They caused clinicians to go from contract to salaried for same job performed
Licensed Clinical Social Worker (Former Employee) – MCAS Beaufort, SC – July 18, 2018
Before Magellan got into the govdrnment contracts business at differing military bases, clinicians were able to travel, providing living accomodations to avoid moving permanent residence. We used to make $50 an hour for 7 days a week, on call and full time. When Magellan came in, the pay dropped in half. They ruined the culture of veteran clinicians who provided services.
Former MHN employees hired each other to work at Magellan. Nepotism at its finest.
Magellan crummy in comparison to former companies who had contracts. Made it so that if you worked for that pay, you were selling out or settling.
Management not honest, caused clinicians to be paranoid of each other. Promoted separatism within the team at the sites.
Some of us required to live in the State or local area. Played favorites. Others from other states were afforded contract pay and hotel accomodations. And, it was no secret.
Management supervisors using snitches looking for negatives to support a supervisor we NEVER met who only live 2 states away..
Can't fulfil their children's services part of the contract because of nature of assignment - no office, bad reputation with employees who were honest about job environment with other clinicians considering job.
Insulting pay, insulting supervisors, negative company culture.
I have worked in this capacity at four different bases. I know Magellan and can compare to other gov. contractors.
Job with benefits. Good for those with over age 68 who could earn as much as.
Half as much pay as former gov. contractor providing identical services, No office whatsoever when work with children - just "walk-around" services
