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

    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.

    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.
