    I worked at Carrier Clinic full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most coworkers have a strong moral compass and care about the patients, and most are hardworking enough to keep things flowing smoothly. While I do think there is lots of room for improvement, I'd be able to rest peacefully if someone I cared about was admitted here. Just because of the people who work here, I felt compelled to review this place and give it 4.5 stars.

    If you like this kind of work, you will have an opportunity to make impacts on people's lives.

    Tuition reimbursement and opportunity for mobility between departments and units.

    Lots of opportunity for PTO, extra shifts, etc. All the usual benefits of unionized hospitals.

    Cons

    No major complains but-

    I wish greater precautions were taken with certain patients that the hospital is ill-equipped to handle, or perhaps they were just not admitted at all. It's the mental health techs and nurses that put themselves at risk.

    Cell phone policy is archaic, especially for nightshift; phones help employees stay awake.

    Advice to Management

    I can't speak for non-clinical staff, but whatever process is in place to hire clinical staff is working out great, and I hope you continue to hire great people.

    Pros

    The organization encourages your career and personal growth. Staff sincerely cares about one another.

    Cons

    It takes a lot out of you mentally and physically to work with the client population.

    Advice to Management

    Put yourself in the shoes of each employee under your supervision. Make sure they have the support they need and are not over burdened.

    Pros

    Supportive environment for staff members. Tuition reimbursement for Healthcare related degrees is really great, and they are understanding about working around unpredictable class schedules. The pay is higher here than most psychiatric hospitals.

    Cons

    Really difficult field to be in. Mental health doesn't pay very well, especially on the entry level and the level of burnout is high.

    I have been working at Carrier Clinic full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    A good work environment with tuition reimbursement.Lots of overtime even if you are hired as a per diem staff or part time employee

    Cons

    The work can be stressful because you are dealing with people with mental health.

    Advice to Management

    Management may want to increase pay rates for MHTs to avoid the high turn over rates among this group of employees.

    I worked at Carrier Clinic full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most people were absolutely amazing. Competent and willing to teach. Good place to get experience. Undergoing changes currently.

    Cons

    The hospital constant experiences mild-severe low staffing issues. First year turnover rate among nursing/Mental Health Technician staff. Undergoing changes currently.

    Advice to Management

    Work on first year turnover from perspective of employees and save yourself thousands on hiring new staff every month. That money could be used towards countless current projects.
