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

Pros

PTO and benefits are good. Very flexible on working hours and working from home. There is room for advancement within the company.

Cons

Salary seems to be lower than current standards. Often see new hires with less exprience being brought in at a high pay level. I have work here for 13 years and raises are not great.

Advice to Management

Middle management needs to be more skilled in their job. There is a lot of problems with communications with in departments and much time and resources are wasted.

    I have been working at Magellan Health full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Mature company, fairly stable but a lot of changing right now. PTO is reasonable, remote working conditions are good, flexible work hours, trying to be a progressive, growing company.

    Cons

    Promotions are limited, raises and salaries are weak unless you're a new hire or senior leader. They rotate through a lot of outside senior management which is very disruptive. Pretty intense work environment and it seems to get only more demanding. The market is changing and Magellan is trying to change, but it seems like they have a long way to go. It's a top down environment and they are not much in tune with the work at mid and ground level. Antiquated systems. Poorly organized. Behind the times.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the revolving flow of senior leaders that don't know the business and reduce the number overall. Need more workers and less senior managers. Learn from mid and ground level staff and those that have been in and ignored for years. Don't be punitive when you hear things you don't like. Ask and be willing to really listen and act without retribution. Reduce the stress and intensity. Bring in more front-line staff to support all the new initiatives. Don't try to do everything and say yes to everyone and customize everything. Being flexible actually results in more limitations for scalability and being nimble. Figure out what you're good at or what you want to be good at and focus. Trying to do too much at once is pushing the business to the edge.

    I have been working at Magellan Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits. Salary is under the average stated on glassdoor for comparable positions at other employers. Excellent time off allotment from the start and flexible work environment. Some opportunity for telecommuting if your job responsibilities permit that to occur.

    Cons

    Some in senior management roles have excellent people-leadership skills, others will throw you under the bus without hesitation. Employees perceived as not closely aligned with the agenda of a manager or a manager's favored staff will be disregarded. Corporate frequently pushes out new initiatives, does not properly fund support for new contracts and management poorly executes what corporate thrusts upon them, resulting in a chaotic and stressful work for front-line employees who have to clean up the resulting mess.

    Advice to Management

    Strive to lead the excellent and knowledgeable employees you have and listen to them without forcing your own personal agenda. Identify the senior management who do not have effective people-leadership skills and provide them with mentors or other resources to understand their role and tools to obtain the skills needed to lead others. Get rid of the many senior-level management who are on a self-glorifying power trip and unwilling to learn to effectively lead people. Admit when a new initiative didn't go quite the way it was intended to go, and solicit comments and suggestions directly from front-line employees.
