Optum360 purchased MedSynergies a couple years ago, but we did not 'transition' until 12/24/2017. Since then, they have severance more than half of our employees. They claim this is due to losing a major client (CHI) in September 2017. They assured people that there were many clients in the pipeline just waiting to sign contracts. The current situation is we're on a 'project' that ends on June 30th. They're going to let us know "when they know" if it's to be extended. Since September, they've told us about how they're fighting for our jobs, we need to be patient and/or are free to seek other employment. I've come to the conclusion that they really don't know what they're doing, other than gobbling up small companies to increase their portfolio and market share. I've heard of this with other companies, that go under once purchased. The mouth service they give is particularly insulting. A very supportive face is presented at a corporate level, yet the reality is different. Just wanted people to have some input when making a decision on whether to work for a UHG/Optum companies.
UHG tried to blame all of the lay offs on Trump getting elected. Anyone thinks it's true or just more UHG B.S.?
