Employee Surveys

The employee surveys are being sent out to be completed despite all these layoffs. Yet I didn’t hear or see any improvements from the last survey. So what is the point? Are the surveys actually kept confidential or do they use them to tag you for... —  read more

These layoffs were handled in a sneaky way

I'm still employed but how the company has handled these layoffs is sneaky. One of my coworkers was laid off while she was on PTO! Not to mention this has occurred shortly before the holiday season. The PTO accrual is generous but folks will lose... —  read more

Not trying to be rude but...

So many people on here sound entitled. No job is ever safe in corporate America. You should all be blessed to even have the opportunity and be thankful to be able to work. Some people are mentally/physically disabled who cannot. Be positive. Having... —  read more

Deleted post

Why are you deleting posts? There was one from a pharmacist in Housecalls and we were encouraging him. Now his post is gone. This is not right. We should see all posts. Good or bad.

Which departments could potentially merge?

I believe, with this amount of layoffs, and the amount of work that is left for those who do stay, that there is a larger organizational restructure in store, possibly before the end of the year ( I imagine they will want to get this over with before... —  read more

Any indication what office got hit the hardest?

It’s obvious this is going down in multiple offices and in different locations, so I imagine it’s hard to tell. I would appreciate if people posted numbers of people that got laid off at their location. In that way, maybe we could paint a more clear... —  read more

UHG/Optum Monthly Layoffs

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

This is ridiculous

Wow, does media have its priorities skewed. Everybody and their aunt are talking about the $60 billion in revenue and the rise of UnitedHealth's share price as a result. How many do you think are mentioning the layoffs that have just happened - and... —  read more

Any layoff this week?

Has anything been confirmed, or are there any rumors? This week started quietly, at least as my location is concerned. For me, it’s even a little too quiet.

Humana Layoffs

Folks: For those who continuously comment on UHG and Optum layoffs, take a look at Humana. They are laying off hundreds of people very soon too, for nearly the exact same reasons. This is the industry we are in, high risk and low reward. Those... —  read more

Housecalls

Ok, so I currently work for housecalls, right? And for the past few weeks, we have been sent home early, and been low on records. I was wondering if this is a sign of an impending layoff for us as well?

May had a huge layoff

UHG laid off 200 people in the Month of May. Currently still looking for work. When you have a ton of experience it seems to be harder to find something to fit in to. Since when should we worry about interviewing again. This has been stressful for so... —  read more

Open enrollment

I can’t be the only one who thinks it’s strange that open enrollment started yesterday and not so much as a peep about it. I happened to check and if I do not enroll by the end of the offering period I would be dropped from all benefits. Maybe... —  read more

Folks who were laid off - where are you now?

Curious to know where the folks who were laid off came from (area/dept) and where they are working now. Did you find work in a related field? Better insurance company? Any advise on good companies to apply for?

Optum USRN academy

Looks like optum has started its own academy for RNs to do clinical services. They will get the nurses assistance , trained and pass the Nclex. Wow. Talk about greed. All while spewing the same old rhetoric.
