    Pros

    If you are fresh out of college this is the place for you. Spend 1-3years here and leave quickly. Run like the wind

    Cons

    Management is chosen by friends and relatives. Nepotism is pivotal here. This is the place of the hypocrites. Management will hire friends to do nothing but collect a paycheck and harass and bully subordinates. Management is less qualified than subordinates. Many subordinates are well educated. There is zero room for upward mobility here. Some departments are good and want to break silohs. Most don't like change and management does not like to accountability for projects and will throw other departments under the bus, as well as subordinates. Bullying is common here, as well eve to your last day on the job. If you people in management that can barely speak a word of English. English is the officially language spoken amongst colleagues here. So how are these folks hired. Benefits are not great. Do yourself a favor and avoid this place

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get degrees and then maybe we'll take you seriously. Stop hiring your family and friend, and then maybe we'll take you seriously.

    I have been working at Molina Healthcare

    Pros

    there are some benefits, the health insurance is expensive though

    Cons

    No way to advance within the company, if your supervisor doesn't sign off for you to transfer, you don't advance. Supervisors steal your work as their own; supervisor has charge do all his/her work and takes the credit for it. Supervisor reports to manager and lies about what is really going on. Employees who have no more than a high school diploma get promoted to highly-paid positions, regardless of skill or experience and have them in charge of more highly-educated persons and then take credit for everything that the charge does.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Meet with entire department when getting updates from supervisors. Ask that ALL correspondence is CCd to you so you know which person did most of the work and what was done. Give credit where credit is due (and as well as advancement and pay-raises)

    Pros

    Genuine possibility to help people, especially people who have never had preventative healthcare before. Decent benefits and salary.

    Cons

    HR claims to support staff but seem to overlook major infractions by leadership in regards to HIPAA violations, bullying and discrimination in the workplace. Protection for whistleblowers is non-existent and staff is reminded often how expendable they are. Absolutely no oversight of low level management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How do you expect to create loyal, hardworking employees if their complaints are overlooked and abusive behavior by management is tolerated? Create an HR Dept that actually takes complaints seriously instead of trying to discredit the person making the complaint.

    I have been working at Molina Healthcare full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company leaders talk about values and serving the under served.
    Many jobs do not require any education therefore no glass ceilings for people without college degrees.
    New employees love Molina - they are paid fairly, they believe in the Molina lip-service, they haven't been exposed to the incompetent FOM's(friends of Molina). Great place to get some experience then go to a "real" company.

    Cons

    Compensation is not transparent and external candidates are treated better than internal candidates - the disparity between the two continues.
    They are a fortune 500 family run company with many "FOM"s - Friend of Molina. The FOM's are untouchable - generally not qualified to do whatever position they are in and simply another layer of nonsense.
    It is a top heavy company where the Peter Principal is apparent at every turn.
    Advancement opportunities require relocation to Long Beach, CA

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring your unqualified friends into position of influence. Allow autonomy of decision making for leaders outside of the corporate structure. Your idea of centralized functions has created the worst of both worlds, you have teams in one location being supervised by managers in another state, poor performance should be addressed and because you surround yourself with FOM's so you have no awareness that "The Emperor has no clothes". So much waste in your management structure.

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

    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.

    Pros

    Able to hire family and friends. Nice facility in downtown Long Beach and promote wellness programs (i.e., free gym, group exercise, rent a bike, etc.)

    Cons

    Too many incompetent friends and family of the Molina's are hired. If you're one of them, you are safe, if not one of them, beware! You need to be an unquestioning follower in order to survive. Independent thinking is not looked upon favorably Many times, it's a "do as I say, not as I do" environment. Those who make the rules don't have to follow them, but everybody else does. Although it's a fortune 300 company, it's run very much as a "Mom & Pop" shop. The Molina's reach down into the organization to get involved in things that are way beneath what they should be concerned about, only for the reason to protect their friends. The board of directors probably don't know what's really going on.

    Human Resources department is a joke, several decent HR professionals including VP's were summarily dismissed and replaced with "yes men". Why you ask? They dared to do their job, and say "no, we can't do this to people". In return, they were let go....sad....

    The IT Department was told to stop innovating and just keep the lights on. Big IT shop and a lot of outside consultants for the size of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower your people and trust who you have hired, since they are the experts at what they do. Bring in talented leadership at the very top of the company to stir and guide it in the right direction, or else I'm afraid that Molina Healthcare as a stand alone company will ceased to exist, which might be a good thing for its employees and members.

    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.
