Does anyone else find it a little eerie that absolutely nothing is happening right now?
Topics regarding layoffs at Optum
Welcome to PTO that is granted, not earned, 1.5 percent average merits, 89 reasons you won't get a bonus and consciously racially and gender biased buddy boy management full of nepotism at Optum Insight. Let the games commence.

There is a saying that goes something like "the companies must innovate and grow or die". Does it seem to you that Optum can no longer boast of its innovation? I think something must be done about that because if we stand still the competition will... — read more
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.
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
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

Just wondering if anyone had a favorite thing about working at UHG/Optum ?

I am a Sales Account Manager for The Optum Nursing Home SNP. We have a mandatory months end meeting - thinking this is going to be bad.... anyone else have thoughts on this?
Fear is an effective management method to get folks to work harder to avoid being laid off. You will take on the work of others. This is all planned to whip the employees into submission. The shareholders demand a return of their investment. Work... — read more

Anyone else get an "Equity Award"? What is that suppose to be for??
