Thread regarding Optum layoffs

I got laid off today

I guess I'll just be singing to the choir when I say what a terrible company they've become. Don't even get me started on how badly management has been treating myself and fellow/former employees over the last few months. Time to move on. Good luck everyone.

Thank you to everyone that responded to this post with kind words. I really appreciate that. I'm still waiting for boxes in the mail to send back my equipment and will be signing the documents to get a severance in the coming days but I am curious about that whole process. I guess that will be a fun conversation with HR soon. As I said before, best of luck to everyone going through this. It is a sad situation but that's life sometimes. I'm just trying to take it all in stride.

Congratulations on your escape. Try to let go of the PTSD; you are going to do much better now that you're free of that piece of the corporatocratic takeover of the country.

I don't want details of what department you worked in. But...you were an Optum employee vs UHC.

@3xzo+15DwDNp6 . I respect that you did.not include your previous dept I formation as that may lead to unwanted attention to your former co-workers. I do also thank you for sharing your experience up until the lay off notifications.

You will bounce back and better than ever. At times uncertainty creates doubts for the future, but once you establish yourself in your soon place of worker you will look back and say to yourself it was all worth it. I truly hope everyone who gets laid off find a new job soon. I know it is only a matter of time before I'm next because I am getting targeted at the moment. I don't take it personal, but I do wish they would faster to terminate or lay me off.

It took awhile to have someone ship me a box/label but I should get a box/label this week to return my computer. The severance paperwork says you agree that you've returned your equipment by signing...

I couple of us were targeted and scrutinized suddenly in the last quarter of 2019. We chose to trade up and leave for greener pastures. No regrets!

I'd rather not get too specific about my last position, but I'll provide a few more details. I felt that I was targeted for whatever reason by management and overly scrutinized unnecessarily over everything suddenly. I knew immediately that something had changed. Needless to say, I saw it coming.
