The new OptumInsights CEO is notorious for cutting expenses and maximizing profits. In other words, expect layoffs as always. Automation always happens everywhere. The potential for automation with Change and Optum is very big. If you're scared, you... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Change Healthcare
The executives love to harp about "social justice" in all of their meetings. They spew out all of the standard politically correct verbiage, like programmed NPCs from video games. Well, one popular area of social justice they won't touch is the call... — read more
Is the point of Change Healthcare to automate everything possible? Should I be worried as a nurse working for Optum that Change with try to bot my job?
Things seem even worse over there than they are here. Just go and look at their forum here. It seems to me like we are simply jumping out of the frying pan into the fire. I could be wrong, but I doubt it. Here's the link:... — read more
No one is safe at this company, least of all those that work hard and try to make a difference. They are about cutting costs, everywhere they can, they do not see workers as people, we are numbers. Pretty much that is how it is in most Corp America... — read more
With the merger happening (or acquisition, let's call it what it is,) we are most certainly looking at major cuts either right before or right after the deal is finalized. And considering that we are the company that's being acquired, chances are... — read more
Sold to Optum. Neil and friends make out with a huge payday, and the rest of us get to look for low-paying jobs during a pandemic and significant economic uncertainty. Truly, this is a testament of what is wrong with self-serving corporate boards... — read more
Does anyone else feel so unappreciated???? My team will give spotlight points to everyone on the team but the people who actually do the work. Favoritism put in your face everyday. Managers giving points for people helping out one time and other... — read more
I heard people in Florida were getting furloughed? Is this just a rumor?
Is there anybody here who can say they have a competent manager who knows what he or she is doing and who they can turn to if they have a question or an issue to solve? I'm honestly curious because I'm yet to run into one. I nearly forgot, those... — read more
What office's are closing???
Hi There were several people laid off today at Richmond BC office in Canada. Will there be more tomorrow or this is it? There was no email so probably not over yet.
This company hires tons of SVPs, RVPs, AVPs and any other letter you want to put in front of a VP title. Some of the VPs have never been a VP before but come in off the streets thinking they are going to "Change Healthcare". Incredibly top... — read more
Any news on furloughs, layoffs, or other organization changes during the next quarter? I'm assuming Quarter 1 results are unfavorable like anywhere. No merit raises, but there are funds to match personal donations.
What are the chances these employees even get called back? You see announcement after announcement yet nothing in regards to this. Many of these who have been furloughed play key roles in the business. Now that work is falling so far behind as many... — read more

I'm betting that senior leadership will still get their equivalent of a merit increase this fiscal year...
If you don't like the way CHC is run then get yourself a copy of Das Kapital and vote Socialist in the next election. Otherwise this is just good, ol' fashioned, unfettered, American robber-baron capitalism.
Look at them layoffs That's the way you do it You send the jobs out to the Philippines That ain't evil All the businesses do it Get your work done for nothing in the Philippines Now that ain't evil All the businesses do it Let me tell... — read more
This place is overwhelming! More pressure on the people that do work! Snakes in sheep clothing! It is a joke working here! No one is happy!
Without an explanation 60 coders were let go at 11am this morning.
Received one last night for today ? With several others that are in my same position in other offices?
There is no transparency. I know several long term employees who were laid off with absolutely no notice. One has a mother suffering from late stage cancer, and his father has Parkinson's and severe diabetes. His job helped paid for some of their... — read more
If the manager is not in good standing they are eliminating the teams as well. Those who are on teams but in good standing can simply re-apply if able.
I was laid off with most of my team in CA. I was actually one of the best performing managers with a 98% engagement score. Those that were laid off seemed random and a mix of my best and worst performers. Unfortunately they don’t seem to be cutting... — read more
Are they doing group calls with managers on the call to let go of employees or are they doing it individually?
So far it just looks like the Winston Salem office.
Some layoffs took place at Winston Salem today. Supposed to be reevaluating the numbers in June to decide if there will be more. They may simply be trying to get around the WARN Act by spacing the layoffs 30 days apart, so they aren't required to... — read more
And now that we have you doing the jobs of three people while stuck at home taking care of the kids and potentially elderly parents, we want to ensure that we get more work out of you by making you turn on your webcams. We want no "multitasking"... — read more
He didn't say when, where or how many, just that they will be happening. Fortunately the lady that spoke before him taught us some breathing exercises, so if you get RIFed just take a few breaths and everything will be ok in a minute or two.
