    Pros

    Able to hire family and friends. Nice facility in downtown Long Beach and promote wellness programs (i.e., free gym, group exercise, rent a bike, etc.)

    Cons

    Too many incompetent friends and family of the Molina's are hired. If you're one of them, you are safe, if not one of them, beware! You need to be an unquestioning follower in order to survive. Independent thinking is not looked upon favorably Many times, it's a "do as I say, not as I do" environment. Those who make the rules don't have to follow them, but everybody else does. Although it's a fortune 300 company, it's run very much as a "Mom & Pop" shop. The Molina's reach down into the organization to get involved in things that are way beneath what they should be concerned about, only for the reason to protect their friends. The board of directors probably don't know what's really going on.

    Human Resources department is a joke, several decent HR professionals including VP's were summarily dismissed and replaced with "yes men". Why you ask? They dared to do their job, and say "no, we can't do this to people". In return, they were let go....sad....

    The IT Department was told to stop innovating and just keep the lights on. Big IT shop and a lot of outside consultants for the size of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Empower your people and trust who you have hired, since they are the experts at what they do. Bring in talented leadership at the very top of the company to stir and guide it in the right direction, or else I'm afraid that Molina Healthcare as a stand alone company will ceased to exist, which might be a good thing for its employees and members.

    Pros

    I've met some really nice people and made a couple of life long friends, but that's it.

    Cons

    If you are an independent thinker with an opinion and a brain, this place ISN'T for you. If you are a "yes" person and all you care about is coming to work and hiding, this place is for you. You either follow along with the brain washing that they try to instill in you, under the guise of the "Molina culture", or else you are in trouble. It's the Molina way or the highway. If you are a friend of Mario or John Molina, you are protected. If you're not, beware. They have hired so many of their friends, and if you cross one of those people, you are done for.

    Best advice, look elsewhere. I am.

    Advice to Management

    Either sell the company and do your employees and members a favors, or bring in knowledgeable people to run the company. Take a look at your competitors. None of them have an M.D. as their CEO. They are all run by business people. Also, John Molina, the CFO, has a J.D. and not an MBA. Really, a lawyer is the CFO, who hasn't practiced law a day in his life. According to many people, as the founder C. David Molina was nearing the end of his life, he begged them to not let John run the company. He must be turning in his grave.

    Nice people. Culturally diverse and dedicated to serving low income and minority populations. Great place to get your feet wet as a student.

    Cons

    Depending on what department you are working, there might not be opportunities to stay with the company in that department. But plenty of opportunities for advancement.

    Pros

    Molina fills a need--serving the low-income population with quality medical services. It's a mission that is taken seriously and one I feel great about, working for this company. The benefits are generous, including paid time off. Sometimes there's a ton of work, other times not. In my department, we are given a lot of autonomy and trust. Everyone I work with is smart and driven, including all my supervisors.

    Cons

    Although it's a sizable company, it's also a bit like a mom and pop operation that is a bit disorganized. This can cause some problems. Also the company intranet is a big of a joke. Please get with the times with that, folks.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the intranet!
