Thread regarding Centene Corp. layoffs

Who hurt you Sarah?

Anyone know what the heck is going on in the heads of the people who run corp. quality? Positions held with no explanation, people leaving in droves, every single thing epic failing and this new head of the department is just smiling through town halls like the dumpster isn’t on fire and flowing down the river. The new employee engagement plan is to make us fill out a 17 page PowerPoint full of bu-----t about how we like to work. Ummm…how about we need enough people to do the work and a leader who isn’t making it up as she goes along…didn’t need 17 slides to explain that concept!! Seems like the plan is to make it so miserable everyone quits so they don’t have to pay any severance…

So seriously what is going on? Anyone know the plan?

So, a lot of people on here are mad about this clearly frustrated person, and are calling them a troll, but you all are spewing vitirol that is 100× worse than what they said. Many of these comments are seriously distrubing. One of you literally mentioned that his mom probably regretted waking him up from falling asleep in the bathtub and then hating him forever or something? Holy moly! How do you sleep at night, ma'am/sir? Whatever this person said based off their experience is way less cruel and troll-esque than 90% of your curse-filled, hated-drivwn replies; which honestly, highlights a ton of the issues that MANY current Quality employees feel.

Why would people honestly take part in the Employee Engagement surveys and discussions (that have very narrow lenses to begin with) when there is a team ready to pounce on them for any negative remark. Any time anyone in this area states an issue, even constructively, they are ignored, replaced/forced out, etc. - never heard. Groupthink will not lead to longterm success, any business or depertment needs to grow in collaborative efforts and leverage feedback and strengths accross roles. Research organizational theory surrounding companies that have the highest cult customer following and customer satisfaction- this is where it starts, with employees who are satisfied and feel heard - they are motivated to do the work that impacts our members to their best ability! No one is heard in this department outside of a select few, and most are made to feel disposable.

I don't have any strong feelings against Sarah or any of the changes in particular, and unlike many of the comenators on the original post - i try to be level headed amd not respond with anger, but to listen and think. This group that has swept in and talks down to everyone who has been here and who doesn't collaborate or listen - will ultimately be the downfall of this department if this continues.

Some of you mentioned how much of a mess this department has been, etc. Well, imagine for some of the valuable, veteran employees who have been bounced around like disposable pawns for years, having a new leader come in being excited about potential change and opportunity, and watching them literally bring out a ton of leaders from their old places of employment. Virtually no discussions with current employees regarding opportunities from their unique lense on the wide-range of process that need improvement - no promoting these veteran employees who may have dealt with poor leadership for years, and tried to do good work and make an impact despite it - we have all watched a group come in directly due to one person that has put a large number of people into leadership roles. Which, yes, if the impact is positive- I'm all for it - but look at what you people are writing on this board? Do you think anyone who takes issue with certain things or gives feedback with strategic suggestions would feel comfortable providing that to any of you?

What you said about others says more about you than you think, who started this post is acting like an oppressed victim, but didn't hesitate to try to demoralize and judge someone else's character. In my opinion if you go to the internet to create a smear campaign just because you don't like someone , you are the toxic one.

I have been in many organizations and I have seen dinosaurs like you that has crust in their bottom ,that they think they are owed the world because they know a few secrets and unwilling to share , seems to me who posted this is just one of them and Sarah is just a gust of fresh and clean air that people like you are unable to breathe.

The original post is not referencing Sarah London for people that are confused. It is directly referencing Sarah B, who is the new leader over the Quality Improvement organization.

Two very different people, approaching work very differently, and with very different quantifiable outcomes.

It's shocking that people just immediately assume the original post is lazy or somehow just angry at being asked to do their job. It reinforces why toxic work cultures don't change - it takes people to enable them by shifting blame onto individual contributors.

OMG, the Go-Sarah brigade is flooding the board with cheerful propaganda.

Sarah is a public person now and as such she'll have to live with some open criticism in media and on social sites.

I can tell Sarah indeed inherited a mess, and some entitled as-----s like the one wrote this post, has done nothing, but to sabotage, gossip and create more problems to the organization, it is very refreshing and impressive to see how she is moving forward Quality

The original post is disappointing. I’m sorry to whoever you are and the obviously negative experience you had or are having, but this is not how you do it.

This website and this post was sent to me by a colleague immediately following its post and now has over 800 views (side note: who’s ever heard of this random site. I feel like this is where the Incels and trolls go to hangout). Anyway, your attempt to garner support and create a coup is apparent.

I don’t know how long you’ve been with the organization or department, but if you don’t know, it has been an absolute mess (Complete lack of vision, strategy, resources, and alignment). I can’t imagine the insanity and frustration that our new CQO is experiencing. I’m sure being held accountable for issues outside of your control or capacity is frustrating, but as a leader, making god knows how much money, you should have managed up. If you tried and nothing changed, it’s time to go, but if you never tried at all….who did that help?

Just want to say that seeing all of the positive posts is restoring my faith in humanity. I was expecting a vent session when I saw the post and the response is the opposite. I am choosing not to get sucked into the politics. What I have directly seen is a smart (extremely smart), articulate, dedicated and transformational leader. I am choosing to to say YES, this is what we need and I am 100% behind the transformation. I actually have hope for the first time in a long time that we are going to kick some a-s. The potential was always there. Sarah is going to bring it to fruition.

I was going to comment, but I agree with the majority here. Sarah is a breath of fresh air. Keep seeing things through your sh-t colored glasses and if you are not part of solution, go spread your negativity somewhere else!

In the short time I have watch Sarah lead I can tell you how extraordinary she is she. Good things things will happen in her organization. She leads with integrity, honesty, humility and purpose.

She is in inspiration. I can only hope one day I have her skill set to inspire the masses build relationships and transform what is broken to purpose driven.

Post ID: @2yhu+1glIVxf0

Hmmm…what did you want to achieve. Anytime I see this type of negativity and poor me attitude, one must wonder if your mother dropped you on purpose. Like you were the kid she lets sleep in the bath tub then felt guilty. That’s a hard one to explain. I get it. I probably would have pulled you out at the minute then hated you forever. Sorry that happened but you have the choice to always choose good. Your mom did, for her reduced jail time. Not for me.

But hey we all learn. And if I can say it clearer.STOP BEING A JERK! You are not wanted at work so quit. Good golly it’s not a hard choice just the right choice.

I feel fortunate to be on the Quality team and excited to be part of the change taking place.
I found the last Quality townhall very informative and transparent. I also am grateful to have a leader that invests in associate engagement and finds value in employee satisfaction. Other organizations do not place such an emphasis on this.
Don’t bring the rest of us down with you.
If you don’t like it here, then make your own change and find a new job, if you’re able.

Grow a backbone dude, what makes you think you are owed something, I hope to see you gone soon. Centene and quality will be better off without you, believe me. Sarah will do great, we finally has a leader that is worth it.

I am appalled by this attack to Sarah, you go to a public forum to trash talk about someone who has a big responsibility in her shoulder and just because you want to much off of a Corp and do nothing, go somewhere else body, you are not needed, we wish great success to Sarah.

Hello cry baby (which is an insult to babies). I’m required to do my job, I’m required to perform at certain expectations, I’m required to work, poor me… it’s so unfair. Sounds like you are indeed the problem. Sarah is NOT the problem. The power point to help your team learn about you and improve communication is NOT the problem. You, yup you are the problem. The lazy aholes/shbags we deal with everyday that FAIL and have excuses for NEVER performing. Let me guess you’d like McKinsey to come in again and do all the work while you get time to relax.

As for the mythical turnover…I wake up everyday with renewed hope you will quit. And everyday I’m disappointed you just continue to bring down the department. You continue to stay because your skill set of lazy is not a transferable skill. You could learn and improve but that’s not you. So I’ll say goodbye in advance and wake tomorrow with renewed hope.

All you need to do is look at the turnover rate in quality to know the true effectiveness of the current leader. VPs and sr directors vanishing without a trace, replaced by some of the least competent warm bodies imaginable. Every metric in the tank and getting worse since she arrived. Just look at how she talks to her teams and you can see the root cause of the dysfunction. When everyone has a problem with you, YOU are usually the problem! Unless the Sarah bots and HR shills in here think a 75% turnover rate is the mark of a great genius 😆

She needs to do something, so if a 17 pager will do it, let's check that mark.

She also needs to believe things will be OK, she needs to project that.

She needs to push forward and hope she'll be able to stay in her position as long as possible. In her case time is, the proverbial, money. Every day counts quite a bit.

If I was to advise her, I'd say: be brave, try to improve things as much as you can and try not go get fired as long as you can.
