    I have been working at Legacy Health part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Full benefits even if employed part-time. Meet lots of great co-workers. Job gives good experience in acute mental health care.

    Cons

    Over qualified employees are not being compensated based on experience and education. Pay is not high enough. Lack of communication from management/management seems very distant and uninvolved in actual management of staff. High-stress and constantly under-staffed.
