    I have been working at Molina Healthcare full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Mission to serve the low income population.

    Cons

    Promotions are not based on performance. Managers will keep employees who can never get their work done, constantly show up late to work, and submit assignments with poor quality and errors for political reasons. Directors will convert consultants/temps to full time employees regardless of how they perform.

    If you work at the Press Telegram or Meeker Baker building in Long Beach, you will have to park across the street in a public parking lot where people break into your cars and urinate inside the lot. A couple of instances have occurred where employees have been assaulted or have had their bikes stolen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care a little bit more about the safety of your employees. I'd like to be able to walk to my car after a long day of work without having to worry about someone stealing my laptop or seeing that my car has been broken into.

    Pros

    Medical benefits, 401 k, great people to work with for the most part. Vacation time is decent. Good corporate values but only on paper because they are not followed.

    Cons

    Employees are treated like children. Management change the rules as they please, sometimes daily and are not held accountable for their actions. Raises are a joke. Its hard to move within the company, it's about who you know. Senior management only cares about the bottom line and not about their members. Overall morale is low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Minimize the favoritism and hire good line managers that will make a difference.

    I worked at Molina Healthcare full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The small staff are hard-working and task-focused. The new office supervisor was wonderful. We were a great team.

    Cons

    Sick leave & vacation leave are lumped together, so if you want to plan a vacation or a little time off, just don't get sick & stay out. So stressful. No opportunities for promotion. Those great benefits & perks? Your paying for it. Anthem BCBS covers only the basics & you can rack up huge medical bills before you know it. All management (but 1 person) are out of state. Communication is by phone, email (a 'ton' every day!) & IM. Very impersonal & it was easy for KL & AC to be rude & demeaning when not face-to-face. Teamwork was not encouraged. If one employee wanted to help another employee, I was told "no, it's not your job". I know that Molina is an awesome company. But the Tallahassee Drug Rebate program is poorly managed, The turn-over rate is evidence. I can't imagine Dr. Molina would ever treat his staff this way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should treat staff as educated, hard-working and dedicated. You reap what you sow. I was interviewed over the phone. One of the questions asked was "What do you expect from management". My answer was, "Appreciation for a job well-done". After they thought I was no longer on the phone, I heard KL tell JB, "I hope I don't have to send her flowers every week". My instincts told me to withdraw my resume. But I wanted to learn new skills. The very first day on the job it was obvious that the staff & supervisor were miserable & they had no reservations about verbalizing this to me. I thought that they were just young & ungrateful & I would make my own decision. It was the most torturous 20 months of my life.

    Why does Molina block emails?

    I have been working at Molina Healthcare

    Pros

    Don't know, maybe health benefits, stock options, they say it feels like a mom and pop company.

    Cons

    I know a lot of companies want to play the negotiation game when interviewing, but Molina wants you to ask upfront before your interview (most companies frown on this). I guess my email was blacked because I asked about the salary at my second interview and not prior.

    Cons

    Two-faced managers, supervisors who bully, unethical and toxic environment. I wouldn't wish Molina on my worst enemy. Worst work-life balance I've ever had the displeasure to experience. Getting the hell out of there was done to save my life. A bunch of unqualified, back-stabbing hypocrites.

    Pros

    Good Benefits, good vacation and flexible time

    Cons

    Terrible management who get rewarded through connection. Executives awarded themselves and the submissive untalented staffs with promotion and raised. Promotion does not reflect the employee capacity. It rewards the employee if he/she is willing to suck it up and blindly obey the stupid, irrational behavior and bad decision of their superior.

    If you are friend with the right people, you will be promoted regardless of your dismal performance.
    Too many title with little to show for

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward and promote people with real talent

    Hire people with true industrial and enterprise experience.

    Listen to employees and try to implement real changes and just not lip services
