    I worked at Options Behavioral Health System full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    CEO and management working hard to improve what was previously a struggling facility prior to Acadia taking it over. Staff nurses care and work well together.

    Cons

    Need of professional improvement of tech staff although some are wonderful.

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving forward and growing the TEAM.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Options Behavioral Health System full-time

    Pros

    Doing important work and they appear to care about employees. People are nice. Hours are convenient and flexible. Enjoyable and meaningful.

    Cons

    Very poor training at the beginning of the job which put employees and residents at risk. Little effective therapeutic intervention present and management appears to only care about the money.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management appears to be a high turnover position and each new one seems less qualified than the last. The CEOs appear to have little management skills and don't seem to really care about anything other than the bottom line

    I worked at Options Behavioral Health System full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are no "pros" in working at Options

    Cons

    Revolving door management, minimum of 10 nurses (out of about 20) left in less then a 2 month time span as a result of poor management, extremely short staffed (afraid for my RN license), was promised a day shift position, but management refused to move me off of night shift. Patients not being seen by physicians for their entire hospital stay.

    Advice to Management

    Close the hospital!

    Pros

    Working there can get really stress at times because the patients make it hard for us staff members to do our jobs without trying to fight us

    I worked at Options Behavioral Health System full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working with the children is about the only positive thing I can say about this company. Pay is pretty good for nurses.

    Cons

    Not enough nurses, direct care, or mental health techs especially on 3rd shift which violates some state rules on specific units and could put licensed professionals at risk. They offer nice benefits but forget it if you think your gonna be able to use your vacation time it's just not enough staff to cover you being off.

    Advice to Management

    Take some of the profits that you earn and invest in recruiting more employees. Also show some appreciation to the current employees you have instead of burning them out with mandatory double shifts because of staffing issues maybe this will assist with your turn over rate.

    Pros

    Getting the opportunity to meet and assist patients and the immense coworker support that makes the day to day acheivable.

    Cons

    Job security-never knowing if you will have a job the next day. The system is not set in stone yet. One day things are consistent, the next day not so much. Lack of communication within departments, empty promises from higher ups. Staff retention-no one stays in their position long, some take the steps in either quitting or finding other places of employment. Lack of support or acknowledgement of the individuals that have put in 10plus years. Management support- lack there of. No acknowledgement or appreciation of the hard work put in by employees day in day out.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate, acknowledge, and commend the hard work the employees put in, because currently morale is at an all time low- every department, everyone is feeling strained, unappreciated, and overworked with no boost or support from you. Without these: appreciation, acknowledgement, and support, its a sure fire way to loose your best people that have been willing to help build and grow with no hesitation.
