    Pros

    High quality training and experience. Overall, the staff and leadership are friendly, easy to work with, and open in terms of communication.

    Cons

    The work load can be rather demanding, especially if you are not great with time management, but that also serves as an opportunity for personal and professional development.

    I worked at Aurora Behavioral Health Care

    Pros

    Provides potential for depth and breadth of experience for new grads and interns. Patients are treated respectfully. The MD team is outstanding and wonderful to work with.

    Cons

    The company is not interested in collaborative practice and do not provide an advanced practice environment for experienced clinicians. Very poor benefits and executive level controls clinical operations without the professional credential to do so.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow the Medical Director and clinical professionals to do their jobs and improve support to nursing staff including training and education on clinical competencies. Reduce workload of Social Services to improve patient treatment and continity of care.

    Questionable safety and low morale

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Aurora Behavioral Health Care

    Pros

    There are many front line staff in all departments that are amazing to work with, though they are usually burnt out from the management system.

    Cons

    The administration and management micro-manage everything and worry only of the bottom-line. Poor health benefits, no matching 401K, high turnover and dissatisfaction, no room for advancement, lack of training, safety concerns on the floor with other employees that have not been given safety training, and no work-life balance because there is never enough staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people so patients and staff can be safe and some of the great people there can actually be happy to go to work. More than 2 days of training would also help to stay safe and give patients better care.

    I worked at Aurora Behavioral Health Care full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Free meal during orientation and it's a newly constructed building.

    Cons

    The micro-militaristic management style was just too much to bear. The place in Santa Rosa, has a high turnover ratio, which may be a business decision of the higher management. To some extent, one can sense that the management has decided that to hire, fire, let people quick like it's another day in the office will not hurt the bottom line, i.e. money. The peon lowly staff are micro-managed; most of the upper plebeian Lvn's and Rn's do not have a good sense of leadership other than "my way or the highway" approach. One cannot fully blame these petty leaders, however. They have been constantly told by upper management that their jobs are dependent on the performance of the lower peons, which make it hard for the lower peons, because in turn, there are too many bosses.

    This may be a good place for docile, passive and meekly workers who want to start out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are making money with your current approach and style: don't change anything.

    Pros

    Lots of hours if you enjoy working over time.

    Cons

    People do not have any sense of job security because administration will terminate for multiple reasons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decrease employee turnover by implementing staff development programs. Bridge the gap between upper management and the employees on the floor.

    I worked at Aurora Behavioral Health Care full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fast-paced work environment and great pay, plus senior management is very knowledgeable. Time-off is hard to get, and hours are always long.

    Cons

    Senior management does not treat subordinates with respect, which makes for a difficult work environment. The hospital is also run like a business and patient care is sacrificed for the sake of making more money in some cases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think more about patient care and respect your employees more.

    I worked at Aurora Behavioral Health Care full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The money is competitive. Some doctors are nice. Some nurses talk to lowly non-clinical staff as well. Some of their buildings and facades look nice to the public.

    Cons

    Never trust anybody. Departments are set up against each other. People who you thought were friends get promoted and turn on you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loyalty to your employees instead of the almighty buck is a good start.

    Pros

    Decent pay. Lots of free food and juice tea and coffee.

    Cons

    Horrible documentation standards. They actually lose patient information all the time and HIPAA violations EVERYWHERE. Unlicensed social workers who don't care about the patients. Everyone who works there seem really unhappy and are treated like they do not matter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to kepp your staff longer than just a few months.

    This company has no structure or foundation in place. Management is horrible, a bunch of dictators that will never allow you to contribute your thoughts and ideas to make things better.
