    Pros

    High level of Independence in work Supervision is not micromanaging Opportunities to take rotations overseas Very little paperwork.

    Cons

    The health plan is basically like not having insurance. The pay is 25000 per year less than other Professionals in the same location with the same credentials. There are only seven days of PTO and from time to time they get taken from you because of inclement weather. 7 Days also includes sick vacation and any other time off you would need. There is an extremely cumbersome system of logging in and out daily. Individuals are very disconnected and isolated there is no sense of teamwork or connection most people in this position do not know other people in the same position working for the same company at the same location. Aspects of HR are contracted out or you must search for your answers in and online Forum there is very little personal service when you have questions about benefits.

    School MFLC

    Pros

    School schedule/calendar year, school administration, faculty and staff can be awesome to work with. Working with school-aged children can be very rewarding.

    Cons

    You only get paid during the school year (no pay/work over summer). Organization lies about amount of pay you receive, limits PTO accrual to 10 days per calendar year, requires MFLC's to meet performance metrics, and only provides a HDHP as a medical plan option.

    Would not recommend

    Pros

    The company allows for up to $800 for reimbursement towards training licensing etc.

    Cons

    Management spends a good amount of time stating was MFLC's are not allowed to do, what the company does not pay...very micro managed. Work in a middle school and as an MFLC with Magellan MFLC's are not allowed to participate in school functions such as dress up (jersey day, pj day, halloween, etc.). Magellan also does not want MFLC"s to be part of the school and participate in school functions -no personal friendships/relationships with staff. MFLC's are told they are supposed to be completely separate from school/staff environment just to name a few. In this environment it is difficult to build rapport with students & develop relationships when so many limitations exists. One is consitantky reminded of all the no's (when school calls a two hour delay, Magellan does not pay MFLC's and that time must be made up. Magellan is very strict on taking time off for training, sick days, etc. Also, vacation, training, sick, and mental health days are used with the same PTO which is a small accumulation. So much more to list... My personal and professional thoughts...would not recommend working for this company to anyone.

    Laid back job, it is what you make of it

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, no micromanaging, minimal and easy documentation, freedom to work with clients in various locations, opportunities to travel overseas. Most people who do this job can accommodate with a private practice or teletherapy

    Cons

    Adult positions are limited, there can be very slow days since your schedule isn't quite documented. Supervisors ask for a set schedule, but it is not realistic. Military contract so at the end of the contract many people were left unemployed. No room really to move up the ladder.
