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 Management

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.

    Pros

    Some really great people work for Molina. It is a great place to work when everyone is working together and tasks don't get bogged down in department politics.

    Cons

    Company talks about work and life balance but sr managers don't practice it, because they let the workload increase without trying to increase staff. Also, accountability is not consistent across the company. Some groups are very accountable and responsive and others are not. This results in the groups where accountability is expected taking on more of the work. There is also a lot of politics. At higher management levels. The IT staff does not respect the state sites, and does not communicate with them on changes.

    Advice to Management

    Improve accountability across all it groups. Implement ITIL processes instead f just taking about it, and learn to meet the needs of your state sites, rather than always try to dictate to them.
