I was laid off today. I must say that this was definitely a weight that was lifted off of my shoulders. I've never worked for a more unorganized, incompetent, antiquated and disrespectful division in my life. I was advised that I would be laid off during a Webex meeting at the same time as the people who reported up under me. You would think since I was a member of leadership the VP would have had enough respect for me to advise me during a separate call. That was the most tactless act that I have ever experienced in my 15 years of leadership. No notification, just blind-sided with my team members. I'm definitely over the disrespect that I've endured with OptumRX. OptumRx is unorganized and I know that my next employer will be better than OptumRx because this division is at the bottom of the barrel.

I was a female account administrator at the aetna in woodland hills california and just warning you not to look for work there. It was the worst experience I have ever had.
All good to read updates and pop in here to see progress - hoping all who want to get out have time to do so. Many other companies would love to have you..and higher pay!
I know other areas in Optum laid off folks this week. Some good people impacted which makes no sense
It's not tacky when it's true. This organization virtue signals to the public meanwhile
this company has it's front line people living on food stamps.
Then they have the nerve feed the line of Bullsh*t in townhalls that "You're most valuable employees and we appreciate the hardwork eachof you do. Sorry we won't be giving raises this year. Its just not in the budget. Also our profits are up
38% from last year making the 5th record performance year over year to date!"
Give me a break this organization It's a disgrace when your employees raises can't even manage to keep up with the pace of inflation.
Suic**al because you feel hopeless working here? Don't forget that you have 5 free EAP benefits to use for being part of such a wonderful organization ;)
Ex employee from Anthem why are you in. Optum thread see you tomorrow comment on everyone’s. Your BLM comment is tacky
From Anthem, did you bend over while 1/2 of India watches while they sponsor BLM?
