    I worked at Behavioral Healthcare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits package. Investment in quality employee trainings. Occasional non-monetary incentives. Steady schedule. Immeasurable experience and gained skills to further yourself in a human services field.

    Cons

    BHI presents themselves as a trauma-informed, wholesome, and positive company. That's great in theory, but not in practice. There is a massive divide between drop-in center staff and headquarters staff. HQ enjoys perks and a much more lax environment that is often shared through company email threads. Naps, coloring and a loose dress code are all encouraged at HQ. If you work at one of the drop-in centers, you're lucky if you don't have to work through your lunch break. Management has high expectations they often make exceptions to based on personal mood that day. And if you question any of those decisions, you will be yelled at and made to feel insignificant. If you make a mistake or ask too many questions, it will be consistently brought up and rehashed long after the fact. Your performance evaluation is often based on the personal feelings of the supervisor. That supervisor will also make note of something negative in said evaluation that has never been addressed prior to meeting. You will be given no opportunity to correct a mistake or improve inadequate performance or behavior. The environment is one of strict rules and inconsistent reinforcement. What may be fine for one employee will get another dragged into a meeting with management. You must be perfectly exact in your time punches because any deviation is frowned upon. You must be perfect even when management doesn't hold themselves to the same standard. You may not engage in non-work related conversations with other coworkers, but management can engage you in a personal conversation. When covering a position for breaks or PTO, don't expect management to actually perform any duties. They will simply be the body that fills the void until your return.

    Don't go near the kitchen. Not only will you wind up lacking certain ingredients, some will be expired too. You will be instructed to use products as long as they still smell okay. You will be expected to clean up after other staff members and supervisors who may come through the kitchen and after the classes taught by the supervisor. You are expected to be able to load, unload and stock hundreds of pounds of food a week, by yourself and in under 2 hours.

    If you aren't reserved, perpetually politically correct, and lacking critical thinking skills, this isn't the job for you. You may not have good days and bad days, you may not fall ill unexpectedly and you may not suffer from the same mental illnesses you've been hired to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Be more accepting of those who are different than you. Don't base job performance feedback on personal feelings of dislike. Listen to the feedback an employee may be trying to give you without cutting them off, becoming defensive and saying demeaning things to a person you claim to care for and support. Be honest and direct. When you communicate solely through passive aggressive actions and emails, you can't expect that it won't be reciprocated. If you claim to be focused on social work, try working on your social skills.
