They don’t care that we are in a middle of a pandemic they axe our jobs only to send them over to India. Basically they are saying we don’t care if you die as long as our friends in India are safe and we pay slave wages to them. I guess upper... — read more
Severance is minimum 4 weeks, maximum 26 weeks. Based on tenure. Is there any way we can get more info on severance. What happens to medical coverage?
Now that the merger date has been pushed to February, what does that mean for us? It doesn't fill me with confidence that layoffs were announced practically at the same time. I'm worried we might see another round (and an even bigger one at that)... — read more
I'm seeing different numbers being thrown around, is there any way to know exactly how many? Just how bad was it?
CORPORATE GREED IS THE REASON AMERICA IS NOT #1. SELFISHNESS ON MOST OF THEUPPER CRUST. iF IT WASNT FOR US LITTLE PEONS THEY WOULDNT HAVE HAD THIS SUCCESS.
I know of at least two business units who called a meeting with a bunch of people and said we will be laid off effective. February 4th. About 200 people in the meeting I was in, and there were separate meetings for different groups so who knows how... — read more
I got laid off, basically fired and CHC's excuse was that I was missing too much training which was BS! I started a few months or so ago and could have been working there long before that if they didn't drag their @sses with the paperwork and getting... — read more
Let's just call this what it is, a litmus test for all remote workers.
From what I’m experiencing and witnessing CHC is not a company to have long term goals with. You will be asked to compromise your standards and work ethics, as well as your integrity. Working here wasn’t as bad as it could have been but then again I... — read more
Layoffs on the last day of the quarter! Woohoo :/
Company is healthy and good with promising direction
TES layoffs small numbers so nope warn act. Many good performers split already. People are scared s—-less. Good luck to y’all.
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
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
