    Pros

    Great place to work. Employees opinions are valued. Leaders work along side you and care. They want to do what is right and not just do what has been done for 20 years because that is the way it is. This organization places value on those working here, the community it serves and wants to make it a better place to work. I love the improvements they have made to both physical spaces and client care areas. Teams work well together and people really do care about their coworkers.

    Cons

    Change is hard in any organization and NCHC is trying to change the ways of the past and look toward a healthier future. This can be challenging for any business. Balancing improvements and change with resources is a challenge, however this management team wants to do what is right. This is not a con, but makes for a challenging job. Work without challenges is boring.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. For a business to care about their employees as much as those they serve is rare. Always keep things into perspective and let your teams know how much they are valued.

    Pros

    Most of your coworkers are friendly, helpful. And caring. compensation competitive. At first look benefits are appealing, including health dental vision flex spending and state of Wisconsin retirement system.

    Cons

    There is a severe divide between administration and workers. Exempt employees can expect to work long hours and have little or no input into policies that affect their position, the quality of their work, and especially their clients. If you were to walk through the halls of outpatient services during work hours, you would see very few clinicians smiling or with open doors. This is due to a feeling of opression and overwork. Conversely the outpatient services management team appears to have not enough to do, other than identifying employees weaknesses, attending meetings and creating unnecessary, time wasting meetings for staff. The electronic Healthcare documentation software they chose and implemented a year ago is excessively burdensome to clinicians. Management tells employees it is okay that they are struggling because it's a new system and not to be too hard on themselves. However the expectation of productivity and accurate documentation has not been adjusted accordingly. Therefore the clinicians are required to work many more hours. When mistakes are made management becomes impatient and sends demeaning memos.

    Advice to Management

    Attitude comes from the top down. If you want your employees to have a positive attitude and presentation to the community then you need to treat your employees with respect and dignity. Your motto is Person-Centered Outcome Focused. Its true, you focus on outcomes but only outcomes. Have you considered the value of your outcomes? Where is your compassion and your concern about client care? Stop using corporate jargon and start listening to your employees. They have much more wisdom then you give them credit.

    Toxic Work Environment

    I worked at North Central Health Care full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Since there is a 20 word minimum I have to expand on this and make this as long as possible as I explain the only good thing was the amount of pay.

    Cons

    NCHC does not care about the employees; only what the employees can produce. So much emphasis is placed on productivity, the client is no longer the focus, although they claim it is. As a mental health facility, you'd think NCHC would be a positive,nurturing place to work- however this is not the case!! You are told you are replaceable on a daily basis, your self-esteem is zapped, and your confidence stolen. Furthermore, management has it's "favorites" and acts like a highschool clique with the Ice Queen/ Grim Reeper leading pack and several clonies with the same personality following behind her.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of all upper management. Treat your employees with the respect they deserve. Put the focus back on the client.

    Upper management looks out for themselves not the employees.

    Pros

    Making a difference in the lives of others, most of the supervisors are wonderful. Great coworkers, we are a family. Good medical insurance with a Health reimbursement account

    Cons

    HR does not back up the employees Have taken away alot of benefits recently Upper management says they want to keep employees informed but are very selective in what they actually tell you leaving employees to not trust them There have been alot of jobs eliminated, and people are on edge each day not knowing if it is your last day. They seem to eliminate positions of people who use the insurance The CEO does not seem to care about the clients that loose support as programs are cut nor about employees..all just a number.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest to employees, employees are stressed as they do not know if their job will be eliminated & do not trust upper management. Show compassion too empolyees & clients. Set up a system for reviews where you are reviewed by your co-workers also, for more accurate reviews. Alot of supervisors do not have alot of contact with their employees & thus cannot fairly review.
