    I have been working at Molina Healthcare full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I've met some really nice people and made a couple of life long friends, but that's it.

    Cons

    If you are an independent thinker with an opinion and a brain, this place ISN'T for you. If you are a "yes" person and all you care about is coming to work and hiding, this place is for you. You either follow along with the brain washing that they try to instill in you, under the guise of the "Molina culture", or else you are in trouble. It's the Molina way or the highway. If you are a friend of Mario or John Molina, you are protected. If you're not, beware. They have hired so many of their friends, and if you cross one of those people, you are done for.

    Best advice, look elsewhere. I am.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Either sell the company and do your employees and members a favors, or bring in knowledgeable people to run the company. Take a look at your competitors. None of them have an M.D. as their CEO. They are all run by business people. Also, John Molina, the CFO, has a J.D. and not an MBA. Really, a lawyer is the CFO, who hasn't practiced law a day in his life. According to many people, as the founder C. David Molina was nearing the end of his life, he begged them to not let John run the company. He must be turning in his grave.

    Pros

    If you live nearby; this is a pro. If you happen to be one of the lucky ones working a remote position: this is a pro. If you are related to someone in management; you will be blessed beyond believe because you will not be required to have any practical experience or education in order to work here.

    Cons

    Lack of competent management, operates as if it's still a small company and uses this excuse as a reason to function poorly, nepotism to the degree that I have never seen before, people are not qualified for the positions in which they hold, lack of structure, higher performers get less compensation than their under-performing colleagues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up. Hire people that have experience in their profession and can affect change and get the company running smoothly. Too much hiring over the past few years. Take the time to evaluate if employees are giving you an honest day's work before you hire more. You preach good values, but you don't follow them.

    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.

    I worked at Molina Healthcare full-time (more than 3 years)

    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 a 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.
