I ask because there are many rumors that RIFs are around the corner.
Well, the Merger was approved by the Judge today. What do we think it means for us in the coming months?
I’m interviewing for a sales role. Curious how sales are going. Reps hitting their numbers? Good work life balance? Good training?
Maybe the judge will announce a decision in September and end the waiting. They presented a good case against it. Doubt that we will become United Health. Will we restructure and reorganize our efforts when the acquisition falls through? Are we... — read more
Chime in on what you would like to see done differently. If you're a contractor, employee, manager, middle manager, VP, a candidate, or other, what would you change to make this company better?
There is a trend in this company where the young, white men are laying off the older women over 40. The recently wiped out an entire department of older women and the severance was pitiful
There are many who say that this is a very unprofessional company. I agree. What is the most unprofessional thing you've seen this company do?
https://biz.crast.net/we-value-diversity-company-fires-white-woman-who-harassed-black-man-and-his-children-outside-her-home/ Makes you wonder about how she treated employees who report under here.
The list of reasons is probably long, but I'm interested in when you experienced the final breaking point and gave notice?
I'm curious how this will all play out. Optum had a recent layoff and CHC is on a hiring freeze. Hopefully it will mean a well balanced team. Optum could use some of CHC culture. I wouldn't stress over layoffs because severance packages will be... — read more
As someone here said, CHC is trying to adapt to a rapidly changing world. The question is does it do it well?
I have been working with CHC for 5+ years but suddendly I see a big shift on the managment and Organization change. well, I am aware about Merger but still feels like people are leaving and laid off here and there. Next 6 months or may be 3 months... — read more
I'd like to know if the merger is going to happen or not right now and I'd like to know if my position is going to be cut or not as a result. Having to wait as long as we have and speculate and worry over it is ten times worse. Just let us know... — read more
Maybe I still haven’t left just for the reason that I used to really love working here and was still hoping it would get better. When did you stop loving your job here?
We had a candidate tell us that his contract was terminated due Change no longer focusing on interoperability. We're trying to confirm the validity of this change in strategy/termination.
Among the things that bother me the most in this company is that it is very obvious that a person cannot progress much if he or she is not one of those yes men among the manager's favorites. I'm sure I'll be leaving because of this and I think... — read more
I am a new hire. Was given a verbal offer last Wednesday. Still waiting for a final written offer, what gives? How long should I wait for this written job offer?
So many experienced and knowledgeable long-timers leaving? OK. a lot of new employees are leaving as well, but that is not my point. It’s obvious that this company never cared or thought much of its employees, but with these levels of attrition of... — read more
I'm in a position where I can't afford to lose my job and I don't have the time or energy to look for a new one. As a result, I'm worried 24/7, which is contributing to my already elevated stress levels. I'd ask for unpaid stress leave if I wasn't... — read more
Hiring is now frozen across all units.
I know three people who were laid off in December. All of them have new jobs with better pay and better company culture (at least that's what they've been telling me, and they have no reason to lie). They said the job market is good enough right now... — read more
It will almost be a relief if it happens to me. I'm always tired and overworked. I'd be looking for a new job if I had time to do it, but mostly I just eat and sleep when I get home. I don't know if this is the case for everybody or if my boss is an... — read more

It doesn't really matter to me.

Change Healthcare's mostly white male top level management reduces predominantly minority covid vaccine conscientious objectors into second class workers with their new Return to In-Person Activities policy.
Looks like the DOJ is going to block the merger. This is good and bad news. CHC assumed the risk should the deal fall through. They will have to pay UHG 300 million. Rest assured they will be looking to make up that money.
DOJ approved the merger. https://distilinfo.com/healthplan/optum-finalizes-plans-to-merge-with-change-healthcare-by-2022/
