    I worked at Princeton HealthCare full-time for less than a year

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Princeton House Behavioral Healthcare has a great team. However, their management is vindictive and evil.

    I worked at Princeton HealthCare full-time

    Pros

    The admissions team was great to work with- everyone is positive and willing to lend a hand.

    Cons

    The management is disorganized and sends their staff mixed messages. They also tended to play favorites, and held mistakes made months ago fresh in their minds, using it as ammunition to write awful progress reports. Also, HR is a joke and is not actually there to protect employees- they are very political with their choices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to manage. Just because you hold an LCSW does not make you qualified to manage an entire department.

    I have been working at Princeton HealthCare

    Pros

    PHCS offers the opportunity to do meaningful, rewarding work. There is a nice variety of different settings to work in and different populations that you can engage with. A significant percentage of your fellow employees are compassionate, dedicated professionals.

    Cons

    Senior management and the human resources department want you to believe that they will help you to succeed and try to resolve issues in a fair and objective manner. Unfortunately, you can't really count on that. Instead, the culture is poisoned by personality issues and petty grudges. In my opinion there is a systematic abuse of power. If you work there and run into problems, DO NOT trust the stated corporate compliance policies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Staff are afraid of upper management. While I worked there employees actually were asked to rate their supervisors "anonymously". However, in completing the survey employees are identified by their job title and which program they worked in. No one was willing to report what they really thought, for fear their managers would be able to figure out who said what.. It is a very oppressive and discouraging environment.
