    I have been working at Brattleboro Retreat full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Small, independent hospital with long history in community.
    Well known and well regarded in the state.
    Several innovative programs like LGBT and young adult.
    A somewhat active union for RNs and MHWs.
    Decent paid time off.

    Cons

    Administration not always in tune with employee's needs or recommendations.
    Wide variability of skill and professionalism of staff.
    Far more mandated shifts than acceptable.

    Advice to Management

    Recruit from a wider region to attract the best employees.
    Listen to and implement suggestions from the unit floors. They know the patients best.
