I worked at Brattleboro Retreat full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Mission is important, stretches one's professional skills due to diversity of patients, most other employees are dedicated professionals and supportive colleagues, CME opportunities onsite

Cons

Leadership not always responsive to concerns of frontline staff, compensation needs adjustment, benefits sacrificed when financial hardship of institution arises, work area in my department was substandard and shamefully shabby

Advice to Management

Listen and respond to front line staff's concern about safety issues, increase employer contribution to retirement plan, do market comparison of salaries, clean up HR department and hire staff there whose experience matches the size the Retreat's employee number has become
