    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.

    Pros

    The health benefits are good. If you happen to get a good supervisor, you will be in luck.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, I worked for one of the call centers so the environment was pretty abysmal.

    Pros

    Gaining respect from employees. Being accepted for what you know. Job I had didn't need much training although there were classes that I could have taken if someone showed the way..

    Cons

    Needs to show a little kindness from senior mgt towards employees being laid off. Acknowledge work experience better.

    I worked at Magellan Health full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Employees are treated well, benefits OK. Work life balance was adequate.

    Cons

    Office culture was a bit "cliquish" Company did not offer many opportunities for advancement. It seemed like the same people were always being promoted or considered for advancement opportunities while others likely qualified were not even considered unless they were "friends" with management. Certain positions were valued more than others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement a more objective system for promoting/identifying internal talent.

    I worked at Magellan Health full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There were many people who worked there for many years who had a lot of knowledge. Also, there was a lot of effort put in to keep the energy and morale high.

    Cons

    Often co-workers were too busy on phones to help you when you needed help with clinical case questions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needed to stay focus on a strategy, it changed too often and care managers were caught in the middle. Unfortunately, this location is no longer open.

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

    Pros

    I have found that Magellan really treats 'work/life' balance with the highest priority. It is an open culture with emphasis on continued learning with ample opportunity for advancement.

    Cons

    The company has offices all over the country with a large 'work-at-home' population. For some, the lack of face-to-face interaction can be a challenge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to keep an open information environment so all employees feel a part of Magellan success.
