    Pros

    Great people to work with. Company values customer service

    Cons

    The company is changing. It once felt like you were making a difference in patient care. It feels like the company now stresses profits more than anything else.

    I worked at SCL Health part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Amazing coworkers within the direct team (at the time / no longer there)
    - Friendly, easy-going, positive manager (at the time / no longer there)
    - Lots of opportunity for creativity in work with direct clients
    - Independence (i.e. not a lot of micro-managing)

    Cons

    - Low pay (average pay relative to other facilities). We didn't call it "Sisters of Scarcity" for no reason
    - Everything takes way too long. Paperwork, hiring, making changes, everything.
    - Hierarchical structure prohibits the ability for non-management employees to have an impact on systemic matters (that are detrimental to the clients )
    - High turn over of employees (likely a direct result of above cons), prevents establishing a connected team, seamless organization

    Advice to Management

    - Become a top paying facility, and you'll get top quality employees, which will result in more money for the hospital and high retention rate for staff. Instead - you've been hiring entry-level employees, underpay them to match comparable hospital positions, and then they either leave within a few years or stay for too long, burn out, underperform, cannot afford the lifestyle they want, and leave. It's sad. Mental Health workers are doing important, difficult, skilled work. They should be paid as such.
    - Listen to your employees ideas and encourage them to have them in the first place for improvements. They are the ones working most closely with the clients who are keeping you in business.

    I have been working at SCL Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Absolutely the most compassionate, competent, and dedicated caregivers I've ever worked with.

    Cons

    SCLHS is most disorganized, fractured, wasteful organization I've ever worked in. "Vision and strategy" is revised before the ink dries on the previous plan. Short sighted leaders spend dollars trying to save a dime. Everything runs about as smoothly as rush hour in Istanbul.

    Advice to Management

    I wouldn't pretend to think they're listening.
