    I worked at MHM Services full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good staff, and great benefits. Plenty of time off. Was flexible about child schedules.

    Cons

    Upper level management could be remote, and at times, seem cold.

    Advice to Management

    Have more empathy for people who choose to work in the prison systems. They are sacrificing many comforts to do so. Most of us felt called to work with prisoners.

    I have been working at MHM Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay, average benefits, regular hours. Safe environment.

    Cons

    Working in a prison is like voluntary incarceration for 40 hours a week. We are subject to most of the restrictions that inmates are held to. The management is weak, and forever rotating to even weaker, inexperienced individuals. There is little incentive to do your job thoroughly or have good attendance; you actually get more work and responsibilities because you are seen as a competent. I have never received a raise or bonus, however I was frequently asked to go above and beyond my regular job duties, work extra shifts, cover other departments, etc. There is very little disciplinary action, most of the time the person is just let go, and no one knows why or what happened.

    Advice to Management

    Attempt to hire more educated and professional managers. They are responsible for on-boarding competent and appropriate staff. Choose employees that have experience in the corrections field, because "regular" people are hard to convert and sometimes never get "it". A degree does not automatically make someone appropriate for a management job. Years of experience and training, as well as on-going education, will most likely be the right candidate.

    Pros

    Commendable employees in the prisons, jails and hospitals.
    Winning lots of contracts.

    Increases for upper management but not for lower paid employees like MH workers. HR in corp office seem to be less organized in last 2 years. Fast growth but need to improve processes.

    Pros

    A regular paycheck and health insurance.

    Cons

    No oversight of supervisors, oblivious of assault on employees or safety concerns, no raises for 5 to 8 years,if ever, keeping providers who are difficult to replace no matter how dreadful their performance, antiquarian medical records leading to enormous confusion and error. Demoralizing, depressing, discouraging. Good clinicians are out the door as soon as they find other employment. Review process -- what?

    Advice to Management

    Who can blame management when there is no meaningful performance oversight from the contracting agency?? And why? The general public has zero concern for convicts, so state and private agencies can do what they like. No one is watching - no one cares. How do you sleep at night the way you run this health care business serving society's most vulnerable population? Civil servants who are supposed to be vigilant are just as culpable. Thriving on the
    traditional secrecy and state government good old boy politics of correctional departments.

    Great team spirit among the employees in the Medical Dept. I'm being given many opportunities to learn and grow as a CCMA.

    Cons

    When information is needed regarding Human Resources, it takes some effort to get it in a timely manner. At our location we are blocked from access to the website where we can print forms.
