Should I take it to HR?

Overtime for a whole year

Is it normal / acceptable for companies to be requiring mandatory overtime from 45-55 hours per week? Why not hire more people? The burnout is real and the Rph profession is going to sh*t. PBM is becoming retail.

Stop Complaining

Please stop complaining about your job. If you don't enjoy the stress of waiting to get fired or laid off, start looking for a new job. We all know how this ends. It took me well over a year to find a better position with a better salary. Put your... —  read more 

Lay me off

Please just lay me off. I’m still young, ambitious, smart and have dreams, and don’t want to age or retire in such an environment. 7 years here is enough. But apparently I just need some more balls to do the deed myself, and say goodbye to the 401K... —  read more 

Feeling on the Horizon

I have a feeling Optum is going to be laying more people off...does anyone have any insight? I heard April was the next time, but also heard through conversation that they were possibly looking at one this month as well.

Walked out

Been lurking here for awhile some stuff is off the wall insane but most is true. How hard does optum dispute unemployment behavior lately from management is insanely psychotic.
