    I have been working at BryLin Behavioral Health System full-time

    Pros

    Overtime if you want it. Time and a half for overtime. Health insurance that includes vision and dental. A cafeteria for staff, if you want it. Pretty well run. A very caring staff that back each other up. Staff actually care about the patients, I seen staff who go out of their way to help a patient and show such kindness.

    Cons

    There are always cons. Parking can be a problem. But for the most part, not too may cons. Staff can be clicky but any place that employs a large amount of staff will be the same way. The only problem is pay checks . I am hoping to work here a long time and I worry about Brylin staying afloat.

    I worked at BryLin Behavioral Health System full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It saddens me to say there are none, save for a few exceptionally bright, motivated and caring staff members.

    Cons

    If you value your personal well-being, do no work here. From poor management, a vast majority of incompetent and lazy staff who are focused more on their personal drama than work, being chronically understaffed, unsafe working conditions, outdated equipment and methods, HR not addressing big issues appropriately, predatory male staff, unqualified supervisors, hostile and threatening coworkers, missing medications and bounced checks, I have never seen such a corrupt mess. Upper management is concerned primarily with their monetary gain at the expense of employee well-being and patients' recovery. They will lock employees in the building, refusing to let them exit after their shift despite failing to mandate. I have seen too many wonderful, happy people have their souls crushed by working in this toxic environment.
