Pros

In between jobs? Go for it.

If you are cool with serious and severe nepotism, go for it.
If you are looking for your salary worth, do not go for it.
If non existing 401K is your cup of tea, go for it.
If you like no health insurance options (only 1), go for it.
If you expect no upward career movement, go for it.
If you enjoy condesention from Directors and above, go for it.
If you are talented, leave before a contract ends. Or they will ensure the end of you.

    Pros

    MARYLAND OFFICE ONLY! I loved getting to work with the providers, the consumers, and the state. Their mission, vision, and values are wonderful. Their programs were beneficial to the providers for the most part. The doctors there were wonderful and understanding. The Care Managers are compassionate and knowledgable. They have a good PEEPS committee which tries to help the morale.

    Cons

    MARYLAND OFFICE ONLY! This place is like a high school drama. There are several people within the company who do not pull their weight. If you like teamwork, this is not the place for you. There are several people in different departments who are extremely overworked. The Care Managers have an insane caseload and there isn't enough coverage. Contract requirements haven't been met, but the people responsible aren't held accountable. If you like to get thrown under the bus, the Maryland office is for you! There is a lot of dishonesty and cliques within the company. My personal experience with this company was horrible. There are certain people who do not foster a nice working environment. It was my impression that there was a hostile working environment for some, which is unacceptable in a mental health company, and it doesn't match their mission, vision OR Values! The new management doesn't seem to be working well. Unqualified people are promoted while others are held back. I watched a coworker get railroaded after she worked so hard to please everyone and was then fired. Since then, people are worried abou their jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace certain upper management with someone who is more goal oriented to help the company and knows what is really going on in the state of MD. This person should also not be trashing the Senior VP to those under her.

    Pros

    Salary is competitive, but by the time you work all the overtime and never get any breaks for lunch, you are probably making less than at your last job per hour.

    Cons

    Workplace bullying, with some employees getting special treatment and skipping out early. Not allowed to take breaks. They will never acknowledge this, just pile the work on you and if you try to take a break, call you in for a special meeting to tell you that you are not a team player.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to run a wellness company, please allow your employees to practice wellness.
