Cons: Upper management hard to get in touch with
I enjoyed working at PHMC. Like all jobs, it was tough at times, however, there was never a dull moment working at PHMC, which is why I enjoyed the job so much.

High turnover, low morale
Case Manager (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PAMarch 17, 2015
Pros: Ready availability of positions
Cons: High turnover, low morale, unresponsive management, low pay
Not only is PHMC a total dead end but it's gotten worse over time and right now some divisions are basically in a state of chaos. Qualified people who can leave, do. Middle management is packed full of people who seem either oblivious to the turmoil, don't care about it, or don't know what to do about it. When I started there it was a place where people stayed for their entire careers but many of those people have been pushed out in favor of younger, cheaper employees. That strategy probably seemed good for the bottom line, but it created a revolving door scenario where nobody stays for very long. The pay is terrible, working conditions can be terrible and you can't expect any support from management. Don't expect to advance, don't expect pay increases. I guess PHMC is good for what most people are using it for right now, which is a fall back place where you can get a job easily because there are always so many openings, but nobody goes there with an intention to stay. If you want something short term, it may work out for you.

Worked there for 3 years as a FIR CM. Paid 32 K for a caseload over 100. Managers micro manage and fault at every chance. President of PHMC makes 800 K. This public record. PHMC is about making money to keep the contracts alive.

Ok place to work with lots of unknown
Forensic Clinical Evaluator (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PAOctober 4, 2014
The typical day at work is working with people from all different cultural background. The difficult part of the job is that you do not have control over your schedule because of the unknow working environment of the prison population and staff. You have to be part of a cultural class in order to move up the ladder. It is a dead end place for most people.

Large company with great opportunities to network.
IPP Case Manager (Current Employee), Philadelphia, PAAugust 25, 2014
Pros: beautiful, center city office.
Cons: anxiously busy.
This job is meant for someone who doesn't mind multi-tasking. As a Case Manager you must be comfortable with constant traveling and working on the go. In addition you are required to keep detailed notes reagrding your days work. This company would get one star for training their employees so if you do not know something getting used to asking fellow co-workers or supervisors.

They lie on you then terminate you.
Transporter (Former Employee), Ambler, PaMay 14, 2014
Pros: free lunch
Cons: no pay increase
Absolutely no room for growth. Was terminated based on lies that human resource said she was told to write by PHMC. Never had a verbal or written warning. All evaluations were excellent. Had a good report with every one. Very courteous and professional. I gave so much of myself to that place. They couldn't afford my position any more but instead of being truthful, they lied and said I used the vehicle for personal use because I had to use the bathroom which by the way, I never made it because someone hit the vehicle while I was in it and when I got out, another person hit the vehicle and T.V. didn't even bother to see if I was okay. And for dishonesty and failure to perform job. I emailed and called them to explain to me what I was dishonest about and what assignment did I fail to perform, but was told by hr that thats what she was told to say. I've always done my work and have never been dishonest. They had an employee there that tried to run me over. She didn't get fired for that and hr knew about her temper. They aren't looking to replace my position either. So many staff is leaving T.V. And I can't understand how the executive director at T.V. Diana F. doesn't speak to her staff. I went to appeal my position but they said no. They can't lie about the appeal meeting because I recorded it. T.V. is not a good place to work. I would not recommend it.

A typical day
Intensive Care Case Manager (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PaDecember 18, 2013
Pros: great support team and great clients
Cons: difficult program director
A typical work day entailed face to face meetings with clients. CPR Meetings with OSH auditor, Program Director, and PHMC supervision team: case manager and case manager supervisor. The most difficult portion of my time with PHMC was working with the program director of the program I was assigned too. Which lead to me taking a Verbal De-escalation course provided by CWG (Children Work Group). Taking the course was a great experience and I learned that many situations can be resolved as long as both people are honest, direct, and considerate of others.The most enjoyable portion of my job were my phmc co-workers, they were always prepared with great advice, support, and examples of how the case managers before me completed their tasks and also dealt with the program director.

awful
worker bee (Former Employee), philadelphiaOctober 11, 2013
Pros: non
Cons: management
A typical day at work involved being watched by management to make sure I was at my desk, being questioned about every move I made, being micro-managed and having no autonomy whatsover. Management is THE problem at PHMC. The people at the top make huge salaries while the worker bees get paid a pittance and are expected to work non-stop while management looks on. There is no rooom for advancement and no encouragement to flourish as a human being. PHMC advertises itself as a non-profit while raking in millions of dollars yearly, don't let them fool you. They are not concerned with helping clients or being good to their employees. They are in the money making business to keep their top one per cent fat and happy.

RUN as fast as you can
ChildLink (Current Employee), Philadelphia, PAOctober 2, 2013
Pros: absolutely none
Cons: pay, co-workers, management, did i say pay?
A typical day of work for me includes being pulled from this department to that department because not only do they hire incompetent people, they allow people who have become old, rigid, and complacent to stay far longer than they deserve. I've learned that advancement has nothing to do with who is qualified for the job here, it's solely based on who likes who, who doesn't like who, who will kiss up, and who will accept the horrible pay. The management sucks here. Just because you have the qualifications, does NOT mean you are qualified. They are cluesless about business. Co-workers here are okay people, but everyone is disgruntled. I personally wouldn't trust anyone farther than you can throw them, there is a LOT of gossiping, a LOT of people who mind everyone else's business but their own, just a lot of fakery, they smile in your face and talk about you as you walk away. It's pathetic really. The hardest part of the job is working with incompetent people, being managed by incompetent people, and the lack of hard work. No one wants to do anything. The most enjoyable part of the job is during the summer months when we get out at 3pm. Otherwise there isn't a thing enjoyable about this place. If you expect to get paid what you deserve, do not apply. If you expect to work with people capable of doing their job, do not apply. Just don't apply at all, you can thank me later.
