    I have been working at Helen Ross McNabb full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A great company that cares about its employees. The company offers an excellent benefit package. The other staff are great, and there is a very open door policy with management.

    Cons

    Community based care/grant funded which seems to translate to lower pay for nurses. There doesn’t seem to be much of an opportunity for advancement, for a nurse.

    I have been working at Helen Ross McNabb full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    McNabb's benefits are decent for a single payer, Administration makes an effort to hear staff concerns, and most needs are addressed in time. The company has experienced significant growth since I've been here and continues to grow. There's lots of opportunity for lateral movement. Lots of great people work here (it takes special people to work in this field, and many of them are just plain fun.)

    Cons

    The mental / emotional labor is significant. Self Care is very important. Salaries vary depending on positions, but there can be significant differences between similar positions (Ex Working direct care with children vs adults) that don't seem to be fair. Upward growth is limited unless you have a Masters Degree. Some of the administration appears disconnected with front line staff experiences. The company is less transparent than it used to be as far as new programs opening and new opportunities for existing staff.

    Advice to Management

    Openly post new opportunities / programs for all staff to see with regular updates on progress towards completion. Emotional labor should be carefully considered when salaries are created, and similar positions should be compensated more fairly. Salaries should most certainly be increased for direct care staff.
