    Former Employee - Field EAP Consultant in Washington, DC (US)

    I worked at Magellan Health full-time

    Pros

    Compensation seems relatively fair; received a modest raise each year I worked there. Benefits are pretty much standard, yet competitive. Team members I worked with were awesome; always ready to help and collaborate; this was supported and encouraged by the team management personnel, who were also responsive to questions, needs, issues, etc. most of the time.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations at times. Performance reviews and evaluations were rote, rarely helpful or ongoing (I'm the type of person that appreciates the feedback that reviews/evaluations can provide, when done well).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent. There were some times that certain issues or possible organizational changes that would clearly impact individual employees and/or the team that were not discussed openly even though they were not business/proprietary sensitive.

    The health benefits are good. If you happen to get a good supervisor, you will be in luck.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, I worked for one of the call centers so the environment was pretty abysmal.

    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 (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.
