    Pros

    learning about corporate life in healthcare, benefits, good co-workers, has a gym, nicely located, helping people get medical services

    Cons

    long hours and little communication between departments, some not-so knowledgeable upper management. Mirco-management, working half day on holidays or not getting holidays such as presidents day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More communication between departments, upper management and case management. Increase morale to all staff. Listen to concerns across the company.

    Pros

    The company does value its employees and wants to try to reward good performances by the people doing the work

    Cons

    There is a gap in communication within the company as the messages that come from senior management do not always get put into action by lower-level management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get everyone on the same page so that all are treated fairly

    Pros

    Molina offers full benefits, 401-k and stock options. There's also an onsite fitness center and cafeteria. Molina encourages people to move around within the company and offers opportunities for employees to shadow other departments. Compensation appears to be fair and competitive.

    Cons

    There is a tremendous amount of micro-management in the department I currently work in. If you're a competent professional, you'll find this very difficult to deal with. To be fair, this may not be the way other departments operate. The office environment consists of cubicles. They feel confining and do nothing to mitigate noise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The huge amount of turnover in my department should send a loud, clear message. Stop micro-managing and start trusting the people you hired to do the job.

    I have been working at Molina Healthcare full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    New Hires are sent to learn about the company at HQ in Long Beach, Calif.
    Fair compensation (but I understand new hires make more than the experienced workers who have been there a while) great Benefits

    Cons

    training and expectations are not practical, not realistic, not communicated well because everyone does things differently. No work life balance to stay compliant with documentation you have to work overtime and weekends to catch up.. No communication or support from supervisor. high turnover of staff and nobody seems to care if you stay or quit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward long time employees and support new employees. The Molinas should go undercover to see how they can better fix their company.
