I've heard from a few different sources that more layoffs are coming soon. Probably at the end of this month or in early March 2019. Anyone else hearing this? Who else is looking for a job?

Optum Enterprise Analytics (OEA) laid off all project managers, Directors of Data Science and a few junior data scientists. This wave came in mid-May. Partially due to merger with Advisory Board Research. Partially due to their revenue stream.
They fired supervisors in multiple areas in ny . Prior to this ( 1/2019) they transitioned all management to be under hospital employees (Northwell Health) and then got rid of about 20 supervisors last week .
My guess would be to keep optums firing numbers lower, so when they do the next round with the optum employees it stays below the WARN act
There were some layoffs in the desktop support area a few weeks ago.
Yes I was laid off on 1/28/2019 with no warning. I was told by my manager it was down sizing. He showed me a list of titles with 53 titles but no names and 6 titles were checked off. I was with the company for 14 years and now i'm gone. Something doesn't seem right.
Check the Hub; the MOVE initiative’s goal is to reduce operating expenses by 15% over the next 3 years across UHG as a whole.
Who/what groups within payment integrity?
Do you know the impacted areas? I know payment integrity was hit last week
