    I have been working at Rosecrance full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working for an organization with the resources and talent to address substance abuse, behavioral health and co-occurring disorders is a wonderful way to give back to the community. It is extremely busy and runs with as lean an organization as possible but there are tremendous rewards. Rosecrance facilities and properties are top-notch and the organization is growing both in its geographical areas of service and in client population. With this comes a slower rate of staff growth, but there is staff growth to meet the ever-growing demand. The work is challenging and varied, and opportunities for professional training and growth exist. The culture tries to keep overtime demands as low as possible, but there is overtime and it is managed. Benefits are good and HR works hard at keeping the employee contribution portion as low as possible.

    Cons

    Being a non-profit, salaries are lower than anyone would like. Some of these pay issues really need to be addressed because the attrition low pay causes hurts the organization and it mission.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that you have a highly credentialed and education staff. Don't be afraid to ask the people actually doing the work for process improvement contributions and ideas.

    Pros

    Great coworkers, great benefits, purpose, all make for a rare work environment you enjoy being in every day. The company likes to promote from within so there's room for advancement. They value their people and show it by consistently hosting company events and giving back to the employees.

    Cons

    Challenge of dealing with the client issues everyday makes it a tough job to do. The salary tends to be on the lower side but that's to be expected at a non-profit company

    Advice to Management

    Continue to nurture a great work environment and show value to your employees.

    I have been working at Rosecrance full-time

    Pros

    You have a job. Learn how to be more selective for a new employer.

    Cons

    Pay below market value, subpar benefits, management earns 3x more than front line workers, high case loads, high billable expectation

    Advice to Management

    Anyone making under 75k still considers money as a motivator.

    I worked at Rosecrance full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Many of the staff are dedicated to their jobs and share the vision of Rosecrance as a place to help others address problems. Over the years, Rosecrance is one of the few treatment organizations that has been able to survive and even grow despite major challenges.

    Cons

    Management is well insulated from the realities of everyday life and tends to blame first and ask questions later. The management team has been in place for many years and treats most employees as if they are disposable. This has negatively impacted the entire organization to the point where their services just aren't as good as they used to be.

    Advice to Management

    It's time to retire. Bring in some professionals who will run the place without burning through employees.

    Pros

    Has pretty good insurance. And there is much to me learned from patients.

    Cons

    Long hours and half the time no breaks (but you will always have to punch out or HR gets on you and will deduct the half hour pay anyway). Usually dangerously understaffed. High turn over (average employments for staff with direct contact with patients is about a year and a half). No communication from management, but when staff does not know of changes management is quick to blame staff for the error(changes in policies happen almost weekly). Disrespect and direct insults from management. Unit staff has no back up from management when it comes to patient behavioral issues, if the patient had insurance there will be NO repercussions no matter how well documented, unit staff has no authority to deal with inappropriate behaviors . Management/HR lies about raises (often promises 50 cent raise after 6 months and yearly.) Fact is at best you will only get a 33 cent raise yearly and thats if you are VERY well liked, most get much less. SOPs very much out of date. One was just "updated" this year saying that staff should wear gloves when changing diapers on the family unit, that unit has been gone for over 4 years. However management will be quick to ask you when you ask a question (that they usually don't know the answer to) "What does the SOP say?". The computer system is terrible and there is NO training on how to use it, it's all trial and error. Also the system goes down often with no other patient chart back ups for emergencies. Training in general is lacking, at best you get 2 or 3 days of training when about 2 weeks is required,

    Advice to Management

    Try working with your staff instead of against. And maybe work on the floor every now and then so you can remember what it's like to deal with the problems that come up working with patients.
