This company is deceiving in that they pretend to care for their hard working employees

Corporate Recruiter (Former Employee)
Long Beach, CA (US)

I worked at Molina Healthcare full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThis company offers exceptional benefits.

ConsThis company hires friends and family of the Molina's that don't have talent nor are qualified to run a billion dollar managed care corporation. The employees bleed Molina green and then are blindsided with terminations. This company will suck you dry and spit you out. I had a strong passion for this company and was a loyal, loyal employee and one day they decided they had no more use for me. This is a common occurence.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet a clue on hiring executives who are not friends and family of the Molina's and get away from the Good Ol' Boys Club mentality.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

No Innovation. Bad Office Environment. This job sucks!!!!!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Irving, TX (US)

I have been working at Molina Healthcare full-time for more than a year

ProsI really enjoy my co-workers. I work with some of the best people I have ever met. Also if you are sick you can work from home. And that's about it.

ConsThis company seems to lack vision. Employees are not valued here and it is a revolving door. So many people either quit or get fired. Also, I go days and weeks without having any projects assigned. The job would be boring but there is so much office politics and drama that there is never a dull moment. This company sr. management also have a finger-pointing, blame others, and throw who they can under the bus. This job is so stressful.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease treat people with respect and learn how to have a little fun and stop being so uptight. I do not see how you all can compete with other MCO companies that have Christmas parties, wear jeans, more PTO, work from home policies, & market share.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

There are better places to work. Would avoid this one.

Corporate Director (Former Employee)

I worked at Molina Healthcare full-time for more than 3 years

ProsWork hours were sometimes flexible and people around the company seemed generally OK. The salary was below industry levels but decent. Bonuses are a total joke so don't factor that in. Benefits were decent.

ConsThey are big on family slogans, but it is pure BS. The work environment is awful. Leaders (funny term in this place) are phony. Companies sometimes say stuff like our people are our biggest asset. Definitely not the case here. Very high management turnover. HR appears unprofessional. Good people get axed and just disappear over night. It appears senior managers are poorly equipped and poorly trained. Spent almost three years very anxiety filled years here. Very happy now in a truly professional environment.

Advice to Senior ManagementPeople here do not really listen, so advice is wasted.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Avoid This Place

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Long Beach, CA (US)

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

ProsSalary and Benefits are not bad

ConsToo many to list. Contractors are literally third class citizens particularly if you are an American. The place is run by H1s with a small scattering of Americans. Management is oppressive and completely out of touch with the yelling, threats, and pure nastiness that is this place. Expertise is completely wasted here since the average H1 has no idea what they are doing and choose to point fingers. Blame based environment where the least qualified is promoted. Don't waste your time here.

Poor Interview follow-up

Information Technology Applicant (Current Employee)
Remote, OR (US)

I have been working at Molina Healthcare full-time for less than a year

Prospromotes virtual corporate structure through remote positoins

Repetitive

Provider Service Representative (Current Employee)
Baton Rouge, LA (US)

I have been working at Molina Healthcare full-time for more than a year

ProsThe pros are a paycheck and the benefits

ConsManagement does't manage. They let people get away with not doing their work, talk all day, and basically avoid work. The people who actually do work are overloaded because of the work avoiders. The work is repetitive, you talk to the same people everyday and ask the same questions. It gets old very quickly. Many people have quit the company and management refuse to fill the positions so everyone has too many tasks and many mistakes are made.

Horrible

CRC (Former Employee)
Doral, FL (US)

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

Pros401k, that is the only good thing

ConsHires managers who don't know what they are doing. Micro-managed big time! Experienced professionals are treated like babies, as if they don't know what they are doing. Medical directors are extremely unrealistic in expectations. Extremely stressful environment!! This place is horrible, instead of working as a team, like they act as if we are the enemy. Do NOT Work here!!!! Extremely HIGH turnover!!

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat people how you would like to be treated as a professional. Stop micromanaging and trust in the experienced professional who you hired to do the job.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

GET EVERYTHING IN WRITING ESPECIALLY ON YOUR OFFER LETTER, OTHERWISE IT'S A LIE!!!!

HUMAN RESOURCES (Current Employee)
Long Beach, CA (US)

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

ProsThey pay employees to fly to corporate for 2 days. It's the last perk or thanks you'll get at Molina.

ConsYou will never see the bonus THEY SAY you are eligible to get. They only listen to family, friends & investors.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop asking employees to contribute to various MOLINA FUNDS that do nothing more than line the pocket of the MOLINAS. They had the nerve to ask employees to donate their bonuses to LOBBIEST for Molina. For example I make more than $70k. With my YEARS of service my bonus was LESS than $100 for my YEARS of service. BONUSES ARE 1.75% NOT the 5 - 12% promised. THIS WAS BEFORE TAXES AND AFTER THE STUPID MATH FORMULA THEY GIVE YOU TO FIGURE OUT WHY NO ONE IN THE DEPARTMENT DIDNT GET THE AMOUNT STATED.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Started good last two years have been hell

Registered Nurse (Current Employee)
San Antonio, TX (US)

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

ProsGreat co-workers. Collaborative team of field staff we work together and use each other as resources to get the job done. Great members. Enjoy helping the disadvantaged. Flexible schedule.

ConsMolina hires Middle and Senior management that have no experience and no idea how to perform their essential job functions. They hired a middle manager then asked her to leave or be fired. She was gone for about 10 months and then they hired her back. She had been fired by a former MCO how can we as employees know this and yet HR either doesn't t know or does not care that she is incompetent. This is widely understood and known by the MINIONS

Advice to Senior ManagementWake up and listen to the staff in the trenches. We understand how to resolve problems and apply strategic approaches however we are not consulted in matters that effect patient care and our work loads. Every soloution is a knee jerk reaction to the State coming in and giving them citations.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
