    I worked at Sheppard Pratt Health System full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The experience is unforgettable. If you really invest yourself into the job you can grow exponentially.

    Cons

    Be careful not to burn out. Take lots of time for yourself. Don't expect much professional teaching development. Rely solely on your own ability to self-start and enjoy the lack of accountability. Some of the leadership team/administration are pretty timid when it comes to actually being in the school/classrooms.

    Advice to Management

    Actually get to know what is going on in the school so that you can make improvements based on the reality of the school environment - not leading blindly and making guesses as to what needs to change. That leads to a lot of inconsistency and the staff do not take it seriously.

      I have been working at Sheppard Pratt Health System full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      The best part about this job is seeing the patients benefit from 1:1 conversations from employees who actually care. Coworkers (at the time, most of them left because of change in management and horrible conditions) were also amazing. But that is really it. The CEO was fine but we never saw him, so it was hard to make an assessment. Benefits were pretty good but it isn't worth it for the pay. They make the HR representative...

      Cons

      Management is very unprofessional. Seeing the patients be in a "crisis" and not get the therapeutic help they needed was very upsetting. This hospital lets people who are NOT trained to run groups are responsible for helping patients. While some people had their bachelors degrees, a lot of the time the bachelor degree was in a completely unrelated field. I just do not understand how they can let people with only a high...

      Do better. Care about people and their lives. Incorporate learning opportunities for people who want to learn how to actually help these children.
