    I have been working at Molina Healthcare

    Pros

    Flexible to a point when it comes to attendance but that's about it..

    Cons

    You gotta kiss the leadership's butts to get anywhere, during your interview they give you one job description but when you get in you do something totally different, to many people in charge without leadership experience, you gotta be part of their click or you don't stand a chance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure it out and stop playing favoritism ...what about the MBR's? It shouldn't be about the numbers ..remember what field we work in and the kind of members we have ....

    I have been working at Molina Healthcare full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, except pay and raises, are decent.

    Cons

    Once in, staff is treated like children and raises are non-existent or disconnected to employee value. That's one reason talent is leaving. Every day is a crisis; management blames that on the industry. Profits are up - at the expense of the workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Turn on your hearing aids. Open your eyes. People have told you but ignore it.

    I have been working at Molina Healthcare full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Not many. They have a company picnic occasionally. That's about it.

    Cons

    People in the software division don't even use Source Control, because things are very political and hide their projects in the software department. Also database administrators often sabotage data.

    Very political. They have two teams in the software position. One is new because the other team could not meet a deadline with a product. The other is just pointing fingers at our team, and trying to screw our team out of a job. Unfortunately the managers are very biased and political in their assigning of issues. My hiring manager and director were fired before I came on board.

    They fire people constantly here. And they don't assign work to our team.

    They also don't give people the technical resources to do software jobs (computers, which don't have terminal licenses, are far in between). They don't go for Microsoft Gold Certificates (getting people certified for free software).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People need resources to do their job. The evaluations are handed down from the CFO, which is the CEO's brother. I think John Molina is a good person, he's a doctor in charge of the Medical Department.

    I think if their heart is in the right place. However, the evaluations are not. If there is no money for software,. machines, bonuses, etc, than don't make people responsible for adding financial value without giving them tools to do their jobs.

    I have been working at Molina Healthcare full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The benefits are decent, great if you want to work 60-80 hour weeks, nothing else I can really put in this section

    Cons

    Old boys/girls network- promotions dependent on who you know, not on your work product- do not fool yourself! Texas should adopt the corporate values about work-life balance, HR is so employee friendly they are actually anti-management, which means management has to try to get staff to meet productivity and quality goals with hands tied behind their backs. Upper management agrees with you until they get flack about something and the next thing you know, you are the fall person. Watch out for directors and VPs who take credit for your work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace the entire upper management team. Move corporate office to Houston where you can actually find people who will do their jobs. Rebuild Molina corporate culture in the Texas business segment, recognize people for their contributions instead of hiring your buddies, there is no such thing as work-life balance.

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

    Pros

    I worked at Molina Health care as a consultant, the only good part was the location, nothing else.

    Cons

    Middle/ Senior IT management needs to be trained enough to take the responsibilities rather then relying upon their own team members and PM's.

    PMO processes are not very well defined, there are too many cooks who are spoiling the broth.

    Team culture and team building does not exist within IT.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please provide proper training to the IT Management.

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

    Pros

    Hours are good. Company provides water and coffee. And they allow you to use the bathroom as long as you do not use it from 8 to 9 am, 12 to 2pm, 4-5 pm. If you need to use the bathroom during the time slots they tell you not to go but if do need to go you need a doctors note!!!!

    Cons

    Manager is biggest stumbling block. No focus, takes credit for your work. Manager tells you good job but then immediately points out some trivial flaw in your work which makes you not want to work harder. Lack of leadership. Expect 1-2 percent raises if all goes well. This is how expenses are kept down. Bonus is 75 percent company determined and 25 percent employee driven. Why work hard if you get 75 percent irregardless. Abusive and accusatory culture permeates the company. Need to dot your i and cross your T well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of management. Need some people with more experience and know how to motivate people.

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

    Pros

    I worked for this employer in two locations: Washington and California. I can't say enough good things about the WASHINGTON locations. I felt valued and respected as a team member and I felt the management was really trying to better the culture of the company and respect their employees.

    Cons

    However, the experience I had working for this company in CALIFORNIA was the exact opposite. The corporate culture was oppressive and inflexible. I was illegally fired when I was 7 months pregnant after over a year of being shifted around to various positions that were well below my skill level because the company couldn't get it together enough to finally start the position I was transferred to this location for. I was repeatedly treated like I was an inexperienced and low-level employee, despite having education and experience higher than many of the management staff. I feel that this company, in general, does NOT respect its employees and I would not at all suggest that anybody take a job here if you want to feel like you're a valued member of a team.

    Pros

    Helping the under-served with healthcare is a rewarding feeling.

    Cons

    Poor compensation for long work hours. Lack of flexibility in middle/upper management, and lack of regard for work-life balance. Communication is lacking between management and employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication, please. Don't try to snow the employees, we realize that things are not going well. Trying to put a spin on it is coming off as disingenuous. Also, when you have a manager at a high level who has consistently shown that they cannot retain good employees - take note and do something about it. This company comes across to employees as a small-family owned company that hasn't figured out how to grow up.
