    Pros

    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.

    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 (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 (less than an year)

    Pros

    Pay is okay. Semi- annual bonuses. Not a lot of micro-managing

    Cons

    This is is a new public sector program with state oversight so there is never an answer to anything. Magellan is constantly over-promising and under-delivering to its customers . We are one year into the program and still very disorganized, partially because we can't keep well trained staff around long enough to keep things running smoothly. Management is too swamped to train people or even respond to their emails. Do yourself a favor and stay away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At a CMC of 140 people, I don't understand how there is no HR on site, I have never met a single HR person from Magellan- maybe you guys should look at your turnover rates and make a trip from corporate?

    We know you all are busy but engaging with your staff goes a long way.

    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 (more than an 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.
