    I worked at Coalinga State Hospital (Less than a year)


    Pay and benefits were excellent.


    My type of work is very detailed because it entails codes, procedures, ICD-9's, coding etc. This position in a General hospital would entail much training and cooperation with management. But at this mental institution it was much more clerical and and the patient load were actual inmates from a state prison and you have to be a certain type of individual in order to cope with this kind of employment and environment. Also my commute was over 100 miles every day to get to my job.

    Advice to Management

    Management is the boss, and so I feel that nothing I would say or suggest they would find appropriate for the institution. Government employment is so very structured; even if you suggest changes, management would probably not take your advice or suggestion
