Do they really do a big layoff the same day the earnings report is released? What if the report is favorable?
I've been with this company long enough to see the corruption, the lack of ethics and the 'good'ol boy' network. It takes one good lawsuit to actually make the headlines OR better yet for Amazon, JP Morgan and Warren Buffet to form a Healthcare... — read more

It is interesting how this company operates. The knowledgeable employees that take their work seriously, forgo PTO and put in 60 to 70 hours a week get termed while the slackers, gossipers and cheaters are retained. This just says it all about the... — read more
Is it a good sign if they are filling a position for someone who quit (about 50 of us have that same job)? Or could layoffs still happen...
The management is such that I would not be surprised if this company has become totally irrelevant. Maybe I’m wrong? Here is a list of some signs that indicate that the company is becoming irrelevant, and Optum shows almost all of these signs (if... — read more
Not sure how wide this is going but layoffs happening as we speak in Optum Insight. This is effecting the Optum Physician Advisor Solutions division. Might be others as well.
I hate meetings because nothing concrete is ever said and I have to draw my own conclusions between the lines. Terrible. Every new meeting story that gets told is more and more twisted? At least that’s how it seems to me. A bunch of empty phrases... — read more

Anyone been on this program? How did it turn out? It feels surreal when you are not even 100 day in the new organization 😕
The past 6 months or so I’ve been seeing the signs/feeling like a layoff is coming to my team. However, this past week, two new employees joined the team. Does that mean that layoffs won’t be in the near future? Has anyone experienced this? Just... — read more
