    I worked at Magellan Health full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Magellan is a sound company. Their compensation is fair and their standards and expectations are high.

    Cons

    There tends to be a lot of movement in the executive positions which changes strategy and gives the experience of being top heavy.

    Advice to Management

    Grow talent within. Although I did see they have a management training position listed on the job boards, so maybe they figured that out.

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

    Pros

    PTO. The people I work with, directly, are top of the food chain when it comes to talent. Work from home is a plus. Agile is a bonus if implemented correctly.

    Cons

    Pay is very low. There is no room for advancement. Your opinion will not matter if you aren't one of the inner-circle. Work-life balance is non-existent. Long hours to cover skill deficiency and under staffed teams.

    Advice to Management

    First, the IT leaders live in an echo chamber and believe they are being transparent and forthcoming with information. Unfortunately, that information is not being shared through the layers of management. Everyday feels like some twisted version of the Chinese Whispers. This gap MUST be bridged in order to find success.

    Second, if you plan to make changes to the reporting structure and build teams to meet the new process improvements you must do this with efficiency. Telling someone that they have a new reporting structure, and then leaving them in limbo for 8-10 weeks adds stress to an already stressful time.

    Third, speak with the employees and ask for their feedback. What you are attempting to accomplish is a tough task, but without constant, clear lines of communication you will make it nearly impossible to accomplish. For the record, Social media is NOT an alternative. That leads to derailed conversations and too many items missed. Having open dialog with all of your employees gives a sense of ownership and involvement in the sweeping changes.

    Pros

    Good pay. nice building. mostly good peers. hard to come up with 20 words! good pay. no and then bonuses but not much after taxes

    Cons

    You will be expected to just talk and type. not much respect from management to their employees. The health insurance benefits are not good either.

    Advice to Management

    Try and give some room for call variance. font focus so much on the numbers. Show your employees some respect and show them they are valued

    Pros

    Work at home 1 day a week was a positive opportunity and saved gas money and saved time being in traffic.

    Cons

    Company went through 9 supervisors within 3 years. A couple supervisors were very supportive of the team, the other 7 used the position to launch higher in the company leaving our team hanging and not seeing goals being met due to too many changes.

    Advice to Management

    Hire someone that plans to stay in the supervisor position for 3 or more years for continuity of care.
