Thread regarding UnitedHealth Group Inc. layoffs

Layoffs today at UnitedHealth

Somebody said in another thread that more layoffs have started at UnitedHealth today - but I'm not hearing anything here at the office. Is this true?

If it is, what's being hit? Any ideas on what might be next? How bad is it? I hate having to guess in situations such as this...

M&R was hit this week. Don’t know how many, but I’m sure it’s related to MOVE

Numerous employees from many different areas are being let go in Eau Claire WI. Quest hit hard and deep. Some teams work mandatory OT ! Worked here for 18 years ! Sad. The bottom line will now increase for the second half of the year so the share holders can reap billions.

Let go today after along with six others on my team after 12 years with the company. I worked hard & went above and beyond daily and it got me nowhere. I'm looking to the bright side but still disappointed as I know I did my job and then some (including the work of those they decided to keep on). Severance pay looks terrible and considering I know how to benefits are for employees here, I'll be applying elsewhere.

Uber, a taxi hailing app that has no profits is valued at 1/3 the value of the whole UNH enterprise on Day 1. Hmm. The whole poorly integrated hodgepodge of unintegrated entities is unwinding. The green visor boys never put the work in to integrate the units and make them work together. All of the retaliatory nastiness is coming home to roost. Wichmann bought shares on the open market. No confidence Davey. The shares keep falling.

A respected Federal Judge in Miami recused himself and called the UNH process for denial of Proton Beam Therapy “Immoral and Barbaric”. Judges usually choose their words sparingly. Hmmm. Is this More Unproven treatments or more pretextual denials? This is getting expensive. The class action lawsuits will result in more layoffs. Management grabs and the workers suffer. Hemsley got $66 million this year.
