    I have been working at Adventist Midwest Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    As a special ed teacher at GlenOaks, you work with kind, compassionate and experienced professionals as a member of a team that is looking out for what is best for each student and how to best support each other as staff members. The level of insight into the therapeutic educational process continues to impress me along with the commitment for ongoing education and improvement. Coworkers are more than coworkers, just as the students are more than simply students. For any special ed teachers wondering if it is a good idea to work with students with emotional disabilities (given the data on high burnout for ED teachers), I would recommend taking a second look at GlenOaks. As a therapeutic school, GlenOaks administrators and staff know first-hand the daily challenges you face as a teacher and provide the help, advice and support you need to work successfully in an ED program. Everyone at the school is focused on the same needs and issues so you are not in the position of trying to explain what you or your students need to an administrator or other teachers who cannot really understand because their daily work lives are so different.

    Cons

    For some teachers, it might be frustrating to realize that their academic subjects are secondary to the emotional and behavioral progress the students need to make.

    I have been working at Adventist Midwest Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    pay is decent. hospital staff is very friendly. hospital is in a nice area.

    Cons

    High turnover at this hospital. not enough staff to safely provide for pt's. "Christian Values" are not implemented in this hospital. Management do not respect or trust their staff. some nurses take every small problem to management rather than standing behind what they say and tell that person. This creates a "kindergarten" atmosphere. Benefits are not what they should be. budget cuts have caused a lot of issues all over the hospital and thats just the beginning of the cuts they are making.

    Advice to Management

    support your staff. listen to your staff. trust your staff.

    Pros

    You will gain amazing experience working with mental health concerns. In no other job would you encounter such diversity in diagnosis.

    Cons

    Abusive administration that shames employees to cover up their bad practices. If you take a day off be prepared to get interrogated by administration. If you show up for work expect to do the job of at least 3 people because they have a very ineffective substitute system. Emotionally exhausting due to high student needs and manipulation from administration.

    Advice to Management

    Stop manipulating staff! When students assault staff (more often than you'd think), don't ignore it or try to blame the employee.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to yuor employees
