    Pros

    Coworkers and most supervisors at the local level were great to work with.
    Working with patients is very rewarding (if that is where your heart is).

    Cons

    The pay is insulting. Upper management continues to pour the orange Kool-Aid down everyone's throat. Tries to convince you they pay "fair market wages". If you question this, you are a "trouble maker". Also some of the staff (non-degreed) who have access to employees' private information does not use confidentiality.

    Advice to Management

    The management at the local level just has to do what they're told. I really do not have advice for them other than to look for other employment because all of their jobs are threatened at least on a weekly basis.

    Pros

    Loved my job for a long time prior to take over. Working with clients was wonderful and I
    could see the difference my work was making in their lives.

    Cons

    When take over was in progress I was happy thinking the favoritism would be resolved and policy would change such as family working together and convicted felons would be removed from positions. All that happened was the top was given new titles. RN's replaced by inexperienced LPN's and new grads.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up. No doubt I will be reading about a sentinel event in the newspaper soon. What ever happened to exit interviews. After you have had an employee for yrs don't you wonder why in this job market they would quit?? Poor compliance with safety issues. Fall precautions safe detox. Multiple Med errors by incompetent staff overlooked and discarded. Large staff turn over.

    Work with at-risk-kids, can be reward but also frustrating

    Pros

    You get to work with kids and hopefully make a positive impact on their lives. Working at the site is interesting because of the kids interacting but it is also a rather grim place

    Cons

    First kid I worked with didn't listen to anything I said and was %100 defiant. Sometimes difficult to understand exactly where you fit in.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up the main facility. That is my my main concern with Desert Hills up until this point just go
