Revolving door of upper level management
Utilization Reviewer (Current Employee) –  Minnetonka, MNJanuary 16, 2018
Continuous turn-over in upper level management. Here today, gone tomorrow. With each new person who has joined the management team there has been a "new" and "improved" way of doing things placed into practice, without every learning or understanding the Policies and Procedures in place. With the constant turn-over, trust in management has been difficult to maintain.
Pros
Committed team.
Cons
High turn-over in upper level management. Poor staffing.

Team Lead (Former Employee) –  Minnetonka, MNJanuary 2, 2018
Job was stressful but rewarding. Management challenges you but is also very supportive. The company suffered layoffs in 2017 due to unforeseen circumstances but they are making a nice recovery with their strategic planning. Insurance industry will always be vulnerable but Medica does it's best to ensure their employees are taken care of.
Pros
On site workout center, beautiful building, great benefits
Cons
High-paced environment, must work well under pressure

relatively easy call center job
Medical Communicator (Former Employee) –  Hasbrouck Heights, NJSeptember 27, 2017
It was a simple job where they asked you to call different doctor's offices to invite them to educational programs. If they had time they would talk to you and if not they would either be professional about not being interested or would be very rude. Hardest part is dealing with the receptionist at times.

Very poor belief in work/home balance
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) –  St. Charles, MOSeptember 24, 2017
There is much to be desired with this company. While not everything nor everyone are "unbecoming", There is an unfortunate lack of organization and regard for staffs' concerns. While there is a system in the manner of the work flow, there is no program for proper training in place. Employee recognition consistently falls short leaving the staff feeling unappreciated and having a lowered moral in the workplace.
Pros
Flexible hours, plenty of hands-on-training, schedule for PT is based on employee availability
Cons
Significant amounts of micro-managing, improper training, scheduling issues

I learned so much working here that I wouldn't take a day back. I have also had some great experiences working here. The most enjoyable part of the day is when we all come together and have team meetings or a company breakfast.

Medica is a for-profit culture in a non-profit world
Director, Marketing Communications (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNAugust 13, 2017
While I worked there, Medica was the insurance company of Allina Healthcare. And after being sued by the Minnesota Attorney General, the insurance company was split off on its own.

And of all the non-profit health insurance companies in Minnesota (Blue Cross and Blue Shield, Health Partners are the other two), Medica operates with the strongest for-profit metrics and culture of any of them. There is certainly nothing wrong with profit, but at what point does/should that profit as a non-profit organization be used to benefit their members?

Contract Employee (Former Employee) –  Minnetonka, MNMay 7, 2017
My manager and immediate supervisor do not have backbones and shouldn't be leading a team. Need better direction on who is doing what and what is expected of you on a daily basis.
Pros
Flexible schedule within my department and ability to work from home

Extremely busy during fourth quarter-put in many extra hours
