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

    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 Management

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

    I have been working at MYCS full-time (More than a 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 Management

    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 Management

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