    I have been working at MHM Services as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Always available shifts to pick up.

    Cons

    New middle management micromanages to the fullest extent. She is inexperienced in corrections and doesn't have a clue. New forms are being created unnecessarily and revised every week. They have a calendar online that makes it look like there is actual coverage but that's to make the state think that they are fulfilling contract obligations. New manager is not utilizing any software or other ways to track data. Staff are expected to enter data on excel spreadsheet daily, which is so outdated. If you work for MHM do not expect a raise. I received .15 cent raise in three years there. It's pathetic. Corporate doesn't care that there is high turnover. They are only interested in warm bodies, no matter how incompetent the staff are.

    Advice to Management

    Quit hiring young and inexperienced people who have limited knowledge about effective data tracking techniques and poor communication skills. Hire those who are seasoned in corrections. Corrections operates differently than community mental health.

    I have been working at MHM Services full-time (More than a year)

    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 Management

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

    I have been working at MHM Services as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Health insurance is good. Benefits as far as paid days off is a joke because you have to find your own coverage

    Cons

    You are Dispensable! They don't care about employees and prove this in the way they treat workers. Regional manager lies and will say anything to make himself sound good but doesn't follow through. As long as they have a warm body they don't care about the quality of or the competency of that worker. The work environment is filthy. The regional manager is famous for saying if workers don't like things than they can leave., whether the worker's concern is valid or not. There is so much disorganization and lack of communication that it creates a chaotic work environment. The right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing! The very worst management I have ever been witness to. I will never work for a contract provider ever again.!

    Advice to Management

    Come to the actual work place and know your workers and conditions of workplace

    I worked at MHM Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are absolutely no cons to working for this employer

    Cons

    Extremely low employee morale, many complaints about direct supervisor (coordinator) as well as with regional office (program manager and above), licensed professionals are supervised by UNLICENSED persons, poor compensation, difficult to use earned leave, you are dispensable and only needed to fill a shift, employees disclose feeling threatened to lose their jobs, clients are not valued and are provided substandard services.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to COO: clean house and get a team of persons who do not lose focus of the company's so-called mission (if they even have one). For all we know their mission could be to provide the minimum of services with the least of resources. Forget about ethics!!

    I have been working at MHM Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You WILL be hired for the job because they desperately need employees (clinicians/counselors).

    Cons

    Too many to list. See review summary.

    Advice to Management

    I was totally unaware of the extremely low employee morale upon hire. My first day there I was confronted with disgruntled employees who were responsible for "training" me. Everyone has issues with the direct supervisor as well as with regional management. Almost every employee there was actively seeking other employment. In the shirt number of months I was there, 5 employees departed. Compensation is extremely poor, considering YOU must be licensed, experienced, knowledgable, and willing to work in an at risk environment. However, YOU will be supervised by unlicensed persons. You earn a generous amount of leave, but will have difficulty when you try to use it. You will be hired for the position because they are always in desperate need of someone to fill a shift for the moment, hour, day, or week. Know that you are dispensable and when you showthat you have a backbone you will be considered unvooperative and targeted. If you attempt to get any issues resolved utilizing regional management, they will inform the other party (direct supervisor) and collectively go against you. Many employees express feeling threatened (to lose their jobs) on a basis. The tension amongst the staff is unbelievable. Neither are you or the clientele are valued. MHM's only concern is meeting the minimum requirements of their contract. Know, they recently LOST their contract for the Delaware corrections facility due to their poor performance. Best of luck.
