    Pros

    Great second level management team and alot of good staff members. Working with these people and the ability to positively impact people's healthcare experience help make the job enjoyable.

    Cons

    Highly political environment which many times impedes effective communication across all levels of the organization and damages trust between management and staff. Lots of fire fighting, a very reactive environment. Health insurance became self funded in 2008 and has many opportunities for improvement, operationally rough during the first year. Premium inequalities, catastrophic coverage for employee only was nearly free. Medicare operation is unusual give the company stance against marketing, preferring word of mouth advertising.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach, be transparent in agenda and practices, and promote values of the company in day to day operations and treatment of employees. Pull out of the daily details to take on a more strategic role and become a more proactive organization.

    Pros

    Good salary package...Work life balance

    Cons

    Dumb Management that promotes people unfairly. Nothing is transparent. Management is fixated on some score card metrics rather than to really push the costs down. This place is swamped with Consultants....You really don't want to ruin your career here. There is no open door policy and if you complain you are in line of fire. Every manager and director is obsessed with expanding their kingdom rather than working for the good of the company....its all top down,...No bottom up initiatives

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent & fair. managers incentive systems should be tied to lowering the costs , doing more with less.

    Pros

    Lot's of training programs online that are free that will add to your skill set.

    Cons

    Due to the large size of the organization it is difficult to accomplish your goals & deadlines as it can take awhile to get your questions answered or support from your supervisor.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be more mid to lead level positions so managers aren't "hung out to dry" waiting for direction on important projects from their suoervisor

    Pros

    Great Benefits and Decent Pay

    Cons

    Incompetent management- many of them are under qualified and rule with intimidation and micro management. If you are a mediocre employee with no college and can kiss up to current management this is your paradise.
    Upper Management encourages managers to be friends with their subordinates which allows for favoritism. Molina Healthcare proudly proclaims that they encourage friendships between managers and their direct reports.
    HR- You tell them about a problem and they go behind your back to your manager and tattle tale on you. Evidently they have never heard about confidentiality.
    No work life balance especially if you are "salaried" they expect you to work constantly 50-60 hours a week and give up your weekends too in order to meet their unrealistic ideals.
    Upper Management- Some of these people are the bottom of the barrel quality but they wear the right clothes and drive the right car so they get the job.
    I was told that this company was all about family......dysfunctional family!
    Upper Management doesn't even try to keep good employees when asked Upper Management will deny this every time.

    Advice to Management

    It’s not professional to encourage friendships between managers and their direct reports.
    Nix the unrealistic expectations and micromanagement on your employees. Any self-respecting adult should not need a baby sitter.
    Promote people who are hard workers and have experience and an education instead of some admin assistant that went out to happy hour with their manager/director and suddenly climbed the ladder. There are many well educated and experienced employees on staff but instead these people are "worked to death" and eventually leave to take a pay cut or no job at all.
    HR- Keep things confidential and quit back stabbing employees who confide in you.

    Pros

    Nice people but that doesn't get the work done. Company philosophy is nice but untrue.

    Cons

    Promotions based on NATIONALITY/FRIEND OF MOLINA FAMILY not experience. CLUELESS about industry, competitors, how to get from A to Z.

    Advice to Management

    THE BONUS AND MERITS NEVER EQUALS WHAT HAS BEEN PROMISED except for the Molina Family & Friends.

    Use this company as a stepping stone to move on to bigger and better things like Aetna, United Health, Anthem.

    Pros

    Benefits are excellent, VTO opportunity, great location, good work environment except in HCS department, great growing coming up, summer batch is great, Christmas party is awesome, tuition reimbursement up to $2500 for employees and family is good, life insurance without cost is included in the benefits

    Cons

    HCS department at Miami, FL is collapsing, 20 employees decided to left or demote including 2 HCS managers, the rest of the employees are looking to go. Employees in that department cannot even wear perfume, management with lack of professional skills, micromanaging everybody, overwhelming old employees with work because the new ones are so lack of knowledge about the work and the training is horrible. Professional growing equal zero, supervisors that don't have idea about the clinical operation of the department. HCS department is being bullied and nobody pay attention to that

    Advice to Management

    Please, pay attention to the employees complaints, HCS department is under oppressive and unprofessional management, old and knowledgeable employees deserve to advance to better positions, new employees need to be carefully selected and correctly trained

    Pros

    IT folks have flexible schedules. Most employees have the same gripes even though they don't unify against the oppressors.

    Cons

    Local management is horrible- the ones running the show have little to no formal management education. The morale is horrid, local management tries to skim the pot as much as possible. Several HR violations here and nothing gets done.
    Management has employees scared to do anything but work- hitleristic dress code and management styles here.
    Lots of buddy system promotions and job offerings. If you don't suck up to the big dogs you won't last long here.
    Building is a joke and needs to be overhauled severely.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the managers in Idaho and start over, or at the very least send all of these clowns to training so that this site isn't a laughing stock of other MMS sites.
