I have been working at Psychiatric Solutions

Pros

THere is a lot of opportunity to be involved in many projects and gain skills and experience. Depending on who your supervisor is you will be allowed to grow and thrive.

Cons

Administration can be very one sided and catty. When they refer to a "team" they are referring specifically to their goals and desires, not the benefit of the residents or the staff. THere is a lot of politics and you need to have a very thick skin (to deal with administration).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to the staff and care givers, they do understand what is needed for the safety of the residents and staff. Do not expect them to make your life easier, even if it is in your best interest to make their work interesting and increase thier investment and loyalty. Be honest and compassionate.

    I worked at Psychiatric Solutions

    Pros

    The Right People doing the Right Job at the Right Time. The patients we treated received good care.

    Cons

    The (lack of) Corporate Support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget the field in your day to day operations.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
  2.  

    While some locations with competent CEOs were very good, if you worked at a location with a poor CEO it could be awful.

    I worked at Psychiatric Solutions full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    It was great working with difficult adolescents and seeing them succeed with the help of caring, hard working staff members.

    Cons

    Our facility was starved by the company and closed when having 6 local level CEOs in 5 years could not develop a coherent and strategic approach to providing and sustaining high quality care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually invest in programs and people rather than just making facilities attractive. While it is important to have safe and attractive facilities, it would have really been helpful if there had also been investments in making programs for patients high quality.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
