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
Topics regarding layoffs at UnitedHealth Group Inc.
Wondering what will happen with everyone if Empire plan chooses another company. Layoffs or put In other positions within the company.
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
A quick survey here for those have been laid off from UHG/UHC/OPTUM: what is your salary expectation for your next job? Inline/Same as my previous job is good enough, not greedy I am taking layoff as an opportunity and I am asking for... — 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?
What have people heard for the employee survey results? We had negative responses for UHG being a great place to recommend to others. Not surprised! Being asked for why that is, what can be done better but it’s really up to top leadership to change... — read more
If you still have Bravo points you can still redeem..call here 1-844-732-5501
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
It's better to be aware of what's going on so you can start making a plan. I wish I knew about this site before my layoff wave. I was completely surprised when I was let go and had no idea they'd been laying off large numbers of employees each... — read more
At least 100, more details after meeting tomorrow.
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
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
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

When, where, how many? Anything? Or are we done for now?
No context around why I was laid off. I was offered 2 weeks of severance. A joke.
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 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
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
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.
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
Curious how many people are actually going to take this survey today :P
Hi all, what phone number are we supposed to list on our unemployment application if we've been laid off by UnitedHealthcare? My paperwork seems to have disappeared and I would really appreciate a response.
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
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
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.
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
Does anyone have any idea what departments will be hit tomorrow?
Will there be even more cuts today?
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.
Go to the Optum thread to read about the layoffs. Sad
Really does Dave not have anything better to talk about than Rorys haircut. Good grief get to work.
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
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
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
Don't see UHG CEO taking any pay cut or increasing pay for front line workers. Big 10 mil donations by the corporation is money made off the backs of the employees...those still there and those let go.
Oh, how I know all of this! I was with the company for 17 years. I started in claims, adjustments all on UNET, Customer Advocate and then Reporting for over 12 years. As soon as they hired the new woman, cannot remember her name now all I heard... — read more
