I have been working at Magellan Health full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

PTO and benefits are good. Very flexible on working hours and working from home. There is room for advancement within the company.

Cons

Salary seems to be lower than current standards. Often see new hires with less exprience being brought in at a high pay level. I have work here for 13 years and raises are not great.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Middle management needs to be more skilled in their job. There is a lot of problems with communications with in departments and much time and resources are wasted.

    I have been working at Magellan Health full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good benefits. Salary is under the average stated on glassdoor for comparable positions at other employers. Excellent time off allotment from the start and flexible work environment. Some opportunity for telecommuting if your job responsibilities permit that to occur.

    Cons

    Some in senior management roles have excellent people-leadership skills, others will throw you under the bus without hesitation. Employees perceived as not closely aligned with the agenda of a manager or a manager's favored staff will be disregarded. Corporate frequently pushes out new initiatives, does not properly fund support for new contracts and management poorly executes what corporate thrusts upon them, resulting in a chaotic and stressful work for front-line employees who have to clean up the resulting mess.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strive to lead the excellent and knowledgeable employees you have and listen to them without forcing your own personal agenda. Identify the senior management who do not have effective people-leadership skills and provide them with mentors or other resources to understand their role and tools to obtain the skills needed to lead others. Get rid of the many senior-level management who are on a self-glorifying power trip and unwilling to learn to effectively lead people. Admit when a new initiative didn't go quite the way it was intended to go, and solicit comments and suggestions directly from front-line employees.
