I just wonder why people are still waiting at anthem and for what? They just layoff most of the people below Staff VP post in the next 2-3 years.This is including those people who were hired from the contracting companies earlier .Once the corresponding Legato team is able to work independently the respective US team will be laid off.Also most of the people hired from Contracting companies still in H1B visa and not going to process green card application as continuous layoff will stop anthem to filing GC for these folks.Just think that this company which do not care about those people who worked for them 35-40 years will never care about those people who worked for 2-3 years.Don't wait for your term H1B folks.Just find another company as soon as possible.

My job was just eliminated and I was told if you were employed on 12/31/19 you get your full AIP.
Layoffs before AIP payout? That’s cold. According to the AIP guidelines I believe you have to be employed the date of the payout to receive it.
Lay-off coming 2/28/20. Be proactive friends.
The issue is that other healthcare insurance companies like United Health Group are also RIF'ing at the same time as Anthem. Small regional healthcare systems like Sentara and Vident have reduced hiring. A person would need to look outside of healthcare to see who is hiring or go to big staffing firm.
I left Anthem a couple of weeks ago. I had been looking for a while and the right thing suddenly came up. Take heart - many companies offer work at home these days and it can take some time to find the right thing, but keep your eyes open. You never know what you'll find. I at one time loved working at Anthem but felt that I was spinning my wheels the past several years because my department was reorganized repeatedly - we had to keep starting over. I was also tired of the drag of having the proverbial knife to our throats at all times and it became a depressing place to work. I had been hoping for the severance package but now that I am gone, I am very glad I left on my own terms. Folks...go for it. There is life after Anthem and it is good!
Damn them for offshoring jobs. This made me go from right to far left. I don’t care anymore. I just want to see them “burn”.
Damn them for offshoring jobs.
I've been having a hard time finding a job that is local and not contracting. The competition is fierce.
I would love to leave. I have been miserable for a couple of years. But I take care of an elderly mother and work from home really is the only option for me. She’s gone on in-home hospice in the last month, so as soon as I get a chance to get out of anthem, I’m gone.
I work from home–I've been offered a few other jobs but I'd have to commute. I'll wait until they let me go it's a good job market out there ...
I Totally agree I am waiting for them to lay me off been here over 30 years was hoping for 7 more years to retire but not looking good. I have been miserable since the new ceo took over and destroying the good company it was
Your response made me cry :(
You're right. I'm miserable here but I'm waiting because I really need the severance and unemployment if they are offered during a layoff. Unfortunately I am not in a position to quit right now. The job market in my region is not so great and I don't have the credentials to find other good-paying work easily. Good luck to everyone else, hope you don't get stuck like I did...
