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
Topics regarding layoffs at UnitedHealth Group Inc.
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
What did they ask you to return? Did they send you any packing materials? How soon does it have to be back?
wondering what the experience is in severance pay if you are laid off at UHC.
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
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.
Fingers crossed, the market is good. I hope we all bounce back quickly. What is your ideal next job?
2019 UnitedHealthcare/Optum Lay-offs: By Week: Oct. 7 - Oct. 11. Please give as much info as you can so we can keep each other informed as it is happening.
There were over 1,000 people let go today.
I called HR and got a copy of my last paystub paid out this Friday. It had my severance and my PTO balance, however it did not have hours for Monday-Wed (I was told on the 2nd, I would be paid through the 16th) anyone else have this issue? Wondering... — read more
They are moving practically all of UHC Payment Integrity over to Optum. The is big change consolidating UHC PI, Optum PI and Equian PI, whom Optum just acquired.
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
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
Optum and UnitedHealthcare employees beware: a huge layoff is coming very, very soon. End of October. The entire enterprise is under a HUGE cost cutting exercise for US EMPLOYEES ONLY!! Their model does not include India nor Philippines, so those... — 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

Mostly seeing higher grade levels
What do we know so far about Wave 2 Layoffs - November 2019?
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
On the open enrollment site, in my message center (red envelope in upper right corner)... I have a COBRA letter dated 11/15/19. Does everyone have this... I hope...?
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.
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
Just an FYI, you will not get your severance payment until 3-4 payroll cycles...... Is this true???
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?
Any updates on layoffs?
11 leaders and workers let go. No notice. Townhall meeting said that while we are growing and more profitable as a company we had to cut payroll to make more. Total robot voice and didnt give a sh–. UHG is outsourcing all functions to overseas... — read more
Are the any updates from anyone on layoffs this week?
Of course there will be more layoffs. And of course the bosses are telling employees there won't be anymore! The company isn't going to tell us there are more layoffs because we would all walk! They will lie to our faces until they stab us in the... — read more
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
Huge layoffs of major players in marketing today.
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
Fidelis just matched my pay with UHC after 14 yrs in Albany. Apply if you;ve been laid off, theyre hiring!
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?
https://bigthink.com/politics-current-affairs/ibm-ageism?rebelltitem=1#rebelltitem1 ProPublica published an extensive report stating that IBM: Denied older workers information the law says they need in order to decide whether they've been... — read more
Has anyone heard of people being laid off in Tennessee?
The layoffs for October, November & March have been in play for at least 4 weeks. Some folks were told that they were being let go ahead of time but it sounds like some managers were not forthcoming. The move to send technical jobs offshore is about... — read more
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.
I am a former employee of UHC. I have friends who still work there, all have 10-20 years with the company. They are being told that there will be layoffs in provider services department very soon. They are being given the opportunity to apply for... — read more
