There is life after UHC. The world of Employee Benefits is extremely vast, find leadership in a new organization that places value in their employees and uplifts you when your down. So much this. This place is as toxic as it gets. If it gets to... — read more
Anyone actually watch their vaccination propaganda video? All the people in the video appear to be liberal and were spewing off lies from their echo chamber. One guy said the jab doesn’t affect women’s menstrual cycles. Umm the NIH is currently... — read more
People who are afraid of vaccinations should also be understood, but I am most afraid of the consequences of the long-term stress I encounter here on daily basis. I already have some psychosomatic problems because I am overwhelmed with work that I... — read more
Happening last week and this week; a round of layoffs on the UHC side.
People are worried about their health and I wouldn't want to get into discussion whether anyone should take the vaccine or not. Everyone should consult their doctor about this. I'm just noticing that there is a lot of noise and that many are now... — read more
New executive order that denies mandates. Not sure of all the details but may give cover for all the Texas employees and or give you some legal ammo to make things rough on UHG.
All this anti-vaxxer talk has become a Joke.
Does anyone in this company know the definition of Mandate? If you did YOU would NOT be complying with ANY of this! None of these “mandates” have been put into a bill, voted on and/or have become the law of this country. OUR 1st and 4th amendment... — read more
Anyone know how quick and easy it is to get your work furniture and equipment sent back?
curious who else is not going to comply with the vax mandate... i know of a handful of coworkers who are going for exemptions and won't comply regardless if they get approved or not.
Has this company even considered how it will replace all the people which they gave up so easily? Maybe they think it will be easy? I doubt it will be. Admittedly, they may not plan to replace most employees at all. Terrible times. This company is... — read more
Forcing the unvaccinated out the door isn’t good enough for them. They took a whole team of level 27 staff mostly nurses, dropped them to a level 26 and made them hourly instead of salaried.
Anyone know what they are looking for in the religious exemption letters and how strict HR will be with them?
I was cut last year and found a new home at Molina. I really like it and Molina likes to hire UHC folks who have been let go. I only share because I have finally found a nontoxic team, who appreciates me and my work. Go apply, they are good to... — read more
Northwell Health, New York State’s largest health care provider, announced on Monday that 1,400 employees — less than 2 percent of its staff — refused to get vaccinated against the coronavirus and had to leave their... — read more
I want to switch positions within the company but im worried they are going to make me get the vaccine if i do so
Any credible info on Layoffs coming before end of 2021?
Our managers are on a cap. They have to come up with a process improvements plan and then each week show the progress BUT the others managers have cut him/herout of the data so they are doomed. Along with the entire team (7 people). This is one... — read more
It turns out that what was written in the job description and what I am really doing here does not exactly match. How many of you get assigned tasks that are not specifically outlined in the job description and vice versa, not getting to do the... — read more
UHG culture is horrible and toxic as he-l. Nobody sane wants to be here.
So next will be UHG and other health insurers will not pay Covid claims for unvaccinated people. Actually surprised UHG hasn't done that already, the greedy ba..rds they are.
In a meeting it was mentioned going full automation in 2 months, what does that mean in terms of Layoffs? Thoughts?
I went through TDP right out of college. The program was great and we were exposed to a variety of new emerging technologies. I learned a lot during my first rotation while I did well in my second rotation. People were great but the entire TDP was a... — read more
Message was sent on 08/16 with deadline of 08/27 requesting that ALL employees. "Data is being shared to met local or state regulations or client or customer requirements" Email also states that employees who do not comply with providing mandatory... — read more
Anybody have dates ?
Watch your performance and 1:1. They have a few reorganizations so they can cut middle management and other low hanging fruit. The culture sucks!
Anyone who works in HR know anything about whether or not we are going to be required to take the vaccine? I did, but I am worried for a colleague. She is going through IVF right now and worried.
If you've been with UHG for a couple of years you know that no matter what kind of results we are posting, there will be cuts. Good or bad, it makes no difference when it comes to RIFs. The only way to deal with this is to have a plan ready. Always... — read more
Last week over 130 LHI/Optum employees were laid off. There are more areas under United Health Group that will be laying off before 2021 is over. Toxic Culture.
I am resigning from my position and giving 2 weeks notice. Does UHG ever let people go on day of resignation with or without paying out the 2 weeks?
There is NO rhyme or reason for the layoffs. The CEO received a $52 million dollar bonus YET he has the audacity to let workers go. OGS and USA teams will be laid off in the upcoming months of 2021. He didn't have a good track record with Glasko... — read more
I've been tasked with training several new hires and for some reason, I have a feeling I might be training my own replacements. I mean, we have been asking for help for a while now but we were being ignored for months and now suddenly we get three... — read more
They are not done laying off. Clinical Performance will take a hit next then others will follow. They are trimming the fat otherwise known as middle management. Karma comes to those who least expect it. Peace Out!
My department requires we work overtime every week. Has been 1 extra hr a day and now it’s 2 extra a day. How is this legal? It’s for “business needs”, but we have been in overtime since January. Anyone else dept doing this? Working from home as a... — read more
I thought the relief would come right after I left this company because of the unbearable amounts of stress. This is where I first experienced a panic attack. When I came to the new company 3 months ago, I was stunned at how nice people behaved. The... — read more
I thought they were done with layoffs this year but they continue to trickle in. I would not recommend this company.
What usually happens with companies that were acquired by UHG? Are layoffs imminent? Anyone can share their experience
Was there a recent layoff for E&I Tier II's? Normally the calls slow down the last 2-3 hours before we close. Now around 4 hrs before we close are queues instantly explode to double digits & the calls are non stop back to back right up till closing... — read more
I quit during the pandemic. It was nice to give them a big F U! I thought I would leave and be free of the emotional distress. It’s taken me months to recover and I didn’t even know I needed time. Today, I can’t handle stress. I can’t do... — read more
