    I have been working at Behavioral Healthcare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This is a company that puts an emphasis on career growth and implementing new ideas. I have never worked for a company that walks the walk like BHI. They promote self-care, customer service and operational efficiency. One of the things I like best about BHI is they reinvest in their employees through trainings (you will grow here). They have managed to create a culture of support second to none. The CEO met with me one on one just to get to know me. Every level of management has a open door policy. The focus is on the team working together to achieve a common goal of success for our members. I heard a statistic one time that 80% of the American workers are unhappy with their job. I am happy to be counted in the 20% that have a passion for what they do. Joining the BHI team is one of the best decisions I have ever made.

    Cons

    The company is growing so fast that sometimes you find yourself in uncharted territories. You have to be willing to forge new and different ways of doing things. This means stepping outside of your comfort zone at times. Having been micro-managed in the past, this took some adjustment on my part.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Continue to grow the company and provide the amazing opportunities that will make the company greater than it already is. My biggest advice is to keep the company culture as the company grows. As healthcare changes adapt and adjust in a way that keeps people wanting to go above and beyond in a way that contributes to the overall success at BHI.

    I worked at Behavioral Healthcare (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent benefits package, shared agency mission, dedicated and qualified team members.

    Cons

    Depending on the department and the manager within the department, my experience was wanting upper management to provide stronger advocacy for employees' autonomy and provide support towards more trusting relationships between direct-management and staff. Also, being an hourly employee meant very strict time requirements with your weekly schedule; with an expectation of clocking in at exact times and not being over or under 40 hours per week. I didn't foresee any opportunities for growth within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Avoid micromanaging and allow more flexibility and trust with staff.

    I have been working at Behavioral Healthcare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Before taking my position at BHI, I was an entrepreneur for 9 years. I was nervous about working in a large company after all of the freedom I had owning my own business. I took a chance on BHI not only because of their attitude toward changing mental health for the better and eliminating stigma, but because of the forward thinking insight into the industry. .
    I have been with BHI for almost a year now and can say without hesitation that it was one of my best career moves. BHI encourages growth as a professional as well as an individual. They succeed in this by their thoughtful decisions on hiring management and employees.
    My direct supervisors have given me the opportunity and freedom to foster creativity and take positive risks in my position. BHI has always made me feel like an important and valued member of the team.
    If you are looking for an opportunity to be part of something that is doing innovative work in mental health, work in a supportive environment where employees strengths are celebrated, and where our weaknesses are built on and strengthened then I would highly recommend considering BHI.

    Cons

    As a non-profit, BHI is not as competitive in pay as a for-profit may be, however the benefits are superb and the working environment and colleagues make it worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring passionate people!
