    Look elsewhere!
    The turnover is massive.

    I worked at The Meadows Psychiatric Center full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good salary and easy to get employed. The hospital and outpatient facilities are attractive.
    The benefits such as medical insurance are good.

    Cons

    You will do the work of two and three people. There is little respect for employees.
    You will be moved around as management sees fit. There needs to be changes in middle management who show little respect for those under them. You will always fear losing your job. After your income reaches a certain level, you will be in treated poorly, so that you will quit. I would never recommend anyone working there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees better! Stop the turnovers. You may make money by removing longer-term employees but you will ultimately pay the price with a lower percentage of referrals. Those who once worked for you will never make referrals!

    I worked at The Meadows Psychiatric Center

    Pros

    Awesome one on one psych experience

    Cons

    Wow, where do I start. You will never get time off, onless you are dieing and even then you better provide a death certificate. You never know when you will get to go home, they mandate all the time. It is really unsafe with its restraint policies. If census gets too low, you get sent home(doesn't happen when you want it too) The ratio of patients to staff can be quite unsafe.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find someone who will stay and straighten this mess out! You need incetives for people because your history prevails, everyone knows why you wanted ads are a full page daily!
