    Pros

    Pine Rest has good benefits. The Supervisor was flexible and patient and there was a great group of Co-Workers.

    Cons

    Little acknowledgement from management. Before leaving P.R, you need to use your vacation time or you just lose it. But if you use the time, you're treated badly because you weren't working during that time. It can make you regret having worked there.

    Advice to Management

    Management should realize that all staff members are important, not just managment. They should make sure staff have the equipment needed to do the jobs.

    I worked at Pine Rest Christian Mental Health Services (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great organization to learn about the mental health care system and pick up extra money, especially working in-patient.

    Cons

    Too much top down management and unrealistic expectations for frontline staff.

    Advice to Management

    Try a business model that does not emphasis a top down management structure that is disorganized and lacks the structure of a for profit organization. Provide better training and professional enhancement for staff. Go outside of management circles to get feedback about issues and challenges facing the organization. Bureaucracies are great under certain circumstances but times are changing so should the business model.
