    Current Employee - Senior Care Manager in Saint Louis, MO
    Current Employee - Senior Care Manager in Saint Louis, MO

    I have been working at Magellan Health full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Feel like I'm making a difference. Good pay for social services field. Good benefits. Great relationships are built. There is a good value system and the St. Louis office makes a point of giving back. Good succession planning program. Flexible regarding needing to take time off.

    Cons

    No opportunity for growth unless you are part of the "in" crowd. Promotion is based more on personal preference rather than ability to lead. Thus, some of the middle management lacks good management skills and sometimes good work ethic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promotion should be more objective and less subjective. Based on ability to lead, quality of work and experience.

    Pros

    As healthcare companies go, this one has some kind and smart leadership. They are mission centric focused on the wellbeing of their customers and make sure their employees are supported

    Cons

    Poor compensation and benefits with no ability to schedule time off

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you take on a contract, make sure that contract has in it an ability to adjust to the cost of doing business. Part of that cost is employee compensation.

    Former full-time employee for approximately 3 years.

    Former Employee - Field EAP Consultant in Washington, DC
    Former Employee - Field EAP Consultant in Washington, DC

    I worked at Magellan Health full-time

    Pros

    Compensation seems relatively fair; received a modest raise each year I worked there. Benefits are pretty much standard, yet competitive. Team members I worked with were awesome; always ready to help and collaborate; this was supported and encouraged by the team management personnel, who were also responsive to questions, needs, issues, etc. most of the time.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations at times. Performance reviews and evaluations were rote, rarely helpful or ongoing (I'm the type of person that appreciates the feedback that reviews/evaluations can provide, when done well).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent. There were some times that certain issues or possible organizational changes that would clearly impact individual employees and/or the team that were not discussed openly even though they were not business/proprietary sensitive.

    Pros

    Gaining respect from employees. Being accepted for what you know. Job I had didn't need much training although there were classes that I could have taken if someone showed the way..

    Cons

    Needs to show a little kindness from senior mgt towards employees being laid off. Acknowledge work experience better.
