    Pros

    Staff are dedicated & passionate about what they do. Clients truly are the #1 focus. Everyone working at my facility truly does put the client's treatment & safety above & beyond everything else.

    Cons

    Workloads can be intense. Some of the staff can be super "politically correct" which can put up walls or silos. Some staff focused more on their internal friendships instead of the job at hand.

    Advice to Management

    Hire those passionate but also don't be afraid to clean out the negative, cancerous employees who haven't figured out how good they actually have it.

    Pros

    Because the patient population is so diverse, there is a lot of opportunity to gain experience with different groups of people. You can work with children, dual diagnosis and severe psychological disorders all in one place. The experience fosters professional growth.

    Cons

    At times you will find yourself feeling you work for insurance companies instead of for the clients. As a result, the demands placed on staff are, at times, tedious and excessive.

    Advice to Management

    Increase recognition and incentives for the hard work done by staff.

    Pros

    Great benefits, great clinical staff

    Cons

    Administration knows nothing about the needs of clinical employees. They're numbers-oriented and do not show any concern about the safety of the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Start caring about your employees and patients' well-being. Take time to understand what happens on the units.
