What can be expected in terms of layoffs?

Management doesn’t understand the roles of different departments that they are leading and in charge of. How can you expect something from someone in which you’ve never experienced first hand the role of the job you’re in charge over. The goals are unachievable and they don’t have the leadership needed to promote team leadership and success for the company . HMS was some what the same; however they cared more about the quality of work, They focus on numbers ONLY and care less about the quality of work. You can’t speak out on issues ongoing within the company because then you’re considered being combative. Managers and operations talk about each other and play the blame game. You’d be surprised about the things and complaints coming to HR. You’re expected to do a job that your managers can’t even do even if they were put in a predicament and paid more to do your job. It’s unheard of. Turn over high, as you can see why now. It’s not the company it’s who they hired to lead within the company. Some of the managers should be working at McDonald’s. That’s the level of experience and professionalism they have.
re: DXC / Gainwell not being US based ....
Gainwell is the State and local government business, i.e., Medicaid, that used to be part of DXC. These contracts typically stipulate that resources are on shore. So Gainwell is US based. But the positions are often in lower cost cities such as Conway, Arkansas and El Paso, Texas.
After Veritas bought Aetna Health and DXC, thousands were cut so be ready. Just read the reviews for DXC and you'll see what's ahead. Very poor reviews on job stability, pay and benefits. DXC/Gainwell is not US based.
Yes I worked there. Culture? There is none. GT is a hodgepodge of EDSers, HPers, CSCers (never met one) , Molina people and lots of newbies. Everything is a reflection of that, from the various attitudes towards work as well as the jury rigged systems.
Benefits are not good. 401k match is small and only paid out if you are employed on 12/31.
They are awful at giving raises and the laptops they issue are substandard.
The bean counters and project managers are at the top of the food chain. Neither group understands the Medicaid business.
If you decide to stay you need to secure a raise and good equipment now.
Why is GT not a good company? Did you work there? Culture bad? Pay? Benefits? Can you offer any more details for us?
The timing may work out nicely for you. GT is likely to have it's own layoffs soon, and history (HP, HPE, DXC) shows they always go overboard. When HMS merges they could be in desperate need of people.
Then again I advise you to avoid GT at all costs ... it is not a good company.l
I assume that yes, there will be changes and potential layoffs but that is likely not going to happen until April-June I'd imagine if at all. From what I can tell, Gainwell is basically a newly formed company from a DXC offshoot (that also included some HP). Only time will tell so try not to worry too much. I'm a long time HMSer and although I'm sad that this is happening, I think it could be a good thing. Just hope I don't eat my words.
Don't know but you must assume there will be layoffs. Was told their work is complimentary to ours so that's not good. Update resume and be prepared just in case.
(RTTNews) - HMS Holdings Corp. (HMSY) and Veritas Capital-backed Gainwell Technologies announced Monday that they have entered into a definitive agreement whereby Gainwell will acquire HMS in an all-cash transaction valuing HMS at approximately $3.4 billion.
