I noticed automation has been discussed more for my department. Feeling like my role may no longer be needed because of this. Any rumors about upcoming layoffs?
We are plotting to ALL go to HR to get our bullying, discriminating Boss laid off again! He was laid off before from UHC and somehow he was hired at Optum and NOW promoted to Director... WT4! He harbors a known coworker who yells in meetings... — read more
I noticed for our weekly meeting that our manager wanted all of us to check out that career goals profile and emphasized that if we wanted to pursue other options we should. I’ve never heard this as a group, the only time my manager talked about it... — read more
When I first came here, I really believed in the promises they make to employees. At this point however I'm sick of hearing them. Does leadership really think it will maintain morale by constantly making empty promises? Does anyone still believe in... — read more
I applied and interviewed for a few jobs at UHG and it seemed like the interview went well then all of the sudden all the job statuses said they are moving on with other applicants. I suspect my boss is blocking my job move. Does this happen often? — read more
I noticed the CEO mentioned implementing more AI instead of human work in claims (in the last Fireside chat). Do you think this change will leak into other departments as wel, such as sales/customer service?
Meeting expectations is not enough. My boss seems to go out of their way to find ways to criticize my work, added with passive/aggressive language. And I feel like I’m the only target. I wish I could know if my coworkers are going through the same... — read more
Working here I've noticed that UHG almost always has some small layoffs that often get under the radar. This time I’m not so sure that they’re not planning bigger cuts. Any thoughts? Everyone is talking about the recession and the air is thick... — read more
What departments were hit with layoffs yesterday? Is there a reorganization on the horizon?
It is clear that the company depends on shareholders to buy stock because it is necessary to raise money for growth. However, it is the employees who directly affect profitability. Why then does UHG put shareholders above its employees? I have... — read more
I’m quitting this company leaving immediately as I just can’t take the toxic management it’s a bad place to work cannot believe how unprofessional it is. Has been affecting my health.
Rumors of layoffs have been running wild lately but most of it boils down to "layoffs are coming." Since there is never a date or a number of people who'll be affected attached to it, I'm not sure how much of it is true and how much is just fear... — read more
How do people feel that have to do outbound calls?
Now I hope that at least there will be no changes for the worse, not until I find a new job anyway. I guess it won't get any worse? Working here has become really miserable. There used to be more empty promises. There are fewer of those now too. — read more
I am getting recruited to be a UM RN at United. How is the morale? Are the expectations unreasonable?
Has anyone else noticed that if you don’t pick a specific form of birth control you will be charged even with UHC insurance? I called my insurance and they said that some or-l contraceptives are in different tier lists which is ridiculous. I’ve never... — read more
A study showed that 90 percent of nurses are considering not just quitting, but altogether leaving the profession in the next year. I know this is true for me and many more I work with. If UHG doesn't pay attention and improves the way it treats us... — read more
Any news of any changes coming in the company?
I'm so exhausted. But it seems that rarely anyone here is not physically and mentally exhausted? It’s hard to avoid burnout when I constantly have more and more to do. Of course, the company doesn't worry much about that, because they don't... — read more
I know a lot of people who'd be more than happy to accept. Especially those who are not that far from retirement. That would give UHG what it wants - fewer people on the payroll - and it would save the jobs of those who want to be here. I'm not sure... — read more
Link below. Report: 90% of nurses considering leaving the profession in the next year Does that stat catch your attention? Good. Shawn Sefton, RN, talks about the results of a new survey of RNs, the key problems it identified – and how technology... — read more
What is call work/customer service like with the company? How do you feel about doing that work with UHC compared to places in the past?
I'm on the verge of burnout. The manager has noticed a decline in employee morale because it is impossible not to notice it. Now he is trying to raise morale through managing by fear. Is anyone actually happy in this company and not feeling... — read more
Annual survey is next month and HR is worried about getting terrible results after the disgusting compensation funding. Lots of meetings with managers to encourage "feel good" actions. Maybe they should just do what they claim they do and actually... — read more
I think attrition is high enough at this point that adding to it through cuts would leave us too understaffed. This management might be a lot of things but they're not stupid and they know that you need people to get the job done. We are already... — read more
Based on other posts, I wanted to see if anyone had heard anything in the grapevine about Unitedhealthcare hearing? Is there any talk of layoffs there?
When I first got my job here, I was very lucky to have a colleague who was a great guy and an expert from whom I learned a lot. Now that all capable and knowledgeable employees are leaving the company, the question is who will remain to be the... — read more
Interestingly, of all my colleagues, only those who rarely or never complained have left so far. Gone are the ones I thought were very comfortable here. On the other hand, those who are constantly complaining are still there. Most spend too much... — read more
Are telecommuters required to return all of the office and desk equipment they were issued by the company when they leave? I know I’ll have to send my laptop and corporate ID back, but curious if anyone was required to return their monitors... — read more
I had to go through nine years of manipulation, gaslighting, and bullying, all aimed at ensuring I am always at work, always doing several jobs at the cost of my free time and my family. And what for? Low pay and no chance of promotion? I was... — read more
That too is happening here. A colleague has left and for days now no one is able to cover her work. This is just one of the many consequences of terribly poor organization and poor management. No one can cover her work because everyone is already... — read more
As long as there are enough of us who will work and give our best, despite the fact that people in much smaller companies often have better benefits than we do, nothing will change here. It saddens me terribly to hear that smaller companies value... — read more
In fact, nothing has changed here for a long time. The same problems are always present. Additional problems are piling up. People leave dissatisfied with pay and the general way the company treats employees. Now that the best have gone and when it... — read more
Anyone hear through the grapevine?
Even those whom I thought would stay here for a long time are leaving now. I think this says a lot about the current state of United health. Not only those who are completely undervalued here are leaving the company, but also those who were very... — read more
