Management didn't hit their quota and didn't produce. Their is a big shake up looming... called a re-org.
The real reason they stopped bravos and barely give a bonus is due to the fact that the less they pay out the better management looks. They are worthless and should be laid off.... again!
What are your bonuses looking like? In PI, it’s not too bad this year
I'd love to get out of here, but I'm still here. It may sound weird, but I really don't know why I'm hesitant to leave. I know other people who have the same problem - they want to leave but do not send any applications. Maybe it's the fear of a... — read more
Not only do I get paid more, but there is generally less work and less stress in the new company. Now I regret that I hesitated for so long whether to leave or not. Basically, I had a hard time accepting that I would have to start somewhere else... — read more
I had an in-law reach out to me last week to ask what's it like to work at Optum since he is considering transferring. He can't stand being overworked and underpaid at Molina anymore while he deals with a toxic work environment. Sounds familiar? Yup... — read more
People here were talking about layoffs, my colleagues were talking about layoffs, I was mentally preparing to hear the bad news. However, there were no layoffs last week or the week before. I'm even more anxious now. Could it be that Optum will... — read more
So if I read the email correctly, since my dept is on QVC, we will no longer get Bravos with points in 2022.
Why does it seem to me that more and more individual consumers are choosing not to buy Optum because they disagree with the policy of a company that finds cheaper labor in other countries? Is it possible that this is happening?
Anyone have companies to recommend. Is medica, bcbs or any other insurance companies better to work for. Thx peeps
I’m a business analyst and ranju did a townhall today. He told us if we don’t like it here leave. If we don’t like the culture we can exit. What a gem
What happened to the all the talk about Layoffs this week 12/13/21
While many Americans look for better paying job UHG has decided to flip Americans the middle finger and hire droves of people from the Philippines. They are currently hiring 3 IT associate managers for the help desk level which each manage can have... — read more
I am ready to give notice and I know that it will be a surprise to my manager because he is used to me always being a loyal, patient employee who always gave his best. I don’t believe anyone will try to keep me, nor do I think that it's not true... — read more
I've worked for this company for over 10 years and I would never refer someone to work here. They downgrade you and work you perform by calling you out in team meetings. The discrimination is bad... Not worth it
I'm in the process of looking for a job. I would rather leave on my own than have Optum tell me to leave. That's why I'm interested in how people who refused to work overtime fared? I constantly do an abnormal amount of overtime for one reason... — read more
I know of people who were forced to leave because they didn’t get the exemption, so I wonder if they didn't qualify for the exemption than who did.. Besides, the vaccine is not the only reason people are leaving. A lot of my colleagues have left... — read more
How many of you are facing the “Administrative Leave” next week? The last I heard was 15-20% of the employees were expected to be non-compliant and facing the leave….
I am (finally) planning my exit from Optum this spring. Does anyone know when the bonus payout date is for 2022? Based off last year I am guessing Friday, March 4th. Need to give my notice after that date. When I click on “2021-2022 Common Review... — read more
Thank you for all the support. Looking for ways to get a heads up for any terminations that might happen.
I know no job is safe but rumors about layoffs before the end of the year make me very anxious because that would be the worst possible time to get laid off. Is it even possible to somehow make the job any safer? Work harder than ever, work better or... — read more
Leadership seems to have no vision. Everything is so sluggish. It’s amazing to me that no one is even trying to better this company anymore. I guess they think that the situation as it is now is sustainable. Perhaps they don't know how? Maybe... — read more
Anyone with an actual date of layoffs before 2021? Without rambling about how awful the company is…Just dates….
Does anyone know if UHC, Optum fights unemployment? If someone were to quit, would they still be able to collect unemployment benefits?
I was involved in a call last week, where some of the leadership were trying to figure out ways to not allow employees to take their PTO. This was in efforts to cover for the large amount of employees soon to be on “administrative suspensions” for... — read more
It's truly pathetic when you are given (not earned) a management role. She meets with you ONLY to regurgitate EXACTLY what you told her to do as IF it's her idea or DIRECTION... What a total piece of sh-t. Her past completely explains everything! ... — read more
When will the layoffs and terminations begin again? We are getting closer the Thanksgiving and end of the year.
Any thoughts on the phenomenon about people quitting their jobs or moreover, getting laid off and not going back to work? We as employees are tired of being mistreated, having less and less each year as inflation rises. I remember when everyone got... — read more
Cheap workers mostly equals costly consequences. That is my opinion. This company doesn’t seem to be thinking about the hidden costs of cheap labor at all. That's why I completely agree with someone who said that Optum no longer has a long term... — read more
New executive order that denies mandates. Not sure of all the details but may give cover for all the Texas employees and or give you some legal ammo to make things rough on UHG.
It’s amazing to me that all the people I know who were cut here, were among the best employees. I think that's how I would rate them as someone who was their colleague. Sometimes I wonder if they have a good insight into whom they actually cut???... — read more
I personally haven’t had a chance to grow here and started looking for a new job. This is not a place that especially values talent or knows how to get the best out of its employees. Because, how else to explain that people who were here more than... — read more
How many people are going to bow down and vaccinate? I personally telecommute and find it ridiculous that UHC isn’t requiring telecommuters to vaccinate, but their red headed step child Optum is. They can have my job, I’m not doing it.
Meeting today that areas in Optum are mandatory vaccination for telecommuters regardless that’s UHG policy excludes telecommuters from vaccine mandates. They will lose their jobs by 11/30 if not vaccinated.
A manager who constantly focuses on what was done wrong, and never how much is done well... a manager who absolutely focuses on micromanagement of his employees instead of looking at what the competition is doing... a manager who thinks you should be... — read more
any chance that the merge with Change Healthcare will not happen? I see not much updates
Take the jab or no job. Who is John Gault? Just wait and see the brain drain and mass exodus of any talent they might have.
Today I realized that if my boss gives me "busy work" which is never used. I've decided to turn it into a positive to relax and slow down my work pace. I listen to motivational pod casts since I'm excluded from meetings. The company is toxic... — read more
