    I worked at The Menninger Clinic full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great location, good clinical services provided, costly but worth the ROI, nice campus and amenities for the patients. Clinical staff are respected and taken care of.

    Cons

    Managers who don't know how to truly lead or manage their team nor possess the knowledge to truly perform their jobs, political within the leadership (executive/managers), polarizing, benefits/compensation practices

    Advice to Management

    Training for managers

    I worked at The Menninger Clinic full-time

    Pros

    A couple of really good caring people work here.

    Cons

    Micromanagement of all employees. Too much Staff drama esp. back biting and undermining to really care about the patients. Favoritism is blatant as well as the divisions between the treatment team. I worked there over two years but the MD and Therapists never even addressed me by name nor asked my name.

    Advice to Management

    Fair and equal treatment of ALL employees. Too few administrators have too much power.


  6. The people who work at Menninger make it a great place.

    I worked at The Menninger Clinic full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    New campus, close to home, and basically can do the work you were hired to do.

    Cons

    Highly political, a lot of infighting between the executive team. All executive team members look out for their own area of responsibility and are quick to blame other areas for their faults.

    Advice to Management

    Executive team needs to get on the same page and speak with one voice. You think the employee base cannot see the division but they can and that is why there is so many issues between the employee base.


  8. My experience as a whole in the company is OK and I learned a lot.

    Pros

    The Company is a stable employer and you can achieve growth on other areas.

    Cons

    The only challenges here is the equal opportunity for the employee.

    Advice to Management

    For the management to look into the right market pay scale of employee.

    Pros

    Nice environment, team work, and enjoyable atmosphere. I really like my boss and his approach. I like my coworkers. I enjoy working with the patients most of all, because that is what it's all about!

    Cons

    It's cold sometimes (literally in my office).

    Advice to Management

    keep up good work, warm up the building I work in. :)

    Pros

    Small company. Casual Fridays. Motivates you to do whatever you need to get another job.

    Cons

    Hard to get a day off. No advancement unless you are a nurse. No career ladder. Not paid for educational accomplishments or for longevity. NO weekend pay but you are required to work 2 weekends a month. HUGE turnover.

    Advice to Management

    The culture and atmosphere are lacking employee empowerment. Treatment issues of patients are sometimes scraped by new management in lieu of "customer service". Sometimes it feels like the patients are just a census number and revenue.


  11. Good place to begin a career in mental healthcare

    Cons

    Little room for advancement, poor pay increases.

    Take better advantage of the education and abilities of direct care staff through reasonable pay increases and promotion.
