    Pros

    You will gain a lot of clinical experience. As well, the compensation is competitive. Fellow clinicians are an additional positive of the job.

    Cons

    Management does not value it’s clinical staff. For any type of mobility in the organization you must play the political game. Some of the psychiatrists are demeaning towards social workers and counselors.

    Advice to Management

    Have medical directors that have people skills and that value clinicians that work with them.

    Pros

    Those don't exist at this place

    Cons

    If you take a job in the admissions department be prepared to be overworked and treated like garbage. The department is frequently understaffed and employees are overworked and asked to take on a ridiculous amount of work. This is especially true on weekends where there is only one person at the Brown Deer campus yet that one person is expected to handle not only the high number of calls that transferred there, but we are also expected to help out other campuses even though they have more weekend staff. To make matters worse, the managers will send out emails talking about how, 'you guys are so amazing and we appreciate everything you do!' But then breath down our necks about not getting enough done while they sit comfortably at home and only caring about filling the beds so they can get more money. It is obvious management only cares about making money (despite being a not for profit organization) and couldn't care less about the well being of their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Try pretending that you actually care about your employees and make an effort to give adequate staffing. There is a reason that there is such a high turnover rate in admissions.

    Pros

    It's a great time to work at Rogers. We're expanding and treating more patients in all areas of the country.
    Great benefits-health insurance is good, 401k, gain share, annual raises, tuition reimbursement, loan forgiveness, etc..

    Cons

    With rapid growth comes restructuring and stress.

    I worked at Rogers Behavioral Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The floor staff (nurses, PCA, MHP) were great to work with. The patients genuinely appreciated staff that care.

    Cons

    Management and administration consistently bully and force staff out of jobs on hear say and allow certain staff to get away with anything. The political agenda far outweighs patient treatment. Management has used threatening tones and put employees in a position to be punished when employees speak on their concerns. Family complaints are not taken seriously and patient care practices are not consistently followed. Staff that engage in power struggles or put patients in danger are not held responsible and even at times are not documented properly. HIPPA is constantly being broken between staff, sometimes infront of other staff, visitors, and other patients. Staff that are not certified to do specific tasks are allowed to perform said tasks (ex- eliminating the CNA requirement for PCAs but being forced to perform cares on children and the geriatric population). There is a lack of training overall, many staff have no prior experience working in mental health...let alone inpatient. When state comes everyone is scrambling to make sure all policies are adhered to, however after state has done its review and are no longer in the hospital there is a lack of following policy and state law requirements. Working for this company is a slippery slope to go down and almost impossible to navigate unless one has a lack of morals and values when working with a vulnerable population and knows how to navigate politics of a company only concerned about their bottom line and not concerned about basic safety for their patients and staff. Advice to future staff...document document, a paper trail will protect you more than your peers or managers.

    Advice to Management

    Remember this organization is a non-profit stemming from the idea that "life is worth living". Treat your employees that have direct patient contact with respect and kindness. Do right by the mental health population and understand working in mental health can be very difficult for employees, show empathy here and there and form relationships with employees so they do not feel they are disposable. Have administration spend more time on the units to have a better understanding of where strengths and areas to improved are.

    "Some employees bullied out of a job"

    Pros

    Good work and clientele experience

    Cons

    People can be bullied, pushed around or excluded until they quit. Those that have been there for a while get away with exaggerating circumstances to management, then employees getting accusations and judgments thrown at them. It's hard to watch happen. Staff feel the need to make excuses to quit in order to leave on decent terms with the company instead of being able to tell what is happening.

    Advice to Management

    Find out and know the truth before assuming anything about anyone. Some of the therapists are competitive and will undermine other employees positions any way possible. Many employees keep to themselves as much as possible because of this kind of behavior. Not very well behaved adults in a behavioral institute who are supposed to be professionals.
