    I worked at Aurora Behavioral Health Care full-time

    Pros

    Superb mission in helping individuals with substance abuse and mental health issues e.g. Depression, Anxiety, Schizophrenia. Strong clearly communicated corporate policies.

    Cons

    Very "old school" in dealing with employees e.g no flex time, across the board, meager annual raises (2%), regardless of high performer or low performer, combative vs. collaborative culture, and skimpy annual raises, results in very high employee turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Adopt HR best practices from employers who are deemed "best places to work".

    I worked at Aurora Behavioral Health Care full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Aurora is at least a job and the pay isn't to bad. you will makes friends. Their intention to help is good and needed in santa rosa for behavioral health.

    Cons

    The management is not welcoming, demanding and not flexable. Mental health workers get not praise for their important job and the wages are fair but their is a large gap between the pay and only 2% raise each year. not worth all the hard work. under staffed constant and miscommunication all around.

    Advice to Management

    Change management or get people that are understanding, you guys have good intentions but have bad ways of showing it. give your mental health workers praise or recognition for all their hard work.

    I worked at Aurora Behavioral Health Care full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They offer a decent salary.

    Cons

    Dysfunctional from the top down. Poor patient care, new Dr.'s every three to four weeks if not sooner. Outright rudeness from management. The company is trying to sell itself and this is reflected in the attitude toward employees.

    Advice to Management

    Make up your mind, you either are a health care provider or you are not. Do what you have to and engage full-time psychiatric staff. Treat your employees with respect and make them feel empowered and valued.

    This aurora dont give the nurses or mental health workers no praiss for the hard work they do. Some workers are not trained right .there are alot of injuries on workers that could be prevented.

    Hire people that want to work for the patient and not the money get people that no how to work or have some experience in the field and stop playing favorites

    I have been working at Aurora Behavioral Health Care full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is adequate and differentials are high on weekends (to try and keep people working in a dismal environment )

    Cons

    Work is micromanaged to an extreme! You have to call in every shift to see if you are actually working that day! They won't allow supervisors to post the evening shift in the day ( morning ) because they don't trust the staff to honor it. So it's always a last minute thing. That way no one knows who may or may not have the day off! That way they can keep people "available, aka on-call" without having to pay them for it.

    Advice to Management

    None. You wouldn't know good advice if it bit you in the butt. I'd give them less than a star or none if I could.

    I worked at Aurora Behavioral Health Care full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you need inpatient experience and can't get a job somewhere else, you can start here to get your feet wet. High turnover means they're hiring regularly. Cheap meals. Met some nice people while working there. You'll obtain some good experience.

    Cons

    Unprofessional staff. People have no faith in HR and don't feel confident discussing issues that wouldn't be tolerated at other facilities. The company is hyper focused on employee productivity. The company appears to be greatly focused on bottom line. It is frequently expressed or implied that employees are disposable. Micromanagement appears to be the norm. I've literally heard nursing staff refer to the place as "a piece of s***" while at nurses station in ear shot of patients. People don't like their jobs. Management rules with an iron fist. Sink or swim, limited job training.

    Advice to Management

    A more robust, autonomous HR.
