I am currently working and know from good sources that certain executive leaders have been tapped to meet with the same outside consulting firm to look at duplication of services, low volume programs, low revenue programs, and teams consistently not... — read more

When, where, how many? Anything? Or are we done for now?
running analytics on layoffs
Folks, I got some tough questions: (1) when you get laid off, will your managers likely to recommend themselves to be your reference? If they do, will they mention you are laid off from UHC when talking to your new job HR? (2) Should you tell your... — read more
Have you been able to find a new job yet? Is the job market as bad as I fear it is or are there some available jobs in our industry?
At least 100, more details after meeting tomorrow.
I am with aetna and was wondering if anyone has noticed any changes with the number of forms being sent in those yearly addition, state verification, termination, closing, address change, etc. that dental providers need to fill out. If you are in... — read more
Isn’t that illegal?
I was a part of Optum Insight and was laid off. When asked why I was laid off I was told I was a part of a cost-savings lay-off called LEGO? Not sure what it stands for. I was at Optum for 5 years and employees under me weren’t affected. I’m leaving... — read more
For those employees who have been with the organization for many years and have been through different CEOs, are you finding that you've lost faith in our current leaders? I feel there has been a drastic change over the past few years since our... — read more
No context around why I was laid off. I was offered 2 weeks of severance. A joke.
UHC has developed a heart! They blessed us with a 6 month notice that on 12/31 our jobs are done. I’m feeling overwhelming dedication to them now. Their “choices” show the obvious it’s all I. Who kisses who’s butt, nothing to do with work ethic and... — read more
A lot of teams have people sitting with no work at any given time. If you want to leave for the day you can. Not looking good.
Anybody else feels the same way?
Some United employees going back into the office mid-end of June after HR working so hard to figure out ways to force employees to be back in. Haven’t seen any other people that I know work in different companies go in the office earlier than us... — read more
I heard an email came out to different areas offering employees to take voluntary leave of absence with no pay. Anyone have the details? Seems like a RIF in disguise later for the people who do this.
Curious how many people are actually going to take this survey today :P
UnitedHealth Group started laying offs company wide. Optum and UnitedHealth Care in the United States have been impacted. Many American citizens have lost their jobs and will continue throughout the month of June.
UHG started layoffs back up again. Optum RX had over 200 employees laid off 5/27/2020 and now UHC will have more layoffs 06/2020. The company mole mentioned 06/04 Wednesday. I can’t believe DOL hasn’t gotten involved with this. Lawsuit really... — read more
The last several years have been brutal and things keep getting worse rather than better every day. I know the situation has been exacerbated by the pandemic, but things were bad enough even before that. Will ever come the day when things will go... — read more
It was always bad but now it has reached an unbearable level. What, is it too expensive to pay us unemployment and/or severance so they are determined to make us leave on our own? Is that the final goal here? Well let me tell you, I am not leaving... — read more
Go to the Optum thread to read about the layoffs. Sad
I find it so silly how managers expect us to give them perfect scores yet, managers, give inaccurate scores for their employees. Example: you have an exceptional worker, but that exceptional worker gets 2s and 3s while poor quality workers who are on... — read more
I'm not sure we are looking at more layoffs any time soon. Why would UHG wait for the dust to settle on the whole coronavirus thing when everybody and their grandmother are laying people off right now with no consequences (and certainly no media... — read more
The Vital Signs Replacement Survey is live now and there's a nice, free-form space for you to fill in what would make UHC a better place to work. If you were one of the many on here that knew when each round of layoffs was coming months in... — read more
The corporate has been constantly making effort to have employees go back into the office asap. We all know once upper management goes back, lower levels are going to be pressured to be back in as well. Be responsible united! Working from home has... — read more
UHG will start layoffs soon. Upper management is shifting and the bullying has begun to get people to quit so the company avoids “possible” lawsuits.
I was an account administrator at aetna and it was very bad. This was posted in indeed and I agree with it completely. I am including it here on this post to warn everyone that you may want to avoid this particular location, even if there is... — read more
I am wondering what is going on with the provider data services analyst or dental provider area. Is what is recently going on affecting the dental provider department or facility out there. Do you know of any layoffs recently. Will there be... — read more
Still be grateful! I am still employed at Optum. But I do not rest in peace, the pandemic has and will continue to impact our economy for many years. The last financial crisis I experienced was in 2007. At that time, I also worked for a payer(no... — read more
Really does Dave not have anything better to talk about than Rorys haircut. Good grief get to work.
I am going to vent! I was laid off back in Oct. 2019. I had given 23 long a– years to a company that does not care for its workers! The hourly workers have made the under management who they are. But no thanks from them, just a phone call one... — read more
They just hired more offshore workers. Now that everyone is going back to the office they will start laying off American workers. This place is a pit! Immature management, high school mentality.. claims are not paid properly and lawsuits our... — read more
This should be good to see how many RIFs will come in the following weeks.
If it was any other time I'd be quitting today. The only thing that's keeping me here is the fear that there'll be so many people looking for a job after this is over that finding anything will be ten times harder than usual. I can't tell you how... — read more
UnitedHealth Group (UHC & Optum) will be laying off employees (Aka Reduction in Force or RIF) on Wednesday, 03/04/20 or Thursday, 03/05/20. UHG has being laying off employees for 2 years in waves. They do this so they can void the Warn Act and keep... — read more
I highly doubt we are anywhere near done...
