    The top brass don't think intensive psychiatric care is important but the staff who provide the care do.

    I have been working at San Francisco General Hospital full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    You get to provide care to people who really need it. Public hospitals are the safety net for people with mental illnesses who would otherwise go without care. The patients are often truly grateful for your services - even though they are involuntary patients.The salary and benefits are excellent. I've worked with some really great people who I've learned a lot from. There are Grand Rounds Weekly and they have excellent presentations.

    Cons

    Because the salary and benefits are good, some of my colleagues are working here pretty much just for those and not particularly because they want to help the patients. They do the bare minimum and are a pain in the you know what to work with. Top management treat staff like cattle - like you should be happy to have a g-d job. The direct supervisor I had wasn't like this but she was fighting her bosses and the bureaucracy's attitude toward us 24/7.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider spending some time (even if it's one day a year) on each unit. Attend rounds, sit in on groups, look at some charts, etc. Don't just rely on the reports of middle managers. Also, it might give you an interest in the field of psychiatry and the staff who work there - something it seems you don't currently have.
