    Pros

    Gaining respect from employees. Being accepted for what you know. Job I had didn't need much training although there were classes that I could have taken if someone showed the way..

    Cons

    Needs to show a little kindness from senior mgt towards employees being laid off. Acknowledge work experience better.

    I worked at Magellan Health full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Excellent benefits package, great amount of pto, room for promotion if time is committed and educational background is there.

    Cons

    Was great working for the company up until the recession hit, plenty of lay-offs. Employees were spread thin, hard keeping up employee morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't spread employees too thin. Help your employees when they need it whether is a personal or work matter, act like you care even if you don't.

    I have been working at Magellan Health full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They are flexible to your personal situations and supportive. Pay and benefits are fantastic. Management is supportive and inviting of your ideas. I love it there so much, I constantly refer friends and family there. Several have been hired or are contractors and have never been happier!

    Cons

    Absolutely none. I work in HR, and they are the best crew I have ever come across. We all know it is a team effort and are willing to pick up wherever necessary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work! Barry, you are fabulous!

    I worked at Magellan Health full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There were many people who worked there for many years who had a lot of knowledge. Also, there was a lot of effort put in to keep the energy and morale high.

    Cons

    Often co-workers were too busy on phones to help you when you needed help with clinical case questions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needed to stay focus on a strategy, it changed too often and care managers were caught in the middle. Unfortunately, this location is no longer open.

    I worked at Magellan Health full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Employees are treated well, benefits OK. Work life balance was adequate.

    Cons

    Office culture was a bit "cliquish" Company did not offer many opportunities for advancement. It seemed like the same people were always being promoted or considered for advancement opportunities while others likely qualified were not even considered unless they were "friends" with management. Certain positions were valued more than others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement a more objective system for promoting/identifying internal talent.
