Director of Nursing (Former Employee) – Ocala, FL – April 20, 2018
Came in as a director. Was offered minimal assistance or guidance to work effectively. If you do not do things their way they will find a reason to fire you. Was belittled, harassed, and threatened by management. Overall I love the correctional environment, the people who worked for me were great, the company itself is a disorganized, unsupportive, money hungry mess. Don't settle for working with MHM.
I see across the board management is the issue with this company
Not a follower (Former Employee) – Ocala, FL – April 4, 2018
This is the worst company I have ever worked for. The favortism, lack of support and respect, lack of adequate staffing, and no follow thru with issues is beyond imaginable. The staff is usualy great until they are burned out and frustrated. The truely good working people never stay and the company doesn't care. You will be fine with this company if you have no values and ethics. They only want people that are followers and don't question anything. Kiss up and take no responsibility are the priorities of this company.
The inmates were nicer than the bosses/management, etc. This was the most horrible position I have ever held, and I have been a mental health provider (licensed for over 5 years, but in system for about 15 years), Management is NOT supportive. You will be micromanaged, ridiculed, and demeaned if your position is anything like mine.
Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner (Former Employee) – Camp Hill, PA – March 31, 2018
This job requires flexibility, autonomy, and strong investment. Administration is often not supportive of providers and tends to side with Department of Corrections or please client rather than employees. Limited loyalty.
Working in corrections often is stressful, inmates and staff are often manipulative and uncooperative.
Hardest part of job was understaffing at prison sites - inability to retain staff.
Best part of the job is constant intellectual challenge and education regarding difficult and complicated patients. I would have loved the job with better administration the clinical work was exceptional if you like challenge
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Meridian, MS – March 30, 2018
This is not a good company to work for. If the manger gets mad at anything you do you will be fired. I worked to help people and I was fired. I did not get the proper training because they would not let the AA come back and train me when I got in my own office. They fired me on a recruiting policy I knew nothing about. I worked long hours.

Your boss will make a huge difference here. If you like them, it will be an ok job, but if you don't, you'll need to start looking for another job. This is a very stable job with a stable check with lots of Paid time off but few other benefits. All the benefits cost money, they do match some money for the 401K and HSA but thats it. The benefits are about average price, only slightly below market prices.
Security Officers often refuse to let you see inmates for many reasons

Bosses are best friends so you never have anyone to talk to in confidence....Other bosses slept their way up the totum pole You can never do enough for them without them complaining about something Loved my coworkers but felt like i was being harrassed before i eventually quit One nurse told me if i went out an got drunk with our boss she would love me forever and do whatever you wanted that to me is very poor management Dont go to night shift the doctor will get mad if you even sit in her chair which is not her chair, she didnt pay for it!

Mental Health Therapist (Former Employee) – Harvest, AL – January 9, 2018
I worked as a mental health professional with male inmates who were diagnosed serious mental health illnesses. I learned the importance of comprehensive for the treatment of patients through collaboration with a competent team.
Site Administrator (Current Employee) – Wetumpka, AL – December 31, 2017
Great company to work for. The management team is highly supportive. They offer a collaborative and solution focused approach to dealing with staff challenges. Most challenges occur while working inside of a prison. There are many problems within the prisons in Alabama which makes it hard to maintain true professionals.
