    I worked at Lahey Health Behavioral Services

    Pros

    Honestly can not think of any pros to working here.

    Cons

    Management is a circus. All they care about is money and gossip. Even if you're a hard working employee, it wont get you far. In order to get recognition you have to be willing to cross all your coworkers. No safety there whatsoever. The turn around rate is so high, because no one wants to stay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to ALL your employees and really focus on the ones who are doing a good job rather to the ones feeding you information in order to secure their jobs. Quit all the gossip and back stabbing and have some compassion for your employees.

    I worked at Lahey Health Behavioral Services

    Pros

    Excellent salary, very good benefits, diversity of patient population. Great staff. Good admin staff. Opportunities for professional development paid by Lahey.

    Cons

    The amount of patients they wanted you to see was unreasonable. There was very little support and a void of leadership. Grueling schedule.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More focus on behavioral health treatment and more thought about what clinicians really need to do their jobs well.

    Pros

    If you like substance abuse counseling this is the job!

    Cons

    High client turnover rate and high employee turnover rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help the case manager's with psych social assessments every so often, run a group and get a feel for the clients from outside your office. Treat the interns with more respect and let them ease into the job, don't take advantage of people who are trying to learn.

    I have been working at Lahey Health Behavioral Services as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    can work lots of shifts - people are always quitting and/or calling out

    Cons

    very dysfunctional system - downright broken

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    try caring about employees. Try communicating honestly and effectively. Try problem solving, rather than shoving problems under the rug and pathologizing people who bring problems to your attention.

    I have been working at Lahey Health Behavioral Services

    Pros

    NBHP benefitted from the Lahey conglomeration.

    Cons

    Maybe the Lahey conglomerate has a good image, but it treats the mental health employees very poorly. Management's response is 'industry standards' that's unfortunate, sad, and leads many to leave. I hope if I ever needed medical assistance at Lahey it wouldn't be just standard, come to think of it I probably can't afford to get sick!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When all is said and done most people make little more that minimum wage here (subtract insurance and taxes from the low-paying jobs), and actually are entitled to state assistance - does that seem odd. If you wonder why orientations happen every week it is due to the high turnover of employees. Please work towards just wages for the people you say your appreciate.
