    Pros

    Friendly Staff, Flexible Scheduling, Small Quiet Office

    Cons

    Low Employee Morale, Not Much Room for Growth, Micromanaging

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want a leader who is not knowledgeable, constantly gives inaccurate information, tries to find fault in any action you make or question you have, gossips, micromanages, is a habitual liar, has poor communication and only involves staff on a need-to-know basis (which pertains to almost everything you may need to know), and who will make every effort to get you into trouble if she doesn't like you then this is the job for you. Don't expect upper management or HR to listen to your concerns because they will back up the each other, even when someone is wrong and will somehow blame the employee for it.

    It doesn't matter how hard the employee works, don't expect much appreciation. Management expects you to contribute to a positive environment but they won't make the same contribution. Expect to be paid a lot less than the amount you should get paid, especially considering the amount of work that you do. You may not see the wickedness at first, but give it a few months... eventually the claws will come out. I have no desire to work for the management team or at this location ever again. Perhaps your talent will be more appreciated somewhere else.

    I have been working at Molina Healthcare full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    There is the opportunity to learn, always working with new technology, good benefits, decent pay

    Cons

    The culture is really disjointed. A lot of nepatism in promoting and the lack of accountability is atrocious. EIS was reorganized for the better, however the ones that lead this failed in everyway to deliver, they failed to define the group roles and responsibilities, individual roles and responsibilities and one director in charge of new technology and refining current processes has completely abandoned the company altogether. Hasn't produced anything in two years and got promoted to boot!! They actually read a book to try and manage their way out of the very issue they created. Managers all promoted themsleves, meanwhile leaving the rest without titles for two years. Mgmt did a real job selling the reorganization, now it is up to them to step up and lead which is NOT what they do so there really is no hope in success. The only success will be to let them all go and hire in talented experienced leaders who can lead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take all the VPs, AVPs and directors of each group, sit them down and tell them they all need to work together, define what each group owns and is accountable for, make them accountable to run their teams better. Make them lead, make them actually perform as managers which is a foreign concept. Get a better handle on project mgmt and cost mgmt. Task each leader with efficiency matrix to make their groups more efficient. It should not take 35 people to respond to a sev 1 incident and take more than two weeks to resolve. No work life balance. with no real maintenance structure in place, changes will be made every night and weekend. In addition, sonce the new Operations team cannot staff properly and inept non-technical manages leading, they always have to call skilled engineers to bail them out. No rest or time off. The hipocracy will drive one insane.

    Pros

    I've met some really nice people and made a couple of life long friends, but that's it.

    Cons

    If you are an independent thinker with an opinion and a brain, this place ISN'T for you. If you are a "yes" person and all you care about is coming to work and hiding, this place is for you. You either follow along with the brain washing that they try to instill in you, under the guise of the "Molina culture", or else you are in trouble. It's the Molina way or the highway. If you are a friend of Mario or John Molina, you are protected. If you're not, beware. They have hired so many of their friends, and if you cross one of those people, you are done for.

    Best advice, look elsewhere. I am.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Either sell the company and do your employees and members a favors, or bring in knowledgeable people to run the company. Take a look at your competitors. None of them have an M.D. as their CEO. They are all run by business people. Also, John Molina, the CFO, has a J.D. and not an MBA. Really, a lawyer is the CFO, who hasn't practiced law a day in his life. According to many people, as the founder C. David Molina was nearing the end of his life, he begged them to not let John run the company. He must be turning in his grave.
