    Pros

    The IT Department provided plenty of opportunities to acquire new skill sets, but you get out of it what you put in. Fellow employees have great attitudes generally and respect advice given. Access to new technology for implementation is a core paradigm of company.

    Cons

    Compensation is good, but as you acquire new skills, and put them to use, it is not often adjusted. You could take on multiple roles if individuals leave with no increase in salary.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to ensure you offer opportunities to acquire new skill sets.

  2. Overall positive, good place to start and grow professionally.

    Pros

    Colleagues are a tight-nit group; everyone works together well and fosters a positive work environment.

    Cons

    Leadership does not recognize talent or understand how to implement succession planning

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the talented people already working for you, compensate them well and fairly compared to their less driven counterparts. Listen to their needs; trust them, give them the resources needed to function at the level of perfection. Stop trying to take on too many responsibilities and focus on improvement in one area at a time.

    Pros

    I work at Princeton House Behavioral Health as a Mental Health Associate. decent work environment. decent pay. good coworkers. plenty of opportunity to work overtime. evening and overnight bosses are very nice.

    Cons

    no opportunity for advancement. Nurses think they can boss you around. some people seem to get away with more than others. no performance based raises. Management makes it impossible to used paid time off.

    Advice to Management

    Be more approachable. Encourage nurses to be less bossy. hire more per diem workers so taking time off is not as impossible.

    Pros

    The salary is decent, flexible starting time

    Cons

    micromanagement, they expect you to put time in at home, but not get paid for it. Schedule really isn't that flexible, turnover has been high in the last year. They say they want to hear your ideas, but they really don't. Can never get consecutive days off near the holidays to go out of state to be with family. Some management can be outright mean.

    Advice to Management

    Take a closer look at those who don't do their work and stop generalizing across the board

  7. Excellent healthcare provided and overall good organization at which to work.

    Pros

    Superiors and peers were intelligent, energetic, and willing to work as a team. I learned a great deal during my time working there. Benefits were very decent.

    Cons

    Due to challenges of the healthcare industry as a whole, coupled with debt burden of new hospital construction, compensation was fair, but merit increases non-existent for several years and likely to continue. Additionally, there is very little flexibility with time management, i.e., no overtime permitted without prior management approval which was rarely, if ever, granted.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the lines of communication as open as possible when lay off are inevitable to keep the rumor mill at bay and morale up.

    Pros

    Ok if you are trying to gain experience.

    Cons

    Stressful office culture, alot of gossiping and he say she say. High turnover rate i was employed as a permanent employee for 2 months and in that time 4 people were fired and 6 people quit. Management never wants to help they just act like they are there for you. A lot of work for little pay.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employers and realize that if you expect for the amount of work that needs to be done to be done in a timely fashion you need to hire more people.

  11. Worked there for 10+ years

    Pros

    Magnet facility. Supportive of employees seeking to improve their education status. Staff very friendly, clean and safe environment for staff and patients.

    Cons

    Healthcare is under the gun to be fiscally sound in a very difficult environment with less people doing more work and PHCS is no different.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. They have great ideas! There is a way to balance budgets compassionately. Remember you get more with honey than vinegar.
