Thread regarding Anthem Inc. layoffs

I no longer want to meet their expectations

In essence, Anthem has expectations that are impossible to meet. I tried for a long time to meet their expectations, but I don't want to do it anymore. Only the bare minimum.
I absolutely think that all the effort and working hard are simply not worth it. At least not in my case. Is there anyone who thinks it was worth working hard in this company?

Just a few years ago before Gail and Bill, Anthem was a great company to work for. Since then, you can’t present ideas. You need to stay in your lane. You need to shut up and met the shiny new Staff VP from United Health present all the ideas you have worked long and hard to develop and curate.

It does not matter how hard you work or not. It does not matter how much of a team player you are. They will toss you out with a 2 minute speech. The sad part? They don’t care. They’ll hire someone else and repeat the cycle. At the same time, promoting “the health of humanity” — could that be any more pretentious?

Wasted millions on nonsense.

Wasted solid talent and experience.

Anthem has lost its way. Bring back Joe Swedish!!

When I started here several years ago my motive was to keep getting promoted, but now that I see the ridiculous amount of work getting piled on those who higher than myself, I have absolutely no motivation to get promoted any time soon. Considering this is not a company I see myself with in even a years time, the last thing I want is to make that last year any more miserable than it already is.

There is one thing worse than an employee disengaged as they have created many here. And no disengagement doesn’t bug me one bit. However the latter does - employees that are intent to cause company failure. In truth it’s happening without assistance but it’s not as bad as another company in same industry. Associates that stay to witness the downfall with glee and actively participate on intentional take down are the worst. Not because the company is untouchable but because there are many internal employees that refuse to be burned anymore with lack of appreciation and mediocre reviews. Don’t think everyone here has good motives. It’s possible the sweet coworker you have is aiding in the demise of formerly known as Anthem and now a new ‘Beacon’ of
Light emerges on the horizon. I expect many leadership changes coming. Let’s just wait and see

Please know that you are not alone. The better you do, the more work you are punished with. They've got me bursting at the seems trying to solve issues for OPs. The stress is becoming unbearable.

I worked 30 years for Anthem, giving up most of my weekends, kids birthdays etc. at the end I was thrown out like nothing. So no, it does not matter how hard do you work for Anthem. When the time comes you will be gone with the statement "your job has been moved oversees"
