    Small office size,

    Help desk should be able to atleast work from home few days a month or atleast have the option available.

    Pros

    Coworkers/peers all were very congenial and friendly. No one had a problem with stopping to help you when you needed it. The management had different ongoing
    small perks organized that really made it easier daily - Someone came everyday with excellent homemade salads and sandwiches to buy for lunch, every Friday afternoon there was free ice cream bars, there were holidays and celebrations with lunches, sometimes catered, others where everyone contributed, and coffee/tea was always available in the lunchroom. Most of the higher level management on site was very approachable for advice.

    Cons

    Everywhere there was an overload of work to be done for three reasons: 1) Short staffed to handle the workload; 2) Not enough of proper training - you were pretty much just thrown into the fire; 3) Management and departments were disorganized and standard processes and SOP's didn't exist. You could be told one thing by one person and then be warned about doing it that way by another. There was a lack of professionalism among a few of the managers/directors in the accounting groups. They clearly played favorites and not everyone had the same expectations or privileges. There was no sense of privacy. I many times heard a peer being admonished and berated while sitting at their cubicle so everyone in the room could hear. Very stressful.

    Advice to Management

    Please pay attention to middle management and what type of people management skills they have & use. Walk around and be visible once in a while. A few could definitely use a basic 'how to manage people' classes.

    Pros

    Always OT
    relationship formed with individuals served

    Cons

    EVERYTHING besides what was previously mentioned in 'PROS". Lack of appreciation, low pay, retaliation, immaturity. This place is like a damn high school and very little opportunity to grow. Management like to abuse their power and if they do not get their way, they retaliate in subtle ways. You end up feeling like a punching bag at this place and there is nothing to motivate you. This place is horrible and needs a complete renovation. Management and policies need revision.

    Advice to Management

    There is a high turn over rate for a reason and it has little to do with the population which says a lot. Showing simple appreciation goes a long way. Let staff know that they matter, through actions and that they are not just bodies. Provide incentives, stop trying to manage via fear. Work on being leaders.

    I worked at Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The chance to work with a variety of people and clients.

    Cons

    Devereux continues to put themselves out there as such a caring foundation for their clients...it’s a cut throat intimidating, unsafe environment..very high turnover rate because they will overwork you, put you in unsafe situations no matter how much training they give you, when something goes wrong it’s your fault no matter what happened....there isn’t enough staff to take care of their clients properly and the nursing department who are supposed to be supportive of you and help take care of the clients treat the site nurses like garbage...stay away and protect your license and your back....
    ..run, don’t walk away!

    Advice to Management

    Look at why you lose good people.
