    There are many reasons to join Magellan Health, but here are my top 5 reasons to work here:
    1.Your work is centered on a transformative purpose that helps people live healthier lives.

    3. Innovation. It's at the heart of everything we do and we are doing some cutting edge stuff.
    4. Continious Improvement. Our leadership team is known for it's healthy working relationship and focus on continuous improvement. Just look at our growth. 20% YOY speaks to our focus in this area.
    5. Be a catalyst for change. Your voice matters and you have a platform to do good work and make immediate impact.

    Cons

    Typical growing pains, but nothing that I would say is a negative at this point.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in the workforce of the future, kudos!

    Pros

    The pay is great and the work done being supportive to members and connecting them with resources is rewarding. Not to mention there is a cafeteria and gym onsite. A great perk of working at Magellan.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations to manage work load; constantly working additional hours to keep up with the workload (unpaid); frequent changes of work expectations; high turnover of frustrated staff; lack of adequate support to staff; permanent weekend/evening schedule and shamefully the health insurance is horrible (HSA only option).

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your clinical staff when genuine concerns are voiced about what's not working; listen to suggestions; and make an effort to find a solution to fix the problem. As a result, staff will be loyal to Magellan; you'll be able to keep great clinical staff; staff will feel valued; the morale will be up; and instead of wasting money on constantly training new staff (to replace staff who constantly leave), you'll save money and be able to get better health insurance suitable for your staff who work for a healthcare company.

    Pros

    They sometimes let you take time off.

    Cons

    No career growth. Compensation is 20-30% below the market. To top it off, the culture is toxic. People applaud the CTO and tell him how great he is, and then turn around and spread venom throughout the whole company. The worst part is that you cannot talk to Sr. Management because you don't really matter to them. It's horrible. Advice to prospects...RUN!!!!!

    I worked at Magellan Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There were a few good people.

    Cons

    Was placed on shift that did not make sense despite having employees living in different time zones. People were stressed which often lead to lashing out at fellow colleagues. Business decisions made on impulse rather than carefully tested and proven.

    I worked at Magellan Health full-time

    Pros

    Aggressively looking for new business, growth, and cost savings. Stable company with solid financials. Generally good people to work with.

    Cons

    Pace of change is exhausting and feels chaotic which would be expected for the level of growth they are seeking

    Advice to Management

    Managers need training and support. HR not doing that well to support them - just doing the administrative functions. Managers need to communicate better.

    Pros

    Interesting work, chance to learn new things. PTO is generous as well, you have to use it up ask in the current year, other than a 40 hour buffer you can hold on to.

    Cons

    Several different business lines, hard to coordinate development efforts and new technologies among the groups. Business has a hard time on priorities at times
