    Unfortunately I was over worked and under paid. However, I learned a lot of new things to put on my resume.

    I worked at MYCS full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    It's convenient to get to. I didn't have to go into the city and that's always a plus.

    Cons

    Some leadership passes the buck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize and appreciate good hardworking employees

    Waste of time!

    Former Employee - Residential Advisor in West Mifflin, PA

    I worked at MYCS full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's a pay check! They have an employer match account.

    Cons

    Incompetent people in charge. So many Backstabbers you need to wear a flack vest to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do real background checks. Do NOT take employees that previously worked together at another company and put them together again. Review mileage logs & expenditures.

    Current Employee - Residential Counselor II in McKeesport, PA
    Current Employee - Residential Counselor II in McKeesport, PA

    I have been working at MYCS full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, overtime. Good experience to work with chronic mental health and introduce yourself to group collaboration (therapists, psychiatrists, medical doctors, etc.). Good experience to build clinical writing skills.

    Cons

    Poor management and no employee incentive. Sure, there's overtime, but there are no pay raises within this position, so whether you've been there 5 years or 2 months you all make the same amount. There is also a lack of care for employees. The place is a zoo, the residents have more rights than rules so attempting to get them to do what they need to is difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try working with the residents all the time. It's easy to say "do this and do that" but until you have actually worked with them, you should listen to your employees.

    I have been working at MYCS full-time

    Pros

    Benefits and hours are great, work is rewarding.

    Cons

    It is difficult to feel respected or valued as an employee here. Management is disorganized and does nothing to keep the good employees around. Pay is very low as it is, and expectations are too high. The model they are using to run an agency is flawed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider recognizing in some way the employees who go the extra mile.

    Pros

    Great people
    Flexible Schedule
    Large amount of resources at disposal

    Cons

    Management Oblivious
    Base salary is a joke for skill set they require
    Pay increases are a joke

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to foresee what your primary business needs are going to be in the near future (and now) and plan so you can acquire and retain knowledgeable employees in the areas you require.

    Horrified by Unprofessional Management

    Former Employee - Counselor in McKeesport, PA

    I worked at MYCS

    Pros

    The actual work is fairly easy and they are very reasonable with scheduling, especially if you are a student.

    Cons

    Upper management has lost its ethics, and become hostile towards good employees. Mostly this is fear of state regulations, but rather than look at the big picture, and make positive change,management finds it easier to take no action, and blame employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember what you are in this business for, the patients. Learn new and better ways to manage your greatest asset..... your employees!

    I have been working at MYCS full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits package. You can cash in your PTO if you ever need a little extra
    Cash.

    Cons

    Non profit organization. You do not receive a raise every year, what ever your starting pay is
    What your most likely going to end up with at the end of your career. You get a bonus every 473647586 years for Christmas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start having appreciation day for the employees. We have to deal with a lot of crap
    Everyday. And stop being so snobby and prissy, walkong around like your better
    Than everybody else.
