    Pros

    As healthcare companies go, this one has some kind and smart leadership. They are mission centric focused on the wellbeing of their customers and make sure their employees are supported

    Cons

    Poor compensation and benefits with no ability to schedule time off

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you take on a contract, make sure that contract has in it an ability to adjust to the cost of doing business. Part of that cost is employee compensation.

    Pros

    Wonderful benefits upfront! PTO and sick days. Great vendors!

    Cons

    Strict attendance policy. No room for advancement unless you know someone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more understanding to employees. Treat people like people and not a number or stat. Advance people who work hard, not because their your friend. Stop the retaliation of and employee who reaches out to upper management for clarification.

    Former Employee - Field EAP Consultant in Washington, DC

    I worked at Magellan Health full-time

    Pros

    Compensation seems relatively fair; received a modest raise each year I worked there. Benefits are pretty much standard, yet competitive. Team members I worked with were awesome; always ready to help and collaborate; this was supported and encouraged by the team management personnel, who were also responsive to questions, needs, issues, etc. most of the time.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations at times. Performance reviews and evaluations were rote, rarely helpful or ongoing (I'm the type of person that appreciates the feedback that reviews/evaluations can provide, when done well).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent. There were some times that certain issues or possible organizational changes that would clearly impact individual employees and/or the team that were not discussed openly even though they were not business/proprietary sensitive.
