Hello. I am hearing that some lower level folks have been laid off within ADRT/OSS (26, 27, 28s) and some higher level folks have been laid off in other parts of OAS? It's confusing as who was affected and why? Any insights would be great. What a... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Optum
Anyone else notice that Wicks Weekly is canceled for the rest of June? Wonder if he’s avoiding questions or comments about the massive layoffs happening? Or is it just a coincidence?

Does anyone know who owns this website? It has tons of posters, so somebody is making money off this website. I always like to follow the money and see the agenda behind things.
Does this mean Layoffs are coming? Can anyone give a timeline?

This company is ran by sleazy mgmt, the kind that need a solid boot to the a** throughout the American economy. I dont see America ever being "great again" so long as the caliber of mgmt shown in Optum is what is in power in the US. They are vampire... — read more
Usually this is a sign of attrition, which leads to layoffs if the attrition isn’t enough in dollars. I believe the previous posts more will be coming.
Not laid off, specifically furloughed?

Was the below post of layoffs beginning May 4th/May 5th hold true for anyone so far today?

For the past year Optum has been laying off American workers and hiring overseas. This will continue into 2020. This compromise of your personal information and the contracts they handle are a violation. Layoffs will ramp back up.
Optum is planning on installing back office across the enterprise. Some groups are already on it and have been for awhile but if you’re not aware what it is, it’s creepy and big brother at its finest. For those computer based, they can see what you... — read more

Has anyone heard of layoffs close to April 15 when the next earnings report is announced?
They changed parts of the web site and broke it! If you are already on unemployment and try to file your weeks, the system kicks you out once you try to get to the page where you enter in the work you contacted during that week. It says once you... — read more
