Another Week of He**.

Can anyone speak to the few posts awhile back on 11/20 lay off date? Especially if your dept has basically been offshored almost totally. It’s a long wait till Wednesday.

Have the layoffs ceased?

I’m sure there’s more to come, but I didn't see anyone mention layoffs happening in the last couple of days. Is it possible that they slowed down with this process. If so when can we expect the layoffs to start again. Are we at least safe for this... —  read more

Employee Surveys

The employee surveys are being sent out to be completed despite all these layoffs. Yet I didn’t hear or see any improvements from the last survey. So what is the point? Are the surveys actually kept confidential or do they use them to tag you for... —  read more

Try to stay positive

I have yet to be laid off. What I've learned over the years is that it's what one doesn't say that should be of concern. A lot of talk with no depth in my opinion can be or is the writing on the wall. Months ago there was a town hall or something to... —  read more

What departments are experiencing layoffs?

I’m relatively new to Optum and all of the talk about layoffs is overwhelming, especially since I don’t know all of the abbreviations. Can anyone tell me the likelihood of the telephonic case management programs being affected by layoffs?

This will not be a relaxing weekend

Actually, I don't see any relaxing weekends in our future, at least for a few months. I think by the time this is done, I'll need medication just to be able to get through the day. Isn't it sad what this company has done to us? I'm starting to think... —  read more

Can you foresee your layoff?

Are there any signs that are present days before your layoff, that could have indicated that you would get cut? Any different behavior from your manager, anything different in the assignments that you’re being given…. In short, is there any way you... —  read more

Hmm teterboro?

During the global townhall, a question came through on the chat about the fate of the future for the Teterboro employees. The person running the chat saw the question and hid it off the screen. She pretended there were no questions in the chat. ... —  read more

My perspective as an Optum employee.

I assume the layoffs will continue. Remember the layoffs of February 2019? I lost alot of friends. I am guessing there will be another round in Feb 2020. I wish I had been let go this round. This place is miserable. I don't trust Optum or UHG... —  read more

No end in sight to these layoffs

I'm not sure how much more NJ can take - not to mention HCT. How bad is it in other locations? Anybody else feels like they are taking this too far?

How many people do they think they can lay off?

Who do they expect to do the work???? The two people who are left out of whole departments? This is ridiculous! If they need to save money, they need to start with those on top. That's where the real fat is - and well paid fat at that! But no, of... —  read more

Quality

Why are they taking the chance pushing the layoff date out 2 weeks to 30 days after you are notified. With the hopes that people will find work elsewhere and jump ship so they do not have to pay severance? After receiving notice, employees are going... —  read more

40 Laid off at Jeffersonville Location

The entire upstairs is a ghost town. They were all told their last day would be December 4th due to outsourcing their jobs. So far the fulfillment area is safe but no one is sure.
