Challenging, room to go, excellent immediate management
Administrative Support (Current Employee) – Vienna, VA – July 27, 2018
I have found my work at MHM to be challenging, yet exciting. My management team is fair and leads well. I truly feel supported and encouraged. I have experienced growth myself and witnessed this with fellow employees. Everyone works well together for the most part. Every day is different and there is always something new to learn.
Psychiatric RN (Current Employee) – Maryland – July 21, 2018
MHM wins contracts with government by bidding the lowest, therefore paying pennies for work that requires highly skilled staff. Many of the nurses hired have no idea what they're doing, but obviously got jobs because they will work for low wages. The environment in the prison is not as bad as you'd think. The detainees are polite and grateful for the help we provide. MHM supervisors are AWESOME! They care about you and genuinely want to help you be successful.
Licensed Mental Health Professional (Former Employee) – Wetumpka, AL – June 25, 2018
Most enjoyable part of job was the opportunity to treat severe mentally ill patients in an effective manner, to work with a team consisting of psychologist, psychiatrist and other counselors. Hardest part of job was under staffing of clinicians to work with a huge population rendering treatment temporary at best which is unfortunate for patients. Also, concern for safety in environment due to under staffing of prison guards.
Benefits, team work, compensation
Lack of time to treat each patient. Challenge to work/life balance
Unorganized and stressful. Decent pay and fair benefits
N/a (Former Employee) – Florida – May 31, 2018
Very unorganized from the time of the interview until resignation. Poor training, unclear expectations, and management seems to have conflicting opinions which impact job responsibilities that vary from day to day. Stressful and somewhat chaotic work environment- not due to the inmates but due to the ways scheduled are managed. The pay is higher than others in the area and many people that work there are very nice. The benefits are average.
The management here is horrible.Manager I had was able to get away with inappropriate behavior for few years until so many complaints against her she was finally looked at and fired but it took along time and involved alot of people.
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Florida – May 25, 2018
This is the worst company I have ever worked for. Lack of sensibility and compassion. If you break a leg, please go to work... 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.
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

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.
