more
Pushing the vaccine are we ? Fill out forms on pulse ? They bill your insurance co. Put your AI into play Anthem if you want to know if people are getting their vaccines. Dont forget about the number you can call to share your experiences. Mercy.. — read more
SVP days are numbered in G&A. Compliance, Legal and Plan Presidents will push her out...........
All these posts are disheartening. Sounds like Anthem has turned into a horribly toxic environment/company I’ve been in the industry 30 years, used to work for the “old WellPoint” prior to the Anthem merger. Had issues, however, nothing like I’m... — read more
How many VPs as well? Money is being wasted on people who are doing nothing when it should be invested to keep the talent that is necessary for this company to function. Sadly, those responsible for running Anthem don't seem to share that opinion... — read more
Per the recent Govt stimulus check, we are supposed to get full subsidy if you were let go from a company. Govt will pick up the cost of COBRA from April to Sept 2021. Have you contacted Anthem for Cobra subsidy ?
Is it happening or not?
Today we have a meeting for voluntary severance options I’ll report back in a couple hours you know a day in anthem is a day of change🙃
If I have learned one thing about Anthem during my five years here it is that this company leaves zero room for out-of-the-box thinking or individual contribution. If you are not doing everything the way it has been done for the last who knows how... — read more
Ok. So has anyone heard any instances of someone being blackballed with Anthem? I’ve been here 8 years. I’ve had nothing but good reviews. I’ve been on 1 team the entire time. I’ve taken 2 sick days in 8 years. I’m reliable. I don’t complain. Anyway... — read more
How does a company get away with laying off so many of their employees that are close to retiring? Want loopholes has legal found to keep this from becoming a lawsuit. Other than sending you a document that shows like ages, positions, salaries and... — read more
Some of us do not take vacations at Anthem because you end up working 60+ hours the prior week and / or 60+ hours the week after just to get the week off, if you don’t end up having to cancel your vacation at the last minute because some deadline is... — read more
Based on all the comments on these threads ... How does this happen?
With all the layoffs/outsourcing, that could be a sign. Just thinking out loud.
Like many others here a lot of us have been financially preparing ourselves in case we are the ones impacted in the next round of layoffs. (Let’s face it. It’ll happen sooner or later). Within the last year I was able to cut down my household... — read more
I’m tired of the uncertainty of when I will see my name on the layoff lists. It’s so exhausting. I understand that there are no safe jobs anywhere, that there are no more companies where you can dedicate yourself to building a career, but Anthem is a... — read more
Time for associate engagement survey....
Anthem is laying off hundreds of excellent workers, to be replaced by offshore or cheaper help. I just found out from somebody no longer with the company that the RIF was originally planned for 2020, but was put aside due to COVID. Optics... I know... — read more
I don't have any new info on layoffs but what I can tell you is that I'm sick and tired of being used like a farmer's mule. I've busted my a** for this company for 20 years. They don't care. They wouldn't bat an eye if I walked tomorrow. I hope they... — read more
How many RIFs were there so far this year? Marketing? Provider? Many great knowledgeable people supporting the company and associates were let go. Relationships destroyed. Years of investing time and knowledge in a company, gone. And for what? So... — read more
We used to be so much better than that. People tried to do their best every single day because that was encouraged and rewarded. Now nobody seems to care if you're doing your best or just putting in your bare minimum. People are rewarded based on... — read more
Anthem is in dire need of being purchased by people that really know what they are doing. People are always at each others throats due to high stress and back stabbing. A supervisor had her 3rd chance to be a manager a couple of years ago and she... — read more
Checking if there is any information on upcoming layoffs.
Is this company even trying to be the best health insurance company around anymore? I agree with someone who said that they totally lost focus, but I wonder if that focus will ever be able to return. It seems to me that Anthem has totally lost their... — read more
The hardest part for me is when I see Anthem finding money to finance all kinds of random nonsense, and on the other hand they make savings by laying off loyal and hard-working employees. Someone here has already mentioned that practice which I don’t... — read more
Working at Anthem has been really challenging lately. With everything that’s been going on around us, the pandemic, the economic downturn, etc. we have an added stress of not knowing if more layoffs are coming or not. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I... — read more
I haven’t been here long enough to see the changes that everyone has been talking about or to see how terrible it’s become. For me, it's always been like this. This is the normal Anthem. The work environment s—s, layoffs happen and it’s not a... — read more
We dont hear much about this these days. Early Mornings. Meetings throughout the day ( so you cant get anything done in 'normal' business hours.) Working late into the evenings, weekends and holidays, problem is its expected from us. Until they get... — read more
