    I worked at Magellan Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    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.

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

    Pros

    Military men and women are wonderful to work with. MFLC program is a valued program amongst the service members and their families. Command understands the limits of the MFLC's scope of practice.

    Cons

    PTO days are 6 to 10 days max which holidays are not paid. Raises would be nice. Competitive salaries for the field of psychotherapy regardless if MFLC allegedly does psychotherapy or not. The OSD requires a Masters level therapist to fulfill the position so thus the compensation should be with industry standards.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the needs of your employees.

    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!!!!!

    Pros

    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.
    2. You are able to maintain work/life balance. In fact, we're known for it and have a 50% virtual workforce.
    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!
