Seen so many posts about people having no choice but to retire, and so many people saying they wouldn’t stand for being called back to offices. And being required to show proof of vaccination or showing a negative virus test result. How many are... — read more
Today’s town hall. A joke. Leadership didn’t listen to employee feedback. The ceo’s sorry behavior is flying in the face of dangerous virus variants. There is nothing inspiring in this message. If I hear one more time how successful we are, I’ll yak... — read more
It is ridiculous that a health carrier is mandating a return to the office. We will have been working and doing our job from home for 18 months but come September it is sitting in a cubicle with the non-stop interruptions that come from working in... — read more
HCSC sold their TMG Health division to Cognizant. They still are all tied together and they are b-ms. They discriminated against my disability and fired me. HCSC is a Blue Cross affiliate. Cognizant does their call centers. Cognizant also does... — read more
This company is run by nothing but fear. Management kept intimidating me with job insecurity and the fear of whether I’ll have a job the next day kept being thrown in my face. I have never in my professional career been subject to such humiliating... — read more
Employees, please share. Following the pandemic what do you think HCSC is obligated to do for you? I mean, beyond paying you for the work you contribute to the company. If you don’t get what you want, what actions do you plan to take? Will you quit... — read more
Is the WFH policy of living within 100 miles of your home office new since Covid? Every job posting that is eligible for telecommute seems to have that listed now. Is the goal to bring back people to the office full time at some point?
They lied about the survey. They do not care about any employee. They care about butts in seats and do not trust employees. Why? This feels like an office from our grandfathers era. Why does face time matter to these old men? They never spend time... — read more
I have worked in other companies and when I compare my experience here and there - HCSC is not very flexible company. Someone else noticed this as well, even after all the chaos with Covid, the working conditions here did not become any more... — read more
Nobody wants to work here and that's sad. Those who have seen how things work here want to leave as soon as possible, and those who are talented do not want to come here under any circumstances and waste their time. I don't know how all this will end... — read more
What do you all think about the Return to office update? Seems like it’s such a short notice.
How long have you been looking for a job? I have been looking for a new opportunity for too long and unfortunately, I only got 2 offers that are not much better than what I have at HCSC. Personally, I do not notice anything drastically better in... — read more
Executives and board members make extreme salaries and get ludicrous benefits with David Lesar being the biggest thief. Our employees barely get by while the executives and board people get richer and richer. The heads of the company are stealing... — read more
About who HCSC acquires or merges with?
If you are 55 yrs old and worked there 10+ years, you better think strongly about taking your pension and RUN!!!! The pension benefit will be the first to go, and it could go penny for a dollar. It will not be pro employee. ^ ^ I belong to this... — read more
I often get asked why I don't leave if I'm not feeling well here, insinuating that it is certainly not that bad here, because otherwise I would have left already. No, that’s not true. Just because I’m still here doesn’t mean it’s good. The market... — read more
What would they do if the employees could not work from home? How much do you think is saved on electricity, water, cleaning, security, etc. The little compensation we get for working from.home is nothing compared to what is saved. Year after year... — read more
Several of HCSC's Leadership team are young & inexperienced when it comes to C-Suite strategy. As mentioned in other strings, HCSC's board is probably running the strategy of the company. That's why the leadership team is comprised in the manner it... — read more
Judging from what I've been reading, the new head of HR will bring nothing new to the company. And he certainly is not coming to help us but to protect the company. In other words, just BAU.
Has there been anything new?
Heard from a source that HCSC and Anthem are close to a merger, does that explain the reduction in spending that we have seen this year ? Did any for-profit and non-profit Blues merge in the past ?
This week a lot of the FLIK cafeteria people are being let go.
It was announced not too many days ago that Dan McCoy is out as Texas plan President. What does this mean for people working for the plan? Do any plan employees think they know why he was sent packing?
Why does hcsc laying off all contractors. Is it going to continue laying off employees as well. Is all the layoffs are due to covid or is hcsc loosing business/premiums from the members
On one hand you have people having been let go saying we are top heavy on the other hand you have middle management adding new levels of management. In the past month alone I went from reporting to one manager to three additional mangers, yet I am... — read more
Glad to see the HCSC’s priorities are in order. How is this ethical? https://www.chicagobusiness.com/health-care/blue-cross-bosses-bag-big-bucks Blue Cross bosses bag big bucks Severance pay drove the outgoing CEO's compensation above $31... — read more
I’m curious about what employees think of how the company is responding to the virus outbreak? Have employees been kept informed routinely? Has ther company been proactive? Do employees trust their leadership? Does anyone think the leaders actually... — read more
It is my direct experience that everything now is geared toward keeping leader egos happy. In my department we had a glimmer of hope that our own leadership would help us overcome the leader egotistical b—s— that is rampant in the company and... — read more
What an effing joke! The business plan is just more of the same vague, wordy corporate speak that they always give us. There is no substance or real direction. It’s very disappointing.
The meeting came and went and no plans for mass layoffs by 3/2 like people said. Crazy how conspiracy oriented people are these days. Carry on.
Anthem has a larger membership and is for profit. HCSC reserves dwarf Anthem’s at $19 billion dollars in 2019. Or is Cambia/Regence blue cross on target for a merger?... — read more
What do you think, how will this year pan out for HCSC? How many layoffs will we have?
HCSC workers should unionize. This is ridiculous that no information is shared with the everyday workers. Only the directors and executives get the golden parachutes when they are dismissed. 20,000+ walking out would make our voices heard.
