    Pros

    Variety of positions, possibly a good stepping stone depending on your line of work

    Cons

    Very impersonal, employees treated like just a number
     management is not open to feedback or ideas and does not care about your input or opinions

     highly unorganized across several departments
     extremely high turnover rate and many unhappy employees
     doesn't care about the safety of their staff
     too structured - uses opposite of person-centered approach with patients

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees, listen to their feedback and treat them as human beings, not as just a number. Improve communication across shifts and between different departments. Be more organized when it comes to scheduling an interview - process was so disorganized I almost turned down the offer. Showed up to scheduled interview and my interviewer never showed. Rescheduled and received a call stating would have to reschedule again (time, date, and interviewer reported in the call were all incorrect).

    I have been working at Rogers Memorial Hospital (Oconomowoc) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The feeling of helping those and their families during their struggles. Including imminent and chronic dangers and/or struggles.

    The building is welcoming and it doesn't give you the feeling of a psychiatric hospital.

    Cons

    The turnover is extremely high, which adds so much stress to those who stay. The needing to constantly train new staff only to see them quit too because they either can't handle the stressors of the job or they simply get burnt out fast. I've heard it time and time again, they leave because the pay doesn't match the responsibility, education needed, and work load.

    Most jobs within the organization require a minimum of a bachelor's, but the pay is entry level regardless of your education and years of experience. The pay simply doesn't match the work load and stress.

    Growth is seldom, if you're content working in a position for a decade until a new position opens that would be a promotion with pay versus just a lateral move (no pay oncrrase) than you will be happy. However, most of us want to advance in our careers and the opportunities don't come up often.

    Advice to Management

    Creating growth for employees is a must. Employees who are truly dedicated want to see the company succeed, but also want to succeed in their careers. Unfortunately, not much opportunity for growth, which I'm certain is adding to the high turnover.

    Most of us are very dedicated to our patients and the company, but with all the current changes, it is becoming more of an assembly line. This has been impacting patients and staff negatively. I hope the higher staff can see this and place themselves as if it were their loved one with going through this, would they be satisfied how the RIE is treating their family member as a person in crisis or just a number?

    In other words treat staff as humans and we will we give even more to our patients.

    I have been working at Rogers Memorial Hospital (Oconomowoc) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the employees are very nice and it makes for a good work environment.

    Cons

    When I was interviewed I was told that there were ample opportunities to transfer to new positions. Since I have been here I have filled out the paperwork several times for a transfer to different positions and 90% of the time I wouldn't get a response from anybody. The one time I did get an interview I was never contacted for any type of follow-up. When I tried contacting them I would never get a response.

    Advice to Management

    Several of the 'low end' staff have advanced degrees but get treated like they are deadbeats by higher up staff and aren't given the chance to move up in the company at all. This just leads to poor employee retention.

    Pros

    Experience with clients struggling with a variety of challenges across the lifespan, A broad range of clients to serve and learn from, chances to see a lot of different styles of treatment and to learn where your therapeutic style fits, group therapy helps you to obtain hours of licensure quickly, employer is well known in the area, ability to try new things and to gain exposure to a variety of CBT and DBT methods of treatment. You will learn a great number of very useful skills and will have an excellent opportunity to put learning into practice. This is a great place with a great history where you can start out doing good work in your field.

    Cons

    No room for personal growth or professional development, professional development is not supported whether it is attending a presentation or continuing your education so you can better serve the clients, growth is not supported by the institution as a whole despite policies that encourage it nor is growth supported by the management teams, change, and new ideas are not welcome even if it would greatly benefit the clients, little support for staff, high acuity, conditions can be unsafe at times. Expansion means that the minimal support is stretched even thinner and it can feel like it is about numbers and not quality of care. Human resources is ridiculous from the application all the way through termination, they do not respond to questions, and if you manage to get in touch with someone they will pass you around from person to person until you give up on your question or concern.

    Advice to Management

    Live by your mission statement(s). The work you do is good but there are so many agendas and so much expansion that the core of what you do--help clients to grow and change through difficulty--is completely lost.
