Does anyone know if the dental provider division is also being effected.
The branch where they update the state validations, etc.
They also perform any updates regarding dental provider places.
I'm curious to know.

If you are looking for other opportunities I recommend avoiding the aetna in woodland hills california location. I was an account administrator there. I worked there for a lot of years. From when they were in the old location to the new one a few blocks away. They disrespect each other there. They will not help each other out unless you are a friend. If you ask for assistance of any kind, you will get yell and scream at. It was the worst experience I have ever had. It was hard to stay there for as long as I did. There were also layoffs going on there as well.
I am letting you all know to avoid that place if you are seeking other work. In case they decide to hire again after the current hiring freeze they are having.
That particular place I would surely avoid.

OEA has been a target for a while. Bunch of highly comp’d departments that can’t articulate what they are doing, why, or what value it’s driving for the org - that can only last so long before folks wise up.

If this is anonymous, then you should be able to list actual information. I was an employee for 4.5 years and laid off in February; originally in Analytics but moved laterally to Vendor Mgmt - and laid off via conference call less than three months later.

The Best Buy VP is no longer with the company Optum. I met her in person. She has not been with the company for at least a year.

Sorry to hear, I too drank the koolaid when they announced no lay-offs. Some of the bigwigs could have bootstrapped our salaries with their multi-million dollar salaries. Ms. VP from Bestbuy is a grinning, two-faced egomaniac who hires her friends first. You know there are not many jobs and you had no problem pushing people out the door.

I am sorry to welcome you all the club. I was laid off last year after 15+ years, all 4s and 5s on evals. But I had worked my way up.... my bad....Uhg is regularly riffing people over the last year, in smaller amounts so they don’t report to street, while wichmann promises “no covid layoffs” during the BS town halls, donating money all over the place while screwing over long-term employees (they are really interested in the PR but hush hush layoffs....)and stock is cranking. I never imagined this company behaving this way. They’ve got nothing but a bunch of corrupt, bullying a–holes in management now. K–ls me to say all of this.

That doesn’t make any sense. UHG can donate millions but can’t work with current employees to reorganize. This is truly a disgusting company.
