25 people from the Optum provider area let go. Great job folks in the leadership role!
This week until the end of February will be rough as 20% of clinical will be let go. They trimming from the top first so many of those in a grade 27 and below will be moved under different management. Cross your fingers

I was also one of those waiting for the package, however, this place became really unbearable and in the end I realized that the severance pay was not worth risking my health. It is easier to find a new, decent job than to continue to suffer... — read more

I used to put in as much effort as possible. Now... I don't even try anymore. I've noticed that others have less and less interest in keeping their jobs here as well. Or am I wrong?
They don't want ready change, just the illusion they are trying. This is so true. If they really wanted some changes that would improve this company, I think they would do things very differently than they do now, right? Personally I think that... — read more

The funny thing is that they make you do all these unnecessary surveys, like employee experience surveys where you tell them that management is the problem and why their scores are so low just so they can fire you and your colleagues. 🤩
Heard a rumor that the exec’s are planning to lay off anyone committing time theft across all departments.Is that even legal?

I've had enough. Reorg after reorg and things only get worse. Maybe the leadership should finally think about why reorganizations fail here?
HOT off the press... Clinical Performance is going through a re-org and there will be some layoffs and firings before the end of January, 2023.
The WARN Act requires an employer to notify employees, in writing, 60 days before a layoff, and pay the employee for those 60 days, in addition to any severance the employee may be entitled to. Unfortunately, some employers attempt to circumvent the... — read more
Heard CXO leaving... why? Will there be impact on others?
When are MAP reviews supposed to occur? If there is another round, I assume it will be before, so they don’t have to pay out???
What are people's experiences with finding a comparable job & salary following a lay-off?
From reliable source : layoffs happened today and will continue to happen. Not sure how far down it will go but still at a higher leadership level. PS. The highest of the Hierarchy knows about this site and is monitoring and trolling.
January - February Management plans on laying off 10% and terminating 20% in 2023. Consider it a blessing. After 20 years of this toxic place the only thing it was good for was to allow me to work from home so I could spend more time with my kids. ... — read more
Healthcare system I work for is being acquired by optum. What should we expect? Are they going to lay us off and outsource the jobs offshore? Has anyone been through this before? John m, Muir Bassett health?
The healthcare system I’m working for is being acquired by optum. All of IT is moving. What should I expect? Are they going to lay us off after the integration? Are they going to outsource jobs to India?
Kudos to those who manage to have a side gig, but considering how overloaded I am here, it wouldn't be feasible in my case. However, it seems that there are quite a few of those who have side gigs?
I can understand those who decide to do so. However, why waste time here on playing games, when it is actually possible to find a better job, where you will be much more valued and where you will not put yourself in danger of having your skills... — read more
Asking for a friend
My wife has MS. We have “insurance” with UHC and Optum Rx so we have nothing I guess. I’m so tired of the run around, hours on the phone and yesterday broke me. Yesterday some company Optum foisted on us came and took my wife’s wheelchair. The... — read more
This is now my attitude towards this company! It's toxic culture is disgusting!
Anyone heard about net zero hiring freeze or have any info? Heard a rumor about not being able to hire anyone new unless someone leaves your team. Headcount will stay flat?
the stuff that's happening.
United Healthcare/ Optum insight has been making billions of dollars and their stock prices have gone up. But, they(executives) will not pay their front line employees a decent wage for working. Every year the job expectations for customer service... — read more
Want to stay in company but switch teams. Wonder if managers get alerts that reports are looking around
Would like some "insights", experiences, pain points?
I’m not one to be a fanboy but ge-z the dude was on point today. Not from a ‘bean counter’ perspective, but from a ‘let’s go get a few pints at the pub’ perspective. Smooth.
There i said it! I put it in writing and emailed it out. It's NOT in my job description and I've never held that position..... So put in a CAP.... twist the words so when you talk to the Senior VP they quote what you said. They should be fired... — read more
I'm so surprised that the shareholders haven't pulled their money out yet. If they know about the upcoming lawsuits due to the toxic, discriminatory manner people are treated they would do a major reorganization starting with Sh!%#y W!#%ty.
Starting with optum soon. Curious if any software or cloud engineers feel like they have overhired like some other tech companies. Another question, how is the WLB? Do you like the tech stack and day to day?
