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
Topics regarding layoffs at UnitedHealth Group Inc.
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
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
For those who got laid off, what happened with your earned PTO hours? Does the company pay you back those hours or you completely lose them?
At first I thought I was imagining it because, objectively, I am not a bad worker nor am I causing problems, however, I see that here on the forum someone mentioned that they've had such an experience. They’re doing everything to make me quit on... — read more
What does it say about a company when its employees are constantly waiting for the next round of layoffs and hoping/praying that they’ll be picked? Every time layoffs happen I always hear how “lucky” those people impacted are. UHG has become such a... — read more
I quit during the pandemic. It was nice to give them a big F U! I thought I would leave and be free of the emotional distress. It’s taken me months to recover and I didn’t even know I needed time. Today, I can’t handle stress. I can’t do... — read more
What was the worst department you worked for or worked with and why? You’re welcome to be as specific or vague as you like.
The big perk is it's a US work from home and I know I'll be doing at least 2 long distance moves in the next 5 years. I was also told there's some installation for internet which seems odd. I just hope moving won't be difficult since the job... — read more
I thought they were done with layoffs this year but they continue to trickle in. I would not recommend this company.
I left UHG 3 months ago thinking I could have a fresh start with another company. I thought the two weeks off prior to starting with my current company was all I needed to decompress from the emotional and mental exhaustion that I had endured over... — read more
What usually happens with companies that were acquired by UHG? Are layoffs imminent? Anyone can share their experience
I have noticed that management are starting to nitpick about everything. Including how long an employee is on the phone trying to help their members. The neverending emails and policy changes daily. I really think they are trying to stress their... — read more
I am going to bet that UHG will start laying off USA workers and hiring OffShore due the Corporate Tax increase.
The worse the company treats the employees, the more layoffs we have, the higher the stock gets. I understand that layoffs and reductions in benefits reduce costs - something investors love - but employees are those who are providing the services... — read more
Never in my life have I heard such crying. Grow up, no wonder you hate your jobs lmao. Bunch of minions with no control over your lives.
My position was eliminated April 2021. I had just received an exceeds expectations performance review and a nice raise only to be blindsided 2 months later with a layoff. Why is the company letting go of an employee who performs well? Doesn’t make... — read more
I haven't heard anything about more layoffs any time soon, this is not about that. I'm curious in general about how the whole process plays out just to know what to expect in case I'm affected sometime in the future. I'm interested in details about... — read more
I think I have always been very dedicated to my job. I loved what I was doing and I could never have imagined doing any other job. However, lately I’ve really struggled with motivation for doing my work here. I thought I was starting to hate my... — read more
I’ve been with the company for about 5 years and I’m looking at a few open positions to apply to here. Does anyone know if the entire application process is the same for internal candidates as for external ones? I live in a state where recreational... — read more
UnitedHealth Group is notorious for laying off in small chunks so April, 2021 they will be letting small groups go so that the public is not alerted and they don't have to report it to DOL.
Seeing how this is the last week in April is anyone aware of more layoffs?
At most of the companies experience gained by years spent there is valued and rewarded by the leadership. Not here. The longer you’ve been here the bigger the chance of you being laid off with no warning. They don’t see experience, all they see is... — read more
We’ve never been told that our manager can see our screen or that our keystrokes are being monitored, but recently my manager has made strange comments to me about my monitor use and my scrolling that makes me think they can see my screen. Can... — read more
I’m still safe but I don’t care if they let me know about the layoff very soon or at the end of the month. I have been preparing for a long time because it is clear that the company is slowly sinking. A colleague who was convinced that his position... — read more
who's brain child thought that a team of less than 10 can handle all groups in a region? sales and account management is now just sales which shows us all this company only cares about making promises to secure a new sale then pointing fingers at... — read more
I've been applying non stop to other positions for months now and I haven't even gotten an interview just always a no. In the last year in the appeals dept I only know of 1 person moving out of the dept to another position. Anyone know if it's just... — read more
I know that HR is not there only because of the employees, but because of the company, but I still have a few minor problems in my relationship with a colleague that I can’t solve. I have a feeling that even though the person who is causing the... — read more
In my department there is a manager who shows extreme favoritism towards certain coworkers. It's obvious that we are not treated equally. It’s pretty unsettling to watch this on a daily basis. I know I should keep my head down and just keep quiet and... — read more
To offset any bad UES scores I may get I have been making sure to ask members to hold for the survey. I am working harder and trying to be the best that I can be but I've noticed that even though I am getting way more UES scores my overall score is... — read more
The past couple of weeks have had many managers and supervisors eliminated to "focus" more on consumer needs??? Without a middle layer of leaders between the workers and the VPs, you have no source close to the daily strife so how are these... — read more
UHG offered me $16 per hour and the job is fully remote. I wanted to ask on this board to see if I should continue with this job and start in 2 weeks or if I should continue to look elsewhere. Has anyone done this job before? Apparently I'm calling... — read more
What is up with this pathetic yearly incentive percentage raises? I got a high 4 on my review and got a mere 1.5% which was not even a dent in my hourly pay. Any body else?
work the job to learn as much as you can while you can watch for other jobs. You can decide to stay or go after a while ... listen to your gut and weigh that against your other life commitments. A retail worker typically makes $ 11 / hr and has to... — read more
I remember years ago our Hooksett site had such terrible employee engagement scores they brought in someone to help management (me at the time) if there was ever talk of unionization. It never came up and over the years engagement improved. I wonder... — read more
Any word on potential reorg in E&I small business? I fear the worst. Any info would be greatly appreciated. I have a young family, and the tiny severance UHC offers wouldn’t be enough to stay afloat.
Changes coming in FL for E&I, hearing a few shakeup in the AMT space, possibly field account managers or DCSMs. Medical directors on the move. FL was healthplan of the year so they can do what ever is needed to appease the higher ups.
I have my review tomorrow. How are peoples bonuses looking?
What are the chances that some of the people who were laid off during the pandemic will be called back once the situation settles a bit? With the economy the way it is, plenty of us haven't been able to find new jobs yet. I actually know just one... — read more
