    Some really great people in the trenches to work with, pay was good, and work/life balance was good.

    Upper management was the only Con. No direction, didn't pay attention to reporting staff, keep trying everything under the sun with nothing really working.

    "Director"

    I worked at Magellan Health

    Pros

    Work from home policy and travel restrictions mean you have decent work life balance. A few talented and good people (who are likely to jump ship fast)left in the company try to work hard and make an impact.

    Cons

    Business is in freefall, significant senior leadership turnover, lack of investment in systems and talent erosion at all levels. Company lost its strategic direction and growth ambitions and hit a low point when a series of incompetent middle managers and inexperienced VPs came onboard. These leaders then in turn brought in even less competent talent and relegated top performers to fend for themselves or worse. In one instance the exiting senior most executive brought his friend who had no experience in the industry and made him responsible for key improvement activities. Needless to say improvements were realized and top talent left leaving behind an inexperienced and u skilled PowerPoint rookie crew. Exact same pattern repeated in MCC and shared services like Network, Claims IT, BTO

    Pros

    Great work life balance. Ability to work from home with certain positions. Conducts internal surveys on how the company can improve overall AND actually considers as well as enacts widely agreed upon changes. Opportunity to earn bonuses.

    Cons

    Little to no training. While a lot positions depend on industry knowledge, training regarding specific organizational structure and policies is needed. A little more transparency as to corporate changes. Understand company policy is not to comment on rumors so as not to cause panic and a mass exodus but having to find out about the possibility of major org changes yields that result anyway.

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

    Pros

    Employment was somewhat better before they sold the company to Magellan Health. Magellan Health has a horrible HR Department!! This job is more about the participants budgets, computer and plan details than it is about the services and rapport with participants. This job is great for someone who really enjoys and is proficient with plenty of math. Nice concept, but many flaws in this program. The pay and amount of benefits offered are good.

    Cons

    Magellan Health has a horrible HR Department!! This job is more about the participants budgets, computer and plan details than it is about the services and rapport with participants. The Department of Health Services takes many months to approve a simple budget amendment for added services to improve a participant's health and safety. The consultants take the brunt for most of the issues for the program. Caseloads are too high for quality and it is mostly about putting out fires. Nice concept, but many flaws in this program. Work/life balance is difficult with overtime needed and working at home. Not enough training time before working alone.
