    Pros

    Offer good benefits. Do offer training and promote from within. If you conform to 'their' way, you can go far.

    Cons

    Leadership is ineffective. There is blatant discrimination throughout the company. The morale of Maine employees is at an all time low, rather than trying to improve it, they just ignore it. Good employees are leaving. HR representation is a joke. Molina does not care about its employees, their only focus is on money. They literally drove me out with a bully boss and created a hostile environment for everyone in my department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time listening to your employees and follow through with their complaints.

    Pros

    Co-workers and middle management care about the quality of the work - their own and the mission of the company.

    Cons

    Corporate is out of touch with the state health plans. Genuine and compentent executives are few and far between. Decisions are made based on personal agendas and nepotism rather than on sound business.

    Pros

    They have a great potential to grow under Obama care.

    Cons

    Corruption at all levels especially in IT department. The top management all know each other and were transplants from another organization. They take bribes from vendors who take them to extravagant events in return for favors. Shame for a company that provides Medicaid for under privileged folks who live under the poverty line and is funded by the State.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to the owners - this is your company, take charge and clean it up.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Columbus, OH

    Pros

    Working with a lot of good people who deserve better than this.

    Cons

    The most incompetent management I have ever worked for.They are rude,phoney backstabbers who would sell their own mother or even eat their young just to get ahead.They treat their underlings like dirt on their shoes.They make job rules and guidelines up as they go along with the half-hearted intent to make things "easier" for us .But,never having done our job,they dont understand what will work and what wont,make the job harder and refuse to listen to suggestions or constructive criticism.Speak up or question anything and you are walked to the door.I have worked in management many years and am in absolute awe of the incompetence I see every day.Its a shame,really,as this is not what our company founder,Dr. Molina,would have ever wanted as we are soo off track from his mission to serve the underserved population.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave..and let the company hire people who have a clue what they are doing and who actually CARE about what they are doing and not just a paycheck or how being a supervisor or manager at Molina might look on a resume.

    Pros

    National company with a good client base.

    Cons

    Some of the health plans, not all have management staff who are not people oriented and judge individuals on how well they like you and not by the quality of your work.

    Pros

    IT folks have flexible schedules. Most employees have the same gripes even though they don't unify against the oppressors.

    Cons

    Local management is horrible- the ones running the show have little to no formal management education. The morale is horrid, local management tries to skim the pot as much as possible. Several HR violations here and nothing gets done.
    Management has employees scared to do anything but work- hitleristic dress code and management styles here.
    Lots of buddy system promotions and job offerings. If you don't suck up to the big dogs you won't last long here.
    Building is a joke and needs to be overhauled severely.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the managers in Idaho and start over, or at the very least send all of these clowns to training so that this site isn't a laughing stock of other MMS sites.

    Do not recommend HCS department at Doral, FL

    • Comp & Benefits

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Benefits are excellent, VTO opportunity, great location, good work environment except in HCS department, great growing coming up, summer batch is great, Christmas party is awesome, tuition reimbursement up to $2500 for employees and family is good, life insurance without cost is included in the benefits

    Cons

    HCS department at Miami, FL is collapsing, 20 employees decided to left or demote including 2 HCS managers, the rest of the employees are looking to go. Employees in that department cannot even wear perfume, management with lack of professional skills, micromanaging everybody, overwhelming old employees with work because the new ones are so lack of knowledge about the work and the training is horrible. Professional growing equal zero, supervisors that don't have idea about the clinical operation of the department. HCS department is being bullied and nobody pay attention to that

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please, pay attention to the employees complaints, HCS department is under oppressive and unprofessional management, old and knowledgeable employees deserve to advance to better positions, new employees need to be carefully selected and correctly trained

    Pros

    Nice people but that doesn't get the work done. Company philosophy is nice but untrue.

    Cons

    Promotions based on NATIONALITY/FRIEND OF MOLINA FAMILY not experience. CLUELESS about industry, competitors, how to get from A to Z.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    THE BONUS AND MERITS NEVER EQUALS WHAT HAS BEEN PROMISED except for the Molina Family & Friends.

    Use this company as a stepping stone to move on to bigger and better things like Aetna, United Health, Anthem.

    Micro Management and Nepotism is Alive and Well

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Columbus, OH
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Columbus, OH

    Pros

    Great Benefits and Decent Pay

    Cons

    Incompetent management- many of them are under qualified and rule with intimidation and micro management. If you are a mediocre employee with no college and can kiss up to current management this is your paradise.
    Upper Management encourages managers to be friends with their subordinates which allows for favoritism. Molina Healthcare proudly proclaims that they encourage friendships between managers and their direct reports.
    HR- You tell them about a problem and they go behind your back to your manager and tattle tale on you. Evidently they have never heard about confidentiality.
    No work life balance especially if you are "salaried" they expect you to work constantly 50-60 hours a week and give up your weekends too in order to meet their unrealistic ideals.
    Upper Management- Some of these people are the bottom of the barrel quality but they wear the right clothes and drive the right car so they get the job.
    I was told that this company was all about family......dysfunctional family!
    Upper Management doesn't even try to keep good employees when asked Upper Management will deny this every time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It’s not professional to encourage friendships between managers and their direct reports.
    Nix the unrealistic expectations and micromanagement on your employees. Any self-respecting adult should not need a baby sitter.
    Promote people who are hard workers and have experience and an education instead of some admin assistant that went out to happy hour with their manager/director and suddenly climbed the ladder. There are many well educated and experienced employees on staff but instead these people are "worked to death" and eventually leave to take a pay cut or no job at all.
    HR- Keep things confidential and quit back stabbing employees who confide in you.
