    I worked at Molina Healthcare full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good Benefits, good vacation and flexible time

    Cons

    Terrible management who get rewarded through connection. Executives awarded themselves and the submissive untalented staffs with promotion and raised. Promotion does not reflect the employee capacity. It rewards the employee if he/she is willing to suck it up and blindly obey the stupid, irrational behavior and bad decision of their superior.

    If you are friend with the right people, you will be promoted regardless of your dismal performance.
    Too many title with little to show for

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward and promote people with real talent

    Hire people with true industrial and enterprise experience.

    Listen to employees and try to implement real changes and just not lip services

    Pros

    Fairly competitive salary and benefits

    Cons

    Two-faced managers, supervisors who bully, unethical and toxic environment. I wouldn't wish Molina on my worst enemy. Worst work-life balance I've ever had the displeasure to experience. Getting the hell out of there was done to save my life. A bunch of unqualified, back-stabbing hypocrites.

    Why does Molina block emails?

    I have been working at Molina Healthcare

    Pros

    Don't know, maybe health benefits, stock options, they say it feels like a mom and pop company.

    Cons

    I know a lot of companies want to play the negotiation game when interviewing, but Molina wants you to ask upfront before your interview (most companies frown on this). I guess my email was blacked because I asked about the salary at my second interview and not prior.

    I worked at Molina Healthcare as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    If you want to work for a company with growth potential then this is the place. They will experience huge revenue increases since they administer government funded health insurance. The growth potential is only limited by their marketing team and their ability to land new contracts with new states. This company will be in business for a long time.

    Cons

    Very poorly management. Steer clear of this company. If you choose to work for this company be very careful regarding management. Make sure you get a good feeling regarding the hiring management and your future boss.

    I worked hard for this company. During my current job search my previous boss provided a bad recommendation. Very surprising and luckily a company I was applying to gave me the heads-up. It is etiquette to provide no information rather than a poor recommendation. This is a very poorly managed company (which you can verify from other reviews). Employee morale is very low.

    Sabotaging a previous employees job search is despicable. This is an incredibly difficult company for employees that care about doing a good job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on employee morale. I never heard about anonymous surveys performed by this company. Perhaps some departments look for feedback but mine did not. Pay very close attention to their suggestions.

    Pros

    Many employees truly believe in the mission that Molina pretends to portray, that of helping the poor, underserved community.

    Cons

    Behind the scenes in the management and corporate environment, it was apparent that the "Molina Family" cares nothing about the underserved population or it's altruistic, hard working employees. Unfortunately, it is all about making a buck for the CEOS and corporate team. Molina is at least 20 years behind the times in data and technology which makes it impossible to manage healthcare effectively in today's environment. The corporate team is all about blaming of employees instead of support and getting the job done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of the business of caring for poor people and go live on Wall Street.

    I worked at Molina Healthcare full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I don't know where all the people writing positive reviews worked, but they're not describing the place where I worked for eight years. Working here is like being an intern. You don't get paid much, but hopefully you'll learn enough to go somewhere else and make a living wage.

    Cons

    The pay starts off bad and it only gets worse. Don't bother applying for internal promotions, because you won't be paid what outside applicants would be paid for the same job. I know several people making below the minimum of their positions salary range. Also, HR has a policy where they max you out at 10% of your current salary for a promotion. So if you get a significant promotion, chances are you will NOT be paid what the position is worth. And with annual raises between 1-3%, you will fall further and further behind the market trends. I know, because when I finally wised up and left, I was offered the same position at another insurance making $28,000 per year more. That is not a typo. I had three internal promotions in eight years, and they screwed me over every time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat internal candidates by the same rules as external candidates.

    I worked at Molina Healthcare full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great benefits and CEO is a doctor

    Cons

    Large caseloads, unrealistic expectations. If you do a good job they recognize you by giving you more work. No life work balance. Time off is a joke if you are on salary. If you take time off then you still have your work facing you when you return. There are lots of people leaving because they are overworked and unappreciated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at how many people have left in the last 6 months. Treat your employees with respect and give realistic expectations for work assignments. Stop adding more requirements and streamline the documentation process. Upper management makes the job impossible to do. They just put everything on the supervisors and in turn gets added to Health Managers already full plate. There are no plans to try to keep good employees. They are blind that so many have left and more will continue to leave under this type of leadership. There is a real problem and no one is trying to fix it.

    Pros

    Best thing is possibility to work remote if you are in the IT department for the MMS division

    Cons

    Too much upper management and not enough workers. Bad training if any training at all

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was denied unemployment because my manager lied and so did HR. I approached HR with concerns but they did nothing to reverse the damage that the manager caused me professionally

    Pros

    Ok Pay, Ok benefits. Good office facilities. Great company if you are Spanish speaker with very little skills.

    Cons

    If you are Spanish this is the company to work for. They hire friends and family members who have no skills. They use the IM environment to help each other out. Everyone knows someone. Some of the supervisors have a hard time spelling simple words at high school level. Have no clue how to handle crisis. Very lazy people in management. Most are threatened by people who can speak good English and have some brains. If you are the type that like to dress like your going to a night well you will enjoy Molina dress code. They take business casual to a whole new level. They allow tattoos - you don't need to cover it up. Member service and outbound outreach has poor leadership. Most of the sups are just drones. I feel bad for the poor who are taken advantage of by the state and health care companies like Molina.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to make sure there is cultural diversity. Hire people who can read, write , have basic grammar. Monitor the leadership. Leadership training for all supervisors and mangers. Get them to be accountable and not lazy.
    Hire decent people.
