    Friendly co-workers and director. BHTs actually do care about the patients and do their best with what they have to work with.

    Pros

    If you have a personal issue, you're likely to sway management towards your circumstance.

    Cons

    Long hours at times on your feet. breaks aren't typically taken, some punch for lunch and still work thru it. It's because the workload is intense. There's confusion and there's lack of structure and organization.

    Advice to Management

    It's nearly impossible at this point-- bigger budget? Hire more staff, and thoroughly train them

    Pros

    Flexible schedules, great therapists to work with.

    Cons

    Management doesn't care of if we are working 10 hrs or 39 hrs per week, they will continue to use PRN's or hire more people even went they aren't needed. NEVER get a salary increase, you will need to find a new job to get a raise.

    Advice to Management

    work with your employees to determine beneficial ways of dealing with changes in the census. Hiring more people when your therapists are only getting 25/wk creates animosity and frustration.
