      A big step up from agency work! Great company but management and culture varies by program

      Pros

      Excellent pay, well-defined role as a group therapist, supports individuality and creativity in what you bring to the table, skilled, compassionate and professional coworkers

      Cons

      Big corporation, inconsistent culture/management between programs, very medical model (therapists often fall at the bottom of the totem pole, under social workers) I have worked on several of the area psychiatric units and have experienced variability unit-by-unit in terms of organization/flow/communication, advocacy/support /inclusion for therapy teams, and general culture. This is important to my work well-being so I have developed preferences for certain units. If My advice to any job seeker is to ask about this in the interviews, connect with an existing employee for an insider's perspective, and trust your instincts around "vibe."

      could be better

      Pros

      Majority of staff treat each other well. Workers do their best to keep a positive & supportive atmosphere. There's a nurse union. Most departments are managed well by people who try their best & care about workers as people. Management comes to the floor to help with patient care.

      Cons

      Upper administration is completely disconnected with reality at the bedside. They took all of our EIB (extended illness bank) away during this COVID pandemic & now they want to take away our ability to cash out our PTO. Since PSJH has taken over the Catholic hospital system it's become only about profit & taking from the workers while hiding behind providing services to community & saying they care for patients and using fluff words to make them seem like they aren't corrupt.

      Very nice culture

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The people I work with make this job enjoyable, even though its a tough job. Very nice culture (on the Medical floor anyway). Lately we have been staffed well and management tries to stay on matrix, on our floor that is 4 to 5 patients per nurse. NACs range from 2-3 for the floor, sometimes its one and that is difficult

      Cons

      The worst part is when staffing is short which is not that often, however, it can happen. They do need more NAC support on this floor most of the time. Buddy system for brakes is unsafe.

      Decent Job, Terrible Career

      Apr 2, 2021 - Accounts Receivable Specialist in Portland, OR
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      1.) Can have flexible schedules, depending on DEPT. 2.) Generous PTO allotment. 3.) Few job responsibilities means low stress. 4.) Most roles are telecommuter since the pandemic.

      Cons

      1.) Management can hinder your career growth depending on how much they like you. 2.) Pays lip service to diversity but people of color rarely move into leadership roles and have higher turn over. 3.) Salary is not competitive and pay raises are highly subjective. 4.) Roles are very compartmentalized and offer very little room to grow outside the specific role you are assigned. 5.) Have seen coworkers bring up concerns to HR only to be swiftly retaliated against by leadership and even fired. 6.) Extremely high turnover, resulting in 4 different managers and 3 leads over the course of 3 years.
