Difficult job but often personally and professionally rewarding when one is able to surmount challenges

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Brattleboro, VT

I worked at Brattleboro Retreat full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Mission is important, stretches one's professional skills due to diversity of patients, most other employees are dedicated professionals and supportive colleagues, CME opportunities onsite

Cons

Leadership not always responsive to concerns of frontline staff, compensation needs adjustment, benefits sacrificed when financial hardship of institution arises, work area in my department was substandard and shamefully shabby

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen and respond to front line staff's concern about safety issues, increase employer contribution to retirement plan, do market comparison of salaries, clean up HR department and hire staff there whose experience matches the size the Retreat's employee number has become

    Pros

    Great 1:1 experience impacting lives. Membership w/Nursing Union, so mandate pay and hourly shift differentials make great position for single individuals

    Cons

    It is a psychiatric hospital, be prepared for the experience. However, training is long and depends on the floor.
