    I have been working at MHM Services full-time

    Pros

    Unable to truthfully list one.

    Cons

    Employees are unappreciated and mistreated and very much kept in the dark about matters that should be made known. There is absolutely no possibility for growth. Common hire tactic is the Bait & Switch. Lack of assistance from supervisors to strive for better concerning their support staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat professionals with respect at all times. Listen to what they might have to offer. Acknowledge the need for promotion in compensation when it is well deserved instead of just worrying about yourself. The Bait and Switch practice was quickly seen after hire. Very disheartening and I do hope many will read this to be aware of what this company is truly like before applying. Although one could apply for the sake of having a job until a better company posts positions that knows how to take care of their employees, not the company's profits first.

    I have been working at MHM Services full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Excellent clincical experience, pay is great for an entry level social work position, they will hire you as license eligible, good vacation time, they provide weekly supervision by a licensed clinician, extensive training/orientation, flexible hours, management is supportive, CEU reimbursement, decent benefits.

    Cons

    Can be a stressful working environment, while the training was extensive, at times it was repetitive, can be challenging to take vacation at times due to the workload.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be aware of the caseload each staff member is managing, as well as traits unique to each site that may impact how busy clinicians are.

    Pros

    Experience the extraordinary in human behavior. If you can make it here, you'll make it anywhere.

    Cons

    Company is cheap; high turnover; support from regional and national offices is lacking; stat driven focus, not quality. Ample PDO time with less opportunity to utilize it due to short staffing and having to negotiate coverage of crisis shifts during times of absence; extreme treatment limitations due to DOC security issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow a conscience.

    Pros

    Good benefit package, includes: dental, vision and medical.
    Excellent management in Northern CA.

    Cons

    Training does not exist the philosophy is sink or swim and if you do ask for assistance, you''ll never get an answer.
    MHM Psy.D's are burning their bridges with Jail staff, County staff and Court officials, Program Director's are destroying MHM's name for their own agenda. Lunch breaks are frowned on and Federal mandated breaks, do not exist in MHM.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do background checks on your staff, you have felons working with felons.
    MHM Northern California Management needs to check-out the staff in the So. CA offices very carefully.

    I worked at MHM Services full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefit package, and you can earn a lot of personal/sick/vacation time. Their company orientation is also very thorough, covering everything in the employee handbook.
    The nurses who had worked in the prison helped each other out

    Cons

    There's a high turnover rate, and while I was there it was common for all of us nurses to be forced to stay and work an extra shift because of call outs and short staffing. This could happen 3-4 times a week. Everyone was exhausted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your nurses when they say there are issues with the Department of Corrections staff and help them to work it out. These issues don't happen often, but we are on their turf and the DOC staff can make our jobs miserable. Support your nurses and ancillary staff.

    Pros

    At least you have a job.

    Cons

    They don't pay you the right amount that you earned. You accrue all this leave, but are not allowed to use it d/t "coverage needs". The regional manager is verbally abusive, and talks about you behind your back to medical staff, which gives you a bad reputation amongst your peers. And she is a pathological liar. State management does not care what goes on on the site, as long as that money from the contract is coming in. Quick to fire, slow to hire. Then they expect the remaining employees to pick up the slack, like we don't have lives of our own. Advice to the wise if you are looking for a decent job: RUN Forrest! RUN!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire yourself. Replace yourself with people who are equitable, fair, and true professionals.

    I worked at MHM Services full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Cannot come up with any pros other than decent hourly wage for experienced nurses

    Cons

    Dishonest, unethical company. Managerial staff not supportive of staff. Will not listen to staff concerns about issues even when it involves patient care. Management will throw underlings under the bus when issues do arise, to cover their own hides, even when said concerns were brought to their attention many times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some responsibility, rather than always laying blame. Listen to you staff on the front lines. Grow a conscience. Stop terminating long standing, higher paid, ethical employees, to hire inexperienced lower pay staff.That just stinks.

    I worked at MHM Services full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    No pros. only redeeming quality is decent pay rate for experienced staff. Problem is you may not hold on to job as they find way to terminate or drive out higher compensated staff

    Cons

    Management not supportive of subordinates. Continual lying, backpedalling, & throwing underlings under the bus to cover their own hides.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Smarten up, get a conscious, or move into a different industry. You do not belong in public healthcare. In the meantime clean out the "good old boys" and start with actual experienced, ethical and supportive management.

    Pros

    Pay was adequate
    Nothing else otherwise

    Cons

    Company hired me with very little training. They gave no expectations on daily activity and when I was meeting expectations per the contract, management said it was not good enough and gave no feedback on what would be good enough.

    Direct management would not give direct feedback. They poorly run new projects and contracts.

    Lots of turnover

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire competent managers
    Give clear expectations for your employees
    Eliminate your gossip culture

    Pros

    Do have flexible work schedules.

    Cons

    The majority of its contracts are with the prison system. The company is concerned with maintaining contracts and will not set boundaries with corrections or the wardens. This leads you open to violence and breaking your standards of practice for your licensure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to mental health law for practice and licensure.
    Think of the safety for your employees.
