    I have been working at East Mississippi State Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's highly accessible being thought it is not to hard to get hired with them. You get a pretty flexible schedule being as though you work 7 days within two weeks. Have a retirement savings that you put money into and can be retrieved when you resign or retire. If you do your 25 years with them they will match what it is you have saved up.

    Cons

    Not much opportunity for advancement. Also very limited on modified scheduling. At one point in time they gave unlimited overtime now they don''t give it as often.

    Advice to Management

    Would be nice if the unlimited overtime returned. More reliability. Also maybe more programs for the patients or activities for those who work the late shift.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at East Mississippi State Hospital (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    They promote an opportunity to advance oneself with education. The work is not hard as long as you do not let them know you are capable of more than what you were just hired to do

    Cons

    Ability to receive promotions once hired are limited to those who forged personal relationships with the leadership. It's a great first time job for graduates but not so much for seasoned individuals

    Advice to Management

    Recognize qualified individuals and their unique talents prior to them deciding to move on

    I worked at East Mississippi State Hospital full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There is always help wanted. DCW's and CNA's are the backbone and the foundation of the hospital.

    Cons

    1 year probation. The pay is poor. The administartion and treatment team undermind what the DCW's are doing for the patients. Some of the nurses are very condescending towards the DCW's and are more worried about there reputation than doing what is in the best interest of the patients.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to the state about reducing the probation to 90 days for employees age 24 and older. The pay needs to be improved for DCW's and CNA's. Provide professional growth, mentorship for DCW's and CNA's. Make the pay competitive with that of agencies. Have a CNA1 and a CNA2 positions.
