Pros

MHS is very good about promoting from within. There are also may opportunities for training and community involvement.

Cons

The pay flat out sucks. MHS is a non-profit so supposedly can not afford to pay their staff the going market rate. A lot of senior people were promoted from within the company and were promoted too quickly and do not possess the managerial skills needed to be good, productive and consistent managers. Everyone seems to be very scared of breaking the chain of command even when it is not clear what the chain is.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Empower your people in supervisory positions to make decisions and then support the decision. It becomes ridiculous when a letter can't be grammatically corrected without asking the original writer if it is ok to correct it (the is just an example - there are daily instances of this type of micro management obvious is the entire company).

    I have been working at Mental Health Systems full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    love the work-life balance program hours are 7:30-4pm and program is closed when everyone goes home! Lots of holidays including birthday holiday and floating holiday, access to all company forms and information on a portal, very high tech company with IT assistance, opportunity for growth, all programs are different, everyone cares about the clients, and opportunity to apply at other programs if you want to grow within or try something new, experience with electronic health record, great stepping stone as you are working county programs, lots of trainings available, comfortable office setting. Love working for MHS!

    Cons

    pay is lower in certain positions than others in the field such as clinical positions, no company parties which means you don't meet too many people outside of your program if you aren't sharing a building, or have any reason to go to the home office.
