    Pros

    Possible to work from home if you kiss up to managers.

    Cons

    Rob you of your last paycheck.
    Demand company training be done on own time.
    Penalize good employees for taking care of patients.
    Managers are sexist, they hate men.
    Everything is timed, even alotted bathroom time. If you exceed what they alotted for number 1 and 2 you get nasty IM's.
    The managers lie to everyone about everything.
    Most toxic work environment I've ever worked in.

    Advice to Management

    Replace this management team. Losing very good Nurses as a result of their ineptitude.

    Laid Back and Friendly and there is no smoking so there are no cigarette queens smoking outside the building when you walk in so that is nice and the parking is decent

    Cons

    Culture changes due to ObamaCare and more focus on new business which means brining in outsiders who have different corporate backrgounds

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    good salary for jobs in behavioral health or physical health

    Cons

    Current staff say Magellan these days often feels like a rudderless ship without a leader.
    As the switch to Magellan Complete Care started to come together over the summer, incoming leadership wanted the new team to oversee health plan's makeover instead of former staff. Current leadership in operations and leadership on the health services side engaged in a tug of war over the plan until it cost the company hundreds of thousands of dollars.
    The in-house bickering meant that important decisions, became frantic, eleventh-hour decisions. The company's staff is still largely comprised of employees who resent the new hierarchical structure. Staff have expressed frustration that seemingly mundane decisions are filtered through an exec gantlet.
    Costs to the company could have been managed if the reshuffling hadn’t produced such a chaotic work environment. But the new organizational structure put into effect has made morale at Magellan very low.

    Advice to Management

    work with communicating with staff as well as learning staff actualy duties.

    Pros

    Feel like I'm making a difference. Good pay for social services field. Good benefits. Great relationships are built. There is a good value system and the St. Louis office makes a point of giving back. Good succession planning program. Flexible regarding needing to take time off.

    Cons

    No opportunity for growth unless you are part of the "in" crowd. Promotion is based more on personal preference rather than ability to lead. Thus, some of the middle management lacks good management skills and sometimes good work ethic.

    Advice to Management

    Promotion should be more objective and less subjective. Based on ability to lead, quality of work and experience.

    Pros

    Associates were great to work with.
    Medical benefits we good, but dental was horrible
    Very flexible with respect to telecommuting
    A handful of new executives are trying to refresh the organization

    Cons

    Horrible culture - executive team fosters an environment of distrust. Constant fighting / backstabbing amongst leaders (EVP and SVP level) which is very evident to lower level management.
    Incredible levels of micromanagement within the executive team - they are not willing to let their leaders lead.
    Product offering is not competitive

    Advice to Management

    Continue to shed your executive team of those from years past - they are roadblocks and promote the poor culture of the company.

    Pros

    Rewarding work with all branches of the military- includes positions with schools, bases, worldwide.

    Cons

    For our sector the total paid time off is only 7 days a YEAR total! Includes total time to be used for Holidays, Vacation and sick leave. We have 7 only to use for all three area.

    Advice to Management

    Please evaluate the strain of the actual work and think of these employees only being allowed 7 days per calendar year to use for any vacation, illness, or holiday. This feels peculiar- like the dark ages. The work is very taxing and these employees absolutely need time to regenerate.
