They decided to get rid of the game dev team in Chicago. I believe it was about 5 people let go, mostly artists. The remaining people are being reassigned to jobs they'll probably hate.

They probably won't need to do any more layoffs in the Chicago office anymore -- at least not after today's "Annual Enrollment Benefits" presentation. Attrition will probably take care of any head-count reductions they need...

They are changing the Medical Provider network to essentially ONLY include a subset of the Rush and Advocate networks. All other providers are no longer covered. This change ONLY applies to the Chicago location. Other SG locations keep their same network.

The result?

Now in the entire city of Chicago, only 5 hospitals are in-network. One of which is a substance abuse half-way-house in Uptown. Two are in extremely ghetto/dangerous/low-income neighbors -- one west of Midway airport, and the other on the extreme south-side of Chicago. The other two are the Rush and Advocate hospitals.

Need an urgent-care facility? Good luck. There are 3 in the city of Chicago that are in-network. Two of which are in extremely dangerous low-income neighborhoods, and one is on the north side in a little strip-mall.

God help you if you need some kind of urgent care or emergency care in-network during rush-hour. Could be a loooong cab ride to an in-network facility! This city has world-class medical facilities, but our medical plan now excludes those providers. Shameful.

It's one thing to cause a little bit of head aches for a small subset of employees to have to change doctors because of minor tweaks to a network of doctors. But this is something completely different... It is basically forcing everyone into a very small pool of doctors -- and not even close to the best doctors available in Chicago.
