    I worked at Mental Health Cooperative full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working at mhc has given me experience in the field that I can use moving forward to get my masters. It is a fast paced job, that offers awesome benefits and the opportunity for advancement in all areas. I enjoyed being able to schedule my days and was able to easily meet deadline requirements. I highly recommend a position at mental health cooperative for anyone entering the social work/psychology field.

    Cons

    Communication on all levels could be improved some

    I have been working at Mental Health Cooperative full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    co-workers, PTO/benefits. I had to add more text to proceed.

    Cons

    very low pay, maximum of 5% annual increase - if making $30k, thats about $60 more per bi-weekly check. low chance (if any) for a monthly bonus for going well beyond your monthly goal. Very high staff turn over.

    Advice to Management

    increase pay. the reason people work is to make money to support themselves and family.

    I have been working at Mental Health Cooperative full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    PTO and Insurance is really good.

    Cons

    Leadership will not stand up to one another even when they know that wrong is being done. You work very hard and they will not give you credit. Leadership will suck the life out of you and then kick you to the curb. They will threaten and talk to you like you are a ignorant dog thinking this is going to motivate. The upper leadership is very confused on how to motive staff.

    Advice to Management

    Please learn how to appreciate individuals. Stop treating people so harsh under the disguise of that being a leadership style. Look around...look at the company turnover.

    I worked at Mental Health Cooperative full-time

    Pros

    The line staff makes the place work. There are outstanding members of each team that need to be cultivated and grown into leaders. It is something that needs to be done.

    Cons

    The management has been in place way too long and has lost touch with the staff and the patient population. There needs to be a revamping of the leadership. They are just not capable of moving the company forward. They are stuck in 1997.

    Advice to Management

    The Board needs to start taking a long, hard look at decisions the current management makes concerning staffing and contracts. The management hires or promotes weak people so they can be controlled. It will lead to the demise of this company.

    Pros

    PTO and helping make a difference

    Cons

    Ridiculously low pay (expect to take home about a little over $400 a week), Extremely high turnover rate, & Unrealistic expectations

    Advice to Management

    The values of the company are good, but honestly - treat your employees better! Pay them better and set realistic expectations. When the employee morale is soooooooo low... ultimately it affects the consumers. GET IT TOGETHER!

    You really get to make a difference in people's lives, and if you put in effort, you can form real therapeutic relationships

    Not the greatest pay (it's a nonprofit, that's to be expected), and seeing the frequency of employee turnover is a bummer
