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
My position was eliminated April 2021. I had just received an exceeds expectations performance review and a nice raise only to be blindsided 2 months later with a layoff. Why is the company letting go of an employee who performs well? Doesn’t make... — read more
I left UHG 3 months ago thinking I could have a fresh start with another company. I thought the two weeks off prior to starting with my current company was all I needed to decompress from the emotional and mental exhaustion that I had endured over... — read more
The worse the company treats the employees, the more layoffs we have, the higher the stock gets. I understand that layoffs and reductions in benefits reduce costs - something investors love - but employees are those who are providing the services... — read more
Never in my life have I heard such crying. Grow up, no wonder you hate your jobs lmao. Bunch of minions with no control over your lives.
I think I have always been very dedicated to my job. I loved what I was doing and I could never have imagined doing any other job. However, lately I’ve really struggled with motivation for doing my work here. I thought I was starting to hate my... — read more
What does it say about a company when its employees are constantly waiting for the next round of layoffs and hoping/praying that they’ll be picked? Every time layoffs happen I always hear how “lucky” those people impacted are. UHG has become such a... — read more
What was the worst department you worked for or worked with and why? You’re welcome to be as specific or vague as you like.
Seeing how this is the last week in April is anyone aware of more layoffs?
The big perk is it's a US work from home and I know I'll be doing at least 2 long distance moves in the next 5 years. I was also told there's some installation for internet which seems odd. I just hope moving won't be difficult since the job... — read more
I haven't heard anything about more layoffs any time soon, this is not about that. I'm curious in general about how the whole process plays out just to know what to expect in case I'm affected sometime in the future. I'm interested in details about... — read more
At most of the companies experience gained by years spent there is valued and rewarded by the leadership. Not here. The longer you’ve been here the bigger the chance of you being laid off with no warning. They don’t see experience, all they see is... — read more
I have noticed that management are starting to nitpick about everything. Including how long an employee is on the phone trying to help their members. The neverending emails and policy changes daily. I really think they are trying to stress their... — read more
who's brain child thought that a team of less than 10 can handle all groups in a region? sales and account management is now just sales which shows us all this company only cares about making promises to secure a new sale then pointing fingers at... — read more
I am going to bet that UHG will start laying off USA workers and hiring OffShore due the Corporate Tax increase.
I’ve been with the company for about 5 years and I’m looking at a few open positions to apply to here. Does anyone know if the entire application process is the same for internal candidates as for external ones? I live in a state where recreational... — read more
Do they really do a big layoff the same day the earnings report is released? What if the report is favorable?
I’m still safe but I don’t care if they let me know about the layoff very soon or at the end of the month. I have been preparing for a long time because it is clear that the company is slowly sinking. A colleague who was convinced that his position... — read more
UnitedHealth Group is notorious for laying off in small chunks so April, 2021 they will be letting small groups go so that the public is not alerted and they don't have to report it to DOL.
To offset any bad UES scores I may get I have been making sure to ask members to hold for the survey. I am working harder and trying to be the best that I can be but I've noticed that even though I am getting way more UES scores my overall score is... — read more
I know that HR is not there only because of the employees, but because of the company, but I still have a few minor problems in my relationship with a colleague that I can’t solve. I have a feeling that even though the person who is causing the... — read more
The past couple of weeks have had many managers and supervisors eliminated to "focus" more on consumer needs??? Without a middle layer of leaders between the workers and the VPs, you have no source close to the daily strife so how are these... — read more
In my department there is a manager who shows extreme favoritism towards certain coworkers. It's obvious that we are not treated equally. It’s pretty unsettling to watch this on a daily basis. I know I should keep my head down and just keep quiet and... — read more
I've been applying non stop to other positions for months now and I haven't even gotten an interview just always a no. In the last year in the appeals dept I only know of 1 person moving out of the dept to another position. Anyone know if it's just... — read more
work the job to learn as much as you can while you can watch for other jobs. You can decide to stay or go after a while ... listen to your gut and weigh that against your other life commitments. A retail worker typically makes $ 11 / hr and has to... — read more
UHG offered me $16 per hour and the job is fully remote. I wanted to ask on this board to see if I should continue with this job and start in 2 weeks or if I should continue to look elsewhere. Has anyone done this job before? Apparently I'm calling... — read more
Changes coming in FL for E&I, hearing a few shakeup in the AMT space, possibly field account managers or DCSMs. Medical directors on the move. FL was healthplan of the year so they can do what ever is needed to appease the higher ups.
