    Pros

    Molina is a great place to get started in a career. The culture is amazing and people are genuine. Some great talent in the organization. I was pleased with the beginning salary offer.

    Cons

    Training focuses mainly on HR related issues and there are few opportunities for professional development within areas related to current position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    From a middle management perspective, senior leaders would do well to listen to issues that impact their management team. These challenges, however small to a senior leader, grow larger and become significant and overwhelming and negatively impact overall positive outcomes. The philosophy of team work is lacking.

    Pros

    Great opportunities to grow your career, if your manager/leader has the right leadership skills to invest in the talent of their team. CFO values its employees.

    Continue to develop managers and employees.

    Pros

    Great culture, great benefits, full of opportunity to grow and succeed.

    Cons

    IT upper middle and lower management are terrible, condone and practice nepotism to its fullest extent, they also retaliate and get rid of anyone opposing their agendas regardless of the effort that people make to uphold company's standards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of all of them in IT, they are nothing but HOLLYWOOD and as such waste precious company talent and money to line their own and also their friends and family

    Pros

    Great Benefits, decent pay. The president of the company is the coolest guy ever!

    Cons

    After you have received absolutely NO training at all. They take you into a room and evaluate you. They point out everything you have never been taught and make you feel like crap. Once you finally get the hang of things, mind you, because they have finally taught you something by criticizing the crap out of you (Criticism is your technical training). At your next evaluation, they tell you everything you've done wrong again...while you feel like you have helped the world, and have worked very hard....Management can't see it for being so focused on the negative. It is very sad. They seem to promote people based on how easy they are to work with, instead of promoting those who are qualified and really deserve the job. Also, I always feel like, somebody's watchhhhing meeee.......And I have no privacy. Most people I have spoken to are disgusted. It would behoove you to stay to yourself in a place like that. They go ask people if they want to be promoted instead of posting jobs so everyone has a fair shot. It is almost equivalent to the Stepford Wives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote people based upon their knowledge skills and abilities.

    Cons

    Too many cooks in the kitchen

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take 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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Top 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 ManagementAdvice

    You 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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Underpaid 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 ManagementAdvice

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