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

    Pros

    Molina is a great place to get started in a career. The culture is amazing and people are genuine. Some great talent in the organization. I was pleased with the beginning salary offer.

    Cons

    Training focuses mainly on HR related issues and there are few opportunities for professional development within areas related to current position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    From a middle management perspective, senior leaders would do well to listen to issues that impact their management team. These challenges, however small to a senior leader, grow larger and become significant and overwhelming and negatively impact overall positive outcomes. The philosophy of team work is lacking.

    Pros

    Great opportunities to grow your career, if your manager/leader has the right leadership skills to invest in the talent of their team. CFO values its employees.

    Cons

    Inconsistent practices, nepotism, challenges with fast-growth, and compensation/bonus are low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to develop managers and employees.

    Pros

    Great culture, great benefits, full of opportunity to grow and succeed.

    Cons

    IT upper middle and lower management are terrible, condone and practice nepotism to its fullest extent, they also retaliate and get rid of anyone opposing their agendas regardless of the effort that people make to uphold company's standards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of all of them in IT, they are nothing but HOLLYWOOD and as such waste precious company talent and money to line their own and also their friends and family

    I worked at Molina Healthcare full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Many employees truly believe in the mission that Molina pretends to portray, that of helping the poor, underserved community.

    Cons

    Behind the scenes in the management and corporate environment, it was apparent that the "Molina Family" cares nothing about the underserved population or it's altruistic, hard working employees. Unfortunately, it is all about making a buck for the CEOS and corporate team. Molina is at least 20 years behind the times in data and technology which makes it impossible to manage healthcare effectively in today's environment. The corporate team is all about blaming of employees instead of support and getting the job done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of the business of caring for poor people and go live on Wall Street.

    I worked at Molina Healthcare full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I don't know where all the people writing positive reviews worked, but they're not describing the place where I worked for eight years. Working here is like being an intern. You don't get paid much, but hopefully you'll learn enough to go somewhere else and make a living wage.

    Cons

    The pay starts off bad and it only gets worse. Don't bother applying for internal promotions, because you won't be paid what outside applicants would be paid for the same job. I know several people making below the minimum of their positions salary range. Also, HR has a policy where they max you out at 10% of your current salary for a promotion. So if you get a significant promotion, chances are you will NOT be paid what the position is worth. And with annual raises between 1-3%, you will fall further and further behind the market trends. I know, because when I finally wised up and left, I was offered the same position at another insurance making $28,000 per year more. That is not a typo. I had three internal promotions in eight years, and they screwed me over every time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat internal candidates by the same rules as external candidates.
