    I have been working at Behavioral Health Network full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    A company that actually "walks" its talk. When there are financial surpluses, the extra $$ go to the employees. Relaxed atmosphere. Long tenured senior mgmt - stability at the top rungs. Very financially stable.

    Cons

    As with any company, there are always politics.

    I worked at Behavioral Health Network full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    None at all besides it being located in an urban community in which they complain about.

    Cons

    All that you can think of in a bad non profit that doesn't look out for the interest of it's employees or clients they serve.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up stop running the place like your a bunch of high school mean girls and guys

    Pros

    BHN is fantastic at identifying the needs of the community and partnering to create opportunities to serve! The leadership has a strong commitment to social justice and considers staff the most important asset of the organization.

    Cons

    With such a large organization with multiple sites, sometimes hard to stay connected to coworkers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep engaging your employees and clients in the conversation- the voices of the people that work for BHN and those that we serve are critical to decision-making.

    I have been working at Behavioral Health Network full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    This large and growing agency really seems to focus on supporting staff and providing high quality services. Lots of very innovative programs. Strong management. Agency minimum wage above state minimum (currently $12.50). Most supervisors and managers have been promoted from within.

    Cons

    Behavioral health is underfunded, but that is not BHN's doing.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to advocate for better funding for mental health and substance use treatment programs!

    Cons

    -An inappropriate level of productivity requirements. Mostly clinicians must have over 50 clients to maintain requirements -Low pay -A lot of turn over and burn out -Company has no regard for emotional health or wellbeing of anyone working there. It is all about the insurance company money and requirements in management. -Some clinicians are immature, insecure, and gossip

    I have been working at Behavioral Health Network full-time

    Pros

    Great flexibility in scheduling, an excellent introduction into the mental health/social work field. I learned so much in my first year in this position. My supervisor was really supportive and allowed for much growth in the company.

    Cons

    Higher ups often disorganized and sometimes not straightforward with what is coming for change in the company. The program was often disorganized and lacked consistency. Pay isn't fantastic but better than most places in this area. Productivity module pretty much sucks and often times inconsistency from families makes it impossible to keep up with it.
