    I have been working at Magellan Health full-time

    Pros

    Work from home. Chance to earn quarterly bonus if you meet your quota.
    Managers are very nice if you reach out to them, otherwise there is not a lot of contact with them.

    Cons

    A lot of self teaching. Not a lot of guidance from management.

    Advice to Management

    Build more of a connection with your employees so employees don't just feel like a "number" in a large company.

    Pros

    They pay you. Besides that you just work the hours and you don't have to work weekends.

    Cons

    Very corporate feel. They talk about being innovative, but are too beaurocratic to actually walk the walk.

    Advice to Management

    Too much red tape.

    Pros

    Good intentions and corporate values, a lot of high caliber co workers, work from home abilities, generous vacation time, desire to innovate is emphasized

    Cons

    Constant reorganization, lack of investment in process and project/program management, constant fires and onus put on a few capable people until they burn out and leave

    Advice to Management

    Invest in defining roles and align work to key priorities.

    Pros

    decent pay coupled with work from home option

    Cons

    This is a classic case of blind leading the blind starting from the top. IT Leader"sheep" is a bunch of yes men who are buddies from the same company with zero healthcare experience No points for guessing which one. Don't even try applying for any internal roles - these are all predetermined. You will not even get an automated reject from the portal. They talk all day about new technologies without understanding the Business needs. I do not blame them since they have no clue how Healthcare companies function.

    Advice to Management

    Whats the point? These people do not listen. They all talk a good game except that everything they say is borrowed material from Tedtalks on youtube..exponential growth, Agility, cloud , data lake blah blah blah. One advice..stay in the silicon valley and give these talks to the Uber's and Tesla's

    Pros

    The paycheck was on time, telecommute options offered, and PTO was generous. That's not enough to stay somewhere. Benefits were otherwise horrendous.

    Cons

    Where to begin? The company has undergone so much change in senior leadership the last few years your head will spin. CEO, CMO, CTO, the list goes on and on. The company has NO IDEA what it is or where it wants to go. Understaffed and overworked, most quality staff just find another job elsewhere. The current leadership are narcissistic sociopaths. RUN away from this place.

    Advice to Management

    None. They wouldn't listen anyway.

    Pros

    Decent amount of vacation time if you get to schedule it. Co-workers were top notch & dedicated but undervalued.

    Cons

    They re-vamped our entire work structure for the worse & laid off the people who understood the system. Many left. The end result is primarily a system that not only doesn't work but takes 2-3 times longer to complete tasks with little accuracy. Employees treated like factory workers w/masters degrees, working 10-12 hours daily, no overtime pay and hard to get the time off when you want it. Daily confusion & frustration because management does not know what they are doing and therefore can't train new comers. Not supportive of employees. Little room for advancement or changing your position.

    Advice to Management

    In your effort to save money, you have to be losing money & clients. Re-think your processes and streamline them. Train your supervisors and trainers. Be radical and start listening to the needs of your employees if you a) don't want to lose the ones you have left, b) expect to keep new hires and c) expect to keep and attract new business (I assume that's a goal you have).

    Pros

    Benefits are great. Company strives to make a difference.

    Cons

    Network department heads tip-toe on the line between scamming and being fraudulent. Half of upper management purposely turns a blind eye.

    Advice to Management

    Look through the very expensive contracts and investigate the contractor's relationships with those providers. If you continue to turn a blind eye while management continues to do this, soon you be investigated by ACHA. Oh and look into the inappropriate relationships in that department. For the most part, you can only get promoted if you're willing to be extra friendly after work with the boss, or even during lunch.
