Thread regarding CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield layoffs

I would happily accept a VBO

I would rather leave with a decent package after 15 years here than stay in a company that is completely different than the one I joined. That would actually be ideal for me. I haven't left yet because I'm wary of starting anew somewhere else, but leaving with a package would remove a lot of the uncertainty. So yes, I'd be happy to accept a VBO. I know I can't be the only one who feels this way as well.

As someone who chose to leave after only SIX years because the company I joined was not the company I saw (from best culture to worst), I can strongly encourage each of you to stay true to YOUR personal aspirations. I am passionate in my area of expertise, so when CareFirst no longer had any interest OR leadership who understood the space, I decided to leave. I am very good at what I do but I can’t force CareFirst - or any other company - to value my area of expertise. So I quickly and easily found a higher level position with of course a great increase in pay, fully remote, and this new company NEEDS my expertise. More than executive leadership even realizes. My team, as well as members of other teams in my division and others, are saying how glad they are that I’m there. I AM THRIVING in my new company and it keeps getting better. I feel like it’s CareFirst’s significant loss, but it doesn’t matter if they realize it or not. I am happy and making significant contributions and being recognized as THE expert in my space. I’m truly blessed.

Moral of the story: if you are passionate about what you do and you cannot be successful at CareFirst, invest your time in finding a company that truly needs and WANTS your skill set - then pour your heart into that new company! It’s well worth it!

I agree with the post not giving anymore time than 40 hours. No more logging on after hours and weekends or answering texts /emails during PTO.

Sc--w em'. Conscious decisions and changes were and have been made. And continue to happen one by one. Let them feel the repercussions of such while here. But all should be looking to LEAVE. If you are talented and hard working, why invest the energy for the organization to turn around and de-----e in your face.

Loyalty is a two-way street, so every time they take something away, answer that by taking something back for yourself. That would be your time. I'm giving 40 hours and not a second more. No more above and beyond, no more answering questions and logging in on weekends and PTO (which I've done many, many times over many, many years). No more.

I’m still in disbelief that a company can disregard part of their contract that was offered as my benefit package upon my employment agreement. This changes financial planning for my future and I feel taken advantage of at this point for my dedication and sticking through the storm the past few years. There is no benefit to be a tenured employee any longer.
