    Great company and people (Except HR)

    Jul 1, 2020 - Pharmacy Technician

    Pros

    Everyone at Magellan is so great and people really care about their work. People are here to help and take time out of their day to make sure you understand a project or system. My team and the people I work with make my day so much better and makes me love coming to work everyday.

    Cons

    HR staff is horrible. they are unprofessional and condescending. Its really shocking how they hold such high positions. They do not reflect the rest of Magellan at all. The health benefits and maternity /paternity leave is also not great surprisingly because Magellan is a HEALTH CARE company.

    Pros

    Work from home policy and travel restrictions mean you have decent work life balance. A few talented and good people (who are likely to jump ship fast)left in the company try to work hard and make an impact.

    Cons

    Business is in freefall, significant senior leadership turnover, lack of investment in systems and talent erosion at all levels. Company lost its strategic direction and growth ambitions and hit a low point when a series of incompetent middle managers and inexperienced VPs came onboard. These leaders then in turn brought in even less competent talent and relegated top performers to fend for themselves or worse. In one instance the exiting senior most executive brought his friend who had no experience in the industry and made him responsible for key improvement activities. Needless to say improvements were realized and top talent left leaving behind an inexperienced and u skilled PowerPoint rookie crew. Exact same pattern repeated in MCC and shared services like Network, Claims IT, BTO

    Overtime is available whenever, okay pay.

    Management doesn't know anything besides how to get rid of people for working too hard. Will fire you without reason.

    Pros

    A nice place to work. They allow some work at home opportunities. Most people are very nice and ethical. They pay well.

    Cons

    Call center environment, still better then most. They close down main break room for big meetings, inconvenient for those that use it.

    Pros

    Great work life balance. Lots of flexibility Ample training opportunities Kind and smart people Trustworthy management

    Cons

    The pay wasn't that great, but when you considered what they were spending on training and the fact that I actually got an 8 hour work day, I was satisfied enough to stay 8 years.
