    Too many psychiatric residents under the supervision of a too busy psychiatrist, yet "do no harm."

    I have been working at Larkin Community Hospital as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    exposure to the variety of patient/client issues.

    Cons

    Just like my title says. Too many psychiatric residents under the supervision of a too busy psychiatrist, yet "do no harm." Also: no benefits, the staff would clock out at 40 hours but stay for 15 more in fear that they will get punished or fired for not being able to do it within 40 hours. too many patients for just one caseworker.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    a good idea would be to provide leadership and management trainings to supervisors and existing managers there.

    I worked at Larkin Community Hospital full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It was a regular 9-5, Mon-Fri type of position that I held here. Good work-life balance and work rarely went beyond 5PM or on weekends.

    Location is great. It is in South Miami right around the corner from the Dadeland Mall and other retailers.

    Cons

    An overall lack of professionalism - e.g., inappropriate conversations in the office and sometimes yelling, screaming, shouting, speaking loudly and heavy laughter in the GME office which was located in a clinic at the time

    Traffic on US-1 is horrendous and most ppl will have to take US-1 to commute here

    Parking - terrible

    Benefits - ridiculously expensive health insurance premiums

    Company values, morals and work ethic - There are none. People are hired here based on their connections and friendships, not on their actual abilities or skills to perform the tasks or jobs; a lot of nepotism and favoritism

    GME Department - incompetent, unorganized, chaotic, full of laziness and dysfunction; how this hospital continues to be accredited for programs is beyond me and how the GME department hasn't fallen apart is beyond me. THIS DID NOT APPLY TO EVERYBODY IN THE GME DEPARTMENT BUT A LOT OF THEM. THERE WERE SOME TALENTED AND HARDWORKING INDIVIDUALS THERE BUT I CAN COUNT THEM ON ONE HAND.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be more competent and qualified people in this facility. From top to bottom, administration here is a mess.

    Pros

    career growth opportunities, expanding organization, and good place to start in the healthcare field for experience

    Cons

    low wages, can have an unprofessional environment, and human resources department is very unorganized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    organization, quality, competitive wages, and employee satisfaction are key to your success.
