I never thought that we'll see this but we might have layoffs here in Minneapolis.
Was rumored today that operations will be the next area affected by layoffs. I hope that isn't the case.
I was recently told that I'm being "redeployed" and I have 30 days to find another internal job, but no one can give me a straight answer for what happens after 30 days if I don't. Can anyone provide insights? Does that mean I'll be laid off with a... read more
I heard that UHC laid off 750 people last week from the Quality department. Dies anybody know if this is true? It seems like a really large number of people to simply fly under the radar, but I haven't heard anything to indicate that this many people... read more
Yep, check this site under "Latest Posts" where you will find lots of companies desperately trying to hide their layoffs via tactics like you describe. We are in a stealth recession, which the powers that be want very badly to cover up. They will go... read more
Another round of layoffs. They got rid of an entire quality department. Looks like this is a monthly thing now with uhc. They must doing it in increment so the media won't know.
Just was notified that layoffs occurring today
Depending on the state, if a company eliminates jobs, they must notify the Stagte agency that administers unemployment insurance. I suggest we compile a list of those agencies, by state, and share that with each other Let's start with Minnesota New... read more
UHG/UHC/Optum has been laying off in several chunks - apparently monthly - so that they aren't required to report to the media. This provides a false sense of the real picture and the number of jobs lost. I've been on interviews whereby the HR or the... read more
We, the people of this great nation, must insist that our elected officials pass legislation to require companies such as UHG to disclose the number of jobs moved to countries, such as India and the Phillipines Some people think that a few hundreds... read more
The American people have no idea how many jobs UHG and Optum transferred to India In total, thousands of jobs were transferred to India, Hyderabad, Gurgaon This is all about Greed. the more jobs move to India, the more millions senior management... read more
4 people from Optum IT let go today - middle managment
Just went through rating the staff to determine who can be downsized. Breaks my hearts
~15 employees on a single team
Two people have been laid off at our UnitedHealth location yesterday. Has anybody else been impacted by this, or is it an isolated incident? And should we worry that this is just the beginning and there are more layoffs incoming this week? In any... read more
Overall morale is down in the Optum IT area. More experienced workers are being released as young kids out of college are being hired. In Basking Ridge the overall headcount has remained about the same. The corporate position is "that your position... read more
Great coworker on my team (PHSTP Health Coaches) got laid off suddenly yesterday without any of us including her having any warnings. We hadn't heard of any layoffs or that our team would be reduced at all. Pretty shocked as we'd been told how much... read more
No BS, this is really happening. Lost a few people on my team and we never heard a word about upcoming layoffs.
United has outsourced/offshored a lot of positions, this is true. However, the company does offer a wide variety of other positions. I would suggest that if you are in a position that is easy to outsource, take advantage of the company policy that... read more
OptumRx is outsourcing to the Philippines as well as expanding India location while simultaneously ceasing hiring in the US and becoming more strict with employees and easily firing agents. No big layoff yet but clearly headed there. This is just a... read more
I was one of about 50 that held my specific position that got laid off last November (2016).
Unitedhealth started outsourcing years ago. I was there thru it all. Of course it was then kept quite done on the hush hush. I watched and I mean I was physically there seeing my coworkers friend's being let go. I was given the opportunity to go to... read more
No layoffs for sure. I can say only good things about the company. We just hired three new nurses and actively looking for providers in ambulatory care, adult med...
Its not like the TDPers are getting raises to support their new responsibilities. Everyone just gets screwed across the board. Just pure greed is all. I've already heard rumblings about having to hire people back in 6 months because the cuts were too... read more
They are laying more and more people every month, while going through Agile transformation they are optimizing teams and management. Expecting more layoffs in IT
Do you think they will continue to offshore jobs? In the meeting Sam Ho said they sent 900 jobs offshore, so they are still doing it. I guess my question is how much of this offshoring are they going to do - ultimately, they can send all of the jobs... read more
In my dept over 40 were let go and rumour has it more were let go. In my case they chose to keep several people with same skill set who were more recent hires and younger..which has me alarmed. Anyway 11 weeks per year of service and pays PTO... read more
Whoever the a-- clown is that believes that this isn't real is in for a rude awakening. People are being walked out each day, they are replacing older workers with good service records with the younger TDP'ers. This is United's future. Younger... read more
I was laid off on Tuesday morning and work at Optum Technology in Innovation, Research, Development. I am not sure how many were let go but at least twenty. From what I understand no formal announcement has gone out yet and it was a variety of... read more
I am so disgusted and humiliated to see how we are getting thrown out like used paper towels while Optum is applying and renewing H1B visas by telling labor department that they have a shortage of workers. Really?? are you kidding me??? Break rooms... read more
UnitedHealth Group sends out emails to refer your friends while throwing away people left and right each month. Yes, let's send people we like to be treated that way. You can say staffing cuts are just business but UHG are B-B-Billlllions profitable... read more
Salary increases when employed at United Healthcare are minuscule at best. The only time you will be able to self direct your earning potential is upon hiring and when you accepted at your next job. Carrot is dangled, then they change the targets and... read more
Was not let go today but alarm bells have been ringing. Some key Senior Management stepped down about 6 months ago. Since then it has been nothing but red flags, "re-orgs" in Network and Security, IT budgets absolutely slashed, finance auditing... read more
This is true, up to 10% for Optum Technology IT staff is what we have been told, it is probably larger by the sounds of things. They are targeting multiple pay grades from Senior Director on down to Business Analysts. Many of the resources have 5-10+... read more
UHG/Optum will be laying off every month this year to close financial gaps; instead of doing it in one big event to avoid negative press. I suspect when they are done it wouldn't surprise me if the the numbers reach 10k or beyond. Amazing; and of... read more
Regarding Obamacare vs. AHA, yes it can be about Trump and the direction the GOP are taking. UNH removed themselves from the ACA marketplace due to struggling profitability. There is a lot of talk of potentially prolonging the ACA rather than repeal... read more
Employees told IT jobs dropped due to business side cutting spending till they see how healthcare changes due to Trump will affect bottom line.
