    Great company and people.

    Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee) Reston, VA

    ProsI started working as a part time pharmacy technician with while still in college. My supervisor was very understanding when it came to school responsibilities and not only allowed me a fairly versatile schedule, but was also very encouraging. Upon graduation I was offered a full time job in a difficult economy. They see their employees as an important investment and disperse their profits down the ladder. They offer great health benefits, retirement accounts, ESPP, discounts, and rewards.

    ConsAs can be expected, some supervisors can have some negative qualities, but if brought up to them or their supervisor, they will take steps to better the working environment.

    Since Molina Healthcare is a publicly traded company, sometimes daily activities can be profit driven, especially towards the end of fiscal periods. This can add stress to life, but is offset by the fact that they offer ESPP.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the family-driven management style.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake a look at how your management is running your company. Just because they are hitting numbers doesn't mean they are treating your staff they way they deserve to be treated.

    Decent job, but problems working with Corporate office

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood Values, no micro-managing. Some employees are very talented and many are very nice people. The office location is great.

    ConsTop management are too self-involved. They don't care too much about their reports - don't want any details about the work their reports actually do, just "get it done".

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to be more involved with the people who work under you. There also needs to be some structure and agreement about what corporate office is responsible for and what the plan level is responsible for. Too many tasks and responsibilities get pushed down to the plan level without notice or preparation.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Working here for 2 years

    API (Current Employee) Long Beach, CA

    ProsGood working offices. Supervisor support when needed. Good place to start your career to learn and earn experience.

    ConsUnderpaid in some cases. They pay you low but expect you work much more than the level they advertised in job posts. They take advantage of your capabilities to do complicated work as much as they can without thinking how to have a corespondent compensation for these!!! As a result, good employees have to leave for better opportunities. Second, they refuse to pay you overtime even though they know you have to work overtime to complete their assignments. Finally you have to take work home without pay if you want not to look bad in front of them, which will affect your humble benefits. Stupid coaching and training system which just creates un-realistic imagination to fill in the coaching forms, cost time, money, create unnecessary pressure, but doesn't bring any effectiveness and improvements.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease think about your employees. If they can do the jobs which nobody in the department can, please consider a fair compensation for them.

    Print and Fulfillment department dissolved and outsourced

    Print and Fulfillment Specialist (Current Employee) Bothell, WA

    ProsThere were some extremely experienced team members who were able to handle huge challenges, and I learned a lot from them in the year I was there.

    ConsIn 2014 it was decided to dissolve the in-house print and fulfillment department and outsource it. So as of summer 2014, it simply doesn't exist.
    One of the problems the department had was a cliquish attitude. There was a high school-style "in" group, which got old.
    Another issue was the lack of understanding (or willingness to understand) the time needed to produce custom printed materials on the part of the other offices in the company. There was also a great deal of disorganization. (Perhaps that will be improved on by the vendor who is taking over the department.)

    Advice to Senior ManagementSet up an online materials request web site, with requester profiles which include their department, what they have ordered in the past, and subscriptions to materials they'd like to order in the future - so they'll get a 'ping' when someone else in their office places an order for something, they can jump in and order at the same time. Getting a small order for something, followed a week later by another small request for the same thing, is inefficient and not cost effective.
