    Okay place to receive a pay chek. It paid the bills.

    The management team is unfair and allow Spanish speaking all day among themselves not work related.

    Pros

    The company does value its employees and wants to try to reward good performances by the people doing the work

    Cons

    There is a gap in communication within the company as the messages that come from senior management do not always get put into action by lower-level management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Molina Healthcare full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is decent and that is all.

    Cons

    You have to be in the leadership click or at least they need to like you or your doomed. Very unexperienced leadership when it comes to managing a team. No involvement with employees unless they like you. Gossip Gossip Gossip. No training they just throw you in there. They hire you for one position and put you in another one which a kid can do. Once again if you are not part of the leadership click then you will get nothing and go nowhere in this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out a different leadership team because the one you have is useless. The Molinas need to really take a look at what is really going on and do something quick because you talk about members are the # 1 priority, well look at the type of people that are your members. Leadership is more concerned about numbers vs. helping people who need help and they wonder why people are going to other health plans. This is why it should not be about how many members are dis enrolling first figure out a way to keep them. Hold their hand not hurry them off the phone. Take a look at your leadership Dr. Molina. To many physicians want to cancel contract with Molina, I wonder why. Step it up a bit. No bonus this year I wonder why.

    Pros

    learning about corporate life in healthcare, benefits, good co-workers, has a gym, nicely located, helping people get medical services

    Cons

    long hours and little communication between departments, some not-so knowledgeable upper management. Mirco-management, working half day on holidays or not getting holidays such as presidents day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More communication between departments, upper management and case management. Increase morale to all staff. Listen to concerns across the company.

    Pros

    If you are fresh out of college this is the place for you. Spend 1-3years here and leave quickly. Run like the wind

    Cons

    Management is chosen by friends and relatives. Nepotism is pivotal here. This is the place of the hypocrites. Management will hire friends to do nothing but collect a paycheck and harass and bully subordinates. Management is less qualified than subordinates. Many subordinates are well educated. There is zero room for upward mobility here. Some departments are good and want to break silohs. Most don't like change and management does not like to accountability for projects and will throw other departments under the bus, as well as subordinates. Bullying is common here, as well eve to your last day on the job. If you people in management that can barely speak a word of English. English is the officially language spoken amongst colleagues here. So how are these folks hired. Benefits are not great. Do yourself a favor and avoid this place

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get degrees and then maybe we'll take you seriously. Stop hiring your family and friend, and then maybe we'll take you seriously.

    Pros

    I've met some really nice people and made a couple of life long friends, but that's it.

    Cons

    If you are an independent thinker with an opinion and a brain, this place ISN'T for you. If you are a "yes" person and all you care about is coming to work and hiding, this place is for you. You either follow along with the brain washing that they try to instill in you, under the guise of the "Molina culture", or else you are in trouble. It's the Molina way or the highway. If you are a friend of Mario or John Molina, you are protected. If you're not, beware. They have hired so many of their friends, and if you cross one of those people, you are done for.

    Best advice, look elsewhere. I am.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Either sell the company and do your employees and members a favors, or bring in knowledgeable people to run the company. Take a look at your competitors. None of them have an M.D. as their CEO. They are all run by business people. Also, John Molina, the CFO, has a J.D. and not an MBA. Really, a lawyer is the CFO, who hasn't practiced law a day in his life. According to many people, as the founder C. David Molina was nearing the end of his life, he begged them to not let John run the company. He must be turning in his grave.
